Video production for the NJ Bar Association

Once again this year the New Jersey Bar Association asked me to produce a video introducing their members to the association’s new president. The video was first shown at the annual convention.

There was an air of excitement in the Borgata Hotel ballroom last week when Evelyn Padin was sworn in as the NJSBA's first Latina president at the association's annual meeting and convention in Atlantic City. Get to know the social worker-turned-lawyer this year as she sets about accomplishing an ambitious agenda to ensure the doors of the courthouse are open to all.

Corporate portrait in Newark

When photographing busy executives is best to have a game plan that allows you capture a variety of dynamic corporate portraits in a short amount of time. For this photo shoot the lobby of the Rutgers Business School was an ideal location. Gary Cohen, who is donating a million dollars to the school, walked into the lobby and 15 minutes later we were done and he was on his way to his next meeting.

What should I wear for a corporate headshot portrait session ?

What should I wear to my headshot session? My best answer is that the clothes should be a great accent but not the first thing that you notice in the photos. It’s a really simple idea but it can be applied no matter the person’s age, gender or occupation.

Below is a corporate executive portrait with a few outfit changes. Each set of clothes looks completely natural and appropriate. Easy changes like this are the easiest during a photo shoot. Take off a tie, add a sweater, take off a jacket, etc…. The concept works well for both men and women.

Grace Eline mentioned during the State of the Union

I was very surprised to see a familiar face during the State of the Union address. As the President discussed additional funding for the battle against childhood cancer he introduced 10 year old Grace Eline. Grace was sitting in the gallery next to the First Lady.

A few months ago I photographed Grace at her New Jersey home for Rutgers Cancer Institute. You can see the video interview below.

Congratulations Grace!
