Malcolm Gladwell speaks at the Essex House

I am a huge fan of Malcolm Gladwell, I've listened to most of his podcasts and read a few books. He's just an incredible journalist and really delves into the topic and looks at the world from a different angle. I loved photographing him speaking the Essex House today. I would love to be the photographer at any conference that he speaks at. Checkout his podcast Revisionist History.

City Harvest 25th Annual Gala at Cipriani's Midtown

City Harvest 25th Annual Gala at Cipriani's Midtown on April 24, 2018 in New York City

Over $4 million raised in one evening, through silent auction and live auction. Chef Eric Ripert's dinner for 20 with John Legend and Chrissy Teigen went for an astonishing $1.1 million to two separate bidders. The Food rescue organization hosted another amazing evening at the glamorous Cipriani's in midtown.

Conference at the Palace Hotel in New York City

It's always a pleasure to be the photographer at a conference in The Palace Hotel in New York City on Madison Ave. The Hotel does such a nice job with the setup and audio and lighting. It's really an easy place to photograph.

Images shot with a Canon 5D Mark IV, the new Canon 16-35mm F2.8 iii and Sony A9 with the incredible Sony 70-200mm F2.8 Lens.
