One of My Fav Photographers

Places I’ve Been, and want to go…

 

 

Yes, I’m as lazy as my dog…

I love all things tech and I work in Los Angeles supporting the network and server systems at a specialty staffing agency. Hey, it’s better than growing alpacas for a living! ;-)

I ride the razor thin line between insanity/reality in an online/offline world. When I feel the need to retreat to my place of zen for some quality “ME” time, I immerse myself in all things photography related.

My image gallery displays some of the fruits of my dysfunctional labor of love as a photographer. It’s the good-the bad-and the oh so ugly of my foray into the art of capturing light. Like most things in life and on this website, my skills are a work in progress.

My Digital Darkroom

 

A shot of my post processing setup. The extra gear aside from the computers & screens is a Drobo for central mass storage, assorted external drives, and video post production gear for when I edit in Final Cut Studio. Not shown is my trusty 15” Macbook Pro that goes with me in the field for edits, CF card offloading into Aperture, etc. a second Drobo that I use for Secondary Aperture Vault & Lightroom Catalogue Backups, and a 2TB Buffalo Terastation NAS for secondary data backups of  all digital assets. When I need the ultimate in portability but still need the flexibility for for edits, CF card offloading into Aperture, etc. I use the featherweight MacBook Air 11” along with a Wacom tablet. This combo is proving to be very useful, without adding too much weight. I use the DataColor Spyder 3 to calibrate all my displays  for accurate color rendition, and the Datacolor Spyder Cube for calibration in the field.

 

For pixel pushing, I use multiple packages depending on the intended finished image:

Aperture 3.1

Adobe CS5 Master Collection

OnOne Perfect Photo Suite 5.5

Nik Plugin Collection

Topaz Labs Plugin collection

Portrait Professional 10 Studio
