Business Portrait Headshot

SOUND ENGINEER

What does a sound engineer look like? This is Chuma Nwokike whose business it is to hear. This portrait was taken as part of a shoot for his business Ktizo Studios (great website https://lnkd.in/eYrQm3C) It is the engineer that can make or break a recording and he or she is a integral part of the process. Just like your photos are an integral part of your marketing.

BORG CUBE

RESISTANCE

No, it’s not the Borg ship from Star Trek warning us that resistance is futile.  It’s a cube of compacted cans, but the message resonates. Not that resisting oppression or other serious wrong is futile but internal resistance, that inner doubt that slows us down when we should be accelerating.

Telling Your Story

Consumer confidence continues to grow, which is great for everyone.  When consumers (which is all of us) are more confident things become more positive and better. This is especially true for businesses because it means that people will be more likely to spend money on what we offer.  However, this only works if people know what we offer, if they know our stories. How do we tell our stories?  We write, we take photos and videos and sometimes we sing.  […]

HEADSHOT v PORTRAIT

If you are in business, whether your own business or part of a larger enterprise, chances are you need a photo of yourself for many reasons.  What works best for you, a headshot or a business portrait (also called executive portrait). Headshots show what we look like.  Business portraits say who we are. Many people settle for a headshot.  It is fairly easy to do and if well done, make a great impression.  Headshots are done in a studio setting […]

SEPTEMBER NEW YEAR

For many of us September seems to be the real start of the new year.  We grew up going back to school, starting a new grade and a brand new experience.  New shoes, new notebooks, new classes and new classmates. After we are finished with school it still feels like the start of the new year.  Everything slows down in August.  People go on vacation and tune out.  Then Labor Day rolls around and we begin to buckle down again.

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.

ZERO SUM

Does it have to be zero sum? When you are part of a zero sum game then either you benefit or someone else benefits. Either I have the ball or you have the ball.  I win, you lose.  I don’t think that is how it needs to work.

Hunterdon County Agricultural & 4-H Fair 2018

Hunterdon County Agricultural & 4-H Fair 2018

The 4H used to be part of the larger Flemington Fair which was the big Hunterdon County event from 1848 until 1999 when it ceased. The historic fair grounds soon morphed into a Walmart. Not to be thwarted, several members of the Hunterdon County Board of Agriculture formed a committee to continue the local exhibition of 4-H and agricultural displays. (http://www.hunterdoncountyfair.com/general/history). I used to be more interested in the rides and the sideshow when my parents took me to the […]
