The Trick to Being Yourself When You FEAR Video Marketing

If you’re terrified to be in front of the camera, you’re not alone – statistics show that 75-percent of individuals suffer from speech anxiety.

Are You Ready to Welcome Summer Into Your Home?

The summer solstice happens today officially starting my favorite season in the U.S., summer, which means we’re spending more time outdoors – gardening in the yard, jumping in the pool, firing up the barbecue, dining al fresco and soaking up the summer sun.

Think summer barbecues, dining […]

Grab your camera and take a moment to explore the outdoors for Nature Photography Day on June 15th. Head to the backyard, park, or another place close to take a walk, hike, or ride a bike and capture Mother Nature at her finest.  This day was designated by The North American Nature Photography Association (NANPA) to promote the enjoyment of nature photography and to explain how images have been used to advance the cause of conservation and protect plants, wildlife, and landscapes locally and worldwide.
