February 23rd, 2010 by | Share Blog

fashion week onsite printIt’s only natural, when you think about it, that the fashion industry has so quickly adopted the internet and all its permutations.  After all, fashion is a visual industry that relies on consumers picking up new trends.  What better way to make that happen than with fashion blogs and websites?

Fashion websites are popping up all over, almost daily, spawning a thriving new genre of the fashion industry.  Some sites provide a visual venue for fashion-hungry hipsters who like showing off their outfits, while others feature fashion bloggers.  For all these websites, photography is a vital component.

Onsite Photos Warm a Winter Day

February 18th, 2010 by | Share Blog

One of the most rewarding aspects of our work here at 5th Avenue Digital is being involved in events that truly help local communities.  event_marketingWhen I see a company that brilliantly merges their marketing efforts with positive social programs, using social media to promote them – well, I have to admit to being impressed and thrilled.  It’s rare to see all these elements come together so effectively.

The North Face, the well-known manufacturer of clothing for outdoor enthusiasts, is the latest company to thrill me with their blend of branding, event marketing and community outreach.  We were pleased and gratified to assist in one of these community events last Saturday, February 13th.

This special event was created and sponsored by Planet Explore, a new online community enabled by The North Face.  Planet Explore, dubbed “a portal to the outdoors,” helps individuals and families learn about and participate in outdoor activities and events in their area.  Planet Explore teamed up with the New York Restoration Project to produce the Winter Warm Up event in Swindler Cove Park, at the Northern tip of Manhattan.

Robert is most notable for photographing the weddings of Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, as well as Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston, and he regularly covers A-list celebrity events.  Based in Southern California, Robert has joined 5th Avenue Digital to allow New York brides access to his phenomenal talent.  One of Robert’s greatest goals when he picks up a camera is evoking emotion from everyone who views his images.  He says, “There is no greater joy in life than touching someone’s heart.”

With a clear vision and artistic eye, Robert’s work and training have earned him the honor of shooting the most intimate day in the lives of hundreds of couples, as well as several awards and prestigious titles.  His work has appeared in almost every major publication, including USA Today, People, US Weekly and INStyle Weddings, Martha Stewart Weddings – further evidence of his exceptional skill and aesthetic vision.

There is not one celebrity in his portfolio, but all the brides look and feel like celebrities! Take a look.  Robert Evans

5th Avenue Digital Introduces a Modern Take on the Photo Booth

February 2nd, 2010 by | Share Blog

The fun of a photo booth never grows old.  Everyone crams into the little space and the camera snaps away, catching all your friends’ faces at their goofiest…it’s a blast!  But it’s also cumbersome and a bit old-school.

Until now!  5th Avenue Digital has re-created that carefree photo booth experience with a modern, more streamlined operation and presentation.  We’ve deconstructed the booth, taking away the walls so people can move around in front of the camera.  It’s like a photo booth set free!   And because people feel more comfortable and relaxed, they get better photos.

Plus: instead of the old strip of photos – and only the strip – you have options.  We can program the booth to deliver a series of images – two, three or even six separate photos; it’s your choice – on one 4×6” or 5×7” print, in black and white or in full color.  We also can brand the photo with a name for a B’nai Mitzvah or wedding, or with a logo for a corporate event.

The 5AD Photo Booth is even lovely to look at – not an ugly black box.  It’s a beautifully varnished birch wood chest with a plexiglass top, roughly the height and width of an average adult, but slightly deeper.  All the elements (camera, printer, paper) are self-contained in the booth, giving a clean silhouette.  Unlike traditional photo booths, ours is free standing with no cramped seating to squeeze into.  You just stand in front of it, press the foot pedal, and voila!  Out come your photos.
