Evan Sycamnias was first introduced to photography when he was only eight years old. By age nine, he had made his own camera and was processing black and white prints in a small makeshift studio. By age 13, much to his exhilaration, he was bestowed the family’s Agfa Isola I, a medium format film camera (120mm) made in Germany – which he still possesses to this day.

For Evan, photography (and later videography) was a way to capture breath-taking moments and present them in a form that remained timeless, allowing others to experience events as though they had been there for themselves.

For more than 10 years Evan was a part of the exciting world of high-speed off-road racing, where he spent a large portion of his time managing ‘Team MudRhino’ – a creative group with 15 members who produced more than 45 full-length DVDs. These productions were sold globally and earned the group several awards – including the prestigious CCDA ‘Media of the Year Award’ in 2008.

In 2016, his attention was turned to landscape photography, and he spent a large proportion of his time travelling the globe to remote locations including the Himalayas, India, China, Egypt, South and North America, and Singapore. Many of his images received awards and recognition, and some went on to be featured in magazines.

Today Evan spends his time mentoring aspiring photographers; overseeing one of Australia’s largest photography forums; consulting with small businesses on building social media content; undertaking photography of private functions such as engagements and weddings, and most importantly he seeks to inspire his own children to find their inner artistry with a lens.
