Event Details:

The “Recycled Runway, Vintage Trunk Show and Tea Dance” will start at 4PM on Sunday January 18th, outside the Cornell Musuem of Art opening with the Recycled Runway Show of designer couture made from all recycled / repurposed materials shown on gorgeous models. After the Recycled Runway the Vintage Trunk Show and Tea Dance will kick off inside the museum. Local consigment shops and vintage designers will be showing and selling their collections while the Tea Dance with cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and one of the hottest DJs will be shaking things up downstairs.

“As an eco-friendly salon we wanted to present something for fashion week to support our message that fashion and beauty can be environmentally concious while still being gorgeous. We loved the idea of a ‘Recycled Runway & Vintage Trunk Show’ as a platform for eco-chic beauty and vintage couture – something not normally represented during fashion week. It’s a great opportunity to highlight the recyled and vintage fashion from the local shops, while raising money for the Delray Beach Center for the Arts – an organization that truly enriches our community. A BIG Thank you to the Delray Beach DDA for putting together such an amazing Fashion Week every year – we are honored to be a part of it!” – Janine Shuman (NAKeD Hair Salon & More).

Fitness Photos with The Yachtie Glow – www.4thavephoto.com

Angela Orecchio is a fitness fanatic, this was very clear when we met for her first photo shoot with 4thavephoto.com…  I got the call on an early Saturday morning in Fort Lauderdale “i’m going to be a few minutes late, I just gave to get some fruit before we start!”

Angela lives and breath fitness and well being,  The Yachtie Glow is dedicated to inspiring other yacht crew and world travelers to become the healthiest, fittest and happiest version of themselves.

Our brief was to create images of Angela in action for her blog at http://www.angelaorecchio.com we think we did the trick, in fact 2 of her photos are on display at our Delray Beach studio.

Beth and Ted – Boca Raton Wedding.

Beth and Ted are great friends of our, it’s always a great compliment to be asked to photograph a friends wedding!  The day was perfect at the Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club, Boca Raton.  A little shade in the Florida sunshine and a gentle breeze to cool the family and guests.

A couple of week before they posed for a portrait session, Ted & Beth Print 1-01we wanted to come up with something a little humorous. Why not pull off something that everybody will recognize, a movie poster!  ‘Star Wars’?  Nope, ‘Gone with the Wind’? Too cheesy…  How about pretty woman?!  This is what we came up with, a pretty good portrait for the wedding, and memory for the future.

The wedding was a great affair, great food and dancing.  Ted strutting his stuff on the dane floor with Beth Looking like an excited school girl having the time of her life at the best path of her life, we loved it.

How to be a fashion model – Model Photography

 

“I want to see if I can make some money modeling”…  Gary McComack came to us 4 months ago with this question and we got to work.  There are some rules that you need to follow and the rest we threw out.  I believe that the point of a fine portrait  photograph is to evoke an emotion, be that a smile or a grimace either suits me as long as they get noticed.

So we set about trying to get Gary noticed, and for all the right reasons.  Gary McCormack is 6ft tall and a very good looking guy, this helps!  Have a look at his portfolio, leave a comment and let us know what you think.

As an after-note, Gary has been working in various sportswear shoots and is currently working with Mega Models in Miami.

Staff Portraits – Domain Holdings Inc. Delray Beach.

Can you take some photographs of the staff?  Can you do something better than this?  They sent me someportraits that looked like they’ve been taken on a camera phone 5 years ago… with a bright blue background.   “I’ll see what I can do”

We set up a studio in the Domian Holdings offices in downtown delray beach and got to work.  Setting up in the offices enable the company to keep working and have their shots taken with the least amount of interruption to the business.

We love their photographs, they love their photographs, we all win!

Watch the birdie! Portrait Photography

You need a portrait and there’s not getting away from it.  I would say that 95% of us  are worried about what we look like in front of the camera, this is the photo that the world is going to see, the one on the website and business cards.

Relax, relax, relax…  Take some time, jump on the spot, put on some music are some of the things we do in the studio.  Our portraits take a little longer than most, we wait for the moment when you smile or laugh and catch you just at the right time.  Take a look at some of our shots here and be brave, take a deep breath and pick up the phone for a booking.

And remember… Shoulders back, chin on the shelf and say Thursday  🙂

I don’t look, I don’t act, I don’t feel… I don’t care about 60!

You can hear them… All over the country!

I DON”T WANT TO BE 60 YEARS OLD!

Luz Marleny Leeds is here to offer you a helping hand and she wrote a book about her experiences on reaching this milestone in life.  4th Avenue photography were commissioned to provide the photographs for this wonderful book.

Filled with fun, laugh-out-loud anecdotes, easy to follow tips and helpful hints, this bilingual book (both English and Spanish versions can be found within its pages) takes the reader through a journey of personal improvement that allows her to make the most of her hair, face, body and spirit. Once you read it you’ll say, as Luz does: I don’t care about my age! I feel like a million bucks.

You can buy the book in hardcopy or for your nifty kindle on Amazon.com
