On this site you find some mod­ern stereopho­tos of var­i­ous mem­bers of the com­mu­ni­ty. I’m real­ly hap­py to have got­ten per­mis­sion to show them here. If pos­si­ble I’ve added a link to their own web­site or social media and I high­ly rec­om­mend to pay them a vis­it. Among them are also some stere­os I’ve tak­en myself. Unless oth­er­wise stat­ed all images are pro­vid­ed for par­al­lel view­ing.

If you want to know more about how to view these images, take a look at View­ing meth­ods. For any­one who feels more com­fort­able by using a view­er the LSC Lite OWL is a good choice for view­ing par­al­lel stere­os on screen.

Prob­a­bly you’ll need to adjust the image size for a bet­ter view­ing expe­ri­ence. The short­cuts crtl + [+] and crtl + [-] work for most browsers. Crtl + 0 brings every­thing back to it’s orig­i­nal size. If you have a Mac use cmd instead of ctrl in these short­cuts.

Shafts of light

I’m for­tu­nate to be an ear­ly ris­er and love being in my favourite local places just as the sun ris­es.  When you’re there and move, the shafts of light move when you do; when viewed in 3‑D they seem to form an almost sol­id part of the scene. These were all tak­en sequen­tial­ly.

I’ve lived in Hull, UK all my life and have been tak­ing stereo pho­tos since 2011, hav­ing been inspired to do so by Bri­an May’s first book on the sub­ject, ‘’A Vil­lage Lost and Found’’.  The main sub­jects of my stereo pho­tog­ra­phy are wildlife, nature and rock con­certs but since tak­ing up stereo pho­tog­ra­phy I have become more appre­cia­tive of archi­tec­ture and all its fine details that look so good when cap­tured in 3‑D.  Although I own a 3‑D cam­era, the Fuji W3, well over half my stereo pho­tos are tak­en sequen­tial­ly on either an iPhone7 or on one of my Canon cam­eras.

Catadioptric stereo photography (Mirror stereos)

If you think you can not take simul­ta­ne­ous stereo pho­tos with­out advanced equip­ment you should def­i­nite­ly take a clos­er look at this gallery! All of these were tak­en with a sin­gle shot — the only fur­ther equip­ment you need is a mir­ror. A mir­ror? That’s right! Read more about this tech­nique in the cor­re­spond­ing arti­cle about Mir­ror stere­os.

I am an avid stere­o­g­ra­ph­er and gen­er­al 3D exper­i­menter, mak­ing stereopho­tos, stere­ovideos, anaglyphs, extrac­tions, and con­ver­sions, draw­ing upon a vari­ety of sources, includ­ing TV and film, art­work, NASA data, prod­uct reviews, and more. I exper­i­ment with cata­diop­tric stere­os, asym­met­ric fram­ing, video pan­ning / zoom­ing of 3D stills, x‑rays and fog as depth map sources, and more. I am a proud mem­ber of and have pre­sent­ed and/or writ­ten for the New York Stereo­scop­ic Asso­ci­a­tion, the Nation­al Stereo­scop­ic Asso­ci­a­tion, and the Inter­na­tion­al Stereo­scop­ic Union.

Rigoletto stereo portraits

Here you see the cast mem­bers of The St Peters­burg Opera Com­pa­ny. All images were cre­at­ed back­stage dur­ing a per­for­mance. The jester is Rigo­let­to from the famous opera of the same name. The man with the ball is Count Mon­terone. I will con­tin­ue this series when we are allowed to return to the stage.

I am a fine art pho­tog­ra­ph­er and began work­ing in  3D in 2009.   In 2018  I became more seri­ous about 3‑D pho­tog­ra­phy and explored work­ing with dif­fer­ent cam­eras. I run a pho­tog­ra­phy club in St Peters­burg, Flori­da called the Pho­to­graph­ic Art Soci­ety to sup­port and inspire oth­ers in the art of pho­tog­ra­phy. Pho­tog­ra­phy has been my pas­sion since 1972 and I am a pro­fes­sion­al since 1981. Dur­ing the 2020 pan­dem­ic my focus has been on cre­at­ing macro stereo images from flow­ers in my yard using a Cele­stron USB micro­scope.

Scottish stereo sunrises

The Scot­tish wilder­ness can be a mag­i­cal place to be, espe­cial­ly dur­ing sun­rise in sum­mer. Out in nature so ear­ly in the day, alone or not, it is easy to be cap­ti­vat­ed by the beau­ty. Pho­tographs don’t always man­age to do jus­tice to those mag­i­cal moments, but with these stere­os it is almost pos­si­ble to feel like you’re stand­ing out there in fresh air, hear­ing a bird call­ing in the dis­tance, as you wit­ness the sun paint­ing the sky in bright colours.

Since 2017, stere­oscopy has been part of my life as a unique way to cap­ture mem­o­ries of all kinds. My pre­ferred sub­jects are my dogs, and close-ups of nature, though I’ve also exper­i­ment­ed with cityscapes since mov­ing to Vien­na part-time in 2019.
All my stere­os are sequen­tials, tak­en either with my phone, with my Sony A7 or with my Pana­son­ic DMC TZ 100. I sup­pose part of my style is the attempt to cap­ture scenes that are appeal­ing in mono as well as in stereo, teach­ing me to view the world from all kinds of unusu­al per­spec­tives.

Going beyond the scope

The stereo images of Gisela Anna Kölsch are play­ing games in two ways. First­ly, her favorite pho­to motifs are toy fig­ures, care­ful­ly and play­ful­ly staged. But she also plays with those who view of her stereo pho­tos by bend­ing the rules of stere­oscopy in allow­ing her scenes to lit­er­al­ly break through the stereo win­dow.

I nev­er knew of stereo pho­tog­ra­phy until 13 years ago, when I joined a pho­tog­ra­phy com­mu­ni­ty and saw those “strange” dou­ble pic­tures. At first I didn’t know what that was all about, but then I got hooked. Toys are my favourite sub­jects, espe­cial­ly dinosaurs and oth­er fig­ures. I’m not a per­fect pho­tog­ra­ph­er, my true pas­sion is edit­ing pho­tos and cre­at­ing spe­cial frames for my stere­os. I take all my stereo pairs sequen­tial­ly, using the so called ‘cha-cha’ method.
