My interest in photography came in a roundabout manner. Trained as a physicist, I learned photography in order to create my own media for an electronic physics laboratory manual I was writing. I initially engaged in studio work to shoot QuickTime VR object-spin movies, progressed to shooting interactive VR panoramas, then to general landscape and street photography. My present specialties are high-resolution stitched panoramic landscapes (up to several gigapixels in size), spherical panoramas (360° around and from up to down), and VR object-spin movies for museum artifacts or commercial products. I apply my skills from gigapixel panos to created high-resolution images of flat artwork (paintings, graffiti, etc.) I am based in the southeastern US, but travel regularly to Central America.
