A simple product. A simple photo. No questions asked.

FizzBlaster Home Carbonation System CapI’ve thought about buying one of those SodaStream machines to make my own sodas at home — until I saw how much a machine costs! I just did a photo shoot for a great new product right here in the Orlando area called FizzBlaster. It’s a small blue cap you screw onto a soda bottle and connect to a CO2 canister to make homemade soda or to carbonate beer or wine. It’s really simple and easy to do. And it’s cheap! Who needs one of those expensive SodaStream machines?

If you’re interested in making your own soda at home, make sure to check out FizzBlaster and make sure to notice their awesome photography!

Another website for a painter, but this one is a bit different

RusselPainting-LOGO-ForWeb-OnLightBackgroundTwo painter websites in a row — but two entirely different kinds of painters and two entirely different websites. Last month I completed a website for fine artist (painter) Guy LeFebre and his Blue Water Art. This month, I’m debuting a new website for another painter, but this one paints houses, not canvases.

Russel Painting was looking for a way to attract visitors to the company website. I developed a complete package for them including extensive work on search engine optimization (SEO) to bring eyeballs to the website, and hopefully new clients to the business. I think the site turned out very nice, and reports are that business is booming.

If you’re looking for the best painter in the business, commercial and residential, make sure to visit RusselPaiting.com and tell them James sent you.

A whale of a website for Blue Water Artist Guy LeFebvre

sea turtle websiteWhen I first saw the work of Blue Water Artist Guy LeFebvre, I was immediately captivated. His marine life seems to come alive and swim right there on the canvas. His pieces are truly striking.

When Guy asked me to design and build a website for his artwork, I was honored. If I’ve been successful in showcasing his work at Blue Water Art, then you’ll be as captivated as I was the first time you see his turtles, manatees, sharks and whales.

Restaurant and food photography for a chain on the way up

I was recently up at The Sheik (a Jacksonville chain) for a food and model photo shoot. It was great working with a great brand that is on the way up. Who knows, one day Sheiks may be everywhere!

Shooting people is generally a breeze, but food photography is very challenging. In a recent survey of consumers, poor food photography was the number one reason people voted restaurant websites to be “amateur” and “unappealing.” I hope I’ve done my part to bring The Sheik’s website up to consumer expectations.

Doesn’t that “Steak in a Sack” look good? And that’s before I pull it into Photoshop and go to work on it! Click on each photo to view larger.

If you need a restaurant and/or food photographer, give me a call!

Who has time for accounting services? Who has time for SEO services?

kenney and kenney accountantsIf you’re a small business owner like me, you don’t have time to keep up with the latest tax laws and accounting tasks. You’re busy running your business, getting new customers, and performing everyday work. And you probably don’t have a whole lot of extra money to hire a full time bookkeeper to keep up with all the paperwork.

I recently helped local Winter Park-based accounting firm, Kenney and Kenney, get their site updated and optimized for search engines (SEO). Like accounting, SEO is easily brushed aside as something to do “later.” Well, if “later” never comes, how are future customers going to find you, if you don’t appear in Google search results. Do yourself a favor, and get in touch with Kenney and Kenney for all your accounting needs, and get in touch with me to review your website’s SEO.
