It case you haven't checked had a chance to check out Portrait Inspiration, I have been steadily blogging and finding a nice loyal following. In addition the Portrait Inspiration Facebook Fan Page, and Pinterest pages have been blooming as well. To date, I have featured 6 photographers who have not only inspired me but have inspired others that have appreciated what Portrait Inspiration stands for.
If you like funny... if you like drama... if you like great acting then you are going to want to see PX This coming this October. Now that might seem like a long time from now and you are right it is but I am super excited to announce that you can get a glimpse of what I am talking about from the cool trailer below.
That being said I will continue to grow with Portrait Inspiration. Already I have had several inquiries about photographers wanting to be featured along with requests for written blog posts to add to the tips section. My goal is to keep moving the inspirational factor forward to the many talented photographers and lovers of portrait photography who I have met over the years. Once it's on its road I will start delegating some of the tasks of running a blog/website.
As for now Jai Catalano is alive and well and shooting all the time. I even set this self portrait family photo shoot up for my children's daycare. I had a good friend click the button as the crazy Catalano's did their thing. Luckily we found a nice centered moment and my friend took the shot. Let me know what you think.
In case you didn't read my Welcome To Portrait Inspiration post, I suggest you check it out to see if you like and believe in the direction the site will go in. Any feedback is appreciated. In a nutshell, I am creating a safe haven community to educate, support and inspire the portrait photographer as well as those that love the art form.
If you love portrait photography (or know someone who does) and you equally love to inspire and be inspired than maybe you would like to give a helping hand to a website in its infancy.
I am looking to build connections with other photographers who you personally know. For example, you might have a best friend or family member who is a novice or professional and would like to be featured on Portrait Inspiration to continue to promote their brand. If so, I would love to hear from them to possibly feature them.
In addition, if he or she likes to write I would like to feature guest bloggers who know about photography and can contribute to spread the goal for Portrait Inspiration.
Anyway, I am super proud that the site has lifted off. As of today PI has 90 Facebook likes and 1 submitted session for next weeks feature.

Today begins the episode of the web series I am featured in. Sound Advice brings us J. Teddy Garces as Dr. Theodore W. Evington lll. A dysfunctional therapist that tells you exactly what you DON'T want to hear... and you'll love him for it.
WARNING!!! CURB your HANG-UPS!
Sound Advice Episode 1 is not for the weak.
Enjoy watch the series below and please share your thoughts.
Whatever the case might be I will start a mini blog which will attach to this site for the next 30 days. I will post pictures and updates daily and like always I look forward to your comments or questions.
So let's get down to business. The above photo was taken earlier this morning BEFORE starting Asylum. In addition I haven't worked out in 2 days AND this passed weekend I wasn't overly concerned with eating like a rabbit. :)
My starting weight is 170lbs.
Below are 5 goals I want to achieve going in to this new workout.
1. Get stronger
2. Look leaner
3. 6 pack abs
4. More definition
5. Lose 5lbs
In case you didn't see the Insanity before and after transformation please check it out below.
However, I am super proud to announce that Sound Advice Episode 1 will begin airing at a world wide web near you on August 1st, 2012. This project is extremely funny with a whole lot of rude, obnoxious, judgmental, indignant, intolerable GENIUS.
Please check out the website and trailer below.

In case you need a little reminder, PX This is the series that I booked a few weeks ago. It's a show based on the book PX This - Diary of the "Maitre d' to the Stars" by the talented Abbe Diaz. Late last night or should I say very early this morning (1 am) we started shooting one of my juice fun scenes at a posh restaurant in NYC.
Shhhh... I think I have said too much.
I really wish I could tell you all about the drama, humor, betrayal, deceit and scandal that is going on behind the hot and sexy kitchen... but I can't. However, I will tell you that my character is fun fun fun fun fun and JUICY with a capital J.
Shhhh... Ok now I really think I have said too much but that is what happens when you get home at 6 am from an all night shoot after being up all day with 2 kids. :)
Ok 1 last thing but that is it.
I spoke to Abbe in between takes and she told me we are on point for a September 1st completion of PX This which very possible will coincide with her new book.
Shhh... Ok now I have spilled way too many of the "baked beans." :)
Check out the PX This trailer below.
Today I am proud to showcase Suzy who I have worked with several times now. She has become a good friend and oh I almost forgot... she is an amazing professional fitness trainer. How do I know? Well, aside from the fact she is in great shape. Suzy has been in the business for a very successfully long time.
Below are a few of the shots that we both fell in love with along with the feature image that is a doll type before and after photoshop transformation.
I would love to hear what you think.
My personal fun blog about my finances, digital photography career and my life with 1 wife and 2 kids. :)
