Hillel International Institute 2018

Hillel offers a variety of conference opportunities to convene Jewish professionals and college students from Hillels around the world. This year the conference was at Long Island’s Hofstra University, a school Jonathan photographed for full-time over two years.

Our assignment was aimed at creating stock imagery for marketing/advertising to be used in both internal/external pieces. The challenge was the attendees schedule did not include any downtime…. at all. So, our photos had to be candid. The next challenge Jonathan had, and was fully aware of prior to arriving on site, was the facilities. At Hofstra University most of the buildings are dimly lit, poorly lit, and are extremely dated. Jonathan in some cases used fill flash to add additional light and other cases photographed with a slower shutter speed and higher ISO than preferred.
