Granite Bay Software is a small company that produces time-lapse software for digital cameras. The company is owned and operated by Mike Posehn, a former engineer and personal computer software pioneer. Started in January 1985, Granite Bay Software is a privately held business.
Posehn earned a BS (Mechanical Engineering), MS (EECS), and PhD (Dynamic Systems and Automatic Control) from UC Berkeley and began a career as an engineer at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory shortly thereafter, but quickly switched to computer software in the late '70s. Posehn was one of the early personal computer software pioneers and developed many products as an independent author. After creating the Desert Strike series of video games (published by Electronic Arts) and earlier as CEO of Organic Software (creators of VisiSchedule and Milestone), Posehn retired from the software business to pursue his interest in photography and film.
Posehn became fascinated with the nature of time and by looking at the world on different time scales. This fascination inspired the desire to capture what he saw with his digital still camera and assemble the images into time-lapse films and clips, which eventually led to the creation new and innovative software products.
