THIS MONTH'S THEME: SAFE
Presentation: "My Photos are the opposite of safe"
Creative Director JP Dewberry of JP Make Da Photos Productions provides her clients with funny, visually enticing, awesomely colored, no words necessary, non-traditionally fun photos for your personal or business needs...or wants. Productions include wardrobe, professional MUA (makeup artist) and photographer, creative/art direction, sets, locations, studio, props, concept/theme, and more depending upon your specific needs.
She was studying marketing before she discovered that what she wanted to do would require another type of training. While becoming a certified image consultant she learned about working with models and photo shoot design and later studied visual merchandising. She grouped all of the knowledge together and now works to produce shoots for the advertising and publishing industries, as well as directly to private clients. Her portfolio includes delightful groups of images like the “Color Block Series”, "HollyDaze (Holidays) Pics", and her first album, "Character Portraits 101"; an album comprised of simple to not so simple colorful, witty, sometimes thematic personality shots. Some celebs who've graciously lent a frame or two are Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamiltom, DJ/Producer 9th Wonder, Phonte (The Foreign Exchange), Stokley Williams (Mint Condition), Saul Williams (poet), Lupe Fiasco, Chris Dave (drummer) and Kenny Thomas.
In 2007, JP began working with publisher Malcolm Patterson to produce enticing covers for the popular barber magazine “Against the Grain” which have featured prominent Houston personalities such as DJ Hi-C ("Dichotomy of a DJ"), IKEM of In da Mix ("Off Duty") Savvi and EOuality of H.I.S.D. ("Spaced Up"), and entertainers Musiq Soulchild, Anthony Hamilton, and Def Jam comedian Ali for their features in the magazine. Always preferring to be behind the scenes, she gives credit to the people she depends on to successfully complete a shoot. At her right hand as photographer is colleague and partner Mr. Menkiti Rice. Other crew members include Laura Bueno and Tanisha "Tee" Burr (her most tenured of her 7 makeup artists), and a small but diverse hand-picked crew models such as Sydnee Simone, Genet Monique, and Ken Echols.
Many call her a photographer because she does indeed produce images, and she is handy with a camera, but her duty is to create the entire plan of a photo shoot and make it all happen. This includes using her vivid imagination to lead the model, photographer, and stylists to bring it all to fruition.
Presentation: Don't play it safe when it comes to your make-up choices

Presentation: Better safe then sorry
ADT Security Services
I started with ADT August 20, 2007 in Omaha Nebraska as a small business sales representative. I used my previous industry in real estate to help build a network of referral business and build a reputation in security sales industry. After being a rep for a year and a half I was promoted to be the local district manager in Omaha. I took over a team of underperforming reps and ended up turning the department around and finishing in the #1 position out of 53 other like kind markets. At this point ADT asked me to come to Dallas TX and do the same thing within our Resale division. I have now been in Dallas for 2.5 years and our department is doing very well. We finished at 104% for the year in 2012. I’ve formed my business on professionalism, accountability, integrity and being a resource for the clients I encounter each day. I influence my reps of these fundamentals and we take pride in providing a great experience and protecting the people and the things they value most each and every day.
