Cambre is an empirical photographer of nature, landscape, architecture, the skies and heavens for over 50 years. Cambre and his wife recently moved to Presque Isle, Michigan after living in Texas for 60 years.

The Northeast Michigan dark-skies is the perfect location for his love of astrophotography to flourish. Cambre has created two webinars that cover drones, phones and camera functions, techniques and editing styles.

He has won 3 awards at the Texas State Fair, published a book and placed at a juried exhibition at the Art in the Loft. Whether inches or lightyears away, Eugene is always looking for the details that reveal the magic of the world around us in both stills and video. He views his photography as a Vision that pulls the outside world through the lens and paints it in your imagination. Eugene's astrophotography techniques captures what the eye can't see.
