Introduction

He has twenty years experience in the newspaper industry, initially as a production artist, then as a computer technician supporting content producers. This experience gives him a strong understanding of graphic production for print and web.

Photography has long been a passion of Bert's, and he was honored to have a photo included in the PDF version of the 2011 Plus One Collection. He specializes in cell and smart phone photography.
