In the weeks and months that follow I will not only be sharing some of my images but also some life stories I have come across. Rome was not built in a day, so this site will constantly be updated and refined, with phenomenal assistance of my wife, Candice, who has been my anchor and right hand throughout.
So, a little bit about myself. My name is Eugene Stalmeester. I have studied business and work as an accountant for a civil engineering firm. I love my job and strive everyday to do it to the best of my God-given ability.
The name: Why Eugene Henry Photography? Well, the “Henry” part is my middle name and also my grandfather’s. He was a man dedicated to a cause, determined and hard-working. He always believed that he needed to leave a bigger legacy for his offspring than what was handed to him. Well, it’s great having such a powerful destiny attached to my name and even more of an honour using it as a business name.
A few years ago, my wife bought me a point-and-shoot, which brought hours of fun. It was here that the photo bug bit me. I would snap almost everyone and anything, not really taking much note of the composition and quality of the images. I then upgraded to a single lens reflex, which just brought the images to life. So, for now, I’m having fun, focussing on shooting studio and location photography. I love macros and photographs with a slightly abstract feel.
I simply love showing off the magnificence of God in my photography, especially with light. He was the One who, in fact, created it! (Hence, the phrase in the top
right corner) We’ve added some of my favourite images running as a slide show for your enjoyment. So, this is but a few lines (the start of many) and I hope you’ll be coming back to visit again.
Looking foward in sharing this journey with you…
