HUNTERDON FOUNDATION BOARD OF DIRECTORS

GAMING FOR ENTREPRENEURS

The Board of Directors for the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce Foundation gathered at the Large House in Flemington recently to “play.” They played “Outta This World,” a board game designed to awaken creativity and innovation, which was created by the Hudicka family based in Hunterdon County.  It was an interesting evening photographing and video recording some of the county’s business leaders engaged and enjoying a free flow of energy.   “Outta This World! is our patent pending brainstorm game, […]

THE CHEF

OWN IT

While shooting some food photos for a local restaurant I was asked if I could get a headshot of the chef. (Of course I could!) From the moment I stepped into the kitchen I could tell who was in charge of it. She owned it. No arrogance, no belligerence, just warm, friendly, supreme confidence.

ROBERT DEBARTH TYPEWRITER REPAIR

TYPEWRITER MAN

Robert DeBarth has been repairing and rebuilding typewriters for over 70 years.  Now you might think that business would be slow, but Robert has plenty of work.  His skills are actually in high demand.  People still love typewriters. If you’ve ever tried to fix one you know that they are like watches with hundreds of integrated parts.  It takes a specialist and there are not too many typewriter factory repair centers anymore (probably none), so Robert is at a premium. […]

TODD STONE BY BROKAW PHOTOGRAPHY

DO YOU JOURNAL?

I photographed artist, Todd Stone as part of a photo project about the Artists of the Gallows Run.  We talked about journals. Todd is a well known New York artist, www.toddstone.com.  Todd witnessed, first hand, the destruction of the Twin Towers and rendered it in paintings.  Over the past 16 years he has been witnessing and painting the resurrection. Todd journals.  It settles his mind and evokes new thoughts and ideas. Journalling is right up there with mindful meditation as a […]

FRENCHTOWN BUSINESSES ON GOOGLE EARTH

LEVERAGING GOOGLE EARTH

Marketing is all about engaging the viewer.  The vast majority of what we encounter on line is simply viewed, read or heard. We read posts, look at photos, watch videos and listen to recordings. But there are always applications emerging that can engage us by allowing us to interact with what we see.  We do more than just look or listen, we take action by zooming and panning and clicking.  This engages our motor functions and stimulates our brains. One […]

VINCE PAPALE - PASSION

PASSION

Vince Papale “walked on” to the Philadelphia Eagles in the 1970s and made history.  An unknown 30 year old guy from the neighborhood who never played football decided to try out and became an NFL legend.  Disney even made a movie about him called Invincible. Vince’s football days are behind him and now he travels the country giving talks and motivating everyone from corporate executives to high school athletes. Vince’s story is impressive, for sure, but as I photographed him during […]

BROKAW PHOTOGRAPHY-FOOD TRUCK EVENT_5

FOOD TRUCK FUN

Like many companies, Promius Pharma annually convenes its people from around the country to bring them together as a team and enhance their focus on the company mission.  And of course the first night is a time for settling in and getting off to a good start with a social event.  This year Promius met at the Crown Plaza in Princeton and decided it would be fun to have food trucks cater the party. I’ve photographed a lot of corporate […]

COLD BREW

COLD BREW

Really cold brew at BioStorage, part of a facility at Rutgers University where they keep stuff on ice (not beer, though). I’ve photographed a number of sites specializing in cryogenic storage and it’s pretty amazing to see how technology enables us to seriously cool things down and essentially stop the aging process. Funny, though, when it gets really cold, I certainly don’t feel my aging process slowing down. www.BrokawPhotography.com

TREATMENT PLANT - BILL BROKAW

INDUSTRIAL GRAPHICS

I don’t often think of the visual graphic appeal of sewage treatment plants. Actually, I don’t really think of sewage treatment very often, but recently, when on assignment photographing this facility I couldn’t help but notice its visual elegance. Everything at a treatment plant is designed for a purpose and within this design is a kind of graphic beauty. I always enjoy photographing engineered structures. Especially when the light is awesome.  Ideally, it works as well as it looks. www.BrokawPhotography.com

GEOTAGGING ONLINE

Geotagging is fairly easy and is required in order to embed a photo on Google Earth. Geotagging is the process of adding latitude/longitude coordinates to the metadata of a photo. Some cameras will geotag automatically when you take a photo. However, this is the location of the camera when the photo was taken, not the the location being photographed. For our project, FRENCHTOWN 150, we are adding custom coordinates to our digital files. This can be done a number of […]
