ALI Photographer, Joe Mozer, meets BMFAs Photography Department!

Sep 18, 2017

Our art department was recently invited to a one-of-a-kind day, sponsored by Hasselblad Bron!  We were invited to attend a studio tour and demonstration of Hasselblad camera systems and Broncolor lighting setups at The Boston Museum of Fine Arts.

We sent our imaging specialist, Joe, to Boston to enjoy this amazing opportunity. 

Led by John Woolf, Digital Systems Manager, BMFA and Hasselblad representatives, the tour consisted of two studios, one for 3D capture and the other for 2 dimensional objects. Much of the day was spent in the latter, reviewing works on paper, textiles and paintings; as well as, demonstrating the large motorized copy stand and large wall mounted easel for paintings.

The special invite from Hasselblad came after Art Licensing’s purchase of a new H6D-50c camera for our own studio. This extraordinary 50-megapixel camera is perfect for capturing high quality digital images of our artists’ original paintings and drawings, as well as fantastic product shots featuring their work applied to the myriad of products we provide licensing for!

“The BMFA tour was awesome,” says Joe. “I was impressed with the level of accomplishment and big name schools and museums that most of the other tour members were from. I felt a little out of my league at first, but quickly came to realize that we are doing the same things and encountering the same challenges.”

 

“After lunch, we got to see some of the Photography Department’s work on ancient small objects – things like coins and gems; How to capture fine detail when a sculpture is on the facet of a ring! It was fascinating to be able to see their problems and solutions to a variety of photographic situations. All in all, it was a great time and I felt honored to be able to get a glimpse of how things work behind the scenes at such a prestigious center of art and culture.”

Special thanks to BMFA and Hasselblad for the invitation to such an inspiring event!

Aug 25, 2015

We are excited to announce that our artist, Susan Barmon, has been selected to be part of the Black and White Collection Book that SeeMe puts out. This book, displays work from photographers representing over 191 different countries around the world!

Susan has been telling stories through photographic portraiture most of her adult life. She says:  “I like the story these little cowboys tell. Their portraits personify the lives they live and the character they are developing. “The Littlest Cowboys” has been a rewarding series. Along with the photographs, I came away from it with lifelong friends and a respect for those, of any age, who pursue the sport… “The Littlest Cowboys, captures a unique slice of Americana---a lifestyle that lives the sport. The children’s rodeo is brimming with a value system we associate with the best of our American heritage: courage, competition, physical stamina, triumph, defeat and sportsmanship.”

Net proceeds from the sales of these books will benefit the Pencils of Promise charity. This organization works to build schools in developing nations. They do not just build a school and move on, they monitor and evaluate the schools after they are constructed. Thus far, every school they’ve opened is fully operational and educating students daily!

The 2014 PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo

Nov 04, 2014

On Halloween, most of the ALI family was in VT eating yummy treats and hanging out with our trick-or-treaters (in between doing deals, of course). Joe, from our art department, spent Halloween in NYC for the PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo. This year, his treats came in the form of photography knowledge.

The PhotoPlus Conference + Expo was the perfect show for Joe to attend, as he is our resident photographer and imaging specialist. This show has become the largest photography and imaging show in North America! Over 22,000 professional photographers and enthusiasts from around the world attend this event. Attendees could choose from over 80 seminars, offering the ultimate experience in photography, filmmaking and digital imaging. Joe saw a lot of inspiring photography, filmmaking and imaging products- from image capture and color management to retouching and storage. There were even little theaters at the show that offered free 30 minute educational seminars all three days.

Joe came home with a ton of new information about photography. He is excited because he will be able to pass this knowledge onto our artists. To see photos from his journey, take a look at the PhotoPlus album on our facebook.
