I am an Electrical Engineer, having graduated from The University of Texas in Austin with a B.S.E.E. degree in 1986, while specializing in Computer Engineering. This is my career, and this is how I pay the bills. But hey, this is a web site about my adventures in photography, not about electrical engineering!
I spend all of my free and leisure time exploring this fascinating skill set known as photography. Photography is more than just a hobby to me, though! I am registered with the state of Texas as an actual photography business, and I am fully insured, (liability and equipment).
I am still exploring the many different types of photography, and getting a feeling for which type(s) I want to specialize in after I retire from my engineering career.
Right now, I would really like to take on the challenge of commercial photography assignments, where I would be called on to make the photos of the products, facilities, and employees that a company needs for its web site or other printed marketing material.
I have been using using multiple portable Canon Speedlite flash units for quite a while, and find them to be quite useful, as well as fun to play with. I also have four radio-triggered studio strobe lights, complete with a full set of lighting modifiers.
I have been a member of National Association of Photoshop Professionals since 2007. I am also a contributing photographer to iStockphoto, and you can see the photos that I sell through them by clicking here.
Helpful hint: You can click on almost any image on my web site to see it larger, but then you should use the “Back” button on your web browser to return to where you were.
I hope that you enjoy seeing my photos on my web site. If you do, then please let me know about it! If not, that’s OK too. If you want to let me know how bad my photography is, then feel free to do that too…
And I promise that this is the absolutely last mention of my engineering skills here on my web site: Here is a photo taken in late 2002 of a printed circuit board that I designed and layed-out. The photo was taken with a 3.1 Megapixel Sony digital camera.
