Networking Success Story - Steve Wallace

I learned early on in my career that business is about relationships. But being new to the industry, I didn't know how to cultivate the necessary relationships that would be beneficial in helping me grow my business. Before long, I was being encouraged to attend business networking events, but found that most of the advertised events I went to didn't serve my purposes. What attracted me to Friends of Kevin is actually what makes the group so great; I was referred to Kevin Willett by one of his members, Brian Gardner. Since my initial meeting with Kevin, and after attending his networking events for the past two years, this is what I have learned from my experiences with Friends of Kevin: the people that attend his events and are in his groups are interested in providing competitive value to their customers. I choose to do the same by having a large network of trusted professionals, almost all of which were met through Friends of Kevin. By having experienced professionals in my network, who I now call friends, I become more of a trusted advisor to my clients than an insurance or investment salesman, because they can count on me to refer them to the right people, in addition to everything else I do. I'm able to be that trusted advisor, thanks to networking in Friends of Kevin

Photo Tips from Dan Splaine Photography



Taking it to the Street!


Photo Tips and Updates!





STREET PHOTOGRAPHY- Capturing poignant moments


Historically, as cameras became more portable we gained more ability to capture the spontaneous.  Large view cameras, limited to studio settings gave way to hand held roll film gear and the genre of "street photography " emerged.

From the early work of Eugene Atget (who captured the streets of Paris from the 1890's to the 1920's) to Robert Frank, this type of image making has always been source of inspiration for me. In my humble opinion Street Photography is a topic that deserves not only a level of reverence, it also merits some dedicated learning and practice. 


In my latest blog post I have some observations on the form and the differences between Street Photography and Documentary photography.






WE ARE GOING TO NEW YORK CITY -  Street Photo Workshop Oct. 25, 2014


Speaking of Street Photography- Join us on 10/25 for a day in NYC.  We have put a tour package together with NH TOURS that feature some great locations and a chance to hone your street photo skills.


One of the locations on our tour may be unfamiliar, but an ideal location for capturing city scenes.  We will spend part of our day  on the HIGH LINE which is a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan's West Side. 


For complete details and registration go to the tour webpage



This is a view of the HIGH LINE which is a park that is a couple of stories above the streets of Manhattan.  Not only is it ideal for people watching it provides an very unique perspective on the streets below. This is just one of the stops on our day in NYC where we will be working on out=r street photo skills.




On Oct. 1, I have scheduled a social event for the members of the IMAGE MAKERS MEET-UP GROUP.  Join me for the PHOTOGRAPHERS NIGHT OUT at the Arena Sports Club in Nashua, NH.


This is a chance to hang out with our photo friends and enjoy an evening out. For details and registration go to the MEET-UP event page

Testimonial for Back to Health Muscular Therapy

Back to Health

Before I started seeing Patti at Back To Health, I was miserable. I'm not over exaggerating either. I had been struggling with TMJ for probably about a year and I had been to the oral surgeons. They all told me the same thing, "stay on a soft food diet." I tried that, but my TMJ wasn't getting any better, and to be honest, I was missing being able to eat steak. My TMJ was awful, it was to the point where I couldn't open my mouth wider than a quarter. Needless to say, trips to the dentist were miserable. My jaw was constantly clicking, and it was extremely painful for me to try to open my mouth. I began seeing a chiropractor, which helped a little bit at first, but he could only go as far as my neck, and the big problem area was obviously, my jaw. So he recommended that I make an appointment at Back To Health with Patti, because she could actually work on my jaw. So that's what I did, and I am so so very happy I did, because Patti changed everything for me. Not only is she kind and a great person to talk to, but she really knows what she's doing. It took some time for my jaw to start getting better, and there were some days when I felt like it never would. But Patti didn't give up, and she always told me not to either. And she was right. Gradually, my jaw started to respond to the muscular therapy Patti was giving me. It was great! I could eat some what solid foods again! Although I wasn't up for steak just yet, I could open my jaw wider, with much less pain. I always looked forward to my appointments with Patti because every time I left, I felt so much better. That and I enjoyed talking with her for the half hour we had! Thanks to Patti, my jaw freed up and has been great ever since. I am very happy to say I can once again eat whatever I want, including steak. So, if you're struggling with TMJ like I was, there is hope! Please make an appointment with Patti, she will fix you, I promise. I honestly don't know what I would have done if I never went to see her. She fixed my TMJ and I'm completely positive that she'll be able to fix yours too!
