About this Site
This is nothing more then a casual photoblog by Stephen DesRoches and a place for experimental work. I live on a small island in Atlantic Canada where I have worked with the design team of silverorange for the past 11 years.
Working with mail order catalog companies, editing photography can be a daily routine, but as an illustrator, I also sometimes get a small bit of credit for the Firefox brand and more recently, the TinEye Robot. Usability and artist by day with a creative diversion of photography in the early mornings and evenings.
I started this site in 2001 and it remains all for fun.

Why Focused on Light?
Without focus, the world would be a blur and without light, there would be nothing to focus on. Vistek defines focus as the position in which rays of light from a lens converge to form a sharp image. But more importantly, it was one of a very few available domains after months of looking.
