I feel very blessed and thankful for the success of my first photo exhibit! It was truly an honor to be part of Ripplemakers community of talented, creative and generous people who believe that no small act, deed or belief will go unnoticed. Ripplemakers Inc. dedicates its work to the notion that ordinary people *can* do extraordinary things and affect the people around them in a postive way, simply by being themselves.
Friends and family and random strangers came out last July 8 to the Community School of Music and the Arts, to support the film festival and photo exhibit. It was a great of evening of enjoying each other’s company, networking and idea exchange. In case you still want to see the photos on display, the exhibit will be up until the end of August. The Ripple films are available for viewing at www.ripplemakersinc.com
Again, my personal thanks go out to:
Bay Photo Lab – Shoutouts to Larry Abitbol and Sarah Bergeron for their support and providing the metal prints used in the exhibit. I have been a longtime client of Bay Photo since 2006 because they do consistently excellent prints and products, speedy turnaround and the friendliest customer service. Bay Photo has continued to be at the cornerstone of my business growth. (And no, I’m not being paid to say this!)
Community School of Music and Arts and their wonderful staff. Evy Schiffman, Linda Covello, Kyle Williams and John. The venue was the perfect setting for the exhibit and film festival. We couldn’t have asked for a better place to host, and look forward to more collaborative events in the future.
For photography coverage — Claudia Akers, Kinsley Wong and Kyo Suayan. For the gorgeous floral arrangements, thank you Jeeryn Dang of Tanjeeryn Designs. My hair and make-up was graciously done by my talented friend Joey Cheung of JBeautique. Thanks to my PR guy, David Peterkofsky for editing the media collateral and to advertising whiz Charmaine David of IWGroup for helping create some buzz.
To all my muses Bill Belew and Maya, Mahin, Alice and Daniel for inspiring me to create those images. It was truly an honor for me.
And most especially, to my partner-in-crime Carol Gancia of Ripplemakers for inviting me to be part of her vision for Ripple.
