A Real Honor Regarding My Photography

A Real Honor Regarding My Photography

This is something I did not expect. My cousin posted this yesterday about “Bring Your Daughter To Work Day”. She brought her daughter Grace.

“They were asked Whom They Most Admire…. And ummm this is what Grace drew….
My Cousin Christopher…. Because she feels she would like to pursue photography and bring out her inner artist in the future….
I thought it was very cool….”

CRAZINESS! I get so wrapped up in making sure I love my work and a nice result of that is others do too. It’s a huge compliment that someone would recognize my work like that. It’s important that my work strikes a chord with the younger generation.

Always strive for perfection, but know when it cannot be attained. Keep snapping away with your camera, Grace. See if you can convince your parents to get you a small camera to shoot black & white film. I still develop my own black & white film at home. Working in a darkroom will help you further appreciate the power of a single photograph. Keep having fun with whatever you choose to do!

“The Rain Forest Party” book trailer

Hector-Armando from "The Rain Forest Party"This is the second book trailer I created for illustrator/writer Lorraine Dey and it features Hector-Armando and all of his rain forest buddies. I animated portions of the storybook in Adobe After Effects before importing the footage into Adobe Premiere Pro for final editing. My voiceover was recorded using Adobe Soundbooth using a Behringer B-2 PRO condenser microphone. Enjoy!

Central Park Bar/Restaurant in Linden, New Jersey

Central Park Bar/Restaurant in Linden, New Jersey

Central Park, formerly the Cavalier Diner, is a great place to grab a bite to eat. During the day it’s a casual/quasi-upscale restaurant. Most entreees are priced around $20.00 and there is an extensive wine/cocktail list as well as an equally impressive sushi list.

During the night they move many of the tables out of the restaurant and the space is transformed into a nightclub. DJs and dozens of large high definition televisions are mounted to the walls. If you enjoy sports, this would be a great place to watch every major sporting event.

Here is a photo of my burger. I love the “CP” branding on the bun. Nice touch!
