Certificate of Appreciation, Merry Christmas from INSPI

This past weekend I attended a Christmas Party / Potluck at INSPIMIND.  I completed a Video Production / Multimedia Internship with them this past summer.  I drove all the way up from Glassboro to Paterson during finals week to bring my Guyanese Chow Mein dish.   As expected, I had a total blast and I commend this organization because I identify with their mission and will continue to support the cause.  To my surprise, both the Outreach & Retention Team, and the Programming & Research Team awarded me with Certificates of Appreciation.  Happy Holidays!

Photography Credit – Photo Shoot Published

My work assisting Jill Lotenberg on the cover of Mann Publications for the August and September issues were published.

img_0987This is for my work on the photo shoot of Joe Willen of Advantage Title. This memorable shoot took place on beautiful and scenic Northport, Long Island. I actually didn’t expect to receive published photo credit considering this was part of an internship, but this is actually quite awesome. Learn more about Mann Publications.

INSPIMIND – Motivational Student Leaders: THANK YOU

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank INSPIMIND for allowing me to work with their non-profit educational leadership organization this summer.  Being a content creator is truly a wonderful experience when capturing imagery of positive deeds intended to uplift underserved communities.   I enjoyed the time spent engaging with students at Becton Regional High School, Montclair State University, William Paterson University and others.   The programs on College Readiness, Drug and Substance Abuse, Peer Pressure, Mental Health, Stress Management, Depression and Anxiety will certainly benefit the outreached students. 

Although the internship has come to an end, I will continue to patronize events and contribute however possible.  Special thanks to the production team, and founder Wilfredo Betance for being welcoming and providing an excellent educational experience.   Learn more about INSPIMIND.

Career Update: Photo & Video Intern

 know this seems like Deja Vu. No, you aren’t seeing double. Yes, I scored a second internship. I was selected to work as a Photography and Videography intern with award-winning commercial photographer, Jill Lotenberg.

This opportunity is particularly exciting because I’ll be shadowing a female entrepreneur with an established base and carved niche. Personally, I started out in the freelance capacity, and admittedly, I wasn’t very familiar with pricing policies, cancellation policies, scheduling, building a client base etc. So this opportunity will allow me a hands-on intuitive experience where I’ll get to use my on Canon EOS DSLR. I’ll be strengthening my proficiency in CaptureOne and the Adobe Creative Suite.

I won’t have time to spend on the beach this summer, but I’m looking forward to drone shoots, yacht shoots and capturing footage of New York’s movers and shakers in real estate.
