Colin J. Pearce

Colin J. Pearce is an award-winning, Adelaide-based photographer and filmmaker who has used the Sony mirrorless system since 2010. He has been involved in photography since he was 6 years old with an old Brownie camera. The magic of seeing his view transform to a print inspired him.

Right through high school he was in the photography club and the darkroom club. In 1990 he bought his first Sony video camera, and gradually became interested in filmmaking. While he was living in Brisbane he did an Advanced Diploma of Screen.

In 2010 Colin bought his first Sony E-mount stills camera, the NEX-5, to get travel photography with a large sensor but incredibly small size and weight. In 2012 he bought the Sony a99 full frame camera, but after a trek in China in 2015 decided to change completely to the Sony APS-C E-mount cameras to keep weight to a minimum, but still allowing lens interchangeability with his Sony E-mount movie cameras.

With his Sony 4K E-mount video cameras he makes feature films and music videos. With his Sony stills cameras he mainly does travel, landscape and some portrait photography. Colin is an adventure traveller, having completed a 17-day trek to Mt Everest in 2017, giving him a range of spectacular photo opportunities. However as President of the Port Adelaide Camera Club he is involved in most forms of photography.
