    I 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.

    Jenny Berman: My name is Jenny Berman and I own Ashton Imaging photography. I have been in business for five years in photographing people and families for 15.

    Host: What is the difference between film and digital cameras?

    Jenny Berman: Well, the major difference between the two is CCD versus film and the CCD is just something that attracts light as well as the film does and that is the major difference, other then that sharpening is a huge difference, it s just a different medium, it s like the difference between using oil paints and acrylic.
