Mimi Weinberg and Dan Clark met while studying photography at Rochester Institute of Technology, but didn’t become a couple and business partners until they arrived, separately, in California. If you’d like the long, drawn out version of the stody, talk to Dan. If you prefer shorter, more succinct stories, get Mimi’s version.
Dan’s geekiness has lead the studio into a few different areas. Photoshop and digital backs have become integral tools, as have all the manner of close-up lenses and attachments, video cameras and editing software. His current mad scientist experiments are in 3D rendering, and he hopes one day to get into scanning electron microscopy. In 1991, Dan started Adobe Systems in San Jose.
