My name is Ray Lemieux. I call this place TheSyberSite because many years back I adopted the nickname of 'sybersitizen' for doing things on the net. The site exists as a way to share some of my interests, which mainly revolve around art and science.

I've been a musican and composer since I was a kid. My main instrument is guitar, but I also dabble with keyboards, drums, and bass. In the early days I used a 4 track reel-to-reel tape deck (which I still have!) for recording my stuff. Now, of course, I use a computer-based digital recording studio.

I started doing photography in the late 1970's, and my first serious camera was a Minolta XD-5. In the intervening years I owned a variety of Minolta cameras, lenses, and accessories and made thousands of photographs with them. I got my first low resolution digital camera in 2000. In 2006 I bought the Konica Minolta 5D for my personal work, and have been so pleased with it that I have now retired my film equipment.

In the mid-1980's I got my first video camera and recorder, and began recording my band and family stuff. Back then we had to lug bulky and heavy stuff around to shoot a video, and anything other than rudimentary editing was next to impossible. Video is much easier now!

In recent years I've made my living in website administration and design of online training content for a large corporation; but I have worked with personal computers in one capacity or another since they first became available. The fundamental reason why I was drawn to them is that they are incredibly useful creative tools. My main computer-specific interest is 3D object modeling using an old but powerful program called Imagine.

I think that covers the basics. If you'd like to contact me about anything you see on my site, I'm here:
