I have had the pleasure of being associated with Ross Eason for over 12 years and he has been instrumental in preparing the photography for 3 separate resorts that I have managed!
These properties included the 5 star heritage listed Grand Hotel Melbourne, followed by the Mercure Resort Great Keppel Island and finally Fiji’s number one resort, Outrigger on the Lagoon . Fiji.
Ross has a wonderful eye for detail and his technical skills are second to none! Most importantly he has the eye of the photographer! He sees images through the lens that we mere mortals, can’t even imagine!
With Ross you get the whole package – wonderful imagery, utmost professionalism, and all of this completed in a timely and businesslike manner!
I have no hesitation in recommending Ross Eason to any developer or Resort owner, seeking photographic perfection at an affordable price!

“I have known and worked with Ross Eason for over 15 years both through my own advertising agency and more recently in my capacity as Director of Brand and Communications at Riviera. During this extended period Ross has shot tourism, property development and luxury boats for me. I use Ross because I know I will always get the outcome I need. I admire Ross’s professionalism and dedication to getting the right result, every time.”

“I have hired Ross Eason for many photos shoots over the years, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a creative, professional photographer. He has worked on varied projects, works extremely well with talent and finds the perfect shot every time, even under difficult conditions. He is easy to work with, creates outstanding results every time. I’d love to work with him again sometime soon!”

I have worked with Ross on a wide range of commercial projects for over 20 years and have always been impressed with his adherence to the communication objectives as well as his ability to cut quickly through problems in an easy-going manner. There is very little left to chance when Ross is involved because he has a great ethic of preparing as much as possible before a shoot. The combination of these qualities along with his artistic and technical prowess means that the end result is always of a high quality and always meets the objectives of the brief.
Ross’s understanding of the objectives of the final photograph means he can be given a brief and left without direction for most commercial shoots. Ross is photographer and art director all in one package – which is rare because creative people tend to get caught up in the artistic expression at the expense of the communication. If he needs to make a decision one way or another he will decide based on the objectives rather than just on artistic merit. This means that on many jobs agency art direction does not need to be an added cost.
I have no hesitation at all in recommending Ross.

In this digital world where anyone who owns a camera thinks they are a photographer, Ross Eason stands out as a true professional.
Ross’s capacity to understand the brief, get the best from talent, handle the technical intricacies and deliver a visual that brings our concept to life makes a Creative Director’s life a lot easier.
Ross was recommended to me when seeking the right photographer for a specialized job, photographing American performance vehicles in studio.
For circumstance outside our control we had to use a studio that was marginal in size. The photo shoot required that each vehicle had to be maneuvered again and again to provide the different angles we needed (We had about 20 cm space on all sides to achieve this) Having worked with many photographers in the past, I know that most would have simply walked out on this very difficult job and told us to call them when we found a suitable studio. Ross did not! I can’t say he was ecstatic about the situation (none of us were) but he took it on as a challenge. I acted as his assistant and was amazed at his attention to detail and his perfectionism. His lighting skills are second to none. As a former photographer (non-studio) I possessed a certain understanding of this art, however, I was absolutely in awe of Ross’ skills and drive to get every single frame exactly right. It took us two 12-hour days to get the job done. Ross worked tirelessly, hardly taking a break and never complaining.
The results of his hard labour: Any client would have been ecstatic with the raw material produced; however, Ross’ post-production skills totally blew us away. He brought the cars to life with an almost 3D-like quality. Especially the interior images are absolutely amazing. We then also used Ross to photograph the large American Fifth Wheel Caravans for the sister-company Crossroads.
Ross’ work speaks for itself but he offers more than just great work. Ross is extremely personable and easy to work with. He listens and then converts one’s brief not only to one’s expectations but surpasses them. He is an absolute pleasure to work with and truly delivers on his promises.
I highly recommend Ross to any business that expects the best and wishes to portrait themselves via their images as professional and of the highest standards. If you want to create a WOW-factor, use Ross’ images for all your promotional materials!
I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Ross for over ten years across 3 diverse resorts. From the 5 Star Gold Coast International Hotel to Mercure Resort Surfers Paradise and the Fiji Hideaway Resort and Spa. I have found Ross’s attention to detail and ability to deliver the required results go well and truly above your expectations. Ross combines creativity, artistic flair and technical know how to produce and capture emotive imagery that ensures your product stands out in the crowd!
