• CUNY Graduate School of Journalism

    Had the pleasure of working with Bob Sacha during May'16 workshop through CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, on Visual Storytelling. This was my 2nd workshop and I'll be back for more!

    The goal: tell a story without the use of 'talking heads,' a phenomenon that occurs all too frequently with video. My partner, journalist Issam Khoury, needed to attend a live demonstration mid-workshop, thus I fell back on familiar ways to complete the project.

    I highly recommend CUNY for skill-set building. Great venue (heart of New York City) and instructors are pros with years of industry experience.

    November 11, 2011
    It's always in the least likely places that I'm inspired. A recent project
    photographing residents in nursing home was one such experience.
    I'd been to Assisted Living facilities before but this one was different.
    Skyview Center Nursing Home was comfortable and the people
    working there smiled - alot. I got the feeling of being cared for
    myself when Sue Brooks, Director, led me around introducing
    each person we encountered.

    There were two photographers involved - myself and Mark Acme.
    Sue and Skyview staff members curated our images which culminated
    in an art show reception.

    The 'Stories Through Photography' project was a unique opportunity.
    Sometimes people don't want their photograph taken, especially if
    they aren't feeling their best. The portraits are a glimpse at a population
    that is elderly but not without vanity. Seeing that was a moment
    of grace for me. I was privleged to work alongside an angel, Sue.
    A genuinly warm person, her caring is felt by all.

  • 'Nature Nourishes' Art Show

    Auguest 20, 2011
    Two images of mine were part of juried group art exhibit that opened
    Aug. 19: 'Nature Nourishes' Artspace Hartford, CT.

    The signature piece consisted of a huge antique table and chairs that were
    'dressed' in moss. Beautiful china settings were placed at each seat where
    the food looked like weeds. The collaborative installation by artists
    Lori Robeau and Karen Talbot signify what appears to be one thing
    is actually another. The wild plants are in fact edible nourishments.

    Groups shows are a wonderful opportunity for artists of different mediums to interpret
    a theme. From a social standpoint every one benefits from seeing one thought
    expressed by many.

  • W.Hartford, CT

    August, 2011
    Worked as Guest Editor, for W. Hartford, CT Patch.
    It was sad to cover a suicide symposium for the law enforcement sector.
    Four Connecticut officers took their lives this year and the organizer,
    Connecticut Alliance to Benefit Law Enforcement (CABLE), addressed
    PTSD effects and that effort, I hope will enlighten those who choose a
    profession that helps everyone, realize it's ok to protect themselves.

    I had the pleasure of interviewing an 18-year officer as he said good-bye
    to his partner of nine years,K-9 officer Kora, a beautiful female shepherd.
    The happy part of the story is Kora remains the officer's pet so their relationship
    while different, is intact.

  • Wedding Anniversary - Wow

    July 11, 2011
    A twenty year wedding anniversary doesn't happen everyday so I thought I'd mention it.
    I'm impressed!

  • News Editor

    July 4 - July 10, 2011
    Worked as local editor on AOL media site:
    Southington Patch.

    During the week I saw stories about animal rescue, an outpouring of support for two brothers whose parents died from a domestic violence murder-suicide, debate over a bonding appropriation for school overhauls, and live music performance on the town green.

    What is most telling about unrelated events is they each share a commonality - every one event can be broken down to one person and one story. Great to see people come together to assist others, research impact of a town budget or simply enjoy life.

  • Look3 Festival of The Photograph

    June 3, 2011
    Completed photography workshop: www.look3.org
    What a interesting few days - shooting, critiquing and digesting
    as much photography related news, imagery as possible.
    The World Press Photo 11 exhibit was truly heart wrenching.

    Journalists, while not soldiers with guns, are soldiers of information.
    They put themselves in harms way in order to tell stories of
    inhumanity beyond comprehension.

    Whether photographers ourselves or not, we all share one thing in
    common - this planet. All men, women and children have a right to
    life and the basic necessities - food and water to survive.

    Take a look at war stories and those issues within our own county -
    poverty, joblessness, homelessness, illness, etc and see more truthfully
    about life.
