AS Imagined ... how it all began

AS Imagined - Artur Strecker

When I bought my first snapshot camera due to a study trip to Berlin in May 2005, quickly became aware that photography would be no temporary pleasure and made it as a hobby of mine.

My first snapshots were unfortunately rather poor, which is why I tried on the photo and graphics editing, to repair the problems caused by the camera defects.

In "vocational college for art and media" I received an insight into Adobe Photoshop, which led me to many new opportunities, as well as strengthened my interest in graphics editing.
Furthermore, I got an introduction to HTML and CSS, which I was able to connect well with my graphic knowledge and decided to take Web development in my repertoire and pursue it.

In 2008 I led the first projects for friends and family through and expanded my knowledge in web programming with JavaScript and daring first steps in PHP.

Over the years, I changed a few times my camera up to August 2013, were a single-lens reflex camera was added to my equipment and rounded out my work in the digital domain.

Early 2015 I founded the label "AS Imagined".
