Tom Kwai Lam
Tom writes, “Let me bring my 30 years experience in celebrating and capturing the moment and the spirit to your portrait, hand fasting or other ceremony, or any other kind of intimate photos you want. I’m fast, fun, flexible, and good. Clients have told me I bring a calming influence to their ceremonies.
I use high end digital still equipment, portable studio lighting when
merited, a laptop and mobile printer, etc. My work has been exhibited in a variety of locations in the greater bay area, is published regularly by RFD, and has also appeared in The Advocate and other publications. The kind of video camera I use has produced
documentaries for PBS.

Nikos Diaman Limited Editions Photographs
Nikos Diaman of San Francisco writes:
“My subjects include landscapes, architectural details, vegetables displayed at a farmers market, flowers either growing in nature or part of a still life arrangement, as well as personal interchanges between people in public. I find beauty within both sparse simplicity and lush elegance and am especially drawn to vivid colors. Above all I strive to present a fresh artistic vision.
In a society that too often values material goods above human welfare, art is frequently considered a luxury limited to the wealthy few and gauged by its ability to command stratospheric prices. I reject this narrow proposition and affirm the necessity and importance of beauty in the lives of all people.
I want my work to remain affordable. I am committed to quality, utilizing the best available paper and inks. Each image is offered in a unique edition and will not be reissued in a different print size or incorporated into an auxiliary product.
My work is currently available on textured watercolor paper in three sizes. The smallest inkjet prints are 12 x 16 and the largest 24 x 36. The edition sizes range from 100 to 30 and the individual images are priced from $125 to $450. I am willing to negotiate flexible payment terms with prospective buyers.”

There are pockets of magic. You know it when you step inside the circle: the lighting changes, there is frisson in the air, the contrast is profound from where you were seconds ago. That was my recent experience entering Dr. Lesko’s chiropractic clinic on Valencia Street in San Francisco. Wall-to-wall paintings and sculptures litter the space, and this alone makes it worth stopping in and saying hello. I watched Dr. Lesko quickly adjust three people while I finished my paperwork. His clients were quickly led to tables where massage therapists began to work on them. When I sat in front of Dr. Lesko, he briefly ran his hand down my spine, accurately and intuitively knowing what needed adjustment. He has entered the realm of master, those people who by virtue of thousands of hours of practice, cease to think through their actions, they simply are in the flow. His rates are compassionate. There was live guitar music by a client, who Dr. Lesko joined with, playing on the mandolin. A bit like Tony Randall’s The Seven Faces of Dr. Lao, this is a transformative experience and wholly unique. “Everything in it is a wonder.”
