Michael Hall, a professional photographer with over 20 years of experience, was Creative Fellow at The Climate Institute July 2012 - September 2014, and continues to be engaged with the organisation through different projects.
Throughout his career, Michael has built a considerable reputation in Australia and internationally as both a fine art and commercial photographer. He was selected as Photographer of the Year in 2006 by the Federation of European Photographers, and in 2004 won the Canon New Zealand Architectural Photographer of the Year. More recently, Michael was announced as a finalist in the Hasselblad Masters 2009.
His fine art work focuses specifically on exploring human impact upon the landscape. Michael invests much time and energy in personal photographic projects – projects that engage with compelling and often confronting issues that ultimately affect us all. He is currently undertaking an extensive project to document the impacts and opportunities of climate change that will eventually include over 300 photographs captured in 40 international destinations. The project has been widely exhibited to date and has received critical acclaim from the likes of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.
