The Pacific Northwest Gem: Whidbey Island

Whidbey Island, just off the coast of Washington State, is a destination all serious travelers need to add to their list. A 55-mile long green strip, stretched between Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca, Whidbey is blessed with surprisingly moderate weather.  It enjoys four distinct seasons, but without the extremes endured by many other northwestern areas.

I was extremely pleased with the diversity of the island’s landscape and the close-knit sense of community I felt as I traversed the island from south to north. Whidbey has wineries, distilleries, a lavender farm, cattle ranches, produce farmers, talented chefs, beekeepers, cheesemakers and clever entrepreneurs and artists, too numerous to mention.  It would take several weeks to explore the island properly, yet even in my three days there, I was fortunate to meet a number of these residents and enjoy the gorgeous scenery that is Whidbey Island.

Getting There

Getting to Whidbey Island can be a challenge, but your efforts will be rewarded.  There are two ways to access the island — by Washington State Ferry on the south end or by means of the Deception Pass Bridge on the northern end.  A shuttle also runs about every two hours from Seattle’s Sea-Tac airport to the island.  Reservations are recommended for both the shuttle and the ferry, especially during the busy summer months.

South Whidbey

When you arrive on Whidbey, you will find you’ve entered another world.  I began to relax on the ferry ride over, promising myself I would leave “my worries and my hurries” behind. After settling into The Inn at Langley, I decided to wander a bit, trekking down the hill to see if any shops were still open. The colorfully painted store fronts of Langley were a treat for the eye. As I strolled, I indulged in luscious, rich chocolates from Sweet Mona’s, a superb cup of coffee from Café and Books, and the best lobster roll I’ve eaten outside of Maine at the Saltwater Café.

My favorite spot to explore by far was the historic 1920’s Star Store, an honest to goodness old-fashioned grocery store. The towering narrow shelves and sometimes crowded aisles brought back fond memories of older grocery establishments I frequented as a child.  Of course, the Star Store was brimming with colorful local produce, meats, and cheeses, an extensive wine and liquor selection, along with local craft beers, one of Whidbey’s trademarks…everything local, if possible.

While walking back to the Inn around sunset, I noticed another Langley trademark — wild rabbits.  They were hopping and nibbling everywhere, all colors and sizes, stopping only to pose for my camera, and then they were off in a flash.  If Whidbey didn’t already have my heart, Langley’s charming furry residents certainly won me over.

After a restful evening listening to the waves outside my balcony, I headed for Mukilteo’s Coffee Roasters and the Café in the Woods. As I discovered, just finding places on Whidbey can be an adventure in itself.  Following several winding roads through looming evergreen trees that seemed to touch the overcast sky, I finally saw a sign for the coffee roasters. An arrow pointed the way farther into the dark green woods, and the narrow road led to a rather large opening with an unremarkable metal and wood building at the center. 

The unmistakable aroma of freshly roasting coffee filled the parking area and drew me in.  I was unprepared for the magical world behind the ordinary door I entered.  Startled by a massive golden dragon’s head protruding from near the ceiling over the baristas’ station, I craned my neck to look at the nearly ten-foot silver carp “swimming” on the ceiling.  Farther in, café tables were surrounded by a backdrop of Tuscan villas and Italian countryside.  Mukilteo’s is a favorite with the locals, and I was starting to see why. As wonderful as the café and roasters are, I discovered it’s the owners, Gary and Beth Smith, and the outstanding staff that makes Mukilteo’s such a special place. Not only do the Smiths give back in a big way to the local community, but they also give back to the coffee growers and their often impoverished communities.

I had a chance to sit down for a few minutes with Gary and Beth and listen to their amazing story.  Stories are my passion, and I found that on Whidbey stories of struggle, success, determination, and courage are the norm. This is a community of extraordinary people. People from diverse backgrounds, cultures, religions, and politics together are able to create a wonderful place to live and work. To me, that is one of the best things about Whidbey.

