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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
