Finding good candid moments between people at corporate events is one of the greatest challenges, but well worth the effort. The images of speakers and VIP's usually get the most usage, but candids can give a great view of the atmosphere at an event. The best moments usually happen quickly at the beginning or end of a conversation, so it's important to pay attention to what's happening.
Over the years I've photographed countless protests and rally's, in DC they happen very frequently. There are often small demonstrations at a specific embassy or government building. The protests that get the most attention are the large marches on the National Mall. In the recent years, the number of large actions has increased both in frequency and media coverage.
This year was the end of an era for the Corcoran School at the George Washington University. The last class of students who started at The Corcoran before the takeover by GW graduated. In true Corcoran fashion, they had their own graduation ceremonies separate from the rest of GW, and made it a unique event. Each student received a blank "Artistic License" and chose which professors and other students would sign it.
I recently had the opportunity to make a few portraits of Ian Bremmer that would accompany an interview posted on the Workday blog. We shot the portraits on the balcony of the Hay-Adams hotel overlooking the White House and Washington Monument.
I spent a little time photographing in southern California earlier this summer. The weather was more overcast than I was expecting, but the diffused light was great for shooting on the sailboat.
