America's VetDogs - 6th Annual 5k Run

America's VetDogs Annual 5k

I had a great time photographing the 6th Annual America’s VetDogs 5k Run benefiting future service dogs, dogs in training, and veterans in need of K9 companionship. 2019 marked my 5th year covering this great event and I will definitely be back. This year’s special guest was Sully Bush, former President George H. Bush’s white Lab service dog (pictured center).

Georgetown University - Spring Lake Annual Alumni Gathering

The annual Georgetown University alumni and incoming freshmen event at the Spring Lake, NJ Bath and Tennis Club occurs on the last Thursday of July every year. Every summer, the event hosted by the Connors family aims to connect incoming freshmen and their parents with many of Georgetown’s accomplished alumni and current student body representatives.

This was my 5th year in attendance (crazy to think it’s been 5 consecutive years already).

The Gateway School Spring Gala 2019

The Gateway School’s signature fundraising and community event of the year took place on Thursday, May 2nd at the Mandarin Oriental right here in New York City. The program included a silent and live auction, and a musical performance by world renowned violinist Itzhak Perlman. Mr. Perlman performance several pieces with Gateway School students.

Photographing events like this gala always provide interesting challenges (lighting, when I can and not photograph), subjects, and angles. Event photography keeps me on my toes! I wanted to capture a great shot of the room with Columbus Circle and Central Park in the background before it became too dark outside. Unfortunately, the formal event did not start until after dark. Luckily, I was able to provide the client several photos of guests taking photos of and with the view. I even included a slow exposure shot of Columbus Circle at night and a day time to night time time lapse.
