Year 2006 Update: To say 2006 was a big year in my life would be an understatement.. On Sunday March 12, 2006 as I was taking off in my small experimental airplane the engine quit. In the resulting crash among other injuries I broke my back and received a Spinal Cord Injury. I am currently paralyzed from the waist down. I am totally grateful I survived and am continuing to recover and rehabilitate my body. On a daily basis I learn how to adapt and figure out new ways accomplish the tasks it takes to continue my business. I am grateful to have the world's best family, friends, and clients. I am back at work and have a very competent assistant named Marti. Together we make a great team and are taking on opportunities as they present themselves. I have not found anything I cannot adapt a way to "GET ER DONE". Thanks to God, lots of medical personnel, The Shepherd Center, a great lifeflight helicopter crew, and the aforementioned family and friends I am "STILL KICKIN'". Marti and I stand ready to cover any photographic needs you may have. Please let G. Eakle Photography, Inc. be your photographer for whatever your needs may be.
The Camera Equipment - I use a variety of equipment. My main photography platform is a variety of the Nikon Digital DLSR bodies including D300, D200, D1x, D100, and Nikkor Lenses. I have moved exclusively into the digital end of the image capture scene. However I started with and still maintain my Nikon 35mm and Mamiya Medium Format gear for use when needed. (Although I can't imagine when that would be) I maintain a fully stocked studio with a large variety of lighting capabilities, backgrounds, and props. My studio includes a nice outdoor area for portrait and commercial work.
The Aerial Platform - Most of the aerial work I do is accomplished out of fixed wing single engine airplanes of several makes and models. For the immediate future I am not able to take aerial photographs. But don't worry , "I'LL BE BACK!" I just have to work out how to get in and out of an airplane safely and I'll be back at it.
