The holiday season is in full swing, and we've been busy with everything from personal branding to portraits to corporate events.
I traveled east to visit the amazing Robin and her horses again, this time also photographing Marcia and Spartan as a gift from Robin on the trails at Connetquot River State Park Preserve. We nailed the calendar date for foliage, didn't we? Equine and pet photography make great holiday gifts, too, folks!
More events complete, and more to come! I'm thrilled to add Schroders to the client list - what a great Town Hall to attend and cover with the cameras. Schroders is celebrating its 100th year in NYC, and they dressed the offices to impress. They're a British multinational asset management company headquartered in London - founded in 1804, they employ over 6,000 people worldwide in 38 locations around Europe, America, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Jennifer from their Marketing team was great and easy to work with, from the execution of the interactive multimedia wall to the official unwinding afterwards at Valbella at the Park.
George came back - it's now 7 years later(!) - for his LinkedIn portrait update for his sales clients to recognize him...
We've all read the recent news that we've lost Norman Lear. It was about ten years ago when we had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Norman, the mind behind All in the Family, Maude, The Jeffersons, and so many more television shows and films that helped shape my childhood, and too my adulthood. He has a book out now titled Even This I Get to Experience, promoted with blurbs such as this: "In my ninety-plus years I’ve lived a multitude of lives. In the course of all these lives, I had a front- row seat at the birth of television; wrote, produced, created or developed more than a hundred shows; had nine on the air at the same time; founded the 300,000-member liberal advocacy group People for the American Way; was labeled the “No. 1 enemy of the American family” by Jerry Falwell; made it onto Richard Nixon’s “Enemies List”; was presented with the National Medal of the Arts by President Clinton; purchased an original copy of the Declaration of Independence and toured it for ten years in all fifty states; blew a fortune in a series of bad investments in failing businesses; and reached a point where I was informed we might even have to sell our home..." No doubt a great read by a guy I couldn't have been happier to photograph. Rest easy, Norman - and thanks for everything.
