  • A customer comment from the University of La Verne: "Thank you so very much - we are very pleased and can not thank you enough for your attention to the matter and going beyond what we were expecting. It is apparent that you pride in your business and really care for your customers and their satisfaction - something you don't always see today. Thank you again." Sincerely, Debbie M.
  • Some time has passed since I researched and wrote about the coming new wave in photography, the dominance of cell phone cameras, specifically the new generation of SmartPhones. (SmartPhones Morphing into The New Point & Shoot Camera for Consumers, August 3, 2011, published on this site, and published in Professional Photographers of California's September magazine.) As an exclamation mark to my article, I heard Paul Simon's song, 'Kodachrome' the other day and began to think about how art... [read more]
  • A short thank you note from a recent University of La Verne graduate who  just received her pictures: "The portraits are very, very, very nice, you did a wonderful job and I'm really very happy with them. Roberta L."

This is a continuing photographic look at Generation Y and the directio... [read more]
  • What is the correct number of senior pictures to purchase for your home today? Parents purchasing professional portraits from a studio are very likely to purchase for their own home use, perhaps an 8 x 10 portrait for a 'love wall' or an 11 x 14 (or maybe a 16 x 20) for wall display. But what they forget is the future. Young adults will someday marry and have a spouse. From this come children and the need for copies of portraits purchased today. When a 10-year-old boy or girl sees a portra... [read more]
  • Corporate research and development is the birthplace of new ideas, new product and new services. Some people refer to it as raising baby tigers. It's how new products get better and satisfy needs we never even knew we had. What's the corollary for a professional photographer? It's a personal project. A personal project is usually just an inkling of an idea, a concept to master or test. It's creating a photograph that you think might be impossible to create or taking an existing concept and mov...
