Dion Chapman is a Melbourne based, hobby photographer with over 20 years of experience. I started with Minolta and then moved over to Sony 12 years ago.

I don't have a speciality but enjoy Portraits in studio or on location, nightscapes and night street portraits and lastly travel photography.

For over 2 years I ran the Melbourne Camera Club Portrait Group. Along with works shops around Melbourne and Victoria. Specialising in location and studio portrait workshops.

What is in your camera bag?

Sony A7R II and Sony A7S II along with Sony 12-24 f4, 24-70 f2.8 GM, 70-200 f2.8 GM STF 100, 55 f1.8 and a tonne of batteries...

What is your go to in your Alpha kit and why?

I have a sling bag with the Sony A7R II the 12-24 f4, 24-70 f2.8 GM and the 70-200 f2.8 GM

I have this as it will suit most situations on the go, the f2.8 will allow me to shoot late into the night while the 12-24 is a fun lens to use.

Most memorable moment shooting with Alpha?

Two come to my mind, a road trip from Melbourne to Uluru for the Field of Lights. We went via Lake Eyre which along with Uluru was very spiritual and amazing.

The second was two weeks in Japan with my son seeing the amazing sights and taking so many pictures.
