I went to New York City to photograph Alt Design Summit. It’s a real great conference and even though this year, the New York edition doubled in size from last year, it still sold out in minutes and crashed the server a couple times as hundreds of bloggers clamored for a ticket.
The night before the conference, Amy and I went to at Karen Mordeechai’s amazing studio for a Sunday Supper, sponsored by Bing.
Gaby, (above) told me she was kind of a big deal. I believe her.
So, that was dinner the night before.
The next day, Alt Summit began and it was held at the Martha Stewart offices.
This guy sells amazing pickles.
Grace Bonney was the very inspiring opening keynote.
And then, she walked in.
Well, how about that.
Closing keynote from Garance Doré.
Then, there was a great party.
Here’s Aida Mollenkamp (above). I met her in San Francisco in 2010. I like her. She’s great.
And here’s who started Alt. Sara. Oh, my goodness, this one is sharp as a tack. Pictured here with her husband Steve. These are two of my favorite people that I know.
Here’s Gabby Blair from Designmom.com and co-founder of Alt, pictured above with some of her blog contributors, (including my favorite writer, Amy Hackworth), and pictured below, looking smashing.
She told me she wasn’t going to be there, so when I saw Nat the Fat Rat there (above) I was thrilled.
Alt photography sponsored by Atly. Look for a portrait class I’ll be teaching on there in about a month.
