Being a special event photographer in NY City is never boring… its usually quite fun! Corporate event planners create interesting and entertaining programming that their guests will enjoy, providing great material for photojournalistic photos and social media buzz.
This photo was taken for an international financial firm that engages its guests with the best chess players in the world. In this photo, Magnus Carlson and Gary Kasparov enjoyed a challenging but enjoyable game of chess. What made this match even more special is that the guests actually coached each grandmaster throughout the game.
After the event which was jam-packed, the grandmasters signed chessboards and gave autographs to everyone… while at the same time, reviewing the match’s strategic moves with each other. This NY City professional photographer was left wishing she had learned to play chess, but its never too late!
