A quick picture of Photographer Callan Wallace. I have been taking photographs for as long as I can remember. I took my first photography class when I was 14 years old. I continued taking classes until I finished high school. I then worked as a portrait photographer for a year but soon found myself burning out. After a short sabbatical I started to shoot again. I have had several shows in a gallery and sold limited edition fine art prints. I have been living in Fiji for over 14 years. During this time I have had to give up shooting film as the humidity and tempeture do not agree with negatives and prints. Since leaving film I have rediscovered my photography through the digital revolution. After learning to shoot digital with point and shoot cameras I then moved up to a DSLR. I now use a Canon 5D and a 24-105mm Lseries lens for all of my work.
I have since left the DSLR and am now shooting with a Galaxy S3 phone with an 8 megapixel built in camera. I take pictures of what moves me. I focus on images that I find unique in shape, pattern, color and texture. I look for faces that tell a story. I do not use long lenses for the sole reason it makes me have to engage my subject. Whether it is a person who I will have to communicate with to get a good shot or an object that forces me to physically move towards it and out of my own comfort zone. I feel that this give my images a more real feel to them. I am constantly learning and exploring with my photography. Change is constant and I am constantly changing.
