This year I had the pleasure of being hired as the official photographer for the 3rd annual Black and White Gala hosted at Medalta Potteries. This black-tie gala is the largest fundraising event of the year for Medalta, and raises money for their artistic, community, and education programming. Some of the most prominent members of the local business community were in attendance, along with our newly elected mayor.
For my role, I was tasked with capturing the general atmosphere and energy of the event. From the decor, to the main room, to the silent and live auctions, and the on-goings behind the scenes, I was really happy with how much variety I came away with at the end of the night. The 3D printer video I created for Medalta was screened that evening, and I also donated one of my framed prints for their silent auction (which went on to sell above asking price). All and all, it was a lot of fun and a great event to be connected to. Here's a small sampling of my photographs from the gala.
