“I love the relationships I’ve established with the brands, as so often it’s not just a business relationship but an incredible collaboration with those who have a shared passion with photography, adventure or simply having a creative flare,” says Wright.
One of Wright’s most recent projects is for Canon Australia & Canon USA.
“I was given a brief by Canon to see what I could do with the 1DX MII. After the camera’s launch, Canon was craving content that could show off the camera and demonstrate what was possible. I pitched them a photo shoot involving hanging speedlights from a drone whilst photographing kayakers run over 30 – 60ft waterfalls in Washington State, USA. The shoot was a 3 day epic adventure.”
Canon Australia and USA were incredibly impressed with the results of the shoot along with the viral syndication collecting over 250k views online across various streams.

I achieved the nickname, a child of the universe. I have not rented a home in over 5 years as I am constantly traveling throughout the whole year. I have this insatiable desire to explore the far flung corners of this earth. Where this curiosity was born, I’m not entirely sure. Perhaps it was flicking through National Geographic magazines as a kid and being hypnotised by the images from around the world.”

“My biggest fear in life is regret. Photography creates my purpose to seek out adventures around the world. It gives me the ultimate tool in how to engage with the world around me and ultimately communicate these experiences visually.”
