Hello everybody,
I just put up a brand new website. I made it in Mac's Iweb. This site is separate from the site you all know.
This site talks about portraiture only. I do not mention weddings, or Bar-Mitzvahs or any type of party photography.
It is still a work in progress. I will be adding more photos, slide shows, and enhancements as  time goes on.
Please pass the word to near and far tell all the world to check out the new site.
The site is www.normanscottportraits.com.
You must put in the www for it to work properly.
Thanks and my regards to all,

Savanah and her baby brother Cole what a team

I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph Shannon and Dom's children in my studio.
2 year old  Savanah went from shy to magnificent and Cole's age is measured right now in weeks. He didn't do much except look great.
I hope you enjoy these images as much as I do.

New 4X6 advertising card

Hello folks,
I just finished the design of a new advertising counter piece. I think it looks great. I hope every one gets the picture ha ha.

Early this morning 8:00 AM which is very early for me Judy and I went to the Apple store at Freehold mall. We took a 2 hour seminar on the new IPhone 4. Judy read in the New York Times technology section that Apple will be making the IPhone for Verizon in January. We decided to check out it's features. The phone is a magnificent tool. Great print very easy to read. And there are zillions of aps for it.
If it come s to Verizon I think we will be making a purchase.

Always more to learn

As everybody knows today's world is computers. And what runs computers? Software. This past Friday I was in Manhattan for an Adobe Photoshop CS5 seminar. It was sponsored by NAPP which is the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. Scott Kelby was one of the speakers along with Matt Klokowski, RC Concepion, Corey Barker and others. There were a least a thousand people attending. The line to enter stretched the length of 34th street from 8th Ave to 9th.
The information to be learned is staggering.

On Sunday I was in Manhattan once again to attend a LIghtroom seminar presented by Adobe and given by Tom Hogarty the Adobe Lightroom project manager. The seminar was at Adorama in there 5th floor presentation room.
Once again I was dazzled by the information and more importantly what I can accomplish with and to my photographs. Amazing simply amazing.
After the Sunday seminar I walked up to 25 street and did some flea marketing.
It was the Gay rights parade on Sunday, the parade route is from 36 ST. to the village on 5th Ave.
Walking up to the 25 St. flea market I walked along 5th Ave, the amount of people on the street as well as the diversity of the marchers was just fantastic.
The marchers were dressed in as many outlandish, funny, interesting costumes as you can imagine.
There were parade floats from all over the world and I even saw a giant Macy's float.

I stay up on all the technology this is something that must be done.

A beautiful Albanian wedding Saranda and Amon


Yesterday I had the wonderful opportunity to photography for my great friend and fantastic videographer Bo. He asked me to photography a relative of his. 

Albanian weddings are very different from an American wedding. There is a separate reception just for the bride and her family and friends. 
The bride wears a beautiful gown but will not be actually getting married until July 5th where the wedding will take place in Albania.

I take must of the portraits before the reception then the bride is lead to into the reception area by one of her brothers and another family member. Once at the reception she dances traditional Albanian dance and then by custom she is to remain standing at the head table for most of the reception. She sits down just for a while to eat. The groom does come to the reception, in my case his family is composed of just his two sisters. 

Except for some more traditional dancing the groom does not interact with the bride.
After the reception just the bride and groom and myself went to the park for some portraits we had fun.
Because the groom only speaks Albanian I needed to use plenty of had gestures.
Take a look at the photos for a small glimpse into an Albanian wedding

Look what I found at the Flea Market

I am a flea Market junkie. I never know what will turn up. I was perusing the Englishtown flea market one weekend. I noticed this strange looking chair sitting on top of the cab to a big pick-up truck.
I meandered over towards it and immediately thought (I had never seen anything like it,  it would be great and work great in the studio). It was relatively inexpensive but I did not purchase it right away.
I did my flea market thing and walked all around. Because the chair was so high up it could be seen from all over the market. I kept checking it was still there. Finally I was ready for home this chair was weighing on my mind. I decided you have to buy one of a kind things when you see them or so long item.
I bought it and  brought it to Marty the upholsterer at Englishtown in the blue building.  He did a great job and a great price. I am going to use this for kids, pets, brides, it is perfect.
Take a look.
See ya soon,
Norm
