ChatterArtists of the Month Holiday 2008

Michele Kawka

I worked with Michelle some months back on editing her work for a new website. As we worked on the edit her images created the categories, which was just as well because we were struggling with how to present her wide range of work! “Across Cultures” became the main portfolio and summed up her creative vision and love of diverse cultures, especially living in the melting pot of New York, as we do! This is one of my favorite images from the Venice Carnivale.

ChatterLog November 2008

Greetings Everyone!
I am so thrilled to dedicate this month’s bulletin to our 44th President Elect – Barack Obama! It has truly been an exciting and moving experience to be part of such a historical moment. To see the faces in the crowds – of all races and colors and creeds – was truly inspiring. And as my sister said in a very excited email, it is not just America, but the whole world that needs this sort of change and inspirational leadership. And for that reason, we are highlighting a couple of my clients’ images of our next president.

In addition, this “Obamabulletin” will also include some December events and holiday parties. So mark your calendars now – the next bulletin will not go out until nearer the end of the year! And don’t forget to check out my Creatives Round Table Panel on Tuesday, November 18th @ Adorama!
This is a brand new line-up with seven fantastic industry creatives!

And most importantly – Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
With a brighter future ahead, may we all have something to be thankful for this year!

ChatterArtists of the Month September 2008

Greetings everyone!

I hope you all had a wonderful Summer and so now, it’s back to business and time for the season of “Fall.”
Now where I come from, we call it “Autumn,” so have you ever wondered why we also call this season “Fall?”

I’m sure you have all noticed how after the Summer Solstice, the days gradually get shorter and the sun begins to set earlier. We literally lose one minute of precious “photographic” light each day until we reach the Winter Solstice and the shortest day of the year. During this time, the sun is literally said to be “falling” from the sky and thus the season became known as the “Fall.”
