NYC special event photographer at ny city party for gay pride celebration photography

It was a rainbow party in NY City this year as many thousands marched, danced and waved to the crowds at the NYC Gay Pride Parade. Tennis legend Billy Jean Kind was one of the grand marshalls this year and I was happy to catch this shot of her as she went by.

Special event photography in NYC is so much fun because whether the assignment is to be a photographer at a birthday party, corporate event or non-profit gala, people are always happy and this makes my job even more fun!

best ny city professional photographer at conference meeting 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.
