Blog - April 2009

The image below, taken in the Grand Canyon, is one of twenty five matted and framed photographs that now hang in a newly opened local restaurant in Batavia called Larry's Steakhouse. The images are from a southwest photo trip I took in March 2006. The next two photographs are of the restaurant interior.

Below are two image composites for the front and back of a promotional card I designed for Larry's Steakhouse. Owner Steve Mullen was pleased with the results.  If you look closely you can see my framed artwork hanging on the walls. Georgia and I recently had dinner there and we were very pleased....congrats to the chef!

Digital photography is a dynamic and constantly changing technology.  One of the best ways to stay informed is to attend seminars and workshops. This past week I attended two different educational events.

David Ziser and his "Digital WakeUp Call Tour 2009" were at the Marriott Buffalo/Niagara on Apr 9th. David is a generous and inspirational teacher with over three decades of experience in the photography business. I saw him in 2006 at a similar event. His blog is called Digital Pro Talk and is read daily by thousands of photographers all over the world. After his program, I had the opportunity to talk with him briefly and have this photo taken (David Ziser is on the right):

Tammy Wolfe and Tamar London are inspirational speakers and talented photographers. Their studio is called London Wolfe Photography and is based in central Pennsylvania.  Their two-day program, which took place in Webster, NY... just east of Rochester, covered a variety of topics. They presented a very informative, yet entertaining dialogue, each expressing her views. Although they came from different backgrounds and have very different personalities, they have combined their talents to develop a successful photography business plan.  I'm glad I attended.

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to update the portrait of Dr. JoAnne Cobler. She is a physician at  Buffalo Cardiology & Pulmonary Associates, and has been chosen as one of Business First's Healthcare 50, which honors extraordinary professionals in the medical field. Congratulations Dr. Cobler! The photo below and more detailed info about her accomplishments will appear in the April 2009 issue of "Business First".      

Photos have also been sent to the American Heart Association for the annual Go Red for Women, on May 7, 2009, where  Dr. Cobler is Luncheon Chair. One of the features of the event will be a silent auction, the proceeds of which will benefit research for women and heart disease. Last week, Georgia and I attended a "Gift Gathering Party" at the Iacono Ballroom Center. Those of us who attended donated gifts for the silent auction. All participants had a mini dance lesson from Paula Iacono.  It has been awhile since I have done any dancing - it was fun and good exercise. Later, we saw firsthand how active and fit  Dr. Cobler is. She beautifully demonstrated several different dances, in a performance that lasted about 30 minutes.
Thanks for inviting us!
