You're Encountering A Place Where the Seemingly Ordinary can be

 transformed into the Extraordinary

Okay, so above you see samples of having fun

experimenting with different expressions.

Your new complimentary Facebook Profile picture,

taken during my 2012 promotion for this,

should also show some humor and go for an

over-the-top expression or gesture

to help you stand out from the crowd.

Think out-of-that-little-box and bring a hat,

tie, scarf, t-shirt , glasses, or any meaningful prop!

So loosen up - your Facebook Profile picture update has arrived!

Your new Facebook image will be added to your cd

when you book in 2011 for a regular portrait...absolutely free!

CALL 516-746-4468 NOW for Your Appointment

(and be sure to remind me you are due the fun Facebook pose!)

We always try to be aware for the


wonderful and spontaneous!

Okay, A Little More About Moi:

Okay, a little about moi

Okay, a little more about moi:

A very fortunate fellow with clients who have stayed with me since 1982.

 My passion has always been to chase the light and find where the shadows are falling.

If someone comes to me to create their visual message, I owe them the best of my resources and enthusiasm.

 Through these years I have been producing hundreds of portraits.

I use Photoshop CS4 and go over the entire landscape of the face to insure it is handsome or beautiful.
