Schuyler Meyer

Hello friends and onlookers,

Hmmm, where to start?
My name is Schuyler Meyer — [ pronounced like "Sky—ler My—er" ].

As for my dreams and aspirations, my ultimate goal is to create immersive experiences. Whether they be happy and exciting for people to relive or escape to, more sensitive and emotional for people to better understand the struggles of others or to learn about history past, or simply awe-inspiring and epic. The tools used could be any number of things, such as virtual or augmented reality, in the form of a video game or animation, or a photograph.

I, myself, am always fascinated and inspired by those that are able to create or capture the emotions of their subject and environment, in any multitude of forms – game, movie, animation, book, photograph, etc. Whether I have reached a level of consistency yet or not is one thing, but I would describe my artistic style as taking roots in a mix of both romanticism and photojournalism. While I don't have a background in photojournalism per se, I am deeply inspired by many photojournalists and their ability to capture their subject. Similarly, I think my work also takes inspiration from the work of romantic painters of old (Albert Bierstadt, in particular, whose art was often criticized for exaggeration). And likewise, in my work, I'm not adding, nor taking away, what's not there, I'm just *subtly* shaping the view – making the mountains a little taller, the lighting a little more dramatic, etc. I'm trying to invoke an emotion.

In regard to the more tangible and technical stuff, I recently graduated from Clarkson University in Potsdam, NY with a bachelor's degree in software engineering and a second bachelor's degree in digital arts and sciences. While there, I worked on some really cool projects – both for research and class as well as for fun. As one of the student photographers for the school (both marketing and athletic departments), I also did a lot with photography. I probably missed out on one or more social events because I was always editing photos. And I even got to TA a photography class as well. (To see the gritty details, see below. To see more of my photography, check out my photography site, here.)

In addition to photography and other projects, I was also an officer (or E–Board as we called it) for four different student run clubs – Baseball Club (Historian, Photographer, Webmaster, Player); Video Game Club [CUGI – Clarkson University Gamers Initiative] (Treasurer, Head and Founder of the Game Creation Committee); Photo Club (Secretary); and Anime Club (Secretary) – as well as the team photographer for the Men's and Women's Club Hockey teams.

Before we move on, a note about this website – it is a personal one. A personal project of a personal website. I have created and written everything on here from scratch, from the photos, logos, and backgrounds to all the underlying HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. While I do have a degree in software, I had never taken any classes in HTML before – I self-taught myself HMTL / CSS / JavaScript through the many tutorials on the internet for this website project. With that being said, as you scroll down, you may notice my software senior design project was created using HTML (among other things) – while it is true that that project was my first experience with HMTL, there was no formal "teaching", my team was learning and piecemealing as we went along. That project was more of a taste, where this personal website project is more of the full course.
