Tampa Event Photographer :: Steve Forbes & Professor John Prevas

Being a professional photographer certainly has given me some wonderful opportunities and have met some amazing people along the way. Last week I had the pleasure of photographing an event at the InterContinental Tampa that the Rotary Club of Clearwater Beach put on benefiting Heartbeat International. It was an evening with Steve Forbes & Professor John Prevas. Based on their New York Times bestselling book Power Ambition Glory the authors discussed how lessons on leadership from the ancient world have relevance today. John Prevas discussed fascinating leaders from Persia, Greece, Carthage and Rome, outlining their strengths and also the flaws in their character which led to their inevitable demise. Steve Forbes elaborated upon the lessons learned from those figures drawing parallels to modern leaders in today’s corporate and political worlds with a Q&A that followed. Below are a few images from this wonderful event.

Tampa Photographer :: Ella Bing Bow Ties :: Spring Collection Photoshoot

As many of you know  I love wearing bow ties and it has become a big part of my style and how I roll on a day to day basis.  So when I was contacted  by Ella Bing Bow Ties and commissioned photograph their Spring collection I was thrilled to death to be apart of their project! Ella Bing is a small bow tie company based in Tampa, Florida who centers their business around a few things: quality, presentation, attention to detail, and customer service. I can attest to this because when I bought my first "Woody" the craftsmanship and presentation box that it came in blew me away! Needless to say I had to buy a few more. :) Ella Bing's products range from wood bow ties, to lapel flowers and are all hand made. I highly encourage you to visit their website to learn more about their amazing story on how they started the company and to see more of their epically awesome bow ties!
