Creative Individuals Who See No Boundaries.
Name – Gab Scanu
Where you from? – Sydney, Australia
Current Employment – I am a full time Photographer and Director
What do you shoot with – I primarily shoot with a Canon 1DX Mark II and for all my aerial I use either A DJI Phantom 4 or Mavic Air
How did you get started / Was there a moment you remember first falling in love with photography?
I’ve been taking photos for as long as I can remember, if I had to put an age on it I would say probably about 12 years old. When my parents bought me my first camera in high school I remember going out and experimenting with long exposure images around moving water. Seeing how surreal and epic you can make something so ordinary look made me fall in love with capturing images.
What was your first big gig?
One of the first gigs I remember getting was a campaign for one of Australia's biggest wineries in South Australia. I went on to shoot campaigns and jobs all over the world but from memory that was the starting point for me.
What are some opportunities you’ve had that wouldn’t have happened without sharing your work on Instagram?
To be honest the majority of my work I think has come as a result of being discovered on Instagram. I think that this day and age the internet is the best marketing tool out there.
Describe your current style.
My work focuses a lot around aerial imagery, vibrant colours and abstract shapes combine to make an epic/cinematic scene.
What other Artists are you currently following?
My close friend Matt Abad (@badboi) his work always inspires me. Also a big fan of Matt Komo’s style (@mattjkomo)
What are some of your goals for 2019?
Travel more, learn more, continue to grow my brand/store and branch out into directing more high end TVC’s.
