MOST EXCITING, however, is his expertise in PHOTOGRAPHICALLY REPRODUCING LIGHTING CONDITIONS for a past time and place of an "occurrence" such as a MVA, Slip and Fall, etc., and demonstrate what was available to be seen by the parties, under then existing lighting conditions including very low or near dark conditions. This is done on a calculated time/date with the use of an extremely high resolution-80 MP, digital back with the highest available dynamic range-similar to the dynamic range of the human eye. He photographs directly into a properly color calibrated computer, at the actual location of the occurrence, with proprietary software to make the proper adjustments to match then existing light. The results are verified on site and compared to existing lighting right there at the scene, before the image is finalized.

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY (1970 - Present)

FINE ART PHOTOGRAPHY has been a long standing passion of mine.

See my work at www.dennishalkides.com, Gallery833.com, and www.facebook.com/pages/Gallery833-Fine-Art-in-Redding/160225810674500 Fine Art on Facebook.

My work has been used by design professionals, advertising agencies, interior decorators and individuals for several years, as well as private and commercial collections.

I use the highest resolution digital back mounted on my view camera, getting resolution and dynamic range exceeded by none. I specialize in very large prints (46x70+") for commercial placement or to fill large walls. I also make prints down to 24x36" or letter size, depending on customer needs. Regardless of size, you, the customer get an exceptional unparalleled print. I sell my prints framed or unframed ready for framing, and always mounted on acid neutral Gator-board® unless another sub-straight agreed upon.

My prints are all printed with archival inks and and art paper, then given 5 spray coats of a UV protectant coating and guaranteed not to fade for 200 years.

I have several locations in Redding where my really big prints are hanging and available for viewing in addition to my office at 833 Mistletoe Lane in Redding, CA.

ARCHITURE PHOTOGRAPHER (1970 - Present)

ARCHITECTURE PHOTOGRAPHY has always been an interest of mine and often I photograph fine buildings simply because they have intrinsic beauty and for the challenge. I have traveled all over the world making images of Landscapes and deliberately include images of nice ARCHITECTURE as well. As in art reproduction, it's critical to eliminate distortion, have true colors and eliminate unwanted glare and clutter where possible. For exteriors, the time of day and lighting can be critical, although I can make architectural images in either daylight or night time, interiors or exteriors.

ART REPRODUCTION is a relatively new endeavor developed during the time (2011-2012) I had Gallery833, a fine art gallery in Redding, California. My art reproductions are incomparable to anything else I've seen on the market. The prints I make are ***DISTORTION FREE***, they are absolutely ***TRUE COLORS***, there is ***NO LIGHT GLARE***, unlike most images you will see of art work. According to one of Redding's premier painters and sculptors, "it's hard to tell they are reproductions." (Lucious Upshaw). I have a special room at my office painted pure white, measured spectographically, to prevent any unwanted color tints in my reproductions. Satisfaction is guaranteed.

During the 35 years I was Senior Partner with the law firm of Halkides, Morgan & Kelley, I had both administrative responsibility for the firm as well as a full trial practice. I tried a lot of cases, got very good results and enjoyed representing my clients the very best I could. I representing both plaintiffs and defendants in serious personal injury cases to point of settlement or trial.

I am a member of the Million Dollar and Multimillion Dollar Advocates Forum, American Trial Lawyers Association, The California Trial Lawyers Association(now Consumers Attorneys), the International Defense Attorney's Association, The American Board of Trial Advocates (ABOTA) with highest rank of "Diplomate", and the Northern California Association of Defense Counsel.

For the last 35 years I have enjoyed the honor of being evaluated by Martin-Dale Hubbell (Independent rating firm using peer feedback) as "AV Pre-eminant" ,their highest ranking based on peer evaluations.

I maintain the AVVO (Independent rating firm using client and peer feedback) rating of 10/10 (their highest). This experience, knowing what it takes to try cases, will be a great benefit to my attorney clients in producing relevant and useful exhibits and other litigation support.
