From Vahe’ Alaverdian, Falconer, Photographer, Entrepreneur- “Hi Tony, I hope you are doing well my friend. Just wanted to send you a quick update about Falcon Force LLC. We recently contracted with San Diego Sea World and their water park Aquatica for a 2 year contract, providing them bird abatement services for their sea gull infestation, (the contract is for 7 days a week 10 hours a day per park). We are still protecting cherries, blueberries and wine grapes, but this new addition pushed our horizons further into theme parks and resorts,  Falcon Force LLC grew from a one man show to a twelve man operation in 3 years.
Thanks for your inspiration.

I also wanted to share a very inspiring quote from Paulo Coelho, perhaps you can share it with our friends...
"Tell your heart that the fear of suffering is worse than the suffering itself. And no heart has ever suffered when it goes in search of its dream".
Love you man!
Regards,
Vahe´Alaverdian

 Thomas Bertling, Instructor, Author, “Hi Tony.Thank you so much for your encouragement and for offering to promote the book on your blog. Honestly, your first paragraph of the email is quite the endorsement!”

About "How To Draw: Drawing and Sketching Objects and Environments From Your Imagination":
Any creative person who'd like to bring their ideas to life on paper will find "How To Draw: Drawing and Sketching Objects & Environments From Your Imagination" by Scott Robertson & Thomas Bertling an invaluable resource.  The authors are experienced Art Center College of Design faculty, and bring you the lessons and techniques they have used to help thousands of their students become professional artists and designers.

The book is based on curriculum that they have developed for Art Center's foundations classes, in which all Industrial Design (Transportation, Product, and Entertainment Design) students learn how to draw any object or environment from the imagination, starting with the most basic perspective drawing skills.

Early chapters explain how to draw accurate perspective grids and ellipses that in later chapters provide the foundation for more complex forms. The research and design processes used to generate visual concepts are demonstrated, making it much easier for you to draw things never-before-seen.  Best of all, more than 25 pages can be scanned via a smartphone or tablet using a free Android or iOS app, which links to video tutorials for that section of the book.

You can find the book on Amazon here:

A Six Month Photographic Journey Through the Unites States. Photography. Adventure. BAFreedom USA.
This April, I will be hitting the road to scour the gutters and pillars of our society, in my good ol' Ford Coach House van. I'm asking you to join me on this trip to help unveil the people and the places our country does not shine with the limelight. Help me show you the truth of BAFreedom in the USA...

I will be taking this road trip, and shooting photographs (and video) until I'm good and done. My friend, Ian Beaudoux, will also be documenting in a series of short videos. I plan to develop as much film as I can on the road to keep you and myself up-to-date. Upon my return I will be hand-printing all of my favorite photographs to be shown in a gallery/art show (venue to be announced) which you are all invited to attend. Along with the show I will be making a big, fancy coffee table book showcasing all of my work from the journey (will be available for purchase)...

I have been saving up my own money to fund my van, gas, food, shower, and some of my photography supplies. However, in order to fully have enough money for photography supplies, the book and show when I return...I will need your help!

- From Ezekiel Wheeler, Automotive Culture Consultant, on new developments for ASM and VMM-

ASM (http://autostyles.wordpress.com)
The gateway to the automotive industry through design, destinations and culture. For the past five years, ASM has prided itself on creating a destination where the entire experience of automotive ownership and enthusiasm is showcased. Numbers are boring and talking heads seem to be characters of the real human experience. ASM dives into all aspects of the automotive environment, destinations, drives, events, interviews, clothing, and products all play a vital role when enjoying life on the tarmac.

FUTURE: Take ASM to a bi-monthly printed newsletter and a quarterly magazine covering the lifestyle of automotive ownership. Destinations, Fashion, Events, Products and (of course) the cars that get us there.

VMM is a boutique journalism firm. Specializing in automotive photography, design & the power of the written word; we tell the stories corporations want to tell. The new phrase, content is king, is only as powerful as the content you create. VMM is here to provide our extensive professional journalism background to populate the next generation of automotive public relations. Corporations do more between press releases than their customers are privy to. These companies are made up of enthusiasts and adventurers who strive to connect with their customers each and every day. VMM provides a third-party perspective on the internal workings and outreach each company goes through to provide the products their customers desire.

FUTURE: To attract talented individuals to work under the VMM umbrella. Think of us like a talent agency of the (for now) automotive industry. Writers, Designers, Photographers, Videographers and Artists; any talented individuals looking to connect with the industry. Opposed to approaching corporations solo, individuals can utilize VMM as their personal agent and mediator. You get to do what you love all the time while we hunt for the jobs you love

January 23, 2014
It’s Not Too Late to Reinvent Yourself
“Professional reinvention is different later in your career. Over-50 professionals who hope to make a transition should consider these tips:

Overqualified? Own it. Instead of ducking the issue, lead with it. Having been a manager, you understand the pressures and frustrations your potential employer faces, so you can be an even better employee.
Social media is no longer optional. If you don’t have a presence on basic sites like LinkedIn or Twitter, you’re likely to be dismissed as a Luddite. Your social presence is increasingly viewed as a proxy for staying current professionally.

Connect with your past. Some of the most valuable professional opportunities come from people we’ve lost touch with. In the years since you last communicated, your “dormant ties” have connected with new people and gathered new knowledge. Your history and shared experience makes it more comfortable to reconnect; reach out and reintroduce yourself.”

Adapted from “How to Reinvent Yourself After 50” by Dorie Clark.