Another couple, Vincent and Tyla Nattress, offer cooking classes, wine appreciation, and farm-to-table dinners that will leave you wanting to start your own garden and raise hens.  At Chef Vincent’s, produce is only steps away from the kitchen, and he carefully chooses local producers of seafood and meats to complement the seasonal vegetable and fruit selections. The night I was there, some of the treats we enjoyed were Scarlet Runner Beans and Sweet Corn Succotash, Braised Beef Tortellini and Roasted Eggplant Caviar, and Ebb Tide Strawberries & Crispy Meringue with Crème Fraiche Ice Cream.  The farmhouse dinners and cooking classes are popular, and reservations are highly recommended.

Coupeville

Near the “waist” of Whidbey Island (which is only about 1.5 miles wide), on Penn Cove, sits the seaside village of Coupeville, famous for its delicious mussels.  Penn Cove mussels are sought after world-wide, and if you pass by the cove going north, you can see the long rectangular mussel beds that produce this seafood wonder.

Coupeville has its own claim to fame as the setting for the Sandra Bullock/Nicole Kidman movie, Practical Magic. You can visit the 1890’s former pharmacy building where the scenes in Sally’s shop, Verbena Botanicals, were filmed. Today, it houses the bakery Knead & Feed.  I dropped by to take a look inside and sample some coffee and one of their snickerdoodle cookies that were as big as my head. The entire town was painted white for the movie, and many of the shops maintain that look even today.

I also stopped by the Lavender Wind shop on the corner of Alexander and Coveland Streets.  Housed in a restored 1916 craftsman home, the shop offers dried lavender goods, gift items, and delicious baked goods you can enjoy in their cozy tea room. I’ve wanted to try baking some lavender scones, so I picked up some culinary lavender along with some great baking tips from Sarah Richards, the owner. If you have time, visit the lavender farm about three miles north of Coupeville.  On a clear day, you will be rewarded with stunning views of the Olympic Mountains and the Strait of Juan de Fuca.  A small shop at the farm is open in summer. 

Oak Harbor

Busier than the other parts of Whidbey, Oak Harbor has about 23,000 inhabitants, the island’s largest population. Here you will find the only big box stores and chains. The Naval Air Station Whidbey Island is here, and it is not uncommon for conversations to be temporarily drowned out as low-flying Navy jets do their fly-bys, but no one seems to mind.  The Coachman Inn is reasonably priced and centrally located to several attractions like the PBY-Naval Air Museum and Deception Pass State Park.

My favorite chef in Oak Harbor, not only delivers a spectacular culinary experience but gives his heart and soul to the island community.  Chef Fraser donates his time to several community projects. Eight out of the last 12 years, his mentorship has brought home Washington State’s “ProStart Invitational” culinary competition title to Oak Harbor High School. When you go, ask to be seated at the chef’s counter for an up-close view of the kitchen and a chance to speak to him.  Fraser’s Gourmet Hideaway is an experience you don’t want to miss.

Whidbey Island is a patchwork of landscapes, people, and lifestyles worth exploring. It is a destination I hope you add to your list. I’m glad it was on mine.

Are my headshots Copyrighted?!

Its not always clear to a client that when they pay a photographer for their  photoshoot, the photographer still owns the images. This is called copyright, and it is in place to protect the photographers work from being exploited and allows them to keep creative control of their work. So what is the definition of copyright (©)? Copyright is a legal right created that grants the creator of an original work exclusive rights for its use and distribution.Terms and Conditions Each photographer will have slightly different ways of working with copyright and these should be  explained to the client in their terms and conditions. Think of it like this, normally the images from your shoot are licensed to you for your personal and business promotional use (things like spotlight, personal and agent websites, your business cards etc), but would not be permitted for commercial use, this means if a theatre show wanted to use your headshot on their promo poster, it is out of the licence and they would need to contact the photographer directly to get permission, and there may be a fee involved. On the other hand, if they wanted to put your photo in the programme against your credits, then this is for your personal promotion rather than the show so it is permitted.Editing Copyright also covers the adapting and editing of photos, and this means that you would not be able to edit your own photos, including cropping and turning photos to black and white. This is why a lot of the time, you will find your un-edited photos will have a watermark on them, to prevent people using them without permission. Personally, my business runs on the quality of my images, and people will book in for a shoot based on those photos, any work I put into the public eye directly reflects back on my business and I need to ensure my work is to the highest standard. There has been cases where I have had to contact clients and agents and ask them to remove images that had been self-edited because, to be honest, they looked terrible! It reflects badly not only on the photographer, but also on the client.Crediting As part of a photographers t&c’s you may be required to credit the photographer when using their images, whether its online or in print, it is usual to put their name on the photo. If in doubt about anything regarding copyright, always contact the photographer and ask first, and always credit the photographer when you can. If you don’t adhere to copyright laws, the worse case scenario is you could be taken to court by the owner of the material you misuse and be left with an expensive bill!You can see my Terms and Conditions here: http://ift.tt/2yD0khk more information about copyright, please visit: http://ift.tt/1itt0gm

