About Dilip

Our lead photographer and owner, Dilip Barman, has been involved with photography since elementary school, when he began darkroom and black and white exploration with a Minolta 35mm camera. He is an award-winning photographer who has had his portrait, event, and nature photography published in books, magazines, and featured in museums. Please visit Dilip's photography at

Dilip teaches popular digital photography courses for all ages, as well as presents special workshops to elementary and high school students. He has a long history of working in not just the arts but also technical computer science. He researched "hypertext" starting back before the web existed; he met Tim Berners-Lee when they were both presenting their work in December 1991 - Tim was showing off his web of a handful of sites that he began on August 6 of that year, the very beginning of the World Wide Web. By working with Dilip, you will have a lead photographer experienced with both the arts and sciences involved with creating vibrant memories for you that will last lifetimes. You can visit Dilip on the web at his homepage that he has maintained since 1994,
