About Me and My Studio

In 1990 I started a holography studio dedicated to imaging people in high-definition 3-D. My background was in custom laser design and I realized that every holographic imaging studio in the world attempting to record live subjects (there were only about a dozen) was using a laser totally inappropriate for imaging skin and eyes.

Their collective reasoning was that it was the only laser they could buY and their collective portfolio was fraught with horribly unflattering images that could only appeal to technophiles.Undeterred - inspired actually - by their mistakes, I set out to build a laser-imaging system from scratch that would capture the magic and realism of the human body.
Early on I realized that I was on to something - the reaction to my work by those in the know was overwhelmingly positive. Knowing I had a vastly superior advantage was no guarantor that I would succeed in satisfying the Type-A clients that I had targeted - indeed I spent the better part of a decade in learning how to optimize sittings from individuals who were accustomed to perfection.

My list of evangelists includes literally scores of beautiful women (and their partners) who rave about the studio experience as well as the finished artworks.

My work is all analog - no computers or scanners are involved. The work is produced entirely in my studio using film that supports almost a thousand times the resolution of photographic film or digital cameras. Each finished piece requires a dedicated overhead light source - halogen track lighting being ideal.

The reaction I continue to hear is itís like Iím right inside the glass and this virtual presence is what differentiates my work from any other boudoir, pin-up or erotic images available anywhere.

One of the more difficult aspects in marketing holography is simply "you have to see it".
It is just not possible to convey high-definition, full parallax 3-D via a low-resolution, no parallax 2-D medium. ButÖ. I do my best.
The three images shown above are all taken of the same holograph (I refrain from the underachieving, kitchy hologram and remind people that photographs were in their infancy called photograms). Each photo is taken from a different perspective of the holo to illustrate true parallax: the image changes as the viewing perspective changes in both vertical and horizontal axis.

The screen youíre viewing these photo-representations on has something like a million points of resolution (assuming a grid of ~800 x 1,200) the actual holograph exhibits on the order of 100 gigabits of information (roughly one hundred thousand times more than a high-definition monitor can support).
There is no adequate technique for showing that except to show a detail of the images and to tell you that even under fairly substantial magnification, the holos donít break up in the manner of their photo counterparts. Suffice it to say that the comment I hear most often is ďitís like the person is thereĒ.
