"Hello and Welcome"
Brendan here, you have landed on my Photography website
Yes, Pixology Digital Art is my Photography
Maybe like you, I have used a variety of cameras over the years, ranging from Kodak film, through to point-and-shoot digital cameras
In 2007, when living in New Zealand, I became more serious about photography, when a company I worked for sponsored the New Zealand Porsche GT3 Racing Series
In 2009, I followed the series around the South Island and documented the races and events on a DVD with still images and music. The DVD was used at head office for promotional and sponsorship events
In 2013, I brought my first Canon DSLR body, plus a couple of lenses, and away I went
My Photography and Photographer journey moved forward in a bigger way
Living in New Zealand, a land of awesome images around every corner. It was a fantastic place to live, and to expand my photography experience, knowledge, and image gallery
In late 2016, I returned to Australia where I live on the Surfcoast in Victoria. Torquay is my home town, it's an area where I have family history and connections
Living close by iconic locations, including Torquay, Bell's Beach, Point Addis, Jan Juc, The Otway’s, and Great Ocean Road
“There are opportunities most days”
As a Photographer, do I have a preference for Photography or subject matter?
Maybe I do, what I do enjoy, is in "My Art Portfolio"
When I’m out and about, enjoying the world we live in, I’m always seeking to capture the ultimate image
One, that has near-perfect composition, that has complementary colours, light, lines, contrast, and shade
I’m also a fan of abstract Photography, and the freedom Adobe Lightroom gives to be a little more creative in post-production
In some ways, chasing the perfect image is like chasing the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow
Every day is a new opportunity for the growth and development of new photography techniques
I believe in the Japanese Wabi-Sabi Principle:
The imperfection in something is the perfection we seek, or perfection is found within the imperfections we see
I'm not a Photographer who is aiming to sell thousands of copies of the same image, so if you decide to buy an image, it would be limited to 20 or fewer prints printed
My ultimate goal is to produce or create, what is classified as
Fine-Art Photography, be recognized for my work in some way or form, and continually grow as a Photographer
Appreciate the world we live in
Thank you for taking the time and reading about me
My aim in photography: Is to create an image, that has uniqueness, tells a story, and in some way connects!
