This site Hertha.com has been running since April 9, 1997. It has undergone many changes since then, starting first as a webpage, then a blog and now this portal. The focus of the site has evolved to become a record of travels through lands, photography and may be life.
While travel photography represents much of my work, my portfolio includes other areas including architectural photography, landscapes, cityscapes, and conceptual. While I periodically focus study on specific areas of interest, having explored Pictorialism, Chinese Landscapes, among others, I don't consider myself tied to any one style or subject. I just enjoy whatever comes along.
As of December 1, 2009 in the United States the Federal Trade Commission requires that bloggers and other web authors clearly disclose “their connection, if any, with the advertisers; and also reveal the receipt of free products and or payments from the advertisers“.
I have none. I have no relationship with advertisers; I receive no free products; I receive no payments; I receive no donations. I pay for all costs associated with running this web site, the hertha.com domain, etc.
