TasView: based in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia.
TasView is now a showcase of photography by Tone Bacon, born in Hobart on the beautiful island of Tasmania, at the southern edge of the world!
Launched in 2014 after many problems with my first UAV, this site focused on sharing drone troubleshooting, technical information, tips and a place to showcase my aerial video and photography.
From 2020, the content is being broadened to include my land-based photography formerly branded as edgetas. It makes sense to put all of my images under one name – TasView is more descriptive of the direction I wish to head, primarily showcasing my island home, its unique qualities and diversity and perhaps some more commercial / professional work.
While I shoot many landscapes, I don’t limit myself to any particular genre and love testing out many photographic styles and editing techniques (Fine Art Photography) – only constrained by my imagination, knowledge, budget and gear. I also love tinkering with electronics and gadgets so for me, getting a camera in the air on a drone I built was an awesome opportunity to capture images from another viewpoint.
Photography motivates me to explore the world around me, find waterfalls and fungi in muddy creeks deep in the bush, see beauty in stark architecture, literally chase light – across a mountain or someone’s face and I’m constantly trying to improve the outcomes, both technical and artistic. I think that is why photography has kept me interested for so long, you can really never know it all and it often surprises you.
I rarely take photos for anyone else, I do it because I love it. But I do hope they bring joy to others and maybe inspire you to pick up a camera, and give it a shot!
