Marquis Studios / VSA NYC

This is the second year I've photographed the arts advocate and student awards for Marquis Studios, a nonprofit providing arts education services to more than 130 New York City public schools.  The work they do is so important.  It's an honor to work with them!

North Shore Animal League - Empire State Building

North Shore Animal League America is the world's largest no kill animal rescue and adoption organization.  The Empire State Building was lit in their colors to promote the kick off of their Tour For Life which is the world’s largest cooperative mobile adoption event that will span 53 cities in 32 states, covering 26,000 miles and saving the lives of countless animals. 

It was thrilling to capture this special occasion for such an important event!
