Conference Photography in Dallas

Last week I wrapped up a four-day endeavor to photograph BBYO’s International Convention 2014 in Dallas, Texas. BBYO is a Jewish youth organization with the mission of providing Jewish teens with meaningful Jewish experiences. The list of events ran the gamut and required a range of versatility to photograph the variety of scenes that the convention had to offer, including concerts, small group sessions, the convention stage, and 2000 teens spelling out letters on a football field (photographed from 2000 feet in the air).

Photographing the conference was a great experience, and really pushed me to see what I could accomplish in documenting this conference and the experiences of its attendees. Days sometimes lasted 20 hours, with every moment of it offering something new.

Here are some conference photography highlights below.

The first are shots from the sky of 2000 teens spelling out letters on the ground after training in CPR, as well as photos of the field in the distance as we flew into position.

Trey Anastasio at the Fillmore

A long over due post—A couple weeks back I photographed Trey Anastasio, guitarist and vocalist noted for his work with rock band Phish, performing at the Fillmore Silver Spring. The photos were shot for the the Brightest Young Things (full article here).

The concert over all had a real positive energy and chill vibes and was a lot of fun! Below are some shots from the night, but check out the rest and the full story at BYT:
