The Beginning Of My Journey Out Alone In The Business World

March 19th, 2020

here is a story - about right outside the front door (approximately) living in New York City 20 minutes outside of Manhattan - there are many museums here that I have often frequented - in 1976 when I was just beginning with my photography business I had secured a client (Ted Lapidus) a French Clothing Store at the corner of 5th Avenue and 53rd Street - first by speaking with the window designer and asking if she needed photographs of her displays - then she showed my work that I had done for her to the President of the company who needed photograph of his store front for the annual report of the company that owned the store at the time in Paris - after I did that assignment the President asked me if I could do fashion - (which was my dream at that point to do) and I said honestly that I had not done any fashion at that point in time but that I would do some and show him - he said good - do some and show me -which I did and then he said well what do the models look like with my clothes on them - *(which means that he was giving me permission to take his clothes and put them on my models and photograph them and so I did:...........................

The Most Difficult Issue To Deal With As An Artist

March 19th, 2020

the most difficult issue to deal with as an artist is not that it may be difficult to sell the work that you have spent time and money creating but that if your art does for some reason (whatever that may be) increase in its value - then what the tax laws - what the intentions of the purchasers are (whether they are collectors or investors) and what country the art is in and that you as an artist is in all might effective the purchaser of your work -................................

The Uniqueness Of The Art Piece You Are About To Order - ?

March 19th, 2020

things are changing - people no longer need to go to a museum or a gallery or an art fair in order to see the most current - most recently created art - they now are able shop at home on their personal computer - or in their palms with their smart phones and this makes each computer or smart phone into their own private gallery - through the websites that show art online a viewer can become a client instantly - order an artwork in the size and medium that they personally want and by doing this they become co creator of the art that they are purchasing - this makes the art that they have purchased not only valuable because it is what they like but even more unique because it is make to their own personal specifications - and so unlike the perception that many people may have that there are many pieces of the same because many people can purchase the same image online - these pieces purchased according to the specifications of individual purchasers who are co creators of work that they order online are actually unique in that they are made specifically for the person ordering ...........................................

The Law Of Attraction And Finding The Correct Art Image For You -

March 19th, 2020

Along time ago - back in the late 1960's and early 1970's - I used to wonder - when I looked at the art in the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA NY) - how anyone would even begin to know that I exist let alone how they might find - or discover or be introduced to any of my art - it seemed to me - at the time that I was doing this heavy thinking - that not only were there lots and lots and lots of other artists in the world - but also - it seemed apparent to me that if an artist had to have his or her work be accepted by a curator in a gallery or a museum - that that screening process prevented not only a lot of art by famous artists from being seen by the public - but also all of the countless artists that were not known must have also created works of art that no one or not a great many viewers have seen - ....................................................

How Did I Come Up With The Name Volord And The Development Of Volord Kingdom

March 17th, 2020

Back in the very early 1980's after having worked at both ABC (American Broadcasting Companies) Record Division and the Motion Picture Division I was ambitiously motivated to create my very own network and then grow from what I knew was the American Broadcasting Companies, Inc. was - I created first World Broadcasting Companies, Inc. but when I went to register this name with the State of New York my application was rejected mainly because there was a World Communications Company registered in California and the name was too close so before my application fee had run out I quickly looked up in an Armenian -English Dictionary (I am of Armenian descent) and discovered that Volord which means world or Universal was the closest name I could come up with that would most likely be accepted and that no-one in their right mind would use this name - so I registered that name for my very own Broadcasting Companies - ...............................

Why Did I Create My Very First Serious Self Portrait That I Went And Used On All Of My Business Cards In One Way Or Another?

March 17th, 2020

Well basically you could say that I wasn't happy with the way a particular photograph that one of my friends took portrayed me and leave it at that - but to be honest the photograph which was a black and white taken on a rainy night with a flash - was not really all that bad except - and this was the important point - it made my hair - which was still completely all pitch black at this time in 1992 - as if it was grey because of the way that black and white photograph show the lights from a flash on wet hair at night - and someone who had seen the photograph made such a comment that they did not realize that I had turned grey - ..................
