Nancy has been a commercial photographer for over forty years. After working out of New York City for 25 years she now works out of her Boca Raton, Florida studio.

Her book “Simply China” was released as a large coffee table art book with 289 pages of images with text in Chinese and English. Nancy’s travels to Myanmar (Burma) also captured her imagination, recently.  Nancy was made a Nikon Legend in 2001. Teaching has always been a part of Nancy’s life and she holds one to one workshops in Florida all year long. Stock photography also is a big part of Nancy’s photography and she is continually adding people/lifestyle and travel images to Getty Images, her stock agency. www.nancybrown.com

 

JENNA HUTTUTLA

Jenna Huttula picked up her first 35mm camera on a backpacking trip through Europe at the age of 13, and hasn’t put it down yet. After ten years as a professional portrait photographer on the Treasure Coast, she and her family traveled to Nicaragua as missionary photographers. In the rural villages they photographed families, most who had never been photographed before. Jenna Huttula’s projects have allowed her to travel to remote terrain trough exotic rainforests and the base of active volcanos. She says, “Beauty surrounds us, whether it’s in an impoverished county or our own backyard and photography allows me to immortalize an instant that can be cherished for a lifetime”.

 

LOUIS JAWITZ

 

Louis Jawitz began his life-long love affair with photography while in the US Navy. Back in civilian life, he quickly advanced his career shooting high profile campaigns for top tier advertising agencies, Fortune 500 clients, and travel and editorial assignments for internationally recognized corporations and publications.  Jawitz’s assignments and travels gave him great opportunities to shoot his personal work, primarily fine art, nature and scenic images. His photographic career, created while working out of his iconic New York City studio, included advertising work for many notable clients including Grey Advertising, Nikon, Pfizer, GM, Subaru, and American Airlines.  His editorial and assignment work has appeared in numerous magazines and publications including Nikon World, Popular Mechanics, Shutterbug, and Popular Photography+ Imaging. Mr. Jawitz’s work has been shown in Florida at the Nathan D. Rosen Museum Gallery, Port St. Lucie Civic Center Art Gallery, Lake Worth Art League, Jonathan Dickenson State Park, and the Coral Springs Museum of Art.

 

 

DON LACY

Don Lacy is a nature and wildlife photographer who moved to the Jupiter area from the suburbs outside of Philadelphia over twenty years ago. He is a self-taught photographer who has been capturing the natural beauty of the world around him for the past 10 years.

His work can be seen at witnessnature.net.

JANE SAULL

Please take a thought provoking journey into the Underwater Realm and gain an increased awareness of our precious natural resources. “Underwater photography allows me the opportunity to educate and thus protect our most valuable resource, the oceans of the world. My artistic mission is to present and reflect on the diverse colors and textures of our underwater space. I concentrate on exploring the varied underwater species in a world less populated by humans. The Underwater Realm challenges the eye and brain to perceive the familiar and unfamiliar in extraordinary ways and constantly inspires me and reinforces the miracle of synergy and harmony. My photography has been featured in national publications and awarded on local, state, national and international levels. I hold the Master of Science Degree in Communication Disorders as well as the Master of Education Degree in Guidance and Counseling”.   www.janesaullphotography.com

BARRY SCHEIN

Barry is an award winning commercial photographer, educator and photo editor. During his career he has created photography for many nationally branded Fortune 500 companies and their advertising agencies. He received an EMMY award for his work at NBC TV in New York and an Eastman Kodak Professional Photographers award. Both Nikon and the international journal Graphis have recognized his work. Barry’s photographs have been displayed at Nikon House in New York City, the Kodak Pavilion at Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center as well as numerous group shows in South Florida and is represented in a number of private collections.

 

 

BARRY SEIDMAN

Barry Seidman grew up in New York’s fast-paced advertising business establishing him as one of the top advertising print media photographers in the country. He works for the top international brands. Seidman now devotes his time to fine art photography, which is enthusiastically collected around the world. “My work”, Seidman says, “is more akin to a painter in a studio than a photographer making snapshots. I choose not to go out into the world and bring back what I’ve seen, but to start with a concept, pre-visualizing, executing and highlighting what I see and how I see it. The finished work is then presented larger than life, inviting the viewer to walk in the landscape of my mind’s eye. My images then create an illusion of simplicity. The exploration of my ideas is done in photographic series. At times inspiration is illusive, but then there it is – like magic – in the revelation of imagined images.”

 

 

THOMAS WINTER

Thomas Winter is a Florida Commercial Photographer specializing in Corporate and Industrial Photography. Tom creates compelling photography for business communications and advertising. His unique images and editorial style help tell a story, capture a moment and deliver a message. Tom’s business background and corporate experience give him a unique perspective that enhances and informs his work. He understands the importance of delivering value and being part of a creative team. His landscapes are part of his ongoing personal work that take him away from his commercial routine.

Basketry/Ceramic Vessel by Bonnie Bruner

 

 

Bonnie Brunner uses her talents to make unique basketry.  She patiently hand weaves naturally dyed colorful strands of sea grape vines, twigs, and twine which are sometimes combined with hand-built ceramic bases.  Each vessel has a personalized look, as her artistry resembles the waves of the mighty white-tipped ocean crashing against the hot sandy beach. They will make quite a statement sitting in your cottage by the sea.

Fused Glass Fish by Betty Wilson

 

Ocean creatures and the hues of neon colored tropical fish come to life within the alluring fused glass created by artist Betty Wilson. The rays of natural light reflect and bounce off the different species of fish she creates with glass.

