ICR is a strategic communications company that helps business’s with their branding, public relations and investor relations. Each year they hold a conference in Orlando Florida where companies tell investors and analysts about what they did this past year and what their future plans are.

My job as the photographer was to unobtrusively capture all of the sessions and provide ICR with professional photos for documenting the conference and future marketing use. The toughest part for me was making sure we got every speaker and making sure the color correction was right. ICR has gorgeous displays of all sorts of colors. It is really something to see and to hear. I listened as much as I can and the CEO’s of the companies were so inspiring to listen to.

Each night ICR would have a celebration at the hotel where the executives would relax and have fun. I even got some great pictures of the great OZ Pearlman perform. Just amazing.

Project return hired me to photograph their fundraiser “gather around the table” This is my 3rd year shooting this event and I must tell you that I was very inspired by it. Project return gives homeless girls in Fairfield county a chance to live a normal life by housing them and helping them find work and mentoring them.

This event which was held at Shorehaven Golf Club in Norwalk featured 12 designers who created a table setting that over 250 women bid to win the setting. The bids are purchased during the cocktail hour and at the end of the luncheon, they raffle off the table settings. It is truly brilliant. Not only do you have a chance to win a designers table, you also get really nice take home gifts.

Consider going next year, tickets sell out quickly!

This was a shoot of Summer Night, a fundraising benefit for Project Return of Homes with Hope, an organization who focuses on helping the homeless. Their mission is to support the homeless and those at-risk of homelessness in the communities we serve by providing food, safe emergency shelter, permanent supportive housing, and the case management needed to achieve a more independent and self-sufficient life. This was a wonderful event to photograph, the crowd was happy, and everyone was focusing on helping a good cause. The event was held at The Saugatuck Rowing Club in Westport and was catered by The Boathouse which also serves as  the rowing club’s restaurant.

My father had a heart attack while I was pitching for the Westport Little League championship. I was 12 years old and miraculously, my father survived the heart attack. The American Heart Association Walk/Run brings awareness to a disease that effects many people. Each year The AHA has two of these run/walks, there is one in the spring and one in the fall. Each time, they honor two survivors of heart attacks and there stories are very compelling. Here are only a few images of the walk. For more information about joining, just click on AHA above.

White Birch Paper hired me to photograph their executives for their website and for promotional uses. They sent me a sample of a portrait of the CEO and asked if I could shoot similar to the image provided. I was very excited to see the image they provided me with was photographed by Patrick Demarchelier, my favorite photographer of all time and my biggest inspiration.
