Jenny BermanI have been a professional photographer for over twelve years. Since the ninth grade, the support of friends, family, and mentors opened a door to a different world, one behind a lens. My first inspiration was Jerry Uelsmann. Uelsmann is a photo-surrealist from the 60’s before the advent of digital art. He used multiple enlargers, hours of darkroom time, and perfected a unique style. His innovation and mastery of technique still drive me today. I learned my craft at The School of Visual Arts in New York City, where I studied with the finest photographers and printers in the world. Through Robert Frank, Anne Leibovitz, and many other established photographers and organizations, I learned the many factors that comprise a perfect photograph; subject, lighting, the finished print, and of course the person behind it all. In July of 2002 I ventured on my own, and started Ashton Imaging Inc. With pride, I bring every photograph to life, and am able to send clients home with much more than a print; I present my clients with a story and an idea or value they never noticed. I bring my photographs and your photographs together and preserve the chronicles of your life.
Host: How can I share digital pictures with friends and family?
Jenny Berman: There are many websites out there that you can upload your pictures to and log your friends and to give the pictures you can order online, there are at least ten of them out there. So, its extremely easy and foolproof, if I can do it anybody can, it just got a cellphone last year.
So, it s not exactly a difficult thing and if you have any young kids that are ten they will able to help you.
