October--Somewhere in Maryland--DCP Productions with the GEICO Caveman and NHL Commentators Greg Loughlin and Joe Beninati. Two commercials shot in two days. "Blindsided" shot in an arena with a crowd of spectators, the Caveman and between period activities. "Warning" was made at a broadcast facility sportdesk with Loughlin and Beninati. Long days but fun working with a talented cast and crew.
October 25--Ellicott City, Maryland--An assignment for SUCCESS Magazine, Mike Lawrence owner of Havana Banana Breads. Photographed at The Breadery.

With an event with several hundred participants and covering a wide area in the city. We had a team of 5 photographers at this event, my post was to cover the start/finish line. Thus the EKS banner in my most of my photos.
October 24--Somewhere in Maryland--Not my usual forte, but for friends how can I resist. A Halloween Theme Wedding, perfect autumn day, great food and friends. A lot of work, sweated a lot but the memories are worth it.

August 28-31, 2010--The Broadmoor, Colorado Springs, CO--Pamela Bailey addressing The Grocery Manufacturers Association annual Executive Conference. Representatives of the leading food manufacturers and their retail trading partners as well as government, business and academic leaders attend to discuss trends impacting consumers, the industry and the economy.
Douglas Conant, President and CEO, Campbell Soup Company in a panel discussion entitled "The Leadership Imperative: Sharing the Vision Throughout the Company."

Dr. John Quelch, Professor of business administration, Harvard Business School, leading the discussion: Tesco's Entry into the US Market.
(Tech notes: All images shot in available light, as provided by the hotel. This year we worked with the Broadmoor to add some spot lights. Thus the illumination was better in several of the rooms. However, it still is amazing to me how my digital cameras can get a good exposure along with processing each file in Photoshop. This workflow provides quality images for all types of publishing usage.)
