TAKING AIM

Taking Aim

In the beginning when we first begin learning to shoot straight, there were those in the background keeping a watchful eye and making sure we weren’t aiming at our foot. Ideally, mentoring and guiding never really end in the business world, whether we are the eager student or the wise observer in the background.

OMG

“OMG” – Three little letters that mean a lot.  

“OMG. So happy thanks so much.”  When you finish a job and read these words, you can feel satisfied you’ve served your client well.  Having recently received such an email, I’m happy as a peach and also well aware one should never rest on one’s laurels. Satisfying a client is more than the final product.  It is the whole process that leads you there, from the first phone call to the deliverable and everything in between.  It is an ongoing […]

NIGHT SKY

Ready for the Eclipse?

Here comes the moon.  Standing in front of the sun and casting us into darkness in the middle of the day. OK, so maybe it won’t get this dark, but it will be the biggest shortest show of the year.

SHARED VISION

Shared Vision

I talk to a lot of business people and I know how much everyone cares about the services and products they provide.  This is their vision.  Their clients and customers also have a vision.  They want products and services that satisfy them.  When we share our visions with other people’s visions, that’s when magic happens. We all have visions for ourselves and for our businesses.  Visions are what we want to see happen.  We want to grow, we want to […]

SHOWROOM

SHOWROOM

Is it “showroom,”  “show room,” or “show showroom?” In this case I think I’ll settle on “show showroom.”  Photography of interiors is all about showing rooms.  In this case, it’s a showroom for a contractor.  Showrooms always make for great photos as they are designed to be seen.  Of course, interior photos are not by any means limited to showrooms.  Good photos are excellent anytime you want to express what it feels like to be in a space.  It may […]

RAINBOW CATERPILLAR

Innovating

You never know what you will see when on assignment.  At first I thought I discovered a new species, a rainbow caterpillar.  After consulting numerous taxonomic books  realized that what I had actually found  was Girlscoutis innovatum (common name, “clever Girl Scouts”) What do you do when you get rained on?  Innovate!

TEAM PHOTO

Value Your Team

A company is a team of people working together.  The question is, “What are they working for?” Every business owner would love knowing his or her team is working for the growth and enhancement of the company.  Everyone has a position and a strategic role to play, whether it’s the bat boy or the captain. Sometimes owners get caught up in the demands of running the business and aren’t able to express their gratitude as much as they would like. […]

Focus

Focus

Each August the pilgrims pass through Frenchtown on their way to the American Czestochowa in Doylestown, PA.  They start in Great Meadows, make their way across NJ and into PA.  They cross the Delaware via the Frenchtown/Uhlerstown bridge, a narrow, steel truss bridge maintained by the Delaware River Joint Toll Bridge Commission (DRJTBC).   The DRJTBC loves images of its bridges being used and often give me the heads up when events like this are happening so I can get some […]

Zip Lining

Going to Camp

For some reason it always seem like I’m climbing ladders (or trees or fences or buildings) to get a little higher perspective on a shot.  This was the perfect angle to get some zip-line photos for the Girl Scouts Heart of New Jersey (GSHNJ) at Camp DeWitt.  We didn’t have any trouble getting volunteers for this activity, one the kids’ favorites. Shooting the camp activities for GSHNJ was fun and almost made me wish I was at camp myself.  There […]
