How Do You Make A Great First Impression?

Both actors and models alike need a great headshot. It is the first thing any casting director will see from the agency. It is the piece of you that is left as a reminder after an interview or audition. It is your foot in the door. And it needs to be strong. Your headshot image should reflect the mental image you want to leave. Find a great photographer, and not necessarily the cheapest. This also doesn’t mean that a $5,000 photo shoot for one image is the best quality. Be reasonable, and do your homework. Make the best first impression you can -you only get one. _MG_7326

Will You Marry Me?

We had the amazing opportunity to be a part of a surprise proposal —

Our eager groom-to-be got down on one knee and asked the love of his life for her hand in marriage, while overlooking  a lit up skyline of New York City from the hills of Montclair, NJ.

We, your trusted photographers, hid in the bushes.

Our best wishes for our happy newly engaged couple!  Congrats!

PB&J

Alright everyone… it’s time to get real.  Peanut Butter and Jam sandies (otherwise known as PB&J) are maybe one of the worlds better inventions.  From its beginning, it was a match made in Heaven.    This magical union supposedly originated in the USA and according to Wikipedia, “A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 2,500 of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.”  I believe I am one of those stats they are talking about.

You can make a PB&J without using real peanut butter – this we have learned from all of our allergy friends out there — cashew butter, almond butter or even no-nut peabutter – can still do the trick.

Now, we happened to stumble on the greatest Buzzfeed post — The most delicious pull we got from their take on PB&J’s came in the form of French Toast —- YUMMMMM!

Once again… YUM.  

If you’ll all excuse me… I’m going to the kitchen.

Graduation

As the school season comes to an end, we happily start cleaning out our lockers, finishing up those doodles on our desks and count down the days until Mr. SoandSo from chemistry gives us back our confiscated items. 

For those of you who have at least another year until graduation… hang in there!  You can do it!  

Here are some helpful hints to get you through the rest of your school years.. 

1. Study – for real. Sometimes learning can actually be fun!

2. Eat more veggies!  The greener, the better.

3. De-clutter.  It’ll help your concentration.

4. SLEEP.  Try it.  And we don’t mean sleeping through the morning… we mean an actual good nights rest.

For those of you putting on that cap and gown.. we would like to wish you well!  CONGRATS!  Happy Graduation!  Good Luck!

Happy Birthday Whoopee!

HAPPY 13TH BIRTHDAY WHOOPEE!

Today, we celebrate our Pyrenean Sheppard’s 13th Birthday!  MACH “Whoopee” was among the trailblazing Pyr Sheps who made their mark in the agility world. Retired from the ring for the past four years, she lives an active life of modeling, hiking and running our photography business.

whoop052313_106

We happily celebrate this long life after finding an aggressive cancer tumor on her hind foot.

Read below to see some of our updates on her progress. 

April 19, 2013:  Radiation journey begins… Waiting for my terrific little pyr shep to begin her healing journey for a sarcoma that has all but covered her hind foot. Today is the fitting for an demobilizer so the radiation next week can be precise. Trying to hold my emotions in check …. Not easy as everyone of you knows what it’s like to fight for your dog’s life.

April 29, 2013: Whoopee Radiation Report – thanks to everyone for support and healing prayers – this new experience is so far a non event.

We went to the Vet MRI & Radiotherapy Center of NJ, located in Clifton, where she showed no fear each of the four consecutive days we went last week. The staff were so caring and attentive to Whoopee that she actually pulled me into the front door each day – how about that? After the initial CAT Scan, they made a mold of her body with a cover that would insure the exact position each of the three days of radiation.

She went through the full anesthesia with no problem and seems very happy. Now it’s a waiting game, as it takes several months to see the effects – good and bad – of the radiation on her foot and tumor. I did the right thing with this treatment and hope that it adds a few more happy years to her life expectancy. I highly recommend this center – which is one of only three in the country that offer a three day radiation treatment for tumors. Hope none of you ever need it for your four legged children.

May 7, 2013: The radiation worked!!!!!Whoopee’s horrible tumor on her hind foot is already shrinking and today, oncologist Dr. Renee Alsarraf, saw her and was thrilled to see so much change in just two weeks of the concentrated radiation treatment. Looks like we’re on the road to recovery!!!!!! Thank you Dr. Alsarraf and all you wonderful friends who sent healing prayers and good energy to help my wonderful pyr shep fight cancer and hopefully, beat it.

May 23, 2013Whoopee celebrates this day with a big smile – she feels great – her appetite is back and she even jumped over some low fences in the backyard – thanks to state of the art radiation cancer treatment available and great vets – we look forward to the next milestone with her cancer in remission!

Zoom

 

 

Zooming and  cropping are little edits that  can change the entire composition of your images.

When we zoom, we are able to see details in our images that we may not have noticed to the naked eye.  We see the grains, the pores, the dust.  We see the reflections, the shine and the wrinkles.  It is always very important to look at your entire image at 100% to make sure that you have captured your image in the best possible way that you intended — that 33.7% zoom is simply not good enough and more often than not, quite deceiving.

By cropping, we are able to make our images much stronger.  We get rid of the extras, the excess and the distractions. We allow the audience to see the details that are the most important.  Here, you see a photo of some cute kittens on a bed.  Unless the cats got in the way of your pillow shot… start cropping and keep only the cats.  The pillows will always be pillows, but the eyes and expressions of those kittens will change faster than you can say ‘meow’.

Happy Zooming!  Happy Cropping!

Lights. Camera. Action!

It’s definitely been a while since our last post!  …

We seemed to have missed the entire end of April!  

We hope it’s not too late for a pinch and punch for the First of the Month!

May the Fourth Be With You!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

 Holy Batman!  We’ve been busy!!!!!

Well, don’t you worry… we’re back!   We’ve just recently finished up a great TV commercial — we had the wonderful opportunity of working with some great Directors, Stylists and Videographers.  We’ll post the spot once it airs, but for now… we can show you a little behind the scenes action!

Go ahead… smell ’em!

It is definitely the beginning of a wonderfully warm and sunny spring season!  We have changed the clocks, cleaned our homes and started the insane task of switching out our winter clothes for summer ones in the closet.   Yes, the weather has has a mind of its own… it snowed an incredible foot and a half just the other day, yet managed to melt and disappear by the time we all finished shoveling the driveway!  It’s time, dear Mother Nature.  We’re ready.  Bring on the sun! Bust out the sandals!  Let’s get outside and play!
