PHOTOGRAPHS FROM ALT DESIGN SUMMIT

Ah, yes. It’s something I look forward to every year. Alt Design Summit. Now in its 5th year. I’ve been there all five years.

Year five. I loved being there. Seeing old friends (some of them as old as 35!) and some new friends, too.

Year five. Good times. It looked like this.

Last week, two of the funnest people you’ll ever meet, threw a party. Thanks to Alison and Susan for hiring me to photograph the good times.

Susan wanted to throw a Freshly Picked holiday party to celebrate a fantastic year. And, she asked her friend Alison to style it, come up with the theme, and go nuts party planning.

The Glam Lumberjack Jam was born. And my, oh my, what a night.

Alt NYC 2013 – A visual summary

by justin on June 25, 2013

in bloggers, Travel

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.

Color Me Katie

by justin on January 28, 2013

in bloggers, portraits

In the nicest way possible, Katie Sokoler made me feel old. Old, as in, having fun took effort, instead of something that just happened naturally, because if you have fun naturally, that way, life is so much, uh… funner. And for someone that describes themselves as a professional fun maker, it’s not surprising that when I asked her if I could take her picture, instead of just sitting in a chair (what I probably would have come up with), she wanted to jump on the bed or throw around some balloons. It was so great to watch the way she thought about taking pictures. She’s a photographer herself, and a very clever one. She took a look around the room and came up with possibility after possibility.

Clever and creative, and most of all, FUN, meet Katie.

Late last night I returned from photographing a fantastic wedding in Mexico at the Sensatori Azul resort. Paradise, really. I was there for four days with a full schedule every day of relaxing (well, except for the day of the wedding).

He’s a teaser picture. Hot, don’t you think? I’ll make of full post of their wedding pictures very soon.

Alt Summit Party on the Roof

by justin on October 11, 2012

in bloggers, Events

One of the great things about the folks that put together Alt Design Summit is that they know how to throw a party. I remember at one point in the evening, as the sun cast long shadows over Manhattan, and there we were on the roof of the offices of Marth Stewart, I thought to myself, “there isn’t anywhere I’d rather be right now than right here, in this town, with these people, photographing this party.”

In August I went to New York City to photograph the Alt Summit Conference. It was held in the Martha Stewart offices. It was, of course, lovely. Breakfast, speakers, lunch, speakers, a surprise visit from Martha Stewart, speakers, then a fancy party on the roof.

The night before Alt Summit in New York City this summer, there was a small dinner party at a warehouse in Brooklyn. It was called Sunday Suppers, which is a very cool idea started by the lovely photographer Karen Mordechai, and in fact, it was her studio were the whole thing took place. Here’s where you can read more about Sunday Suppers.

I want to move to New York, just so I can hang out with Mara and Danny more often. These two will put even the crabbiest of grouches in a very good mood.

Their very popular blog, A Blog About Love, chronicles their own love story and also gives advice on how to keep the fire burning.

I’m so glad we got to spend and afternoon together, Mara and Danny. Let’s do it again some time. And thanks for the pizza!

Ania from The New Diplomats Wife

I’ve met two Ania’s in my life. Both awesome, both from Poland. The first one I actually met in Poland. The second one, pictured here, I met last January in Salt Lake City when she attended the Alt Summit Conference. She’s so giving and caring and because she’s genuinely interested in helping people out, she helped me line up a wedding I’ll be shooting in Mexico in a few months. Now that’s sweet.

We had a good time hanging out for a bit in Manhattan, then we made our way to Brooklyn where we both happened to be going to the same party.

Ania and her husband lead very interesting lives and you can read about it on her blog The New Diplomat’s Wife.

I’m honored that I was asked to photograph Stephanie and Christian Nielson for the cover of their soon to be released book, Heaven is Here. It’s an amazing story. I’ve read it, and I’ll admit, I cried. A lot.

I just don’t know what to say about this book, about Stephanie and Christian, about the writing, other than, you must read this book.

And it was an extra honor to have my photograph on the cover since my wife Amy collaborated with Stephanie to write this amazing story.

Heaven Is Here is available April 3, 2012 from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and anywhere good books are sold.
