The Big Picture...

I've always had a knack for being able to take the occasional good snap shot (haven't most of us?). However I want to take my photography to the 'next level' so I've set myself a goal: mastering property photography.
This blog shares my journey along my way to mastery of property photography, from the outset to where I am now, and gives you the opportunity to get involved too.

Project Status...

Project 52 AU (a project by Evan Walters to photograph 52 Canberra-region properties in 52 weeks) is currently in "pre-season" status and kicks off September 1, 2009.
I am quickly running out of rooms in my own home to photograph. If you have access to a presentable property in the Canberra region I need your help. I'd love to photograph your property for you. Please contact me.

About Me

This is a placeholder for details about me.

Evan Walters loves good photography in all its varied forms. That's probably not surprising considering he purchased his first camera for a school camp at the tender age of ten years old... that's now some twenty years ago! Evan is also passionate about property of all types, having lived in some great (and not so great) properties himself.

Day to day, Evan makes ends meet as a computer geek. His degree in Multimedia introduced him to the world of Adobe® Photoshop® and image editing. Not finding a passion for graphic design he has also tried his hand at teaching Adobe Flash at a private college in Sydney. However his bread and butter lies in Lotus Notes, as an administrator and developer, leading him away from his passion for photography, property, and multimedia. Rather than loose his passion and skill in these areas, Evan created Project 52 AU in June of 2009.

As a property owner himself he understands that whether you are selling or renting your property, you want to ensure the best representation possible. Perhaps nowhere does the phrase, "a picture is worth a thousand words" ring truer. Taking a photo requires only a camera, and someone to point and shoot it. As a property photographer he understands that your home deserves more than a quick 'point and shoot'. Whilst nothing trumps price as the greatest determining factor in how easily (and for how much) your property will sell or rent, capturing a true image of your property requires both the knowledge and skill to truely do your property justice.

Mostly though he likes seeing people smile. He loves that property photography makes people feel great about where they live, regardless of they are selling their old home, buying a new home, or looking to find the perfect tenant or rental.

Here's what a few managers and coworkers have had to say about myself and my work over the last few years:

"Evan was our internal Lotus Notes developer at Cards etc, maintaining and further developing a large number of Lotus Notes databases servicing our offices and clients globally. He was responsive, capable and always a pleasure to work with - handling the pressure of working on multiple projects for multiple internal clients well."
Michael Walters, CEO, Cards etc

"I had the pleasure of working with Evan for a number of years. He was a key member of the team I managed and was always willing and able to get in a do what was required. His positive approach, easy manner and ability to think outside the box were amongst his many strengths. I would be more than happy to work with Evan again anytime."
Richard Batka, Vice President -Operations, Cards Etc Inc.

"It was a pleasure having Evan employed as a Google Quality rater. He consistently completed rating of a high quality. Given the nature of the position, he showed the capacity to work independently with very little guidance."
Joanne Smith

"Evan has been a joy to work with and deals well with customers and colleagues alike. Is always willing to do any task that is thrown at him and his thorough knowledge of Lotus Notes Development and willingness to learn Admin tasks has been a great asset to the team."
Michael Radojkovic, Lotus Domino Engineer, Unisys Australia

"Evan has worked both as a Lotus Notes Administrator & Developer. He has an excellent attention to detail and ensures all work is of the highest standard. He has a willingness to get the job done and always has a "can do" attitude. Evan works well in a team and has a friendly demeanor both towards the client and fellow team members."
Peter Lock, Lotus Notes SME, Unisys
