Through the lens with Ross Eason
Ross is our amazing photographer who uses his skills to capture and document these special events so we can keep spreading the word further!
Ross started his career in Sydney working in the commercial and advertising genres. After getting caught in a traffic jam that lasted 15 years he moved to the Sunshine Coast in 1991 and established a new business again in commercial advertising and specialising in the tourism, resort and property development sectors.
He is a member of the Australian Institute of Professional Photography, served on the board for 7 years, 2 of those as National President. He achieved the distinction Master of Photography by the AIPP, awarded Honorary Life membership and 2018 was made an Honorary Fellow of the AIPP for services to the profession.
As a commercial and advertising photographer Ross has worked for clients both nationally and internationally illustrating a broad range of products and services, his skills with location and studio lighting have been refined over many years to ensure clients receive distinctive images designed to highlight the unique qualities of their product.
Ross shares some fun facts with us about his passion for wine, food and travel:
Favourite food? It’s not pumpkin and it’s not beetroot.
Favourite place to travel? Anywhere that involves a backpack.
What three people would you like most to invite to a dinner party? Fantasy list (two are dead) – Nelson Mandela, Barack Obama, Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Reality list – Jacinda Ardern, Magda Szubanski and Dame Quentin.
What do you enjoy doing when you’re not working? Hiking with my wife.
Most valuable piece of advice you’ve ever received? 60 per cent of the view is behind you.
If you were to describe your personality as a wine, what sort of wine would you be and why? A Dry White.
Why have you chosen to support this event and SunnyKids? The strength of any community is in what people give to it rather than what they earn from it. My wife and I have been fortunate so now is our time to give back.
