Montclair Film Festival begins

20140428_124915BID Ambassadors Harry Blackwell and Dylan Blackwell use special ‘spray chalk’ to apply a temporary stencil to the sidewalk in front of my studio on Lackawanna Plaza. Throughout Montclair Center the Business Improvement District is stenciling various famous movie quotes to celebrate the start of the third Montclair Film Festival.

This stencil was the famous line from A League of their Own, “There’s no crying in baseball!”


What’s your favorite quote? (mine “You can’t handle the truth” from A Few Good Men)

The business of Business Portraits

If you are like most people, thinking about having your business portrait done is in the league of going to the dentist.  It’s something we all do — put things off.

HOWEVER, IF … you’re still using the outdated headshot you took two jobs ago … you posted on LinkedIn the snapshot the Caribbean cruise people took … you’ve lost weight, gained weight, got a new hairdo, got new teeth…it’s time to go to the Big Time.  But, don’t make the biggest mistake of all when you choose your photographer (more on that later).

Everyone tells me that having your portrait done is FUN. You’ll come in dreading it, nervous, tense, and when you leave, you’ll be sorry that it’s over. NO KIDDING!

Ann Lilore_05“I was hoping Phil could work MAGIC, and I was not disappointed! Even though I was nervous, Phil made me relax and was very calm in directing me. I am in awe of how beautiful my photographs came out…that was ALL Phil. I will guard these photos with my life!”
– Ann Lilore, Montclair

Mia Insabella_02“I was concerned about looking unnatural, but Phil did a great job!  He was very professional and captured “me” very well.  I would absolutely recommend Phil. He takes his work seriously and has a GREAT eye.”
– Mia Insabella, Caldwell

Adrianne_Davis-01“You are a miracle worker: you don’t just take pictures, you bring out the personality of your subjects.  Thank you for doing such a wonderful job and for making it fun.”
– Adrianne Davis, West Orange

Don’t make this BIG mistake: Whomever you choose to do your photography, make sure they have an iron-clad guarantee!  You should be thrilled with your portrait. If you’re not, you shouldn’t have to pay!

Don’t put it off any further, call or email my studio and take the first step toward enhancing your business, updating your professional image, and making your boss happy (even if you’re the boss)!
