KINDRED SPIRITS

ABOUT VIDEOS

“About Videos” on a your website, if done well, can be a great way for people to learn about you, your products or your services. I visit websites because I am curious, I want to know more. That is why I am there. (And I like watching more than I like reading, so a quick video is always welcome!) Of course it’s a balance to get it just right for your audience. If you are authentic and professional you’ll get […]

LEVERAGING GOOGLE MAP AND GOOGLE EARTH

Locations matter when having events. People need to know where you are. Brokaw Photography Studio and five art galleries are having group shows in Frenchtown this weekend.  We’ve all posted our events on Facebook but when we do that we simply create six separate silos of information.  To bring us all together and to inform visitors of our locations I thought it would be great to create a live Google Maps and to locate all the galleries on Google Earth. […]

FRANK by BROKAW PHOTOGRAPHY

THE 65-10 RULE

Chances are you looked at Frank’s bright blue eyes before you read any text (yes, they are real!). I know I look at pictures before I read and most of us do.  That is why visual content is so important.  Not only does it get our attention but we remember it better. Dr. John Medina, a developmental molecular biologist, research consultant and  affiliate Professor of Bioengineering at the University of Washington School of Medicine  has been study how the brain works […]

EDDY BUILDING STORE

VISION

I admire people with vision.    Over just a few days last week, Patricia Walsh Collins and Susan Joy Rosetty transformed an empty storefront into a thriving store called the “Art of Sprit Local.”  I had just photographed the space to help market it, so  am happy to see it rented. When I saw how quickly and creatively, Susan and Patricia decorated the store and arranged all the merchandise I was thoroughly impressed.  I asked Patricia how they were able […]

HUNTERDON CHAMBER AWARDS 2107

The Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce celebrated business leaders in the county at its annual awards breakfast.  Hearing about these businesses and individuals is always inspiring.  These businesses are making a difference in the lives of many people from their employees to the people they serve and to the Hunterdon County community.  It is always a pleasure to attend these events and photograph the recipients. Governmental Award winner Clinton Township Mayor John Higgins Entrepreneur of the Year Award winner Tom […]

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 […]
