I sometimes lose track of the range of assignments I get, and 2014 included a range I hadn’t paid much attention to until I looked through my shoot catalog for the year.

Floral arrangement and gift boxes
A floral arrangement and gift boxes, for Trellis Fine Florals.

The year kicked off with studio catalog shoots for Trellis Fine Florals at NoHo Productions. I also shot their arrangements at charitable events that included Surgeons for Hope and the Junior League.

Corporate

Purchase, NY – 31 October 2014. Awa Nymabi, left, and Kaltrina Celaj of the Woodlands High School team. Woodlands High School went on to place second in the 2014 competition. The Business Skills Olympics was founded by the African American Men of Westchester, is sponsored and facilitated by Morgan Stanley, and is open to high school teams in Westchester County.

I had a number of assignments for Morgan Stanley, all the kind of storytelling that I love, and which ranged from a profile of a financial advisor who volunteered helping pre-school children in South Africa to a full day covering the High School Business Skills Olympics at Morgan Stanley’s Westchester campus. The Business Olympics was co-sponsored by the African American Men of Westchester, and it was great to see 16 teams from high schools working out and presenting business case studies.

I shoot for Flashes of Hope when I can, a non-profit that provides portraits for young cancer patients. These shoots are always fun for me, the kids, and their families.

And now on to 2015! So far, assignments for advertising, corporate, and performances are in the pipeline. Get in touch to put your photography on my calendar.
