Local Photographer, videographer and musician
Together with his wife Kathy McCarthy, E. J. Baeza moved from California to Oregon in June of 2006 in order to begin a new life and livelihood. Kathy became a jewelry designer and E. J. decided to pursue his creative passions for painting, photography, videography and music.
Kathy and E. J. decided to call their new art company Midlife Crisis Studios. In order to differentiate his fine art photography from other photographers‚Äô work, E. J. has developed a technique he calls ‚ÄúRenderization‚Äù. E. J. takes his conventional and digital photographic images and applies a unique combination of digital filters to create images that have a more ‚Äúrendered‚Äù look than conventional photography. E. J. has been exhibiting his conventional and ‚ÄúRenderized‚Äù images at Valley Art Gallery and in other gallery environments in the greater Portland area.
