Show Your Best Moments
Conference and Event Photography
Capture your event in action
Photography from your conferences and events shows your business in its element and can be vital for your marketing, social media, and internal purposes.
I have been a New York City event and conference photographer for nearly 20 years, working with businesses and clients of all types. I specialize in capturing smiles in the stuffiest of events, light in the darkest of places, and responding and sending photos quickly.
Please feel free to email me directly to explain your needs, and I will be happy to respond quickly and send you a quote.

Experience and Background
I have worked with a huge variety of companies and events through a range of conditions, including photographing tennis being played on a full tennis court installed in the Grand Hyatt ballroom for the U.S. Tennis Association, Facebook’s IPO event in the Whale Room of the Natural History Museum, as well as in many terribly lit, tiny conference rooms.
For 20 years, I’ve felt privileged to be a fly on the wall for so many fascinating events and conferences.
I try to anticipate your needs based on my prior experience so that you don’t have to worry about the photography.
Large and Small NYC Events, Meetings, and Business Conferences
I photograph events and conferences of all sizes. I can be a fly on the wall during a quiet speech, and I can walk around capturing happy group shots.
I use flash when needed, and I know when to turn it off so that it is not intrusive to the environment of the event.
Whether your conference takes place in a large ballroom or in a tiny office, we will get close, engaged, and enthusiastic images. I pride myself in staying out of the way, while still capturing the action.
Same Day, Next Day Photos
We live in a social media world and I specialize in returning top quality photos fast, so you can promote your event right away.
I can send top selects during or after events, by the next day, and every full set of images is always sent within a week and often faster.
I take my workflow and post-production work extremely seriously and will create clear and beautiful photographs even in the darkest of venues.
Please let me know if you have specific turnaround needs and we will make it happen.
Natural and Comfortable Images
“How the HELL do you capture them laughing and smiling?!??! It’s never been done before. Great stuff!”
Email quote from Janet Hanasik, Manager, USTA Marketing.
This has been my favorite email of all time. No matter how serious the meeting, as long as there are a few light moments, I will manage to get you some smiling, engaged images from your events.
I will certainly capture those serious moments, but the relaxed moments can be more elusive, and they are always what I make sure to come back with.
If you are interested in potentially working together, please email me or feel free to contact me at 917-494-6712.
I will be happy to answer any of your questions and can help you figure out the type of imagery that you need to create. If possible, please include as much detail as possible in your email about your needs, as this will help me provide you with an accurate quote.
