Today I attended a conference run by Digital Doughnut. I knew they did digital, I knew they were related to marketing, and I did meet people who worked in the field.

So last week I was kindly requested to take photographs of some of our senior executives, so they could update their various online profiles, both internal and external. I brought my camera in and diligently grabbed a series of portraits. I then cleaned them up, worked some Picasa magic (we don’t have Photoshop here), cropped, […] continue reading »
