First Prize Winner: Kai Wright

Follow Kai on Instagram @ke_kaimalino

Kai Wright’s photography inspiration comes from the warm Hawaiian waters of Maui; where he lives with his wife and two sons.

You can find him in the waves snapping shots of the tubes and other ocean life. To create this shot he is shooting with a GoPro but also uses the Nikon D7100 and Nikon D810 in his workflow.

Recently switching to larger cameras, he is realizing the large file sizes are quickly filling up his computer’s storage space. With the Drobo 5Dt, he will now be able to expand to a volume size of 64TB and utilize Thunderbolt 2 speeds. The unit is also packed with a mSATA SSD for a performance boost and 6TB Seagate IronWolf Pro NAS hard drives that are enhanced with AgileArray technology for optimal reliability and system agility.

John Oisin Atkinson, based in New Zealand, strives to capture split-second, moments in time. Recently, he has started to shoot black and white street photos and experiment with light painting using molten steel wool.

With a full family of four, his top priority in photography is ensuring that his family photos are safely backed up. The Drobo 5Dt and Seagate IronWolf Pro NAS hard drives will provide peace of mind for his family and business. The Drobo 5Dt includes three years of DroboCare, providing additional protection, and the IronWolf Pros include two years of Seagate’s Rescue Data Recovery Service for the ultimate peace of mind.
