Highbridge Voices 2014 Benefit Concert

Highbridge Voices 2014 Benefit Concert in New York City

Last month Highbridge Voices performed its annual benefit concert at Merkin Concert Hall in New York City, and it was a real crowd-pleaser. The sold-out show, hosted by actor Alec Baldwin with a special appearance by Broadway actress Melissa Errico, featured a mix of classic and contemporary songs. The balance of discipline and energy these kids exhibited on stage was truly a pleasure to photograph. I think their stage presence really shines through in the photos below.

I’ve been shooting for Highbridge Voices for four years. The non-profit organization, founded in 1998, provides voice and music theory training, academic tutoring and recreation after school for Bronx students in grades four through twelve. To learn more about the great work they do and see more photos from the 2014 Benefit Concert, visit HighbridgeVoices.com. Also, be sure to check out Melissa Errico’s blog to read about her experience performing in this year’s show.

More summer camp! This week it’s New York Knicks Basketball Camp at Baruch College in Midtown Manhattan, with an appearance by newly acquired player Samuel Dalembert. Dalembert, a nearly 7-foot shot-blocking center who has spent the bulk of his career with the Philadelphia 76ers, arrived from the Dallas Mavericks via a 6-player trade on June 25th.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 88mm, f3.2, 1/800th, ISO 6400.

There was no question that a game of water polo was in order for campers during last week’s stifling summer heat here in New York. I think this shot is a great example of one advantage photography has over video—the ability to examine a precise moment in time (in this case, 1/4000th of a second!).

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200 f2.8 II lens @ 140mm, f3.2, 1/4000th, ISO 200.

Here’s an old-school-looking shot of comedian Dave Chappelle, cigarette in hand, performing at Radio City Music Hall. Chappelle hadn’t headlined a show in New York City in over ten years before his ten-show run on ten consecutive nights at the historic venue.

Another week, another youthful display of talent in New York City. This time it was the 2014 Garden of Dreams Foundation Talent Show at Radio City Music Hall, where kids facing difficulties from illness to poverty performed in the world’s largest indoor theatre. In its 10th year, the show didn’t disappoint. Check out the highlight video on MSG.com!

Highbridge Voices, a non-profit organization that provides voice and music theory training and academic tutoring to students in the Bronx, held its annual benefit concert this past Thursday at Merkin Hall in Manhattan. It was an uplifting and inspiring performance, and if I have to choose one image to sum up the evening, this is it.

Photo tech specs: Canon 5D Mark III camera, 70-200mm f2.8 II lens @ 200mm, f3.5, 1/400th, ISO 1600.

I consider boxing the most difficult sport to photograph, so I was pleased to find this lucky shot amongst my hundreds of photos from Saturday night’s fights at Madison Square Garden. Having trouble pushing my trigger finger a fraction of an inch in the time it takes one of these athletes to throw a punch really makes me appreciate their lightning-quick reflexes. Perhaps these guys would be well-suited to take up boxing photography as a second career?
