About Iori

Hello there.

I'm Philip Avellana, you can call me Iori (ee-yo-ree).  I’m a photographer and cinematographer based in Sydney, Australia.  As a photographer, I photograph landscapes, travel, portraits, glamour, fashion and weddings.  As a cinematographer, I focus on weddings and corporate events. I apply various techniques to my photos and videos.  I believe that your deliverables (either photo or video) are more important than your workflow.  The deliverables should follow the vision of the creator.  Thus, I will learn Photoshop, Premiere and After Effects if that satisfies my clients.

Like many landscape photographers, portraits and people are my weakness.  So I decided to study this genre of photography so that I can get better people photos.  I learned the basics and now striving to be better at it.  I love doing portraits of singles, families and groups of people.  I love to show their personality, the honesty in their gestures and bring out the inner beauty.  As I gained confidence, I even ventured towards glamour and fashion.  Although the lights, techniques and gears could be used to both, they are very different from each other.  I also share what I learned from portraits, glamour and fashion in this blog.

I started to do wedding photography 4 years ago.  But it was on and off.  Out of the four years, I can only say I accumulated two years of it.  As a main photographer, it is hard work.  Among all the photography projects I’m doing, weddings would be the hardest of them all.  Honestly, I still love it and I’d like to shoot weddings going forward!

To step up my game in landscape photography, I bought a drone.  I fly my quad copter on open landscapes and grab some amazing aerial photos.  As I’m taking photos, I’m also capturing video.  The video part caught my curiousity and pulled me in.  Currently, I’m branching out to cinematography and taking it seriously.  Like my wedding photography gears, I’m now investing on videography.  I would like to take videos of products, people and events.  This includes product showcase, interviews, weddings and other forms of cinematography that I can freely do.

Currently, I have a wide range of tasks that I can do on my own.  Since I have the gears, I don’t rely on borrowing and renting stuff.  I’d like to do the following:

Cinematography – weddings, music, corporate, product, commercial
Photography – weddings, corporate, commercial, portraiture
Personal Project – landscapes and travel

If you like my work and would like to collaborate, please feel free to contact me.  I’m looking forward to discuss the work with you.
Thank you

About Adventscape

I am a self taught photographer and cinematographer.  Many had contributed to my knowledge for free.  Thus I created this website to show others what I've learned and what I can remember from my studies (I'm notoriously forgetful).  Since I’m keeping notes to myself, why not just share it to those who want the same information.

Since I’m doing several stuff all at the same time, the content of this website would be a mixture of landscapes, portraits, glamour, gears, reviews and cinema.  Hopefully as time passes by, the topics will be more structured and organised.  But it’s hard to tell as I can do all of them anytime, anywhere.  They are also interellated with each other thus it’s kinda hard to separate.

But essentially, this website is about tutorials, reviews and client showcase.  The information should be pretty helpful especially if I managed to answer your questions on one of my blogpost.  If you have further questions to ask, feel free to leave a comment or send me an email.

Blogger is the core of this website.  I know many are aiming for Wordpress (.org), but I plan to keep it with minimal expense as possible.  Blogger is completely free and the only expense I have is my domain name: adventscape.com.  Tumblr is a good alternative as well - you can customise it and it’s free.  But I chose Blogger as its part of Google’s free suite of web services.
