Synthetic Tone-photography is a branch of the Synthetic Tone-media network created and owned by Dean C.C. Neitman otherwise known as Synthetic Tone across the internet. It showcases some of my best and favorite pictures shot over the years including images used in my stock photography portfolio and photos shot at events.
My history with photography is long with a different path than most. My education started out with commercial art in which I learned the secrets to creating on point compositions. I also learned the basics of image editing and manipulation using digital tools such as Photoshop.
Later, I entered the newspaper industry for my career and started out in the prepress departments. This was a great experience and really provided a good education for understanding the color process, exposing negatives, and how to proper adjust images for best reproduction in both traditional and digital formats. Here I really learned how to color correct and enhance photos.
Wanting to use my commercial art degree more, I jumped at an opening for advertising artist where I spent a long career with Cox designing everything from race car designs, billboards, t-shirts, direct mail, marketing promos, adverts to animated Flash and HTML5 internet ads as well as landing pages, e-newsletters, and rich media. During that period, I had developed a reputation for my photo instincts and even played the role of editorial and advertising photographer for special needs.
These days, I am still working for Cox at my third newspaper but acting as a digital advertising art director where I oversee projects, develop workflow strategies, troubleshoot and sometimes assist with design on projects. My photography is now more focused on freelance projects where I have handled a few weddings, special events, fashion shoots, portraits, landscape and nature photography, food, and stock photography.
I have stock photography available here for immediate download as well as the option to purchase prints and can be reached for photography services. See my pricing page for a relative idea on costs that are adjusted based on needs.