My headshot LOVES and HATES

 "Oh no, i’m scared… Are you one of those photographers that’s going to shout at me and tell me off for not doing it right!?"
Absolutely not, but there are certain things that in the last decade of photographing headshots that I have come to love and hate from clients before, during and after shoots, and sharing these can hopefully help you to prepare for your session and get the beston the from your shoot. Bring your wardrobe
Bring plenty of clothes with you, a whole bunch… seriously.
You may love that selection of black tops you have, but bring some colour, varied necklines, it may be that a certain colour doesn’t suit you on camera and we need to have some more choice. For the sake of bringing a slightly bigger bag on the day, it may make all the difference to your shoot.
Remember, just because you see photos of everyone else in a certain top, colour, or jacket, doesn’t necessarily mean it will suit you or your casting. Any photographer worth their money will be able to guide you on what suits you.
Don’t put yourself down
A lot of the times, the key to looking good in your headshot is confidence. If you can enter the shoot with a positive outlook and mentality, it will put you in a great position for the start of your shoot. 
The amount of times I’ve had a client say "I hate having headshots taken, this is my idea of hell" or "I always look awful in headshots – I don’t photograph well", it puts you in a really negative space to start shooting. Its nice to share this with your photographer, but there is no point dwelling on it for the entire shoot.
Even if you feel like having headshots taken is the worst thing on earth and would rather have all your teeth removed with pliers, you need to trick yourself into thinking the opposite. change your mental space. Our job as photographers is to make you look as appealing and castable as possible, your job is to come with an open mind and allow us to direct you to get the best results. 
Timing is the key
Being late stresses you (and me) out, being early leaves you feeling bored and anxious with waiting. Pitch it right, allow yourself to arrive 10mins before your shoot, and use tools and apps like Citymapper, TFL and google to plan your journey efficiently. 
Get nerdy
I love lists. My favourite clients are the ones that have thought about their casting, filled in the casting types survey on their client booking page (this is a tool you can use when you book a session) and come with a rough breakdown of what they expect from their shoot. If you don’t tell me what we are aiming for in the shoot, you can’t always expect me to get it 100% right for you. 
Look at other people’s headshots, work out what you like about them, is it the style? Is it the lighting? Is it the angles? Is it the clothing? What makes that headshot stand out? Save photos you like as a reference on the day, it makes a nice discussion point at the beginning of our shoot. 
Above all, the biggest thing is to enjoy the shoot as much as you can and think of it like the hairdressers not the dentist! Don’t take yourself too seriously and feel free to play about a bit during the shoot, it’ll make it a much more enjoyable experience for everyone, and with better results at the end!

Wine Tasting in CT Is Always Most Enjoyable During Foliage Season!

The top wines in the world are meant to be enjoyed over a meal with family and friends.
Exactly like food, your first taste a wine starts with your eyes. You can be told a good deal about the wine by the color of a wine. 1 hint is, when looking at a wine, then hold out the glass and tilt it a little bit.

Attempt to maintain the wine on a surface such as a white table cloth, plain white plate, napkin or alternative sterile surface. At this point, you need to notice the depth of color from the rim. To completely comprehend the ramifications in this case, it will help to have a understanding of a wine must search for its grape varietal, growing season and era.

