Peter Hammer, Melbourne Member Since June 2007 Artist Statement Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia. I worked for a long time in a research department of a major Melbourne University. I currently work in a small company which manufactures building automation systems (HVAC systems). Photography has been part of my life as a hobby since before becoming a teenager. I switched to digital in 2005 and have been much more active since then. Besides photography my interests involve outdoor activities such as hiking and especially travel which I love. I was married but am now single.
