OMG! These photographers are floating on air!

Adam Lerner June 9, 2014 Comments Off

I went on an incredible trip to Israel with a group of amazing photographers thanks to “Vibe Israel” and Kinetis. Each photographer was handpicked from New York to Australia and in-between, including me! Beside my buddy Jared Polin, aka FroKnowsPhoto, we were with Mike Kelley, Simon Pollock, Rebecca Litchfield and Benjamin Von Wong. Each of these folks are amazing photographers and have very unique styles and specialities. I can say that I learned so much from all of them and felt incredibly inspired by their work.

FroKnowsMovies: Please give it a shot!!!

Jared Polin June 8, 2014 Comments Off

Welcome to FroKnowsMovies staring Jared Polin (the FRO) and Todd Wolfe (the Todd). where our goal is to just say it like it is when it comes to new movies, old movies and future movies, trailers and more. Fun is the name of the game and we hope you enjoy the show.

Each week we will be reviewing a different movie either one that is in the theaters or one that is new at home. There will be different segments from “home flickr” to “coming soon” and much much more.

All I ask is that you give it a shot, if you enjoy movies I think you just might enjoy the show.

We really have a great time making these videos. To be honest it is a great way for me to relax my mind and give it a break from the Photo World. I have found that these movie episodes have helped me focus on the photo side even more.

Don’t Make These Mistakes In Your “About” Section: You May Scare The Client Away

Jared Polin June 6, 2014 Comments Off

In my latest Rapid Fire Squarespace Critique I take a look at Sean Huolihan’s website and give it my classic style critique. But instead of rehashing everything I said in the video, I want to jump right to the meat of this critique, the About Section.

  • The discussion about the About Me section starts at 8:43 of the video above.

I am sure you have read a ton of about sections all across the internet. The about section is your chance to sell yourself to the clients you are going after. There are some mistakes that you make in this section that could scare away the client and leaving you wondering why.

This is what I love about doing these website critiques. I didn’t set out to give a tutorial on how to word your about section but this website led me down that path.

Let’s take a look at his about page. The first thing I see is a photo of a guy dressed very nicely with mixed drink in his hand. First things first this doesn’t scream “hey look at me, I’m a professional photographer”. More one what I would put there in a few sentences.

One thing I didn’t point out in the video is that Sean is the person speaking while he is writing. It’s not written in third person which I think comes across not very human. I like that he says “Hello I’m Sean”.
