A little house cleaning to start the year off

As mentioned in the our last 4 newsletters and again in direct emails to all of those on the 1ProCrew.Com Photo Production database, this past weekend I went through and deleted ALL of the user profiles that appeared to be abandoned, or those whose emails bounced back to us or elected to unsubscribe from our emails. All per the terms of service that everyone agrees to upon sign-up.

This makes it easier for all of those that take the time to create their user profiles to now be seen more often and show up higher in the search order.

In the future this process will be automated and users will be expected to interact with the 1ProCrew.Com database at least once every 6 months or their accounts will be deleted automatically.

For those that feel they were removed in error please feel free to re-add yourself to the photo production database.

Post hurricane sandy - Camping in NYC.

by JamesNYCNovember 1. 2012 08:35

It's been 3 days since the lights went out here in the East Village - NYC. due to a lighting strike that blew up a transformer at the Con Edison facility on 14 Street here on the east side of Manhattan. This means that most of us living below 25 street both east and west side are with out power, heat, hot water, and in some cases cell phone service. Cell service appears to be working for some networks; but for me I need to walk up town to 24th and Madison before I can get an ATT cell phone signal.  This is what we call "Camping in NYC."

Word is that we MIGHT get power back sometime on Monday next week

Last night I woke up in the middle of the night to find this bright that I'd never seen before lighting up the front of my building and the entire street. I went to the window to find that it was the full moon and a sky full of stars.  With out the lighting that typically pollutes the manhattan night sky I was looking at a pitch black sky full of star light and a bright moon on a scale that I have not seen since I was in the Kalahari dessert in South Africa 16 years ago.

For all of the negative impressions people have of NYC. I have to say that I feel safer walking around late at night on the pitch black streets of NYC. with nothing but a flash light; than I ever felt walking on the empty streets of Boston (when I lived there) at night even when those streets had street lights on. Truth is people in NYC. know how to live together and in most cases don't fuck with you unless you are causing them or others a problem.

I'v been lucky enough to be doing a studio management gig up on 28th street for the last 2 days which always me internet access, cell phone and laptop recharging and a hot shower and hot food.

Stuff people say

Any photographer who says he’s not a voyeur is either stupid or a liar. - Helmut Newton

 

"The Camera does not lie, Post Production and Publishers do". - James-ism 09/06/2013

 

"Papa, ... Music is your love, but Photography is your Religion." - Joya D. Hall-Sullivan | Age 10

 

"All photographs are accurate. None of them is the truth." - Richard Avedon - 1984

 

 "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work." - Thomas Alva Edison

 

"Any photographer who says he’s not a voyeur is either stupid or a liar." - Helmut Newton

 

"You don’t have to sort of enhance reality. There is nothing stranger than truth." - Annie Leibovitz

 

"When you find yourself beginning to feel a bond between yourself and the people you photograph, when you laugh and cry with their laughter and tears, you will know you are on the right track." - Weegee

 

" The camera is much more than a recording apparatus. It is a medium via which messages reach us from another world." - Orson Welles

 

"Some people's photography is an art. Not mine. Art is a dirty word in photography. All this fine art crap is killing it already." - Helmut Newton

 

"Our virtues and our failings are inseparable, like force and matter. When they separate, man is no more. " - Nikola Tesla

 

"I think all art is about control - the encounter between control and the uncontrollable." - Richard Avedon

 

"The first 10 000 shots are the worst." - Helmut Newton

 

“If I have any ‘message’ worth giving to a beginner it is that there are no short cuts in photography.” – Edward Weston

 

"Men often become what they believe themselves to be. If I believe I cannot do something, it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe I can, then I acquire the ability to do it even if I didn't have it in the beginning." - Mahatma Gandhi

 

"Ultimately success or failure in photographing people depends on the photographer's ability to understand his fellow man." - Edward Weston

 

"If you want reality take the bus." - David LaChapelle

 

"You don't take a photograph, you make it." - Ansel Adams

 

"When I have sex with someone I forget who I am. For a minute I even forget I’m human. It’s the same thing when I’m behind a camera. I forget I exist." - Robert Mapplethorpe

"I don’t think photography has anything remotely to do with the brain. It has to do with eye appeal." - Horst P. Horst

 

"Be yourself. I much prefer seeing something, even it is clumsy, that doesn't look like somebody else's work." - William Klein

 

"Avedon claims to have been the best photographer in the '60s - bullshit - Bob Richardson was - despite or because of being insane and strung out on drugs, I managed to do photographs that are considered iconic - being known as the 'photographer's photographer' means I lead and they follow - I'm broke and they are rich." - Bob Richardson

 

"If you're absent during my struggle, don't expect to be present during my success" - Will Smith

 

"Either take the lead or follow behind, just stay the fuck out of my way." - James Sullivan
