LAist intervew: David Bullock aka eecue
You've probably seen his photos on Flickr or around the blogosphere under the name "eecue". A. David Bullock is more than just a talented local photographer, he's also a Search & Rescue volunteer, a practicing blogger, and contributor for our pals over at blogging.la. This interview was originally meant to be part of our 20 Under 30 series this spring, but David was busy getting hitched to a fellow caver.
1. What inspires you as a photographer?
I don't think I've ever found anything I don't like to photograph. I enjoy shooting photos of flowers, people, buildings, factories, industrial landscapes and monkeys, preferably all at once. In photography I am inspired first and foremost by my mother, Rhoda Gordon Bullock, who is has a masters in fine arts and has been a photographer for most of her life. I have recently become enamored with HDR industrial photography. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, and is a technique uses 3 separate exposures offset +/-2EV and combined to create one image with a very high dynamic range that can then be tone mapped in order to display on a computer monitor or for printing.
2. If you could quit programming today and make your living as a photographer, would you?
I really enjoy programming due to it's lack of subjectivity. I don't think I will ever quit programming cold turkey because I really love solving problems and making things work. Photography gives me great pleasure and I'm not sure if I would want to make it my full time profession, but as I've been programming for over 10 years, it may be time to change professions in the near future.
