Ive been working on disasters with the Salvation Army now for 8 years. I kept on hearing this term “ARC…ARC” but I never really stopped to ask what it was about until I was in Puerto Rico, where Captain Alex Valesquez sat down and told me what they were all about, and he should know, he runs one of the bigger ARCs in the US. What he told me absolutely blew my mind.
With one of the highest efficacy rates I have ever heard of for an addition rehab program, what is further mind boggling is that there are no financial costs tied to those enrolling in the program. All they have to do is answer 6 questions.
Im sure many of you out there listening know someone who is struggling with different kinds of addictions, be it drugs, alcohol or the like. I felt so inspired about what Alex does that I felt compelled to share it! What an incredible service to so many without hope, many whom I have personally witnessed completely turning their lives around to becoming incredible men! That is today’s topic on The Maven Nation!
PS- I know the audio is a little rough, but it was the best we could do!
If you are new to photography, you will or will have UV filters pushed on you by sales people. Are they worth it? In this video, Michael talks about some of the basic different types of filters available for your lenses & which ones he uses, as well as for why.

Shot this last Friday all on a Sony A9 handheld. It literally took just a few minutes to edit together. I have a few clients who are interested in these very shot comedy sketches as a means of promoting their businesses on social media. If you have the ability to be funny and have a good idea of what you are doing with a camera, this is a potential marketing goldmine for the sharing and laugh feels associated with marketing! More coming:
For what it was, entertainment, I thought it was really, really good. Is it really a 98% as it says on Rotten Tomatoes (a nearly perfect score)? Not quite (its probably closer to an 85% which is still amazing) Is it worth seeing in theaters if you like the Comic Book hero type of flick? Absolutely!
There were very mild undertones of political statements near the end, but I didnt think it ruined the experience. Great acting, great visuals, great sets & costumes, great effects, excellent tension throughout- I really enjoyed it!
Wanted to share a video I recorded way back in November 15, 2017 in Puerto Rico. I had literally no time to prepare or practice, it was shot on my iPhone 6 in a rental car between making food runs. We didnt have very good internet connection down there, so I am finally posting it now.
There is a growing trend in the Youtube Photography Community about intentionally misunderstanding others and nit picking them. Im really tired of it!
