Friendly Encounters

This is another in a series about my friends meeting celebrities.

I met Jim Strong at the recent Klinger Promotions event in St. Charles (IL). Strong was photographing Al Snow, Tammy Sytch and all of the fans at the event. I am very glad Strong was there and that I connected with him. My digital camera zonked on me and I was forced to use a disposable camera, which ended up zonking out as well. I talked to Strong and he supplied me with the pictures that I was missing, saving the day.
Strong is a Chicago area photog who has been working on photo sessions or promo pictures. He recently had his first sale to one of the girls from one of his shoots. He has worked some wrestling events and some bikini shoots.
Strong produced great sets of photos for Chicago Style Wrestling, PCWWrestling, Great Lakes Championship Wrestling and others. Strong is always at the heart of the action, getting the best shot. If anyone is interested in Strong's work, you can contact him at
I appreciate Strong helping me with those pictures. I also am happy that he has shared this picture and will be sharing more here in the future.

Tammy is really one of the nicest stars I have ever met.

Tammy really is nice. She goes out of her way for her fans. Is it just being smart? Maybe, but few stars do as much as she does. Either way, it's better for the fans.

I have also met Tammy and she is indeed the real deal. She is genuinely nice and truly cares abot her fans. Of course, she makes money from it, but so do many others who are a lot less nice to people.
