Production stills at Total Living Network

I had a wonderful opportunity recently to partner with the Total Living Network to do the production stills of the taping of a promotional video.  The featured spokesperson was Gavin MacLeod, a well-known TV actor, noted probably best for his role as the captain on The Love Boat TV series and the Mary Tyler Moore Show.   The new product series is called “Character Classics,” published by the Character  Building Company, and written by very well known children’s author Tony Salerno.

Winter Snow Sculpture Photos - Breckenridge, Colorado - photos by Jim Whitmer

In contrast to the 80 degree temperatures we had a couple weeks ago in California, we’re in the Rocky Mountains this week for some new adventure and photos. We’re starting off in Breckenridge, which is this year’s host to the International Snow Sculpture event. There were 16 teams from 9 countries competing for the best snow sculpture, and it was amazing to see what each team did with their 12-ton block of snow.  It’s not an Olympic event, but it almost had that flavor with the international flags, national anthems, and award presentations yesterday afternoon.

We also stopped in Parker, CO, on our way to the mountains to provide some photo support for the Parker Family Care facility. Their services include medical, counseling and cometics.  These new staff photos will be used in their marketing materials and promotions.
