Hotshot Headshot Harvard Event Last week we hosted 40 women from the Harvard Business School Women’s Association of Greater New York, giving them professional headshots done in our studio, along with a night of networking and learning about social media.  It was an ideal opportunity for these high-powered, hard-driving women from Google, Morgan Stanley, Time Warner Cable and other top-tier companies to update their headshots along with their social media skills. 

Using two photographers, three make-up artists and three people to help each woman review and select their best shots, the event was organized to give them a lot of benefit from just a few hours.  While waiting for their make-up or portrait session, Betsy Kent of Be Visible Associates shared her expertise about getting the most from LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google analytics.  (more…)

Christie & Joe’s Comedy Club Engagement Shoot

Comedy Club Engagement Shoot What better way to conquer someone’s heart than through humor and laughter?  Christie and Joe exemplify this perfectly.  Because they’re both comedians, they chose to have their engagement photos taken at a comedy club, tracing it back to where it all began.

Robert Evans is their wedding photographer and he flew from LA to do their engagement portraits.  We call Robert our celebrity photographer, because he’s photographed weddings for Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton, and Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston.  (Remember, the success of the marriage has nothing to do with the photographer!)  Despite those high profile assignments, Robert truly enjoys shooting non-celebrities best.  He likes connecting with people who are more like him: genuine, down-to-earth, warm-hearted.

5th Avenue Digital Decor PhotoHere at 5th Avenue Digital, we’re often asked by our clients to photograph exhibits, displays, room decor and venues.  Sometimes this is done in concert with event coverage, and sometimes separately.  Regardless, I’m always impressed with way our photographers capture these types of images. What could be dull and static becomes lively and colorful with the right photographer. (more…)
