LOCATION HEADSHOT STUDIO

Picture Day at Crown Plaza, Princeton

If you’ve ever been part of a corporate headshot shoot (either as a photographer or a “head”) then this probably looks familiar.  Instant studio in a vacant meeting room. When people come by for their headshot, a lot of them tell me they hate having their picture taken.  That’s entirely reasonable and understandable but it don’t bother me none.   It’s actually a lot more fun that they expect.  Plus I’m pretty efficient so it doesn’t hurt too long. Meetings and […]

LEADERSHIP HUNTERDON CLASS OF 2018

LEADERSHIP HUNTERDON 2018

Every year I enjoy photographing the newest class of the Leadership Hunterdon program. Leadership Hunterdon was launched back in 2011 with the vision to “transform people to become trustees of our communities, to become leadership resources and work for the betterment of Hunterdon County.” These people, already leaders, will spend the next nine months not only working in their full time jobs but also attending classes and workshops, visiting companies and organizations throughout the County and crafting a white paper […]

Equinox 2017

Happy Equinox. About equal day and night today as we continue to spiral and dance with the sun through the cosmos. (Maybe I’ll build a circle of stones to mark these events.  I wonder if anyone ever thought of doing that.)

Topped Off in Newark

Newark, NJ continues to grow and expand with the help of Dranoff Properties (dranoffproperties.com) which is building a 22 story luxury apartment complex just across the street from the NJ Performing Arts Center (NJPAC). Dranoff and its PR firm, Evergreen Partners (evergreenpr.com), brought me on to photograph its Topping Off Event held to celebrate reaching the height of 22 stories with the men and women who did the construction and the VIPs who helped make  it happen, including Newark Mayor Ras […]

Gourds

Is it a gourd or a feeling?

What’s for sale here? On the surface, it’s a funky looking squash.  Taken just a little deeper, it’s a decoration, a feeling of fall, a memory of Thanksgiving dinners, leaves blowing across the lawn, crisp cool air … A pretty good bargain for a few bits. What are you selling?

GOOGLE EARTH

Are you taking advantage of Google Earth?

Google Earth is a powerful program.  It provides a 3 dimensional view of the earth’s surface and is designed to allow users to embed their own data and share it with others on the Google Earth platform.  And it’s free.  You just need to know how to take advantage if it. I find it invaluable for enhancing my photography when there is a spatial component (i.e., when the location of the photos is important).  By incorporating my images in Google […]

HALL OF FAME

Sage Wisdom

Recognize wisdom when you hear it. During the past couple months, I did video interviews of the inductees into the Hunterdon County Chamber of Commerce Foundation Business Hall of Fame.  When you get to talk one-on-one with business leaders who have made a difference in their communities you certainly pick up a lot of wisdom. Nobody tried to give advice or promote themselves. Instead they just spoke from the heart about what they believe and what motivates them. It was […]
