Although I'm not in Newport this weekend, if you're heading to the Newport International Boat Show today or tomorrow, please drop by and visit our clients who are attending and debuting new additions to their trade show offerings. Great Island Boat Yard (GIBY) will be displaying a video I made for them this past summer. I met Steve and Stephanie Rowe about 3 years ago and we started talking about a video for GIBY. At that time, I was working on a quite a few videos for my clients, but only as a shooter and content provider. Although I had edited many pieces to music, editing one to interviews was a step forward. After fine tuning the storyboards and pre-production, this summer, for the first time, I produced, shot, and edited the GIBY video myself. John Snyder of Marine Media provided his expertise for the sound and interview (thank you John!), and Steve Rowe and his customers made it breeze. The result showcases the beauty, efficiency, and family oriented nature of the Harpswell, Maine boatyard. It is viewing at GIBY's booth in Newport this weekend, and here:
Artisan Boatworks was ready for a fresh, updated trade show booth presence, and my studio manager, Jane Kurko, designed the new display. Jane has been with me since 2008. In addition to managing the gallery and being my second shooter on assignments, she also designs my marketing collateral, print ads and photo books. Simultaneously, she has kept a handful of freelance graphic design clients during her days off. Since so many of my clients have had design needs, earlier this year she brought her talents in house to service Langley Photography clients as well. Here are two shots of Artisan's booth in Newport (images are courtesy of Alec Brainerd, president of Artisan Boatworks).
