An Evening with Annie Leibovitz
As a event photographer in New York City, I get to photograph many different people from all walks of life. Today, I had the opportunity to meet and photograph Annie Leibovitz for the Autism Speaks Gala at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. She’s been a true inspiration of mine for some time now so when I had my portrait session with her I was quite nervous. Truthfully, I haven’t been nervous taking a photograph in a very long time but in this case it was understandable. Those of you who have seen me work know that I try to be very charismatic and friendly to bring the best out of people so the images are natural. From a technical aspect, I do things a bit differently as well. This difference completely intrigued Annie. While Annie is used to the big budget productions for cover shoots for Vogue and Vanity Fair, she was completely fascinated with my lighting set-up at Cipriani Wall St and how I came up with such great shots. During my session with her, I ended teaching her my unique style. While I wish it was the other way around, it was such a blast and I had a great experience. Below are some of the shots from the evening.
