Duane Storey is a Vancouver based photographer, researcher and web developer. Back in 2007, he was one of the first individuals in Vancouver to experiment with a process called High Dynamic Range photography. Since that time he has established himself as a competent event, wedding and concert photographer. In 2008, Duane was backstage at the Juno Awards in Calgary, Alberta, and photographed many musicians, including Leslie Feist. In 2009, Duane’s images of Leslie Feist and Sarah McLachlan were the top photos from the BC Festival 150 event in Victoria, BC, Canada, and were purchased by the event promoters for marketing purposes.
Duane received a bachelor of applied science in Engineering Physics (minor of Electrical Engineering) from the University of British Columbia, and completed his degree under the Chancellor’s Entrance Scholarship, making the Dean’s List several times. After a brief stint in Ottawa developing DWDM fiber optics components, Duane went back to university, ultimately obtaining a Master’s of Applied Science (M.A.Sc.) in Electrical and Computer engineering. He has published several research papers in the fields of weather forecasting and also in video compression & high definition scalability schemes.
Duane has been developing software for well over a decade now, releasing his first piece of software (a voting booth for bulletin board systems) back when he was 16. Since that time he has developed a vehicular collision re-creation package for an engineering firm in Vancouver, a control system for a robotic arm meant for Vancouver’s Science World, a portion of the original voice engine used in Yahoo! messenger, and the media components for a voice and video over IP library that was ultimately used by British Telecom, AT&T, and Cisco Systems.
