Elton McAleer is a keen photographer, and began shooting with an Olympus OM2 at the age of 14. His passion for imaging can be traced back to the start of his career as a retoucher/scanner operator in the 90’s.
As Digital Production Manager for Getty Images in London he developed an extensive understanding of colour management, where he was responsible for developing and implementing many of the standards for colour viewing, communication and reproduction that are still in use today.
Since moving to New Zealand in 2005 he has provided calibration, workflow and colour management services to NZ’s leading ad agencies, printing and packaging companies. Elton is married with two young boys and lives in Ilam, Christchurch.
