PEOPLE ARE LOOKING

Or at least we hope they are.  Being visible is good, being noticed is even better. We all love to see, especially things that make us feel good.  We live in a visual world full of visual media.  It matters what you put out there for others to see.  The intent of marketing is to create a positive emotional response.  In other words, making people feel good. Show us your best foot.  Make us feel good. We’ll notice.

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. […]

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 […]

CRYING CLOWN

NOT AMUSED?

Have you ever had one of those days when you pitch idea after idea to your boss and he just stares at you?

BOYS JUST WANT TO HAVE FUN

Life accelerates as we grow.  The Hunterdon Harmonizers, who are launching yet another production with zest and zeal, asked if I could come an do some PR shots for them as they rehearse for their upcoming show.  It was fun being with them and being bowled over by their enthusiasm.  These are not the kind of guys who sit around at night vegging in front of their TVs but instead get out, get together and squeeze every moment out of life.

GINKO LEAVES

GINKO

Ginko leaves in the November light. Gotta love it. Ginkos have been around for quite awhile, about 270 million years or so (give or take a few days).  They are pretty unassuming until autumn when their leaves turn and they create carpets of yellow on the ground.   Some folks enjoy it as a tea or a supplement. I just like to see it.

JOHNNY HARITOS AT FREEDOM ART AND MUSIC

LOCAL ART

Johnny Haritos is a Frenchtown based artist, best know for his drawings of rock stars that are signed by the rockers.  Johnny with an eye for light, color and shape also produces pleasing and interesting photographs. I photographed him on B&W film at his recent show at Freedom Art & Music.  I really enjoyed seeing his work. Freedom Art & Music is like a lot of local galleries, offering a venue for local artists and serving as a draw for […]

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.

DOES YOUR WORK MAKE YOU HAPPY?

Sometimes. Yes? They say “work is work” and it is, of course, but if it brings us satisfaction then it’s more than work, it’s living life well. I’ve always loved my jobs, my work (except for that time in college I delivered telephone books…) and most of the time it was satisfying. That’s especially true at the end of a productive day. Boredom, fatigue and stress love to nudge their way in from time to time, but that’s normal. So […]
