One of my favorite regular clients is LIVE hotel and casino. I am lucky enough to be called their “house photographer” which basically means I do a little of everything. Along with executive portraits, I also work with their chefs and beverage staff to photograph their beautiful drink and food specials. Often I will photograph their staff for various publications as well as marketing images to recruit new team members. The best is when I am booked to photograph their various concerts and shows.
I have been photographing a lot of bands for the new Rams Head Center Stage at Maryland Live Casino. Recently Bret Michaels from the band Poison played to a sold out crowd. It was a fun night and I think I shot some great images. Photography for bands. All images copyright Amy Jones.
I spent Sunday at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure shooting corporate event photography. Maryland Live Casino was a sponsor of the race and it was amazing to photograph the event for them. I couldn’t believe the amount of people that went from the starting gate to the horizon in this photo. What a great event!
This last month has been filled with mostly event photography. One of my regular jobs is with Rams Head Center Stage. I was lucky enough to photograph The Fabulous Thunderbirds last night! They were amazing to watch and of course, sounded great. If you haven’t been to Rams Head Center Stage at MD Live Casino…check it out!
This past week was filled with events at Bucknell University. Homecoming at Bucknell involved so many different activities that needed two of us to cover all the event photography. They had BBQ’s for staff, a huge Gala, a memorial service for a beloved professor and a wonderful arts evening of various performers. Feats Inc. built an amazing tent and covered the buildings in lights to make the gala night extra dramatic in photos.
I recently started doing a lot of event photography of live bands. Photography for events can be challenging since you are dealing with constantly changing lighting and usually a lot of movement. The last two shows I was lucky enough to shoot were for Diamond Rio and The Spin Doctors. Photography for events. Photography of live bands. Event photography
I worked for one of my favorite companies today. Goldwell/KPSS makes some of the most amazing hair colors and hair care products on the planet and they are based right here in Baltimore Maryland. Their Color Zoom challenge is open to stylists all over the world to showcase the newest products and styles. This amazing group of industry professionals was gathered at Baltimore’s new Four Seasons Hotel to judge some of this years North American entries. I was thrilled to meet Maggie Mulhern from Modern Salon magazine. She was just featured in an episode of Style Network’s own Jerseylicious.
If you live in the Maryland/DC area I’m sure you’ve heard about the opening of the MD Live! Casino. Earlier this year they opened their doors to take job applications…they brought over 2000 new jobs to the Baltimore area. I was there when the doors opened, some folks waiting in line for hours to apply. Every news station was there to cover the event. In about 1 hour, the doors open for the first time to customers, good luck all!
Princeton NJ has a new hospital. To call it beautiful and state-of-the-art doesn’t do it justice! I was lucky enough to spend a few days with the architects, donors, doctors and new employees while they celebrated it’s opening. Feats Inc did an amazing job with this event.
