    Using Photographs in Your Marketing Mix

    in Management

    I'm a massive fan of photography. If I win the lottery (I don't play!) I'm off to the south of France with the woofs and my Canon 5D III to potter around. 

    But as I work in the marketing industry I get to think quite a lot about photographs. In this show I look at how photographs are a key aspect of your marketing mix. It's not just about the images you use on your website; it's also the stories you tell about your company on social media.

    Dr. Elisa Medhus on My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven

    in Spirituality

    Is there life after death? Is there proof of the soul?

    Elisa Medhus, a physician and mother of five, received the news any mother could receive. Her 20-year-old son, Erik, committed suicide by taking a .45 caliber handgun and shooting himself in the head in their home. Erik was bipolar.

    As a woman of science and skeptical about the soul's survival after death, she began to question her beliefs when inexplicable events began to happen shortly after Erik's death. Erik began to communicate with family, friends and blog members.  After devouring various books on quantum physics explaining the science behind spirituality, her beliefs began to shift. She became a believer. Now, she channels Erik through renowned medium Jamie Butler, asking him questions about death, the afterlife and so much more. 

    As her blog members join her in this journey toward spiritual understanding, Erik continues to offer not only his insight as an insider on the other side, but also adds some comic relief with his mischievous pranks. She shares her journey in her first book, My Son and the Afterlife: Conversations from the Other Side. Now, Erik has authored his own book, My Life After Death: A Memoir from Heaven. (see Orb photographs attached below taken by Dr. Medhus' daughter.)

    In addition to her two books about Erik, Dr. Medhus is also the author of three award-winning parenting books, Raising Children Who Think for Themselves, Hearing is Believing, and Raising Everyday Heroes.

    Nancy Lee Andrews ,New Book , Ringo Starr, Modeling, Photography and much more!

    in Pop Culture

    Former Ford model turned international photographer Nancy Lee Andrews spent her early educational days, as she refers to them, in front of the camera.   She became more interested in clicking the shutter rather than being the subject.  One day while working for Milton Green and asking too many questions about photography,  he handed her a camera and showed her how to load film and told her to go out and shoot and bring the film back.  That was the beginning of a life long love affair with the camera.

    A Dose of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a coffee table book, reveals the intimate access to music royalty that was accorded to Nancy Lee Andrews while she was engaged to Ringo Starr for six years.  The photographs, beginning in 1970, present assorted iconic images that have become an historical imprint of that era.  Among legendary names pictured in this compilation besides Ringo are John Lennon, George Harrison, Keith Moon, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton and Gregg Allman, to name a few.  Currently, her photographs can be seen for the cover of Billy Ray Cyrus memoir, Hillbilly Heart, for Amazon.

Walker is a filmmaker who spent seven years collecting historic photographs, visiting African-American historic sites in New Jersey and neighboring states, and researching journey to freedom: the African-American experience in New Jersey, 1638-1931, a project which includes a book, an educational cd-rom and an inspirational music cd.

    His latest project is a documentary that is focused on the contributions of African American women during World War II.  Lawrence indicated that "this documentary is a result of my interest in the subject of African-American women who served in the military during world war II.  I recognized the experiences these women shared were different from those of African-American men and/or Euro-American women and men."  This is a very special tribute to the appreciation of our nation for those who served in the armed forces.

    An Artist Speaks Season 4 Episode 26 with Guest Artist Zina Zinchik

    in Art

    Hear artist Zina Zinchik discuss and describe her process in creating her Frozen Collectio of botanical photographs with host Michael Harris.  Zina Zinchik (Seletskaya) became interested in the fine arts in her early childhood, Zina continued to pursue her passion for photography by enrolling into countless art classes and participating in workshops with globally accomplished photographers.  Zina's work has already found homes in many private collections around the world.  “The “Frozen spring” collection was inspired by the arctic vortex visiting New York City this past winter. The artistic influence behind this flower imagery stems from my deep appreciation for the simple, the untainted and the unadulterated beauty found in nature and the logistic restrictions influenced by weather. These captured flowers exemplify growth and renewal struggling from under the freezing effects of global warming.  I’m looking at the world through my lens and loving every minute of it.”

    Walter Newkirk: memoraBEALEia Author

    in Entertainment

    Walter Newkirk, author, joins the show tonight to talk about his books!

    memoraBEALEia : A Private Scrapbook about Edie Beale of Grey Gardens celebrates and pays tribute to Edith "Little Edie" Bouvier Beale. Miss Beale was the first cousin of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and is best known for her participation in the famous documentary Grey Gardens (1976).  In the 1970s, Edie Beale and her mother Edith Bouvier Beale -- the respective cousin and aunt of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis - former society ladies - were living in a cat-infested, filthy, crumbling estate called Grey Gardens in East Hampton. The interview for the Rutgers newspaper was conducted shortly after the release of the film. Newkirk and Beale kept in touch for several years, by phone and by mail. After the estate was sold and her mother died, Beale moved to New York ( from 1980-1983) and the author escorted her to luncheons, parties and special events. She later moved to Florida, and died in January 2002. memoraBEALEia contains never-before-seen photographs of Edie Beale and Grey Gardens, the Rutgers Targum interview along with a few other obscure newspaper clippings, reproductions of letters written by Little Edie (along with cards she created), and art inspired by Grey Gardens. 

    Buy Walter's books on the Rated G Radio Superstar's Swag page on Amazon here!

    At 7:45 we'll be joined by filmmaker Jill Salvino talking about her indie film project "Between The Shades."

  • Karen Otto and Lance Selgo Staging & Photo Styling, The Big Pictureold

    in Real Estate

    Staging and photography go hand in hand not only with the homes you stage but with your brand! The big picture is that with access to the Internet, a prospective homebuyer does not need to leave the comfort of their home to decide whether or not to see a property. This means the first showing of a property will most likely take place online. With over 90% of buyers shopping online first for everything, a home for sale needs to be ready for its online debut. Time-strapped homebuyers often make a decision right at their computer screen whether the house is worth getting in the car or plane to see. Great photos are one of the most important tools today’s seller has in getting their house seen and sold. There is never a second chance to make a first impression. Home staging and photography work in tandem for making the best first impression. Whether online through amazing photos or in person as the buyer walks up to the door, a staged home presents better online in photographs as well as in person.

    Exploring Jordan, Art of Dr. Seuss, Ken Burns

    in Travel

    Although the country of Jordan is surrounded by "noisey neighbors" it is the safest country in the Middle East because of the Swiss-like neutrality it has maintained.  The spirit of hospitality that is ingrained in the Bedouin culture, which accounts for 40% of Jordan's population, transcends throughout the country.  Janine Jervis with Visit Jordan describes Jordan as an open-air museum because of its voluminous history and archaeological treasures but she tells us that Jordan is also cosmopolitan and diverse in its tourism offerings.

    Theodor (Ted)  Seuss Geisel, best known as Dr. Seuss, wore many hats beyond a childrens book author and illustrator.  He was also a social commentator and his work tackled many issues like racial inequality and the environment.  Dr. Seuss also enjoyed creating "unorthodox" taxidermy and part of his "secret art" series poked fun at socialites. We will explore the colorful life of Ted Geisel with curator of The Art of Dr. Seuss, Bill Dreyer.

    Filmmaker Ken Burns has shared a vareity of America's history through his popular documentary films, including:  Baseball (1994); The Central Park Five (2013); The Civil War (1990); and The Roosevelts (2014).  His style of filmmaking incorporates archival footage and photographs to help craft America's stories.  As part of our "Best Of" interviews, we have gone into our archives to share our 2009 interview with Ken Burns and his film The National Parks: America's Best Idea.
