This year I was selected as one of the four photographers to contribute to the Day in the Life of WPPI annual publication. The book is produced by GraphiStudio, and includes behind the scenes coverage of the Trade Show, print competition and awards show from four different photographer’s perspectives. I worked closely with Michelle Kersten to come up with a concept to differentiate this book from previous editions. She has been brilliant to work with and I am looking forward to publication.
I wanted to thank Canon for graciously allowing me to use their G7 model for those times I didn’t want to carry my 5d with all my lenses. The camera is compact, allows complete control with manual adjustments, and has a10 Megapixel sensor. Problem with letting me borrow? Now, I need to go out and buy my own!
Recently, I was selected to be a speaker at WPPI Vegas 2007. I feel incredibly honored. I am really excited about the class and can’t wait to share everything I have learned since starting my business.
Below is title and class description:
Breaking into the Competitive Market of Wedding Photography
This class will highlight my experience as an emerging wedding photographer in New York City. Topics to be covered include: establishing a name and brand, creating and managing your business, pricing structure and product availability, networking, cost-effective marketing, utilizing top national and international publications and gallery spaces, balancing work and personal life, transferring experience from other aspects of photography, and booking brides on the spot during your initial consultation.

I hope to see some of you there!
On June 8, 2oo6 we covered the NASDAQ Closing Bell Ceremony and the annual Reuters Remix Redux Party. Our images of the events graced the Reuters screen (the largest digital display in the world) and the NASDAQ screen (towering 21 stories). Images included VIPs, party guests and entertainers, such as Michelle Branch of the Wreckers. These images also appeared in the New York Times on the following Monday (Download ny_times_article_2.pdf) and the July WPPI newsletter.
Sharon Harris, the director of marketing at Reuters, was so pleased with the photographs that she decided to publish her first book using only our images. The book is scheduled to go to print this week and looks fantastic! I would like to thank my second photographer, Eric Kragh, and my production specialist, Justin Heiman, for doing such an incredible job. I couldn’t have done it without them.
