Back to the impact tips, I apologize for the interruption last week but I'm back! As I mentioned a few weeks ago, there is something new brewing at Vrai that I am excited to be a part of and announce....soon! :) But first, I want to introduce a VIP that I am so excited to partner with and feel so blessed to know. Stay tuned next week to meet our third partner in crime...
Jacklyn Greenberg is a very talented photographer in CT and has a similar philosophy on keeping the business green and living her life in a conscious way. So much that she has custom built an off road vehicle that she and her partner can live, travel, and shoot in to minimize their impact on their business. Its brilliant and really cool and I just might have to get one myself one of these days ;)
Here are the specs copied right from her blog: I recommend that you also check out her blog, travel pics, and website. She is a really unique spirit!

To top it off, they also have solar panel hookups to charge our batteries and they are soon going to convert it to biodiesel and eventually a full conversion to a completely environmentally friendly - extremely low impact vehicle! This means that JAG Studios will be a completely green mobile hardcore off-road studio! AND they have a pure sine inverter that allows us to run a full dual monitor Mac Pro system, strobes, printers, the works!
And of course...pictures! These are all taken of Jacklyn's blog with her permission :)

Stay tuned next week to see who our other partner in crime is ;)
