About the Author

Wayne J. Cosshall has been a photographer since he turned 14 and was given his first SLR by his parents to take pictures through his telescopes. Since then his photography has come more down to earth, though his wife claims he never has. While growing in his photographic practice, Wayne shaped an academic career in Computer Science, specialising in computer graphics and imaging. After close on 20 years Wayne left the university system for awhile and started writing full time. Later Wayne came back to teaching through workshops, teaching and running the photography department at a number of private universities, consulting with others on digital photography course design and consulting with other education providers. Through this period Wayne's photography broadened and he brought his professional computer skills across into his imaging, working first with his own software to do image manipulation and later becoming expert with software like Photoshop and Painter, as well as many 3D graphics programs. Wayne has exhibited his photography and digital art pieces both within Australia and internationally. For many years he co-directed the International Digital Art Awards with his friend and IDAA founder Steve Danzig. Wayne has been involved in organising several photography conferences, has curated a number of photography and digital art exhibitions and is active with a local photography biennale.

More About the Author

Wayne J. Cosshall is the publisher of Digital ImageMaker International and is involved in a number of other Internet publishing ventures.

Wayne has been a teacher, educator and communicator all his adult life. He started his university teaching career whilst still an undergraduate student himself. He was a Senior Lecturer in Computer Science at Swinburne University and Head of the Computer Graphics Research Group for some 17 years there, specializing in parallel computer graphics rendering, computer architectures for graphics and mathematical and algorithmic art. He created his first computer graphics image in 1979, built his first computer in 1980 and constructed his first digital camera in 1986.

Wayne has been a photographer for over 35 years and after leaving his university career he concentrated on exhibiting his photography and digital art, as well as writing about it.

As a writer he has written for all the major Australian photography and design magazines, along with a fair number of the US ones. He was technical editor of Desktop magazine and the Editor of Print21 magazine, which covered the printing industry and, before that, editor of Digital Photography & Design magazine.

He have exhibited his photography and digital art (predominantly mathematical and fractal imagery, up until quite recently) in group and solo shows within Australia, including invitational survey shows, and internationally. He was Assistant Director of the prestigious International Digital Art Awards for 5 years and has curated several major exhibitions.

His digital artwork is currently going through a period of major change and development. His digital artwork draws inspiration from many interests. For his whole life he has had deep interests in, and made active studies of, philosophy, the esoteric, ancient history, esp. Egyptian, Greek, Roman and Celtic, comparative religions, mathematics, astronomy, quantum physics, paleontology, the origins of man, psychology, art and modern history, esp. European and Asian.

Wayne works in series. His two great imaging passions are infrared photography and digital collage. A number of recent infrared series includes "Better to be a wolf than a sheep", "Mullock heaps of central Victoria", "Infrared panoramas" and "The rural landscape". He is working on a substantial collage series called "Road to Elysium" that delves into the esoteric and another series interpreting the Kabbalah through imagery.

Wayne's Photography Wisdom is now out in print, ebook and app for iPad form. A series of other books is in the works.
