About Us Today

Back then: Incorporated in 1983, TJD Enterprises, Inc. provided software, documentation, database design and training, and other services. The owner is Theodore J. (Ted) Duke author of numerous database publications, software utilities, and custom software applications.

Shown here with his favorite son, Chris, and favorite grandson, David, Mr. Duke had conducted database training classes for his clients and clients-to-be as well as (from time to time) under contract to Progress Software Corporation. He is the author of numerous publications about Progress databases and application programming.

Business areas have been extended to include photography and other books, primarily fiction. Accordingly, this site is divided into separate areas.

Today: Ted Duke (TJD, shown here with his son and grandson) has been a resident of Reston, Virginia since 1966 after moving to Virginia from St. Louis in 1960. A graduate of Washington University (St. Louis, Civil Engineering) he admits to taking pictures for several decades. An early afficianado of stereo (three-dimensional) photography his work has included:

- Architectural photography both with large format (4x5 view) cameras and other formats,

- And (ancient history now) while in high-school and college years, weddings and proms to support his photographic avocation.

Mr. Duke is a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. He recently had a traveling exhibition under the auspices of the Council for the Arts of Herndon (Virginia) and has a current ongoing exhibit in a commercial office, Herndon, Virginia.

Retiring from his longstanding database consulting business, he has now developed newer web sites links to which may be accessed by clicking the link at the left.
