JDRF Luncheon

A few posts ago I mentioned about the JDRF luncheon for Rob Curley.  Well here are a couple of shots from the luncheon.  I know that I’ve said it before but these are just such a great group of people.  Dedicated beyond belief to the goal of ending Juvenile Diabetes.  Their big fund raiser walk is coming up on October 28th.  If you haven’t done so, please make a pledge to sponsor a walker.  Kim and I will be at the South Jersey Chapter Walk in Camden.  We’ll be providing portraits for all the teams and VIPs as well as  event coverage.  We’ll be doing our part by offering all of the team members the opportunity to purchase copies of the team portraits with all of the profits going right back to the JDRF.  I’ve created a fantastic frame overlay (thanks Photobacks) that will be customized to each teams color.  So it will really be something special when it’s done.  In addition to that I am making a special coupon available for anyone who wishes to purchase other images from my website.  Here again all of the profits from any of these purchases will go to the JDRF.  I know times are tight for a lot of people.  So give what you can.  Even if it’s just a dollar.  It all helps.  Thanks.

Wedding Time

A few weeks back I shot wedding in West Virginia covering for my friend Reid (Mason Photographics) who had double booked himself.  I haven’t done many weddings to date so I was a little nervous.  I have grown to appreciate the skills and talents of the really good wedding photographers I’ve seen.  It’s a lot of hard work to say the least.  Just the people wrangling for the formal pictures is a chore in and of itself.  I have also come to the conclusion that an assistant is a must on these adventures.  Unfortunately I did not have one for this shoot (or the other that I did for Reid).  Here’s a couple of samples from the first one.  As always I’d love to hear what you think.  Thanks.

Sonesta Hotel-Philly

Well I’ve finished and delivered another group of images to Hotel Tonight.  This time it was the Sonesta Hotel in downtown Philly.  It’s a really nice hotel.  Very contemporary in design and furnishings.  It has a great pool located on the 8th floor with a nice view of some of the older buildings in downtown.  The staff was great and got me everything I needed to make the shoot go smoothly.  A special thanks to Jason and all of his hard work.  The only problem was shooting the restaurant and bar.  They were absolutely packed due to the big Made in America concert that was going on over Labor Day weekend.  So I had to make a second trip to get the shots of the bar and restaurant.  The bar and restaurant are a copy of an upscale British pub and is called The Elephant and Castle.  A nice place to stay if you find yourself in Philly.
