I’ve been working with Adobe Photoshop since it’s first release for the Macintosh computer in 1990, prior to that I used a program called Digital Darkroom. Initially, I used these programs just to “clean up” images, but over the years I went from simple colour corrections and deletions, to more complex editing such as photo merges that replace parts of an image with something else, or creatively manipulating multiple images to create a whole new, surreal scene. From the practical to the impossible and the whimsical, you’ll see examples of my image editing in my portfolio. In addition to providing this service to my web and print design clients I’ve started doing commissioned work. I can shoot the photography and then edit, or edit your photos. One client supplied me with photos of her son and his girlfriend in superhero costumes... and I then made everyone believe they could fly! And as you can see in some of my samples, cloning is not as impossible as you might think! My only limit is our imaginations... so take a look at my portfolio samples, give me a call and let's make the impossible, possible.
Additional samples will be added to my portfolio on an ongoing basis. Check out this Sweet Deal on your very own photo illusion!
I use the term photo illusionism in my work to convey the idea that what I create, though based in the world of photography, is not completely real. Illusionism was the artistic attempt to paint something very precisely but in a deceptive fashion, Trompe-l’œil, French for ‘deceive the eye’. An ancient Greek story tells of a contest between two renowned painters. Zeuxis (born around 464 BC) produced a still life painting so convincing, that birds flew down from the sky to peck at the painted grapes. He then asked his rival, Parrhasius, to pull back a pair of very tattered curtains in order to judge the painting behind them. Parrhasius won the contest, as his painting was of the curtains themselves.
