January 13, 2017 /Photography News/ Born 114 years ago today, on 13 January 1903, Ruth Harriet Louise was the first woman photographer active in Hollywood. She also ran Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer's portrait studio from 1925 to 1930.

When Louise was hired by M.G.M. as chief portrait photographer in the summer of 1925, she was twenty-two years old, and the only woman working as a portrait photographer for the Hollywood studios. In a career that lasted only five years, Louise photographed all the stars, contract players, and many of the hopefuls who passed through the studio's front gates, including Greta Garbo, Lon Chaney, John Gilbert, Joan Crawford, Marion Davies, and Norma Shearer.

Louise died in 1940 of complications from childbirth.

    Considering the period when these images were shot the quality and technique are simply superb. So tragic that Ruth died so young.

    The main suitable arrangement accessible to you now is to pick an understudy private advance solidification. By falling back on this alternative, it will be less demanding for you to pay off your obligations in an appropriate way.

    Justin says

    On account of training advances, there truly is no insurance; i.e., by what means can a loan specialist repossess your instruction? It can't. That is the reason banks depend on a decent credit record, since that is a solid pointer that you and/or your co-underwriter have a demonstrated reputation of reimbursing on your charge cards or different advances in an auspicious and capable way. payday loans
