Hi and welcome, it’s great to have you here! A little about me and what started this whole EyePicture thing.
I think I was 16 when I first bought an SLR camera, a Ricoh KR-10M. It wasn’t the most amazing camera on the planet, but it went everywhere with me and kept me broke developing roll after roll of film. Back in those days I was skateboarding daily, and most of my shots were naturally of skateboarding. To me, there was nothing like picking up my prints or slides from ‘The Duck Pond’, the print house in Adelaide that I went to. Most of the time they were pretty good, but as with film, and not being able to ‘chimp’ the back LCD screen of the camera (because it didn’t have one), every now and then they were a bit ordinary! But that was all part of it.
Time went on and in the early 2000’s I started making skateboarding videos under the company name ‘Five O Videos’.
Fast forward to 2010 and the purchase of my first DSLR, the Nikon D90. Here we go again! Fast forward once again to 2012 and the purchase of a D7000, soft boxes, multiple speedlites, studio strobes, lenses worth more than…. well you get the picture, and that’s where EyePicture was born. Once again photography had become my obsession, and with digital equipment improving in leaps and bounds it’s a pretty exciting time to be involved.
These days I shoot as much as I can, sometimes every afternoon when the light is good, or when I’m lucky enough to get a portrait or automotive booking. My current camera body of choice is the Nikon D800, an amazing camera that has enabled me to push my skills just that little bit further.
In early 2016 I bought a Horizon Hobby Blade Chroma 4K camera drone. It wasn’t too bad, but a little flaky on the transmission side of things but it got plenty of use. In April 2017 I purchased a DJI Mavic Pro and this little drone changed aerial photography and videography for me forever! Rock solid performance, a range of 7 kilometres and with autopilot missions available through 3rd party apps this became my new favourite toy (and still is).
So there you go, I hope that wasn’t too boring! Please have a look around the site, and leave a comment if you have the time, oh and if you see something you love, why not purchase it? 😉 I would love to have some of my art on your wall.
