Fractured Fish by artist Taylor Lu Kowgios
Fractured Fish by artist Taylor Lu Kowgios

Taylor grew up in Pleasant Valley, New York. Around the age of 12, she began taking pictures, and thus her love for photography was born. Currently a rising senior at Lafayette College, she is earning degrees in Photography, English Literature and Art History. Her work spans multiple facets of photography; her BA degree focuses on fine art photography, but she also photographs events, capturing Greek Life formals, weddings, and sports. After interning with world-renowned photographer John Isaac, her interest in wildlife photography blossomed, which is largely what you see in her work on display here. Her post-undergraduate plan is to earn her Ph.D. in Art History and become a college professor.

“My favorite photograph is titled Fractured Fish. It was taken at the Botanical Gardens in Bronx, NY when I was interning with photographer John Isaac. In this large outdoor pool of water I could see many koi fish swimming around, along with smaller orange fish. A corner of the pool was shooting bubbles into the water, and the orange fish were swarming around the bubbles. Occasionally, the fish would visibly suck air from the surface of the water — this was grabbing my attention! I took some shots closer to the bubble machine, eventually moving over a few inches and capturing this shot here. I was excited by it, but it was not until post-processing that I fell in love with it. In orange, the fish looked captivating, but it felt like the attention of the main fish, with his gaping mouth, was being divided amongst the surrounding fish. Putting the photograph in black and white, the scene changed dramatically. The fish became a grayish color, which balanced beautifully with the black water they were submerged in. What I particularly love is that when put in black and white, the fractured light on the water reflects onto the bodies of the fish, creating beautiful geometric patterns throughout the photograph.”

Club Fit’s Member Self Service (MSS) How-To!

Club Fit’s Member Self Service (MSS) How-To!
Account History

Club Fit’s web site includes a Member Self-Service (MSS) system that allows our members to access personal account history on their own time, without having to make a phone call or stop by the club. But while the idea behind “self-service” is to make things easier for the customer, today’s technology sometimes complicates matters. That is why we are providing you with these step-by-step instructions that will take you to the information you are looking for, including charges, payments, and descriptions of the transactions made through your account. Of course, any discrepancies can be handled face-to-face with our Member Services staff, but often simply viewing this information online will resolve your concerns, and save you time and energy.

Step 1: Head on over to www.clubfit.com, and log in!

MSS is accessed directly from the Club Fit website. Click on the “Login” button located at the top right section of the screen.

Step 2: At the Login page, set yourself up with a personal password you will remember!

User Name will always be the barcode number found on the back of your membership key-tag, and for first-time users, the password will also be the barcode. You will be prompted to set-up a personal password.

Step 5: Get an overview of your charges and payments, and use the sort function to organize your information.

The My Account History page lists charges and payments starting with the most recent activity at the top. Headings at the top of each column allow for selective sorting. Click “Type” to sort by charge or payment. Click Description to sort by specific types of charges. Click “Due” to sort by the date of your charge. But do not click “Current Statement” – not what you want! There may be multiple pages that you can scroll through using the page number arrows at the bottom.

To view the detail of a specific charge or payment: click “Details.”
To find the detail on a specific payment to match your credit card or bank statement: click “Description,” sort the entries and look for EFT Payments. Find the due date that matches the date on your credit card or bank statement. Click “Details” and you will be able to see all the charges that total the amount of your EFT Payment.