For the time being, we’re likely to concentrate on Bordeaux wine, that is a combination dominated by Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. To get a Bordeaux wine, the wine ought to be dark, displaying a depth of colour from the rim. The color can comprise dark or purple blue, often shiny accents. Richer and deeper colors let the taster understand this is a wine that is concentrated. For my palate, depth and concentration of taste is a good thing.

Wines that lack color are going to be lighter ripe and acidic in style. This is natural for wines produced from Pinot Noir. However, for wines produced using Bordeaux types, you wish to see an excellent, rich color. The depth of color is also a beginning indicator of a wines style. An dark Bordeaux is going to be intense, mouth filling reduced and long. Young Bordeaux or youthful Bordeaux styled roses with pale colors will be lighter in flavor, with red fruits compared to brighter and white black .

How to Taste Wine, Enjoy Wine, Evaluate Wine like Professional Tasters
The very first step in knowing how to taste would be wine is get over your anxiety. There is no right or wrong. You are going to enjoy what you like as you like. Do not listen to geek at the wine shop. He can not decide what wine is most effective for your palate you can, although he tastes a lot more wine than you do.

Too many people make wine too complicated. Wine as a drink that is unique is complicated. Recognizing wine is simple. Comparing wines is much simpler. To get a look at wines scored and are rated when compared to other wines at the peer group read on to see how and why wines scored and are rated in a system.

You have looked at the wine already, what’s next in learning to taste wine like an expert? That is easy. When we looked evaluate it, remember? Now, smell, we’re likely to swirl and sniff the wine. The sense of smell is stronger than you realize. It’s a key component to understanding how to taste wine like a sommelier.

The difficulty most folks have with wine is “oenophobia,” a panic of wine. The anxiety comes from the a variety of factors starting with unfamiliarity and how to talk about wine and clarify what you’re tasting.

How to Examine a glass of wine.
Next in your visual test of the wine is the legs or tears on the side of the glass. This is not important. If you like, you may jump. But as you have heard lots of folks comment about legs or the tears at a wine, even if you didn’t jump ahead, let’s cover it now.

The best way to understand the smells, bouquet, aromas or cologne of a wine.
Oenophobia, the fear of wine. Let’s eliminate any fear you might have concerning wine tasting because wine is a true drink, so sit back and relax and enjoy that woody flavor.

Some Connecticut wines are expensive, some inexpensive. The YouTube video below may help you understand how to correctly taste wine and why this one issue should be seriously factored in to your final decision prior to purchasing your next case of vino.

Enjoy Unique Wine Tasting at the Best Wineries in CT!

Looking for the best wineries in CT? Out for a Sunday drive looking at the beautiful fall foliage, then all of the sudden the wine tasting bug gets you?

The Constitution State has much to offer to it’s residents as far as entertainment and vineyard hopping is concerned. Connecticut wineries produce some of the best wines in the Northeast, and some local wine tasting connoisseurs actually believe a few select vineyards in CT are in direct competition with some world famous California vineyards in Napa Valley. How’s that for putting up some stiff competition in the wine tasting arena? https://goo.gl/2BbJVY

“People have been tasting wine for thousands of years. People have been making money as wine tasters for more than 100 years. What do they know that you don’t? When it comes to tasting wine and understanding how to evaluate a wine for its qualities and note its faults, after reading this page, not much. Of course they will have a greater understanding on the history of the wine, the grape, the appellation the wine came from, as well as the chemistry behind things, but knowing those types of interesting information are not going to make you a better taster.”
Read more at: https://goo.gl/hbBP3D

In reality, a wine’s color is due to several factors, including skin contact time and the type of grape varietal the wine is made of. Past experiences may have taught us that whites are more pale yellow when young and turn darker amber as they age. We associate brickish brown red wines as old and deeper purple wines as young. By seeing the color we may make an unconscious predisposition towards that wine.
A wine’s overall quality assessment, based on this examination, follows further careful description and comparison with recognized standards, both with respect to other wines in its price range and according to known factors pertaining to the region or vintage; if it is typical of the region or diverges in style; if it uses certain wine-making techniques, such as barrel fermentation or malolactic fermentation, or any other remarkable or unusual characteristics
You’ll find that your wine knowledge is like a tornado; you learn wine tasting and vineyard jargon more quickly and easily as you move forward in the process. As with anything else in life, hard workers that are self-motivated will graduate to the ranks of professional wine connoisseur much sooner than others who are less driven.  https://goo.gl/zHPrQP
If you have a hankering for a smooth Merlot or a dry Chardonnay, or maybe you just want something that’s earthy, fleshy, herbaceous, nutty or oaky. The best wineries in CT have much to offer with a variety of wines and wine tasting events to fully satisfy even the most savvy vineyard dweller.

