Photomedia is the future of photography and image creation. As a twenty-first century photographer, no longer just shoot and process the final image in the darkroom; I must understand how the image is being used. These days, the photographer may also play the part of the designer on a project or work collaboratively with a design team. Photographers are being asked to create photo-collages or optimize images for the web or CD/DVD presentations. In order to accomplish this goal a photographer must understand how technology affects the final image.
Photomedia embraces the new media technologies. Today's images may be used for the web, a cell phone, a newspaper, or viewed as part of a high definition presentation. The image must be flexible enough to be utilized in various media, therefore the photographer must know how to create a versatile image.
I start all my projects at high definition standards regardless of the final image usage. By starting at such a high standard I end up with a high quality, flexible final image. Along with producing the final image, I also provide technology consulting about website design, web promotion, hardware / software issues, as well as resource research for your organization or personal needs. Photomedia, in essence, is about finding the right technology solutions for you, the client.
