MyLoupe Web Division


BrianBrian Heston is the founder and owner of MyLoupe Web Division. Brian began his career in the creative field in 1983 as a photographer, shooting for advertising, corporate brochures, magazines, and catalogs. In 1994 the World Wide Web was a new frontier that he was introduced to while learning computer graphics at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. By January 1995 Brian had created and launched his first website and became part of a small group of professional photographers that pioneered using the internet to promote their photography. 1995 was also when the dot com boom started to heat up and there were exciting opportunities for anyone with a knowledge of HTML, a good sense of design, and Photoshop skills. By November 1995 Brian had accepted an offer to join a Chicago Web Development firm where he eventually became Senior Web Designer and Creative Director. In 2003 Brian began working with the very talented PHP programmer and database specialist Arijit Chaudhuri, and together, developed MyLoupe Stock Images. This online photo licensing agency represented over 900 photographers worldwide and over 450,000 images before being aquired by Universal Images Group in 2012. Primarily self taught in HTML, XHTML, CSS, and Javascript Brian also has a Certificate in Standards Based Web Design from DePaul University.

"One of the things I love about working on websites is that the technology continues to evolve so there are always new things to be learned, it never gets stale."

ArijitArijit Chaudhuri has a degree an electronics engineering from Jadavpur University, Calcutta and an MBA (Systems & Finance) from The Indian Institute of Management (IIM), Calcutta.