How to Plan Your Photo Shoot with Kristen Jensen
https://goo.gl/JcZv9e

Lola Elise adds her own perspective below to a professional photo shoot as she does in the Denver area.

photo-shoots-nyc-brunette-model-image

Most of the cover photos for famous magazines and different publications are taken with very simple photographic tools. If you carefully look at the photos, you can probably tell what the light source is from the shadows that fall on the model and roughly understand what really went into making that specific production. While anyone can take a photo using the same tools, it, does not necessarily mean that you will end up with the same cover page.

The Subtle Differences in a Professional Photo Shoot Can Make All the Difference in the World https://goo.gl/qItLZR

What really makes a big difference in a photo are small elements, grouped together to make a big impact. Let’s count the most prominent elements which make a photo a cover photo or editor’s choice. Photo shoots NYC. Even if you are simply looking into creating more content for your portfolio and need to have an impact on your future clientele, you might want to read through this article to understand what goes into the production of any planned photo shoot, small or big.

Before you venture on using the “free portfolio” suggestion, make sure you have something to offer to the agency. For you to be considered, you have to prove to the agency that you are competent. While agencies might entertain the idea of involving you, they will make sure that you have some pictures you can showcase. Professional photo shoots NYC need to be setup by an experienced photographer and crew.That kind of beats the purpose and puts us in square one, right? Don’t sweat and put the above idea as plan B.

photo-shoot-locations-nyc

Depending on the type of photography you are venturing into, find clubs, groups of people with similar passion and become a member. See what they are saying about industry creatives and look for those who are willing to work with you.

https://goo.gl/8V0jHL

However, it is much harder to find vendors who will be willing to work with you for free. NYC professional photo shoots, are exciting and original. Unless it is a collaborative and creative work from which vendors will get splendid photographs for their portfolios, involving them might be very tricky and hard. If you are a hotshot photographer and everyone dreams of working with you, you are one lucky helluva son of a gun. If not, well, lots of work to do by yourself initially. https://goo.gl/5ao3sV

professional-photo-shoot-nyc

Don’t get me wrong, even amazing photographers started out somewhere and most of them still work on their own sets and create amazing things. But all the help you can get from outside will make your work that much easier. Be patient and get to know your peers. Look for vendors who are starting out and want to work with photographers to highlight their work and add some juice to their portfolios. If you do a good job, they will come back for more.

Driving Downtown – Stamford Connecticut USA

Driving Downtown – Stamford Connecticut USA
Driving Downtown – Stamford Connecticut USA – Episode 36.
Starting Point: http://ift.tt/2lbiyQ1 .
Stamford is a city in Fairfield County, Connecticut, United States. Stamford is home to four Fortune 500 Companies,[2] nine Fortune 1000 Companies, and 13 Courant 100 Companies, as well as numerous divisions of large corporations. This gives Stamford the largest financial district in New York Metro outside New York City itself and one of the largest concentrations of corporations in the nation.

Economy
Among the larger companies with headquarters in Stamford are Vineyard Vines, WWE, Tasty Bite, Pitney Bowes, Gen Re, Frontier Communications, Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide, Crane Co., and Charter Communications. UBS also has its North American headquarters here and its trading floor holds the Guinness World Record as the largest column-less trading floor in the world. The Royal Bank of Scotland moved its North American operations into Stamford in 2009, including its RBS Greenwich Capital subsidiary.[14]

In recent years, many large corporations have moved offices outside of the city due to the high rental cost, including Xerox, MeadWestvaco, International Paper, GE Capital, NBC, and Clairol. The Harbor Point development, located in the South End, is one of the largest private-sector development projects in the United States.[15] Many large retail stores, such as Design within Reach and Fairway Market have moved in, along with multiple hedge funds.

