I always love photographing production stills for off broadway theater productions and I'm especially happy to help smaller theaters like Urban Stages. I use a remote camera to photograph straight shots of the stage to document the lighting and stage design and then move around the front row to capture the actors in more detail

A Chinese company called Yintech recently hired me to photograph a commercial that they ran on the facade of Nasdaq in Times Square. The advert ran twice an hour and had 46 portraits presented during the complete commercial that was split into two 30 second slots. They needed video and stills shot of the entire campaign. that ran both on Nasdaq and Reuters during the day and at night.
Jacob Javitz must have a lot of very tight restrictions on exhibition setup and vendor management, because clients are always surprised that I'm allowed to work as a photographer at the Javitz Center. You don't have to be part of a Union to work as a photographer inside of the Jacob Javitz.

Chinese company Hexindai ring the opening bell and celebrate their IPO at Nasdaq on November 3, 2017 in New York City (Photo by Ben Hider) After many years of being the house photographer at the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) it was great to photograph the IPO process at Nasdaq and see how the first trade happens when there is no trading floor. It's quite an organized and civilized process that Nasdaq handle perfectly.

I photograph a lot of amazing conferences and meetings for so many different brands across the country and always try to setup a remote camera or additional wireless camera to act as another photographer from a fixed angel. The remote camera setup allows me to move around more for different and often more creative angels, while I can still guarantee that we have straight images of the stage and speaker setup. I'm often hired by the people who designed and created the stage so I have to document their work as well as photograph the meeting or conference in progress. Often hiding a remote camera can help create an image that wouldn't be possible from a standard photographers perspective, and I like to mount cameras on monopods to reach different angles.
