Today students from VAFA 211 - Studio & Lighting participated in our fashion & beauty shoot. Many thanks to the fabulous stylists from Freestyle Salon in Newtown who worked their magic with make up and styling. Thanks as well to our models: Margaryta, Margo, Marie and Danielle. Here is a sneak peak of a few of the images. . . .

"But what is striking, said the studio that took the pictures, is that Mr. Remis’s wedding took place in 2003 and he waited six years to sue. And not only has Mr. Remis demanded to be repaid the $4,100 cost of the photography, he also wants $48,000 to recreate the entire wedding and fly the principals to New York so the celebration can be re-shot by another photographer.
Re-enacting the wedding may pose a particular challenge, the studio pointed out, because the couple divorced and the bride is believed to have moved back to her native Latvia."

Due to the decline in print media - magazines, newspapers and the like - funding for in-depth documentary projects has declined sharply. Using a model similar to Kickstarter, Emphas.is seeks to fund documentary projects through project specific donations collected via their website. The photo above was taken by Sarah Elliott and funded by Emphas.is. The project documents rape victims in the Congo. Check out the full story on the NY Times Lens blog here. Thanks to David Wagner for bringing this story to my attention.

The Not-So-Basics of the Photography Business with Neil Binkley
The Not-So-Basics of the Photography Business with Neil Binkley
The emerging and established photographer may find themselves wondering just what it is they need to do to stay afloat in the photography business today. While there is no single approach to success in our industry, or any other industry for that matter, there are many ways that photographers can help themselves bring in more business and stay happy with their career choice. We'll discuss what I consider to be the three guiding principles behind a successful photography business, and even do a case study of one brave, local photographer, to give them tips on their business and creative approach. Presentation by Neil Binkley(www.neilbinkley.com), Photographer's Consultant and former Wonderful Machine Marketing and Publicity Director. Neil's Program will be preceded by a social hour with light refreshments.