History
In the 1960s and 1970s, Stamford’s commercial real estate boomed as corporations relocated from New York City to peripheral areas.[5] A massive urban redevelopment campaign during that time resulted in a downtown with many tall office buildings. The F.D. Rich Co. was the city-designated urban renewal developer of the downtown in an ongoing redevelopment project that was contentious, beginning in the 1960s and continuing through the 1970s. The company put up what was the city’s tallest structure, One Landmark Square, at 21 floors high, and the GTE building (now One Stamford Forum), along with the Marriott Hotel, the Stamford Town Center and many of the other downtown office buildings. One Landmark Square has since been dwarfed by the new 35-story Trump Parc condominium tower (topped out), and soon by the 400-foot 39 story Ritz Carlton Hotel and Residences development, another project by the Rich Company in partnership with Cappelli Enterprises.[6] Over the years, other developers have joined in building up the downtown, a process that continued, with breaks during downturns in the economy, through the 1980s, 1990s and into the new century.

About actors headshots:
Actors’ head shots, when printed and not simply uploaded online to an industry database, are done in an 8″×10″ format. Other promotional images, for example, press shots and lobby prints, may be in many different aspect ratios. Acting head shots are often not photographic prints, instead they are typically printed via a lithographic or laser process.

The main purpose of an actor’s head shot is identification. Therefore, the most important feature of an actor’s head shot is that it represents the subject. Theatrical head shots are usually very “neutral” looking shots of the actor clearly showing their facial features.

professional-headshots-boston-male-model-image

Head shots are intended to show a person as they currently appear and reflect their best qualities. Therefore, if an actor’s hair has been recently cut or colored, they would often get a new head shot to reflect their new image. Additionally, if an actor has a scar or facial blemish, it is expected to be visible on the head shot and not digitally removed from the image. Pimples or spots are temporary and, therefore, are usually digitally retouched.

Professional headshots West Hartford CT and modeling headshots West Hartford CT are only two ways you can locate the best headshot photographer in West Hartford CT. Our studio offers affordable service at reasonable prices!

Kristen Jensen has been in the business of portrait and headshot photography for several years. Her professional modeling experience with the Ford modeling agency has served her well from a perspective of what it’s like to be on the “receiving end” of the photographer’s camera lens.

Ms. Jensen’s years of experience as a professional headshot photographer clearly shows in her work! She is one of the best portrait photographers in the Farmington River Valley, Hartford County CT, and has many satisfied clients all throughout the state of Connecticut. https://goo.gl/g8RBlO

Any West Hartford headshot photographer worth their salt, usually belongs to a professional photographers association like The Connecticut Professional Photographers Association (CTPPA) and the local chamber of commerce. https://goo.gl/UYqwNK

Having the perfect portrait or headshot is paramount to getting the interview and or corporate job position you really want.

Portrait photography is a type of photography that focuses on capturing a person’s likeness, particularly their face. Need headshots West Hartford CT? Posing is an important aspect of portrait photography. In order to capture these photographs, the subjects will usually need to pose, or sit in a specific way.

Many portrait photographers travel to events such as weddings or picture days at schools. Portrait photographers must keep organized in their bookings and have all of the photography equipment they need to produce good quality finished portraits.

Customers are paying for the end result of the portrait and not the time the photographer must take to get the finished picture, so photographers must use their time wisely.

Time is not a renewable resource, that’s why you should consider the services of model headshots West Hartford CT and acting headshots West Hartford CT. For example, a portrait/headshot photographer may choose to develop his or her own film or send it out for developing depending on which option costs less and results in a better finished portrait.

I know reading about having film developed may seem a bit antiquated but 35mm color and black and white film is making a comeback https://goo.gl/hwMRFk.

Even in this age of high resolution, high-pixel digital single-lens reflex cameras (DSLR), many cutting edge headshot photographers are currently experimenting with film, as 35mm film allows for more freedom, originality and special effects than digital cameras do.

