Photographer: Janko Dragovic
Biography: Janko is a 28-year-old photographer from Perth. He is also a graphic designer, music producer and DJ. When not running the family design and print business or producing and DJ-ing as part of the Progress Inn duo, he captures images of wide-ranging subjects. From landscapes to long exposures, macro to portraits and anything else in between, his approach is to be open to the world around him and capture it all.
Working as a graphic designer means that Janko's approach to photography is perhaps slightly different than traditional photographers. He is not afraid to use advanced post-processing techniques to get his initial RAW images to look like the photographs he envisages. Sometimes the photos are just the building blocks for something bigger, such as his collages. Even though photography is not his primary career, Janko regularly takes on commercial projects as well, such as real estate/architecture, product photography, events and studio work.
