Fairfax Chamber of Commerce Citizenship Awards Event | Northern VA Event Photographer

The Fairfax County Chamber of Commerce held their 2012 Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards at the McLean Hilton in Tysons Corner, VA. The awards were presented at the Chamber’s Annual Chairman’s Luncheon before a record-breaking audience of nearly 700 members of the business community, elected officials and other community leaders.  The Outstanding Corporate Citizenship Awards honor business leadership and above-and-beyond corporate social responsibility. The nominations period took place from January-March 2012, and finalists and winners were selected by an independent selection committee.

I photographed the reception prior the luncheon as well as the awards luncheon.  You can see the entire set of photographs by going the the Chambers Flickr site:

Vienna, VA Photographs

I think every photographer should have a little pet project that they do on the side beyond their normal client photography.  I take a lot of photographs of my family, but I wanted to have another personal photo project beyond my family.  After taking a few photos in Vienna, VA after a recent snow storm, I got the idea of taking photographs of my home town, Vienna, VA throughout the year.  It is a very interesting town, I go into town almost everyday, so it is convenient, and it is probably an area that hasn't been that photographed, unlike neighboring Washington, DC. 

LAHEY LOST VALLEY PARK is about a half block from my house. The woman who used to own the land that my house is on donated a large piece of wooded land to Fairfax County after she died.  Other than the house that she used to live in, the park is full of trees and a small creek.  This park is pretty much un-kept.  If it wasn't for the local residents that walk through the park, there wouldn't be any paths.  So one day, at  around noon, I took my dog for a walk with camera (Nikon D7000 with Nikon 35MM F1.8 lens) in hand. The shot below was okay in color, but I  took it into Photoshop and ran it through Nik SilverEfex Pro and 30 seconds later I had a much more interesting photograph.
