IDEA Personal Trainer Conference - Alexandria, VA

If you have been following my blog over the last few years you know I have been photographing the IDEA Health and Fitness Association's conferences in Washington, DC (Alexandria, VA) and in California (San Diego and LA) over the last four years.   I always look forward to these because they are so dynamic and enjoyable to photograph.  As you can see from the photographs, their is so much energy in these sessions, my job is to capture that energy via my photographs.  

The challenge is always the same, the lighting stinks, the athletes are moving fast, and I try not to get myself killed as I run, lay on the floor, and get right next to trainers who are jumping and swinging.  But I wouldn't have it any other way ... this is much better than standing back with a long lens getting boring photographs.  

IDEA sets aside one of the conference rooms at the hotel for what we call the "photo booth."  I bring a white backdrop and some studio lights and take photographs of some of the participants.  I spend about one hour a day over the two days in this on-site studio.  What is great it that the light is great and we have total control of what the athletes/trainers do.  

You can read more about the IDEA World Conference in Anaheim, CA this August by going to the IDEA website found here.

WBL Conference / Event - Four Seasons Washington, DC | Washington DC Photographer

I had the pleasure to spend two and a half days photographing the WBL Summit® at the Four Seasons in Washington, DC. The event is WBL's annual meeting for senior executive women from across the health care industry to network and continue to improve their businesses. Approximately 150 women attend each WBL Summit, and attendance is limited to maintain an intimate networking atmosphere. Each Summit includes ample time for networking and establishing business relationships.  http://www.wbl.org

There was a wonderful group of presentors and panel members including Sheila Burke, Barbara Hackman Franklin, Mae Jemison, Kathy Giusti, and Mary Sammons.
