Name // Kel Morales (@kemikulz)
Hometown // Originally from the Philippines, been living in Sydney for 3years now in the Inner West.
Day Job // IT professional
Camera and lenses // I’m mainly using Olympus OMD-EM5 with 12-40mm 2.8 PRO Lens which is perfect for outdoors because it’s weathersealed. Also using 17mm and 45mm 1.8 lenses; and sometimes GoPro4.
InspirationS // Nature inspires me, a lot. Seeing photos these amazing and beautiful places being explored by other people makes me want to just go on adventures all the time. I’ve always loved discovering and exploring new places and it makes me feel alive. It makes me realize how big the world is and that there are a lot of opportunities out there.
I love taking on challenges and getting out of my comfort zone. I also always strive to be able to capture the beauty of a place (even though seeing it personally is definitely more rewarding!) and share it to other people, and maybe I can inspire them to also get out and explore more.
Dream photography location in Australia // I’ve been to the outback twice but I’m still keen to go and explore more – maybe NSW or WA outback next time. The outback is such just an amazing place to explore and shoot in, every area is just different. Another dream area to shoot would be in Cradle Mountain in Tasmania to catch some Aurora Australis.
