They show what a healthy marine environment looks like.

Persona

A portrait should represent your likeness and evoke your emotional energy.
That is my goal when making your portrait.
I  think of your portrait as being an image representing the outside and inside of you.  A single image if made with focus and connection can be a true representation of your persona. However, no manner how successful the single image is it will not represent the whole truth of who you are because you are way too complex.  At the moment the photograph is made you may be open and the still image can communicate that openness.  You may also be quiet, cautious, and have wit, chances are the single picture will not communicate all of those aspects of your persona.  When making your portrait I will guide you to being present in the moment and not get concerned about trying to show all the aspects of your persona.  Let’s be satisfied with getting one image that reflects who you are.
When you open your spirit and allow your energy to move and I focus my attention and spirit we can connect in 125th of a second to create an image that communicates your persona.
My Portrait Studio is located in downtown Sarasota at 1338 Central Avenue, Sarasota, FL 34236.  I’ve put a lot of intention into creating a space that is warm, comfortable and safe with the goal that you will feel good about having your portrait made.  I look forward to working with you to “capture” your persona. 
To schedule a time to make your portrait contact me; WayneEastep@Gmail.com  or call 917.675.0640.

2017 Great American Total Solar Eclipse 

Sarasota, Florida U.S.A.

Latitude 27.341274 Longitude -82.82267

2 pm to 4 pm Eastern Standard Time

August 21, 201
80% coverage of the sun by the moon

While photographing the 2017 eclipse on Lido beach in Sarasota, Florida a gentleman from Ireland came up to show me his watch and asked, what do you think is going on”? The minute and hour hands were moving on their own spinning freely on the face of his watch.

Two women walked along the beach each with a Cheerios cereal box with two holes cut into the narrow end of the box making it a pinhole viewing device for safe viewing of the eclipse.

A woman from Argentina wanted to know if that was a fisheye lens.  “Yes”, I answered.  “I thought so, I learned about that in a photography class I took”, she said.

Two women from South America sat down on a towel beside me.  After awhile they asked, “has it started or is it finished”.  I answered, “it’s about 75% complete”.

A man who had been walking in the surf came up and asked, “Can I take a look”?  “No, I am working” I answered.  “I see, ok” he replied and walked back into the surf.

Having seen images of other total eclipse’s I was eager to see the corona around the sun. Lesson one in photography, often what you think you’ll photograph won’t happen. So it was with this eclipse, no corona.  The second lesson of photography, stay put and accept what’s before you, move beyond looking and SEE.  I realized I was standing at the water’s edge with the sky above and within this stage set a celestial drama was playing out.  The poetry of earth, ocean, sky, sun, and moon seemed good enough to me.  So I made the images you see here.

2017 Solar Eclipse

I looked down at the edge of the driveway and noticed an inch worm making its’ way into the dirt.  When I examined it I wondered, is an inchworm really an inch long?  When I placed it on a ruler I saw it was three-quarters of an inch, at least this one was.  As I photographed the inchworm it lay still and looked more like a twig, a rather effective camouflage.  Enjoy the up close and personal look at this intriguing tiny creature.

Inchworms are classified in the phylum Arthropoda, class Insecta, order Lepidoptera, family Geometridae.

inchworm, loopers, insects,

Inchworms lack appendages in the middle portion of their body, causing them to have a characteristic looping gait. They are also called loopers.

This inchworm proved to be three-quarters of an inch.  It was very effective at looking like a twig.

Collins residence, 200 square foot dining room, Sarasota, Florida

Ian Collins, the client:     

“I didn’t want a big place,” he says. “I didn’t want to insult any of the things around it.”

Dale Parks, the architect:    

“You don’t want to decimate an established neighborhood with a gargantuan house.”

Wayne Eastep, Photographer:

“After Dale explained the concept for this project I knew it would be  to be a pleasure to photograph.”

Entrance and Cantilever Dining Room


Ian Collins knows glass.  He is CEO of Novum Structures, which builds some of the most innovative structures using glazing in the world: Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, FL; The Palladium Mall, Istanbul, Turkey; MGM City Center, Las Vegas, NV, to name a few.

Architect Dale Parks knows design.  He works within a modern architectural vernacular. His designs have contextual integrity that shows respect for the environment within which they exist.  If I were to use hashtags to describe his work they would include:  #Modern Architecture, #Architecture meets Nature, #Beauty through Design, and #Design with Integrity.

Ian and Dale showed respect for the neighborhood by keeping the scale of the house within the context of the neighborhood.  The living a.c.square footage is 2,800, porch 500 sq. ft. plus  garage. The design solution also built on the idea of connecting the inside of the shelter to the nature outside.  Dale the architect and Ian the engineer and client created a successful relationship between commercial material – the large glass panels by Novum Structures – and a residential shelter connected to nature.

Flower Essence

About the Artist and this exhibition

The signature characteristic of Wayne Eastep’s photography is the ability to express the essence of a subject.  His images go beyond representational pictures to touch the spirit of the subject, evoking an emotional response.  In this exhibition he turns his attention to the exquisite design in nature  and inherent beauty within flowers.

Eastep’s images are commissioned and collected internationally. They garner awards for books, documentary, and commercial assignments.  His intention with each assignment is to go beyond the surface and look inside the subject.  Photography for Wayne is both vocation and avocation. He is driven by a passion for the art of image making.

Exhibition February 4 – May 14, 2015

Sunflower

The sunflower an annual plant is native to the Americas. The flower petals within the sunflower’s cluster are always in a spiral pattern. Generally, each floret is oriented toward the next by approximately the golden angle, 137.5 degrees, producing a pattern of interconnecting spirals, where the number of left spirals and the number of right spirals are successive Fibonacci numbers. This pattern produces the most efficient packing of seeds within the flower head.
