Though I still love (and have a great respect for) the beauty of pure clean natural photography, on the other hand - I also love fine art, traditional real-media raw materials - as well as cutting edge digital technologies, Hollywood-movie-type special visual effects, matte-paintings, surreal worlds with its unlimited possibilities for an artist .. etc...

Or, sometimes my clients want me to take their photographs ´a bit further´ or - even - to turn them into something else (surreal/fantasy artwork, watercolor /pastel /oil-like painting, drawing/sketch, vector, pin-up style, halftone graphics, HDR/fake-HDR image, hyperrealistic airbrushed caricature, creative collage with graphic-elements, special effects composition, or whatever thinkable photo-based artwork ..) ... or they just wish me to experiment with their images, so as we both see what may come up from their photographs and my artistic vision mixed together ...
And/Or - recently - I am trying to get into ´motion´ a bit, too .. (video-editing, motion design, stop motion, timelapse, animation, interactive design, whiteboard animation, etc. .. ) ..
trying to make my still images .. move ...
