A good transport hub manages all available modes of transportation, and pays close attention to the details in order to obtain maximum efficiency - clear signages, perfect timing of the transfers, and a logical floorplan make all the difference.
Websites transmit information rather than people, but the goal should be the same - smooth, articulate delivery of valuable contents. A website should work well with a wide range of devices in order to maximize delivery, and every detail, from the legibility of the code to the miniscule adjustments of line spacing, must be looked after.
I specialize in: design and planning, graphics production (Photoshop, GIMP, Illustrator, Inkscape), standards-compliant and extensible frontend development (HTML5, CSS3, jQuery, LESS/SCSS), backend developent (PHP, MySQL, custom CMS), CMS theming (Wordpress, Drupal, Magento), responsive web, white-hat SEO, and content writing.
A viewer sees the entirety of the page at first glance, from the biggest diagrams to the smallest caption text, rather than having most of it hidden by a window. The resolution of a printed product far exceeds that of even the highest-resolution consumer displays. Technical limitations such as loading times, screen sizes, and browser compatibility issues are nonexistant. And information is presented in a linear and fluid way, dictated by page numbers instead of navigation menus.
Making the most of these these design advantages is a challenge that I am always eager to attack, despite my specialization in web design.

I have experience shooting portraits, weddings, sports, and food. My equipment consists of mostly manual prime lenses, for their superior technical qualities and tactile control over the image; natural light and a compact reflector, because most people are restrained psychologically by large strobes and diffusers; and software capable of extracting the maximum from my 12 bit RAW data files.
I'm also big a fan of analog photography and Kodak 400TX. Digital cannot replicate the dynamic range of film, nor the instinct required in taking and processing pictures the old way.
