Newsletter - Oct. 21, 2010

by JamesNYCOctober 21. 2010 14:11
Hello Photographers, Photo Assistants & Digital Techs.

As our industry continues to pick itself up after a hideous 24 months of little to no work thanks to a crap economy; I too am now inundated with photo production work as well as our existing projects for the web sites.
Most notably is the impending completion of our new and completely overhauled database system.

This new Database will be expanded to allow listings for every member of the commercial photo industry as well as offer some features similar to those found on social networking sites, features currently not offered anywhere else that I am aware of; and 1 or 2 features that other industry related sites currently charge you for.

I currently have a dozen people testing it and abusing it thoroughly and expect to launch it in the next 10 days.

Next week is the PhotoPlus Expo at the Jacob Javitz center here in NYC. It's the one time every year I get to see some of my friends now spread out across the country and many of you that I have met over the years either through workshops or through the site or our networking events. So hopefully we'll have a chance to meet again.

I would also like to welcome or new sponsor Leica Camera.
In the coming weeks and months we will be presenting a number of events that will be hosted in part by Leica and maybe even a few surprises.

by JamesNYCSeptember 17. 2010 16:05
Did 3 days of editorial beauty out of state, and today did lighting for a video shoot here in NYC for Sharper Image.
We shot with the Canon 7D and the Canon 5DMKII.
 
Nothing better than being hired for good jobs were the photographer lets you do what he hired you for.