 

 

Ebba Tinwin wraps beautiful sea glass with wire to create gorgeous jewelry for that special someone (and yourself). She selects the shards of sea glass that have been tossed to the shores of the ocean through the rough waves. She selects her palette of colors and choice of blues, greens, whites, golds, and turquoise and then polishes each one before wrapped in wires of silver and gold.

 

 

 

 

Dr. Herbert Brosky hand carves tropical birds out of found pieces of wood. His amazing talents of come to life in his realistic carvings. A retired dentist, he uses his intricate dental tools to hand carve the details of his artistic birds. He then delicately paints each one to make them come to life. His flamingo wears a beautiful coat of pink and stands perched on stilt legs, while the sea gull’s underbelly shows as if you are standing on the ocean pier watching them fly away. The sand piper sits on a rock of driftwood aged from the salt of the ocean.

She also teaches the camera-less technique and Photoshop for photographers.

Barry Seidman Shares “A Feast for the Eyes” at Cultural Council of Palm Beach County Gallery

It’s a perfect match! “Feast for the Eyes” art/photo series by renown fine art photographer, Barry Seidman, is a tribute to local Florida farmers and farmers’ markets. Foodies and photo enthusiasts love the “portraits” of vegetables and the suggestive poses and relationships between them. Seidman finds his subjects at Palm Beach County Greenmarkets and has developed a deep appreciation for the farmers who take pride in the beauty of their produce. Currently being exhibited in Swifty’s Restaurant in New York, it attracted the attention of notables in the industry including Eric Ripert and Donatella Arpaia, who attended Barry’s opening in Chelsea this past fall. The series will be making its debut in Florida at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County March 21 to April 18. The private opening is March 19 for VIPs.  The Rickie Report shares the details and a few sneak peeks.

Renowned, still life photographer Barry Seidman exhibited his latest series, “Feast for the Eyes” at Swifty’s Restaurant located in New York City. This show followed the recent successful debut of Seidman’s intriguing photographic series at the Gallery at Fotocare, in Chelsea, which dazzled photography enthusiasts as well as food world luminaries.  The series will be making its debut in Florida at the Cultural Council of Palm Beach County March 21 to April 18.

"Daikon Radish" by Barry Seidman

“Daikon Radish” by Barry Seidman

 

Seidman tells The Rickie Report, “Inspiration is sometimes so illusive, but then there it is – like magic – in the splendor of nature!  ‘Feast for the Eyes’ took me on a voyage through the voluptuous shapes, pure colors and beautiful textures found at local greenmarkets. When you take the time to examine freshly harvested fruits and vegetables, they are extraordinary. They look different, feel different and taste better than the store-bought ordinary variety”.  

 

 

“Visiting greenmarkets became an obsession. While I would study the produce with my eyes, my wife would study with her taste buds. Fortunately, she is a gourmet cook, so my feast for the eyes also became a feast for the palate.  As I study and choreograph my subjects, I find sensuous curves, hidden personalities and relationships of form: some are beautiful, some are strange, but all unique.  With this series, I hope to bring attention and appreciation to those who plant, grow, harvest and make these feasts for the eyes available to us at our local greenmarkets and farms”.

 

 

Recognized as one of the top, still-life photographers in the country, Seidman continues to exhibit his fine art photography in numerous, one-man, fine art shows in New York City and South Florida and has contributed to numerous group shows.

 

 

"Brown Eggplant" by Barry Seidman

“Brown Eggplant” by Barry Seidman

 

Seidman’s subjects became extraordinarily alive. In this series, Seidman creates relationships between his subjects …sensuous, sexy and voluptuous … bringing them to life.

 

 

"Tall Mushroom" by Barry Seidman

Barry Seidman grew up in New York’s fast-paced advertising business establishing him as one of the top advertising print media photographers in the country. He specialized in still-life photography and worked for the top major brands in the world, eventually expanding his work to include celebrity photography and directing television commercials. Recognition for his work includes every possible industry award including Clios, Tellys, Addys and the Art Directors Club Award.

 

 

Seidman then started to devote his time to fine art photography, using his vast techniques and knowledge of lighting and design as a foundation. This led to various solo and group exhibitions all while still connected to the advertising business.

A few years ago, Seidman, and long-time business partner and wife, Mary Ann Kurasz, relocated to Palm Beach Gardens, Florida where he built a studio to focus on his fine art work. He also maintains a studio presence in New York where he continues to shoot for advertising clients.  Seidman’s fine art exhibitions have included: Bagged; Aperture Art; Three Sides of Seidman; Selections from Six; Excerpts; Drinks and Smoke; Me, Now; Handscapes; New Eyes and Feast for the Eyes.

 

‘New Eyes’ is also the title of his 338-page photo-biography, a compilation of his fine-art photographic series. The large, illustrative book presents 14 of his fine-art series in a signed and numbered, limited edition.

Rolando Chang Barrero, was born in Coconut Grove, FL and currently resides in West Palm Beach, FL.  After receiving a BFA School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Rolando became an artist and art activist. Pulling together artists from various media and spectrums of life, his own artwork often took a back seat. His famous Art Walks established the Boynton Beach Arts District as the place to be seen.  He assures The Rickie Report that those will continue on a monthly basis, even as he puts his energies into this new gallery in Lake Worth.  His studio remains at 410 West Industrial Ave., Boynton Beach, FL.  In addition, he and Craig McInnis are organizing Art Synergy/Art Palm Beach ART WEEK for January, 2015.
