CHEFS

When I search restaurants online I’m presented with an abundance of food photos, some good, some not so great.  Food photography is an art. Less frequently I get to see good ambiance photos and rarely do we get to see the people who pull it all together in the kitchen, the chefs. For restaurant week 2018, Flemington Community Partnership brought me on to photograph some of it’s local chefs. Matt at Matt’s Red Rooster, Jonas at 55 Main and  Leandro […]

Summer on the Delaware

Every year I invite photographers to be part of the Summer on the Delaware photo project. The intent is t create images that depict people and the river whether it is playing on it or just being near it. Fourteen photographers took part this year generating photos that share their vision of summertime on the Delaware River. One photo per photographer is being exhibited Saturday Sept 1 and continuing through September 2nd to coincide with Frenchtown’s exuberant Riverfest Celebrations.

SELFIE 1982

  OK, yeah, so it was 1982 in the photo office of the Fort Pierce News Tribune, in between assignments. I guess I thought I could grow a beard (nice try). It’s funny what you may come across when digging through archives.  Like most people, I often wonder what will become of all the digital photos I’ve been compiling for the past 15-16 years.

USEFUL & INTERESTING SITES

Every month my Meetup Group, Frenchtown Photography Meetup, gets together in the studio to share images, insights and take part in mini-workshops.  We also engage in projects to push the envelop and see what we can accomplish collectively. Most recently we met to screw around with Photoshop and create somewhat strange, humorous images using layering.  As part of our discussions members often mention websites about photography they enjoy.  Here are three goods one we recently talked about. “You Suck at […]

VIDEOS FOR WEBSITES

Videos for websites and social media that are well-made and engaging are excellent marketing tools. They can be a series of action photos, a photo compilation or something unique, like a morph.  The intent is not necessarily to inform at length but to spark interest.  When potential clients are interested in you, they will investigate and that’s when they will want to learn the details of who you are and what you offer.

IS IT ME OR IS IT YOU?

Which perspective is better. yours or mine? When I produce content about my business, should I be providing information I want to put out there or should I be putting out information you want to see? Unless I’m an artist or a writer making a statement, I’d have to say your perspective trumps mine.  If you don’t want to see what I publish about myself then there is really no point in putting it out there. Less is best.  Most […]

TOO MUCH INFORMATION

There are two sides to a story, an explanation or a sales pitch, you and the listener. We have much to share and talk about.  We have tons of details about our product, our plan or our service but what does the listener want to hear?
