Otterbox : Media Event & Fashion Week

I'm pretty far behind on posting photos and I need to make more an effort to change that and update it more regularly. With that said, I'd like to share a couple of events I've shot for a wonderful PR Company, Access Communications, and their client which some of you may be familiar with, Otterbox. I was fortunately enough shoot their Media Event at The Glasshouses, an amazing space with floor to ceiling windows that fill the entire room with beautiful natural light.  I hung back and took mostly candid interactions as well as a few product shots that were displayed throughout the room followed by a Step & Repeat wall for guest leaving with their bags of goodies. 

Less than 2 weeks after the Media Event shoot, I received an e-mail asking me to photograph a Runway show during NYC's Fashion Week as a model walked in a dress made out of Otterbox Screen Protectors. Aside from photographing the wonderful team from Access interacting with the attendees, I was thrown into the belly of the photog-pit, an eye opening experience to say the least. If you've never shot from a pit, let me just say that you need to expect the unexpected: everything from the friendliest photographers to the meanest, most vulgar and one with the worst case of B O I've ever experienced in my time on this planet. I'm still fully convinced that he used his stench as a way to get more free space around him (oh the lengths people will go)

Gotham Bar & Grill : 30th Anniversary

New York's famous Gotham Bar & Grill celebrated its 30th year anniversary on April 28th and I was invited to be the floor photographer while Dave Sanders manned the Step & Repeat. I can't claim to be in-the-know when it comes to the celebrities of the food industry but even I recognized a few names that were present. Kate Krader, Food & Wine's Restaurant Editor, kicked off the ceremonies followed by a hilarious roast of Chef Alfred Portale by none other than Chef Tom Colicchio 

OK, I think that's enough name dropping for now. Please check out the photos below and be sure to scroll through 2 galleries at the bottom from the Industry After Party.
