World Record Run with Guiding Eyes for the Blind CEO

This morning, Mark Liflander photographed ultra-runner Scott Jurek and Guiding Eyes for the Blind CEO Tom Panek at the peak of Bear Mountain in Bear Mountain State Park, NY.

Scott is in the process of breaking the world record for running the entire Appalachian Trail.

Tom is a blind runner, and Scott guided Tom through this year's Boston Marathon. The two friends joined up on the AT today to help raise money for Guiding Eyes. Scott is donating part of the proceeds from his run to Guiding Eyes.

Two news crews and a documentary film crew were on hand to capture Scott as he passed through Perkins Peak with Tom today. The film crew is working on a documentary called 'Game Changers', which features vegan super-athletes  to help shed light on the ever-growing problem of methane waste from cows raised for beef.

Guide Dog-in-training German Shepherd Klinger was there to represent our four-legged furry friends.  Klinger is also the first Guiding Eyes dog to be trained to guide visually impaired people on long distance runs.

May the force be with you...


Recently LJ Studios Photography had the pleasure of photographing a very fancy private airplane!  Being the Star Wars fans we are, we decided the cockpit image could use a little something to make it more interesting!  Hopefully the clients like our sense of humor!

New Reception Desk

Thanks to Leslie Samela for our new reception desk. The desk was originally Leslie's mom's and was refinished by Paul Gammon, Leslie's brother. We lost Paul a couple of months ago to cancer, and we now have a small reminder of Paul's talent in our studio.



New Look, Same Art

James would like give a special thanks to Gene and Chris for sacrificing their one Saturday off to come in and give the face of LJ Studios a new coat of paint.

This week we had the pleasure of shooting in studio for Linda Berkeley-Weiss and her dog Cutie's latest liter! With smiles on our faces and joy in our hearts, the staff at LJ Studios had the greatest amount of fun with these furry friends.
