There is a huge photography convention going on here in New York, so lots of great talented people are in town. One of my favorite photographers (and ‘virtual mentors’) is southern California-based photographer [b]ecker. [b]ecker let everyone know (via his blog) that he would be in Brooklyn for his birthday and invited anyone who was interested to come along for some lunch and a walking tour of the city. I knew this was a rare and unique opportunity to meet one of my absolute favorite photographers, and also to spend a nice day out with like-minded New Yorkers. We were in for all kinds of goodies – [b]ecker showed up with business partner Marissa, and they handed out Shootsacs and Shootsac covers to all in attendance. We sported the uber-chic and functional photography bags all over the city, taking promotional pictures for Jessica Claire (designer of the Shootsac) to promote “Sacs In The City.” I had a great time and met some awesome people. I am also including some images from other attendees blogs so you can actually see a picture of ME on my blog 🙂
Mmmm… pizza at Grimaldi’s
…or this one, of Steve Depino.
My new friend Meg Belanger just posted this new one of me:
