My wife, Mary Ann, and I, with our two miniature schnauzer dogs, Mouse and The Bi-Polar Bear, live near Denver, Colorado, close to the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

We have two sons, a granddaughter and a grandson who live here as well.

Michael Beech has been helping the 3D community since 2002 by writing and publishing educational manuals. A leader in developing and promoting innovations in digital 3D special effects, he has shared his findings and knowledge about such topics as:

  • Simplified stereo base calculation
  • Virtual (floating) windows
  • Forward windows
  • Frameless windows
  • Out-of-frame effects
  • Techniques to cure window violations
  • "Legal" and "soft" window violations
  • Fatal mistakes when photographing 3D
  • Ways to fix errors made when photographing 3D
  • 2D to 3D conversion
  • Slide-bar designs
  • Photoshop stereo alignment techniques

His books* have provided "how-to" information that could not be found elsewhere. Over the past 12 years, thousands of students of 3D have been helped by his tireless advice in multiple 3D stereo forums online. He has been published in Stereo World (NSA) magazine and Stereoscopy (ISU) magazine.

*Ebooks are available at Barnes & Noble (NOOK/Epub), Amazon (Kindle/Mobi), Apple (iBook/Epub), SmashWords (Epub), FlipKart (Epub) and EnfoPress (PDF). Printed books are available at Amazon.com and EnfoPress.com.
