Welcome to the blog of Michael Walker. Currently I am building my real estate photography business. Please view my work at Vesta Photography: Fine Real Estate Photography.

I also do:

  • (X)HTML/CSS: Custom web site design that includes artwork, logo design, and custom or stock photography
  • Editable web site pages
  • Content management system (CMS) using WordPress: installation, custom themes, and training
  • Web design and correlated print design from one vendor
  • Print Design for Photo-offset and Digital Printing
  • Variable Data Printing
  • Photography

I have been a graphic artist since 1984, the days of spray-glue, wax, cut’n'paste, running to the typesetter, and Exacto knives. I have produced advertising, catalogs, books, CD covers, magazines, business cards, fliers and brochures for both photo-offset and digital printing. My experience in photography allowed me to be able to provide a turn-key service to many customers illustrating magazines and advertising pieces. Having learned early on to program for and work with databases in a subscription fulfillment environment, I was able to move into variable data printing on digital presses.

I have added web design to my repertoire, specializing in WordPress installation with custom themes which allows the client to post articles and/or make changes to static pages themselves. Websites with specific client-editable areas are also possible.

Of course, (X)HTML and CSS are prerequisites to creating efficient, semantic websites. Search Engine Optimization (SEO), custom graphics, back-end programming, and shopping carts are also available. Contact me to discuss your project.
