Great Photographic Resource

image In case you hadn?t seen it yet, Google is now hosting the Life magazine photo archive. You can search on the cutlines of images, the locations of the photographs, the subject of the photo and best of all to those doing photographic research, the photographer?s name! 

The archive boasts photos taken from the 1850s to today. Interestingly, Googles blurb about the archive states that you can

?Search millions of photographs from the LIFE photo archive, stretching from the 1750s to today.?

Here are some searches that I recently that turned up images by many of my photographic heroes:

I'm a technologist at heart, assisting companies best utilize the Internet to market themselves and sell their products and services online. This includes organizations as large as Google and as small as one or two individuals.
At Over The Top and Exhibit A Communications, I've programmed solutions for Google as well as at least one other company that was later acquired by Google.

I've been CTO of an Internet SaaS company and spent my time pretty evenly between guiding the future technical strategy of the company, architecting software solutions for my dev teams, designing and running a data center to service our clients world-wide as well as being a technical evangalist/sales engineer to our media clients large and small.

I've also been Chief Photographer of the Daily Sun/Post newspaper back when it was a 5-day a week daily newspaper.

I also spent a great many years as a beach lifeguardfor the City of San Clemente as well as Jr. Lifeguard instructor and then as it's program coordinator.
