RE: Independence of the Seas Video and Review
“It was a pleasure to host Len onboard Royal Caribbean International’s Independence of the Seas. His in-depth interviews of the staff and crew along with his thorough overview of our onboard spaces truly helped bring the ship to life. Any first time cruiser that would read his article and view his videos would get a first hand look at what it is like to sail onboard Independence of the Seas.”

The Art Of Storytelling Exhibit Opens At The American Visionary Art Museum in Baltimore

Subject: Re: AVAM Article
Just saw the article & had a chance to look through your photos – incredible! Thank you so much for the great work you did & for being here on the Media Tour & covering our show.
The photos are really fantastic! If the offer still stands, we’d love to have digital copies of them – and yes we would make sure to have your name credited in any way we use them. What uses would be okay? I’m a photographer as well so I most definitely understand & respect the wishes of a fellow shutterbug. We would most likely just use the shots you got for promoting the museum & the exhibit, like on Facebook, Flickr, or our website. It’s also possible our Director of Design could want to use some in the publication of our exhibition catalog. Your shot of the staircase in the main building is just simply awesome!!! I’d really love to be able to hand that one out for media uses if that’s okay.
Thanks again & great work. Rebecca was really excited to see the article too!

Ruffwear Swamp Cooler Vest Keeps Dogs Cool Through Evaporative Cooling
Date: October 4, 2012 2:44:08 PM EDT
From: Susan Strible
Subject:Re: Our Swamp Cooler Vest Review has been published
To: Len Rapoport
Hi Len –
Thanks for following up today! I did in fact get your email and I apologize for the delay in getting back to you.
I can’t thank you enough for writing this comprehensive review of the Swamp Cooler. It’s very well done and we sure appreciate your thoughtful approach to product testing and reviews. Also, I’m glad to know that the Swamp Cooler has made a difference for Georgie and increased his enjoyment of being outdoors when it’s hot outside!
For your future consideration, I have a couple of product ideas. One is a new leash that we are introducing for Spring/Summer 2013 we’re calling the Slackline™ Leash. I thought of this product for you since you mentioned wanting a shorter leash for Georgie and this leash’s claim to fame is that the length is adjustable. I love this leash for that reason, as well as the fact that it can be worn around the waist for hands-free leash walking (or sometimes running in my case…I have a very active black lab who is not yet 3 years old!). 🙂
The other product that I’d like to send you is a collar called the Top Rope™ Collar. This collar is in our product line now, but we are updating the colors for Spring/Summer 2013. I have a size small sample in this collar that I can send you for you to test out if you like. Both of these new products will be available starting February 1, 2013.
Also, I would be happy to send you an everyday collar for Georgie, the Hoopie Collar is a great basic collar from our product line. Do you have a color preference? Here’s a link to our site, let me know which color you prefer: http://www.ruffwear.com/Hoopie-Collar-trade_6?sc=2&category=16
I have the Slackline Leash and Top Rope Collar samples ready to go. Let me know about the Hoopie Collar and I’ll include that as well. I’ll keep you in mind as we go along for other review ideas. I don’t want to inundate you with too much gear all at once!
Thanks again for staying in touch, Len, and for all your support, I look forward to hearing back!

On Assignment With Beachtek

Subject: Re: New Beachtek Article/Review Published
To: Len Rapoport
You covered some of the problems you faced which would be common to most every other shooter learning audio for the first time. You then explained how you overcame the obstacles to capture great sound. What is even more convincing is that you referred to videos you shot before/after you started using the Beachtek. Well done!
I don’t recall if I offered your members a special price if they would like to purchase the DXA-SLR PRO. Do you remember if we discussed this? If not, we can certainly see what we can do.

Nice review – thanks so much for the exposure. Would you mind if we put a link on our spec page to this review. I have not asked Pat, but I am sure that he received the lens back. Your lens is actually on Back Order. I will have to check later today when they think it will go out and let you know.
