THE STORY BEHIND EAGLEYE PHOTOGRAPHY
Hello! My Name is Matthew Schonewille and welcome to my Kickstarter page. I am a professional photographer located in Southern Ontario; I am passionate about sharing the beautiful world around me through photography.
For the past 5 years I have been focused on shooting weddings where I captured over 130 weddings and took over 700,000 images. I loved my clients but I was rather limited to spread my creative wings. Now I – “Plan, Shoot and Share” my photos with thousands of people, while teaching other professionals about what it means to be a successful artist in their business.
WHY THE CITIES AT NIGHT PROJECT?
I am now transitioning my business to a fine art photography business and one key thing I need are many more beautiful photos, specifically long exposure photos. Long exposure photography is a technique where the camera takes an image over a period time producing stunning results, specifically at night. This project is set up to allow me to pay for a trip to Montreal and Quebec City where I can capture those stunning cities at night and produce more material for my fine art canvases and prints. Eventually I do have more trips planned but that is for another Kickstarter campaign. 🙂
The images I have posted are some examples of long exposures at night and I hope they give you a sense of what I can produce as a photographer. I would LOVE to get one of my images on your wall so you can live that moment over and over.
WHERE IS YOUR MONEY GOING?
Your money goes into three main categories being food, fuel and accommodations. This trip is going to cost approximately $1000.00 where I will be on the road for 5 days and 4 nights, traveling over 8 hours to my destination and over 2400 km’s in the trips entirety. I’ll be staying in a Vacation rental which is more cost effective than a hotel and doing a lot of scouting and prepping for my night shots. Your pledges will be accounted for and you will know exactly where your money is being spent. Transparency is KING.

If I’m fortunate enough to achieve my target then I am offering two stretch goals which will give you more for your money.