How awesome would it be to celebrate your wedding ceremony and reception at a wine vineyard in Connecticut?
http://goo.gl/NK7nFA

For more helpful information on vineyards in CT for weddings go to the following link: http://ctwine.com

What is a Connecticut Winery?

A winery is a place where wine is produced: it’s where the grapes are processed, stems and leaves removed, and fruit crushed. The grape juice is fermented and aged for a set period of time then bottled before being shipped out for distribution.

Take a nice Sunday drive and see why we boast some of the best wine tasting in CT! It doesn’t matter if you’re into Barbera, Burgundy, Carménère, Chianti, Grenache, Moscato, Petite Sirah, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Franc, Chardonnay, Gamay, Grüner Veltliner, Malbec, Pinot Grigio, Gris, Rosé, Syrah & Shiraz, Bordeaux, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Gewürztraminer, Merlot, Nebbiolo, Pinot Noir, Rioja, pr all the sparkling wines… If you love wine and the social life surrounding it, you’re hooked and there’s no escaping it!

A winery is basically where every part of the process of creating wines takes place once the grapes have finished growing and have been harvested. As explained above, though, a winery is not the same as a vineyard.
http://goo.gl/dGdxal

It’s very common for vineyards and wineries to be at the same location and managed by the same people, but there are many cases where they are separated.

There are quite a few small, family-owned vineyards in the world which can’t afford to own and run their own wineries, so they ship out their grapes to larger wineries for processing.
http://ift.tt/2gGLNEx

There are wineries which specialize solely in producing wine from grapes sent to them from smaller vineyards and there are wineries which create wines from both their own grapes and grapes sent to them by others. http://goo.gl/7f1VMh

As a former Ford model https://goo.gl/H6BwCU and actress, Kristen has been seen through the camera lenses of many well respected and highly regarded modeling and fashion photographers throughout Europe, and all over the world.

Speaking of camera lenses, nothing is more disturbing than a near-dynamic headshot that fails simply because of lens distortion.

Headshot Tip for using the correct headshot lens:

Generally, avoid mid to wide angle lenses for close headshots. Instead, use a lens that will compress your image and slim your subjects face, typically 90mm lens focal length and above.

Quoted from Kristen’s LinkedIn profile:

“A charismatic, accomplished Image Strategist, Photographer and Videographer who brings a modern style to all her assignments. Focused, innovative, up-beat, an articulate communicator and spokeswoman, Kristen has exceptional interpersonal skills; this goal- oriented team player will be an asset to any forward thinking organization seeking fresh ideas and a stylish approach.”

About the APHP:
For as long as there have been headshots, there have been headshot professionals. Usually working alone, acquiring expertise and knowledge slowly, keeping it to themselves. But a few years ago a group of us began to share our experiences, good and bad.

We made a community where there had only been sole-practitioners, and found that we had similar ideas about what could improve the industry for photographers, actors, agents and drama schools.

Over time these ideas coalesced via conversations, meetings and plans, as 14 founding professionals, joined by many more established photographers, built a new association, geared towards improving everything about headshots in the industry.

Just as the Casting Directors Guild or the PMA have brought standardization, ethical norms, good practice and better communication to their fields of expertise, so will the APHP.

Kristen’s past, present and future clients rest easy knowing she is constantly up to date with the latest photographic trends, technology and special effects via ongoing education and networking deep inside various professional headshot organizations.

The following was curated from Bender Consulting Services. https://goo.gl/RzCPwj

“Many people believe that the only way they are known to a prospective employer is by the interview itself, and the references provided during the interviewing process — False.

So often, an employer will ask other employees if they know a prospective hire, or they will confidentially call a friend from the prospective hire’s current or prior place of employment. These “behind the scenes” references are often what determines a resultant offer or rejection letter.

Once you enter the workforce, you immediately begin painting a self-portrait every day, by your behavior and performance in the office, or in the field. Do you think corporate headshots NYC would add to or improve your idea of a self-portrait? You bet it would!

Your overall job performance, attitude and deliberate well planned actions, constitute small paint strokes every day of your work life, and in the end, a self-portrait is produced for the business community to view.
