Aside from my photography, I am a professional creative director with more than 25 years of work experience in graphic design and web development.
I have been a photographer since the late 80’s, and have been specializing in the HDR technique as an artistic hobby for the past 5 years. I take pride in the complex post-processing workflow I’ve developed, and I am continually striving to perfect it. I use Photoshop extensively, but avoid using mainstream HDR software and quick default presets, which I hope gives my photos a bit of a unique look. I’m not into expensive equipment or lenses, although I can understand their benefits. If fact, I mostly use a $25 tripod and the lens that came with my camera.
This site contains over 400 of my HDR photos, covering my entire learning curve (i.e., dark photos are from the time before I learned to color-calibrate my monitors, old photos have halos, etc.). It even has the first HDR photo I ever attempted. I do this for fun, but also make prints available for those who are interested.
