Wow, New York’s Palace Hotel is just gorgeous! Had a blast shooting this corporate awards dinner, where over 100 international copywriters and art directors came to NYC to receive awards for their creativity in the annual report field.
I love being a bar mitzvah photographer here in NYC, and I love being a photojournalist because there is always such material to photograph at every job I shoot. I love this photo because it shows the bar mitzvah boy surrounded by his grandparents as he reads from the torah, the fact that its natural and un-posed makes it an even nicer picture to me.
When I shoot a corporate event, a family party, a bar mitzvah or a non-profit gala — I cover the story as a photojournalist — by capturing the details, decor, warmth and flow of the event. At my first job as a newspaper photographer at the NJ Morristown Daily Record, I covered who, what, where, why and when in every assignment. This journalistic training shaped me to be the best ny photographer I can!
