Sky High Rooftop Photography in New York City

The Spring Edition of Strayer University's Scholar Magazine featured Allyson King, Vice President of Education at Clarins, the French skin care and cosmetics company.  We photographed Allyson at the Clarins USA HQ in New York City at their Park Avenue office.  Their office's are on the top floor of their building so we were able to go out on the rooftop and  take some great photos of Allyson with the Chrysler Building in the background.  

It was a very sunny day and the sun was right in Allyson's face.  So there was no way to get a good photo of her without her squinting.  So I had my assistant hold a large card between the sun and Allyson and we used an Paul C. Buff Einstein strobe to light her face.  

The cover photograph was taken with Allyson in front of a window through with me standing on a high stool shooting down at her with a New York building serving as our background.  We were able to open the window with no screens or glass to worry about.   You can see the entire article by clicking here.

New York Waldorf Astoria Conference / Event | Washington, DC Event Photographer

New York's Waldorf Astoria is a great environment for a business conference.   My client asked me to photograph the event and try to capture all the dynamics of the conference.  These conferences are more than just a transfer of information from the speakers to the attendees, but it is a dynamic give and take of ideas between attendees and subject matter experts.  Contacts get made, new ideas get shared, and everyone leaves with new ideas to take back to their companies and hopefully do things in better and more creative ways.  

I always learn some fascinating things when I photograph these events.  One thing that stood out was the idea of reverse mentoring.  The speed of change is so rapid that it is hard for older executives to keep up with the new technologies and behavior patterns of younger customers.  So they get mentored by younger staff members who have grown up in this new age. The other thing was how major change use to occur over a generation, now major change is occurring every six years.

New York City - Apple Store - Central Park

I was in New York visiting a client and my daughter and I stopped by the Apple Store across from Central Park by the Plaza Hotel.  I had my little Canon S100 Point and Shoot camera with me and I looked up and saw this magnificient site.
