Private Galleries

Wow, I love the capabilities Photoshelter has. Photoshelter is what I am using for my photography website, which is scheduled to launch at the end of July.

Last month I did a photo-shoot in Orlando, Florida with a friend. While back in New York, I was able to post her portraits in a private gallery on my Photoshelter site where only she can view them.

The best part is she can rate each portrait using a 5 star system, as well as post comments on individual portraits. I can post my star ratings independent of hers. The Matrix Rating button allows us to compare both of our ratings for each portrait side by side.

This feature, along with many others, makes Photoshelter a great site for photographers.

About the “Shooting the Bronx” photo exhibit

For Bronx Week, Puerto Rico Sun Communications, which publishes the Bronx Latino lifestyle blog at www.bronxlatino.blogspot.com, joined forces with the NetWorks Organization to curate a Bronx-themed photo exhibit, showcasing the work of photographers with Bronx ties.

Participating photographers are:

David Greene

Elena "Mamarazzi" Marrero

Ken Carozza

Mario Burger

Joseph Dominick

Eileen McNamee

Jonathan C. Perea

Clarisel Gonzalez (curator)

Participating photographers are members of the Bronx Latino photo group, the Bronx photo group or the NYC Collective of the Puerto Rican Photographic Society.

Most of the participating photographers regularly document the Bronx, capturing the diversity of our borough from our people to our places to our events. The Bronx plays a role in their art of photography. The Bronx is a subject, setting, backdrop, or even an inspiration.

Puerto Rico Sun Communications is a community-minded independent multimedia social entrepreneurship aimed at informing, empowering and building community. Bronx Latino is a project of Puerto Rico Sun Communications.

New Portraits

I really love close-ups and portraits. I never imagined I would do Portrait Photography but I find it so enjoyable and fun, especially when taking them outdoors.

My photography website is still under construction. However, in the meantime, you can enjoy some new portraits on Flickr here.
