Need a Professional Photographer?

A lot of folks commented on the portrait(s) that appeared on my blog recently. It was certainly a lot more professional looking than the previous snapshot. The backstory is this: Recently I had an article written about me for the OIT Alumni magazine, and they hired a professional photographer. I'm pretty :) but not pretty enough to have worked with pros before, so I didn't know what to expect. Fortunately, they hired Laszlo Bencze and he made me feel pretty much at ease. During the formal portrait shoot, Laszlo chatted me up about everything from blogging to digital vs. film photography. By the time we were done chatting - I hadn't realized - but we were done, and the pictures were taken. He also watched my class as I taught it later that evening and I forgot he was in the room, until I saw the pictures in the Alumni Magazine. Take a look at his photography sites at and (Interestingly, he's also a hell of a weight lifter.)

Great article! Very inspirational!
I'd noticed the pictures and wondered where you got them from. The wedding one was great but these do look really professional, and yet still fun.

That's the classic computer-geek-head-shot-with-hand-touching-face pose. Yes, very popular. :)

Wow, great article. Blogs are day-old stories. This article is a great sum-up of you, your philosophy, your professional life.

Thank you for your blog and your commitment.

P.S.: You must say "Je vous ai Googlé" q;-)

Just be glad you're not this guy:

Who is, in fact, a real Oracle consultant. With a pretty amusing (if scarily realistic) sense of humor..
