I have been involved in various types of imaging since 1976. My initial introduction into imaging was with G.E. Medical Systems selling X-ray equipment to hospitals. These were the early days of digital imaging including Nuclear Medicine Cameras, CT Scanners, Ultrasound and Digital Subtraction Angiography. Today, most major hospitals have gone to digital completely.
In between employment with various medical equipment companies, I sold color copiers and printers with both Xerox and a Dutch company called Oce. It is here that I learned the basics of Photoshop and the quality color production using a seven color printer. Most color and black and white copiers and printers are now digital and accept computer inputs of both text and graphics.
After experiencing frustration with the huge file sizes various graphic houses were generating, drastically reducing throughput of the printers, I decided to learn more about graphics by attending a Graphic Design school on-line. In 2007 I graduated with a Certificate in Graphic Design and was inducted into the Delta Epsilon Tau Graphic Design Honor Society. It was in the Graphic Design curriculum that we learned how to replace colors in photos and paintings with computer-generated colors. The effect is to produce a work that pops out at you.
At the oldest beer bar in Long Beach, Joe Jost"s I showed a friend, Laura a computer rendering I had done. She suggested some other projects, including Yacht Clubs, Tommy Trojan and private homes. Laura was the inspiration which motivated me into this business. Thanks Laura.
