We know a lot goes into every single shot you take. There’s the scouting, hoping and waiting, the extra cameras and lenses, the carefully planned composition and sometimes even a little bit of luck. The most important element, however, is your creative vision. We spent the last 3 years developing our best monitor calibration tool ever so that you can have ultimate control over your artistic process.

Don’t let all the effort you put into your images go to waste. Let SpyderX give you the confidence that what you see is always what you get in under 2 minutes.

 

We invite you to learn more about how some of our Friends with Vision ambassadors achieved their creative vision.

Ken Sklute - Lightning Church

Behind the Shot

“I was suddenly awakened by a strong thunderstorm one hot summer night in Phoenix. With an idea in mind, I drove directly into the storm and stopped near a church. After two hours of braving the elements, a lightning bolt hit exactly where I hoped it would – right above the church.”

The Photographer

Ken Sklute has enjoyed a diverse career photographing landscapes, people, professional sports, architecture and weddings. He spends much of his time photographing, teaching and lecturing both nationally and internationally. Ken is also a balloon pilot and an avid storm chaser.

Ken Sklute - Aurora Lake

Behind the Shot

“As soon as I landed in Alaska, I drove as fast as I could to a lake near Fairbanks in hopes of capturing the Aurora Borealis. After a few hours in below-freezing temperatures, I was graced with her presence. The trees were illuminated by a boathouse light, the fog was building up over the lake and my shutter was open for just the right amount of time to capture a meteor.”

Richard Peters - Lion

Behind the Shot

“We made our way in the early morning darkness across the vast Kenyan plains. As twilight faded and the clouds began to break, we came upon a pride of lions deep in the long grasses. As the lions awoke, one by one, they moved into a nearby clearing – attracted by a line of wildebeest on the horizon. Suddenly, the sun broke through casting incredibly warm tones on the face of this young lion.”

The Photographer

Richard Peters is an accomplished UK-based photographer. With a focus on wildlife, his style favors dramatic light to achieve a visually striking image. He regularly writes articles for the photographic press, has judged many competitions, leads workshops and has donated images to support conservation efforts.

Richard Peters - Dalmatian Pelican

Behind the Shot

“I watched the sun rise on Lake Kerkini sitting in a fishing boat, surrounded by Dalmatian Pelicans. On this particularly cold day, the air was crisp and clear. The bright, late-morning sun became a natural spotlight highlighting this one bird in particular. The distant shaded mountainside created the perfect contrasting backdrop for this threatened species to stand out.”

David Koester - Patagonia Rush

Behind the Shot

“During my three weeks backpacking through Patagonia, I was determined to find unique places and new ways to portray their beauty. I stumbled upon this location – the silhouette of Fitz Roy, the fall foliage framing it and a cascading glacier river. I knew that to get the right composition, I had to brave the ice-cold water. Holding tight to my tripod and with my feet going numb, I persevered until the blue hour to capture this scene.”

The Photographer

Based in Germany, David Köster is an award-winning landscape photographer. He also teaches photography and has published a book in which he shares his expertise. Nature itself inspires David most as he is fascinated by light and colors, forms and structures of planet earth. David seeks to create emotional images that spark a desire to travel to the magical places he photographs.

David Koester - Nordenskjöld Glow

Behind the Shot

“One evening I discovered there was a chance the rising sun would hit the highest peak of Torres del Paine in a way that would create a dramatic glow. I set out in the middle of the night to position myself to capture this spectacular phenomenon. While waiting, a nearby group of camera-shy vicunas briskly walked out of frame. But to my delight, the mountain then started to glow – making my shutter work hard for those mere few minutes.”

David Crewe - Death Valley

Behind the Shot

“Mid-February in Death Valley can be brutal with temperatures going from balmy to bitterly cold in less than an hour. We endured a 3-hour drive over extremely rough terrain to reach this breathtaking spot and then soon discovered we weren’t prepared for the microsand that got embedded in the camera. But all ended well when this spectacular shot of Eureka Dunes was captured during late afternoon.”

The Photographer

David Crewe’s original passion was as a musician with a love for film and art, so photography was a natural progression. He now shoots freelance photography and writes for multiple photo outlets. David has won multiple awards for photography and has had his photographs published in over a dozen magazines.

David Crewe - Antelope Canyon

Behind the Shot

“Antelope Canyon, like most national parks in the United States, is flooded with people. Capturing naturally pure-looking moments takes a lot more effort when so many people are always around. To capture this amazing shot, I had to drop my tripod and take a long exposure waiting for the people to either be out of frame or simply not seen because of the length of exposure.”
