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 October 2008 – food/wine – John Peters

Hello everyone!
So last month, it was NY Fashion Week in Bryant Park as well Advertising week in New York. This month, as many of you already know, is one of the busiest times in the Photography industry. We have Photo Plus Expo at the Javitt’s Center and the Lucie Awardsto name but a few… Also this month from Thursday, October 9th – Sunday, October 12th, 2008 we have The NY Wine & Food Festival . This is hosted by the Food Network Channel located over by the Chelsea Markets. Go to for tickets and more information. So I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my clients who shoot food this month – and here they are:

ChatterArtists September 2008 – clients of the month – Jeremy Beeton

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.”

First up, the Chatterbox website has been refreshed and updated.
So check out the fantastic, new testimonials and the groovy new slideshow here!

ChatterArtists Summer 2008- Illustrators – Jim Stewart

Greetings Everyone!
So here we are – it’s Summertime in the city and it’s humid!
This bulletin will be for both July and August as there are fewer events going on and things slow down.
And, as I have a few clients who are all in the process of finishing up their new websites and image edits,
I thought it would be fun to feature some of my illustrators in this bulletin!
I have worked with a few illustrators/animators on their marketing and websites in the past couple of months.
So enjoy their work and have a wonderful Summer everyone!

Clients of the Summer
Jim Stewart

Jim Stewart is a wonderful “whimsical” illustrator who splits his time between Canada and Hawaii.
We recently revamped his website in preparation for a brand new email marketing campaign.

ChatterArtist of the Month April 2008

Chris Crisman
I met Chris a few years ago when he came and showed at the monthly Photo Salon. I immediately became a big fan of his photography and was thrilled when he asked me a couple of months ago to work with him on his marketing and new website. Chris was also most supportive to me when my computer died a month ago, which “challenged” our editing process but did not deter us from getting the job done! So here’s the brand new site and a sample image from one of his series.
