As an experienced bar and bat mitzvah photographer in NY City, there are a few things I’ve done for years that have made clients very happy. First, I always get a list of close family and friends so I don’t miss photos of important people. Second I have a timeline of the party highlights so I can be prepared and not miss my shots. And third, the client and I always touch base the week before to confirm all details.
If you’re taking family portraits, another consideration is the lighting used. For more journalistic photos, we use on-camera flash but in darker environments we often use umbrella lighting instead which gives more dimension to the photos. All in all, this is a wonderful and very special occasion and a seasoned professional photographer will create beautiful photos that will last a lifetime!

First impressions go a long way, so having a flattering Linked-In headshot is critical. Its common for potential customers and employers to review your social media profiles, so having your executive portrait taken by a top rated NY City professional photographer is recommended.
Depending on your profession, your portrait can be either casual with a nice shot taken outdoors, or more conservative taken in a photo studio. Most legal and financial pros go with an indoor headshot taken against a backdrop with studio lighting, and others in creative fields will prefer an outdoor more editorial type of look.
Tips for successful headshot photography include keeping clothing simple, having hair and make-up done by a professional and working with a professional photographer who’s portfolio you like.

The trees are blooming, love is in the air and NY City corporate event planners are finalizing details for their spring events. As an event photographer in NY City, I never forget the basics of my journalistic training when covering a story: tell the who, what, why, where and when
For every assignment shooting business party, non-profit gala, meeting and reception photography, here are the shots I always get to tell the story of the event: before the events starts we cover the empty room showing the design, decor and food. During the party we are sure to get photos of senior management, board members and a variety of candid photos. If there is a program of course the speakers are covered as well as overall shots showing the guests, room and speaker.
Event photos are often delivered quickly for social media and press. With a little planning, your special event photographer should be able to deliver excellent and memorable event photography!
Because NY City is home to so many international businesses, corporate financial conferences & meetings are held here daily. Usually the services of a professional photographer experienced in conference & meeting photography is hired. As a NYC photojournalist, I enjoy this type of special event photography because the photo coverage is journalistic and unposed.
First I’ll shoot wide shots of the room to document the setting. Then cover a variety of wide angle shots of the panels, as well as close-ups of the individual speakers. Often there is a networking lunch or break-out sessions on specific topics, which is a great time for casual photos that often end up in social media.
All corporate special events are a great networking opportunity for participants, often afford an expense-paid trip to New York City, and are a win-win for all participants who seek to learn more and become experts in their fields.

Spring is in the air and marketing and NYC public relations teams are ramping up for this season’s corporate meetings and non-profit galas. Having covered conference, meeting, special events and gala photography in NY City, here are some thoughts on how to help your public relations photographer do a great job.
First, let your photographer know the key photos you’ll need for publication in social media including the VIP staff and guests. Second, share the event’s timeline so the team has a strategy for fitting in any posed shots needed for press. Third, facilitate smooth delivery of rush images in advance by providing contact information and deadlines.
Lastly, just want to clarify that there are two types of digital files used for different purposes. Low-resolution files hold less digital information and hence are used for social media and web use. High-resolution files are like negatives and hence are large files, and used only for physical printing purposes. We usually deliver low-res images via DropBox, and the high-res images on DVD.
