Mimi Weinberg and Dan Clark met while studying photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, but didn't become a couple and business partners until they arrived, separately, in California. If you'd like the long, drawn out version of the story, talk to Dan. If you prefer shorter, more succinct stories, get Mimi's version.

Dan's interests have lead the studio into a few different areas. Photoshop and digital backs long ago became integral tools, as have all manner of close-up lenses and attachments. More recently it's been 3D rendering programs, and he hopes one day to get into scanning electron microscopy. In 1991, Dan started the first Adobe Photoshop users group, which still meets at Adobe Systems in San Jose.

In addition to Mimi and Dan, the staff includes Raul Mayoral and Julia Lee. Raul and Julia both have many years of experience in photography, retouching, compositing and video editing.
