2019 Governor's Business Summit

2019 Governor's Business Summit

I was so happy when the Maryland Department of Commerce contacted me for this event again this year. Throughout my career, I’ve had the privilege to photograph many of the presenting speakers including our current Governor Hogan. I was especially looking forward to Anirban Basu (my favorite economist) and Freeman Hrabowski, the president of UMBC. I had never heard MaryBeth Hyland but the three created an absolute powerhouse onstage to round out the day.

I pretty much took Ron to all my favorite spots in Baltimore. He wanted an industrial feel with a mix of casual and professional imagery. I think we nailed it.

I couldn’t help but reminisce back to my own middle school experience as I stood on the precipice of the summer before high school. I somehow felt these kids were way more prepared than I as I listened to their speeches and photographed their awards. The proud smiles, the embarrassed attention, pictures with family and friends. So much excitement packed into a two hour program.

At least twice a year I work for the IMF during their Spring and Annual Meetings. The week of coverage usually consists of 12-16 hour days photographing meetings, speakers, presentations, portraits and events then editing the images on site as quickly as is humanly possible. It is grueling and fast-paced but I enjoy working with their creative team. I’ve become quite the regular, enough so that I now have my own badge and ID number. I can’t post any of the images I’ve taken on assignment for proprietary reasons but here are some behind the scenes shots of my adventures.
