Be sure to check out my new blog, Euler Angles. It's all about perspective, photography and the world. The name comes from a mathematical term used to describe a direction and orientation in space. The direction you point a camera (or telescope) are examples of Euler angles. For an airplane in flight, Euler angles are called pitch, yaw, and roll.
I'm a photography enthusiast with special interest in landscape and urban photography. But it might be more accurate to say I'm interested in capturing (not merely documenting) aspects of ordinary life, and that includes the world in which we live. That's actually something that's puzzled me for some time. Am I a landscape photographer? If so, why should I also be interested in such things as people at work or urban photography? I eventually came to understand that landscapes are expressions of the world as we see it and experience it.
You can buy prints of much of my work at GregWoodhouse.imagekind.com, or you can order greeting cards printed with these same images. You can also see much more of my work online at Flickr.
I am a longtime resident of the California central coast and work as a software engineer specializing in medical informatics (computers in medicine). Though my work is scientific, I've enjoyed the arts as an observer and listener for a long time, and purchasing a digital SLR lead me to actively pursue photography as art.
I grew up in Santa Cruz, California, an area that continues to occupy a central place in my work; but ironically, it was a trip to Big Sur (not far to the south) that really crystallized my interest. I had a lot to learn, both about the mechanics and the aesthetics of photography. But then the engineer in me made learning to use a camera on the one hand, and digital image processing on the other, all the more interesting. Rather than feeling intimidated by chemicals and darkrooms, I found that computers, electronics and optics were enticements, not obstacles to be overcome. By the way, I absolutely do not mean to disparage film. I think it's a wonderful medium, and one that I've come to recognize of late that has had a real influence on my work.
