New If we live videos

I’m happy to present the New If we live videos I created for the songs “Jenny make ’em clap” and “free is we”, these videos were made with love for the “If we live” project.

Using images to improve your Facebook profile

Well, It’s double feature for me this month.
My Facebook profile images are at the top of Janine Warner‘s article, appearing this month (March 2014) on Photoshop user magazine and on layersmagazine.com.

The article titled “Attracting Friends with a Fabulous Facebook Design” came out a couple of weeks ago, You can read it here.

I was very happy to hear from Janine Warner when she contacted me. Janine told me she wanted to feature some versions of my Facebook profile, as her main example in a few publications, to show how professional photographers can use their Facebook profile.

I hardly ever give myself a tap on the shoulder, but It’s always fun to hear other people’s appreciation of what I do.
Here are a few excerpts from my messaging with Janine, in her own words:

…”My coauthor and I are writing you because we think your Facebook page design is awesome/fabulous/makes us jealous, and we want to feature you in a new book that we are writing”…

…”to showcase your profile as a shining example of all that is good, true and right about the social web… or at least a great example of a Facebook design.”

…”With your permission, we’ll publish a screenshot of the Cover design area of your profile in full color and use it to call more attention to the wonderful work that you’ve done”…

…”Well you are certainly a great example. I was just checking again and we actually used two shots of your covers to show that a photographer like you can change images regularly to showcase your talent. Thanks for being such a great example”…

…”You’re welcome to say you’ll be featured in “Social Media Design For Dummies” , and you can throw in that we think you’re very talented!”…

Janine Warner’s best-selling books and videos about the Internet have won her an international following and earned her speaking and consulting engagements around the world. She’s the creator of DigitalFamily.com, an interactive design and training agency that offers web and mobile design, content strategy, and … more…

You can learn and get many web and social design tips on Janine’s site, such as, What size should you make your Facebook photos?
You can’t find a better teacher.

The excellant “Social Media Design For Dummies”
Is now available! I’m featured on pages 88 and 89..

A wonderful lecture about creativity by John Cleese

Creativity and creative thinking is a subject I’m always exploring.

I was happy to hear Cleese mentioning Edward de Bono (in one of his creativity thinking  videos that was published and removed from youtube many times) , I began to find interest in De Bono’s writings about creative thinking when I was still a photographer’s assistant in training.
