Jan Kaluza photography & design

I am a photographer and designer based in Hamilton, New Zealand.

There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer. - Ansel Adams

I've been involved with Unix and later Linux since 1990. I've been taking photos for at least 15 years longer than that. In the film days I had Pentax kit, was an early adopter of digital with a Sony Mavica - yes the one with a 3.5" diskette and horrid 640x480 pixel JPG files. I moved to Canon, but also use Panasonic for a daily carry. The EOS equipment gets used for more purposeful work, though many of my favourites are taken on the seemingly lesser cameras. I shoot landscapes, macro and almost anything. I used to do weddings (too stressful as I get older) and still make portraits or passport shots. I design websites and graphics, logos, book covers. I try to re-use computers, especially with Linux where I recommend Mint (derived from Debian and Ubuntu) and also run Manjaro and Reborn (of the Arch Linux family) for myself. With my IT background in systems and databases, I have worked in Pascal, C, Fortran, SQL, Informix 4GL, Oracle, mySQL, Perl and Python - to mention a few. Linux Mint have featured some of my images as wallpapers.

I wish people would swap social media for social values.
