Born in Geelong, Monte Luke worked as an actor on stage before developing an interest in photography. Theatre manager J.C. Williamson commissioned Luke to take portraits of stage actors and publicity shots of plays, and in 1915 he directed three features. Following this, Luke set up a photography studio, eventually becoming one of Australia’s leading photographers. Ref: Wiki.
