Cell Phone Pics for a Listing… NOT!!!!

Cell Phone Pics for a Listing… NOT!!!!

 

As I landed my most INCREDIBLE listing to date, the sellers wanted the Luxury Listing package.  As I saw what some of these things would cost, I rationalized that marketing will get this property sold QUICKLY.  They priced it very well.  I have to tell you, I’m in LOVE with this property.  I have a great Nikon wide angle lens and lighting.  I got some great pics.  BUT, were they good ENOUGH?

Fast forward to the first call to the “company approved photographer.” On first conversation, he told me he would be taking pictures with his iPad.  I almost lost it.  My husband says to calm down, and proceeds to find pics in Google, showing attached lenses and lighting.  Didn’t make me feel any better.  On the day of the shoot, I was relieved to see tripods and cameras, MANY of them!  No sight of an iPad.  This man was PREPARED!  He knew where the sun would rise and set, what time, how long we had for each part of the shoot.  As he started to work, out came the iPad, which was attached to the camera and lighting.  I was amazed to watch what he could do with it!

I can’t even start to tell you the QUALITY of this man’s work.  Trust me, the money that you will spend on a shoot is worth EVERY PENNY.  He was at the house for almost 7 hours.  And we learned alot.I’ll be posting the pics when I get them from him on Tuesday.  I’ll even try to compare his to mine.  NOT!!!  Aaaaaaaanyways…

Longtime Radio Man Pinky Kravitz Dead at 88

He was known as “Mr. AtlanticCity,” passed away Saturday at 88 years of age.

Pinky Kravitz, AKA Mr. Atlantic City

Pinky’s real name was Seymour, which, as history has it, he never answered to.  His personality was infectious.  For 57 years, he hosted”Pinky’sCorner” on station WOND.  He would broadcast from local restaurants and haunts, and recently from the Borgata Hotel and Casino.  He had also hosted a talk show on channel 40, an NBC affiliate that shut down last year.  He also wrote a column for the Press of Atlantic City from 2010 til earlier this year.  He used to do a 1 minute gossip clip on the locals called “Insider Notes.”

He had been out sick for the first time in all his years (56!) at WOND back in May when he underwent open heart surgery.  He had a hard time coming back from it.  He started calling in stand-in hosts and retired shortly thereafter in August.

 

Surviving are his wife, Janet; and two sons, Jeffrey and Gregory. His daughter, Cheryl, died in 2006 after 18 years as a teacher in Atlantic City’s schools.

There will never be another Pinky.  May he rest in peace…
