July 28, 2014 At this New York trade show/career fair, recruiters from international brands, top design houses and start-ups looking to hire professionals at every career stage and for all roles in the gem and jewelry industry gave presentations, participated in a panel discussion, and provided one-on-one coaching. GIA hired me as their event photographer for the event. The cavernous rooms in the lower level of the Jacob Javits center don’t have great lighting for photographs, so I always bring my own, to supplement and improve on what’s there while remaining as unobtrusive as possible.

I was hired again this year to photograph NYU’s School of Continuing and Professional Studies’ graduations (undergrad and grad, in separate ceremonies). Another company was hired to do the formal, here-I-am-with-my-diploma portraits. My job was to capture the spirit of the event—and the main presenters—in candid photography, plus a few group photos.
