My name is Malcolm Eugene. I’m a California born, yet Kansas raised photographer and videographer. My sole mission is to freeze time, or at give life a rewind button, so clients can time travel back to their favorite moments. Currently I specialize in concert, cosplay, and portrait-style photography, but have shot just about everything under the sun. Based out of Wichita, Kansas my objective is to offer the BEST VALUE and QUALITY for all your photo and video needs.
I got my start in 2014,shooting for a publication. Shooting with a Nikon Coolpix, and knowing nothing about photography, I walked away from many assignments, with less than sub par images and video quality. Driven to want success, I bought my first DSLR, a Nikon D5300, in February of 2015. Still knowing nothing about photography, let alone the camera I had just purchased, I took to the internet for answers. I came across Jared Polin’s channel where I first became familiar with Aperture, ISO, and Shutter Speed. Shooting RAW, shooting manual, and even shooting with a manual focus Rokinon lens, the learning curve was steep, but not impossible. From there YouTube became my 'Sensei', as I ventured to other photography channels such as Tony & Chelsea Northrup, Jason Lanier, and The Camera Store, just to name a few.
After a year of learning the fundamentals, I knew it was time to turn this hobby into a source of income. I jumped up to the Nikon D610, as well as the nifty Nikon 50mm and Tamron 70-200mm. Coupled with my D5300, I shot my first wedding, and concert, as well as opened up to doing portraiture. I began getting more familiar with shooting video. Learning from channels such as Devin Graham, Cinecom, Parker Walbeck, and Olufemii Tutorials, just to name a couple.
2017 was the year I became more serious about video. I began getting more and more requests to do video projects, so I sold my Nikon D5300, and purchased a Sony A6300. We are in a time where photo and video go hand in hand. And knowing how to do both is a must for any photographer/videographer. Not only does it make it more convenient for my clients, but it pushes my creativity to new heights. As technology advances, so will my learning of my craft.
