Meet Mike Lutke

A quick scroll through his Instagram feed says a lot about the type of photographer Mike Lutke (or @delorean_mike) is. He’s travelled this great province extensively, taking photographs as souvenirs, but he always comes back to the place he’s lived for 31 years. He is proud to call Surrey his home.

Having spent over three decades as a Surrey resident, Mike has managed to call almost every neighbourhood in Surrey his home at one time or another. Having an interest in photography for as long as he can remember, Mike knows all the spots in Surrey to capture that perfect moment. Most weekends you can find Mike out exploring Surrey’s many beautiful parks, they’re a photographer’s dream because each park offers something a little bit different from the other.

Mike is able to look past the usual sights and focuses more on the smaller things that make this such a great place to visit and live, and we will be treated to his photographs all week long because he’s taking over our Instagram account (@discoversurreybc)! From cascading branches at Tynehead Regional Park, to ducks and turtles basking in the sun, his photos capture life in Surrey perfectly.

Mike will also be co-hosting an Instameet with us on October 8th from 12:00pm to 3:00pm at Tynehead Regional Park. Everyone and anyone who has an interest in photography, parks, or meeting new people are invited to join in the fun. Meet at the Tynehead Hatchery parking lot just before noon with your camera and running shoes (and the trails are dog friendly… just saying)!
