For the release of her new novel "Finsterau", Steve photographed crime novelist Andrea Schenkel. Her debut novel "Tannöd" was published in 2006 and won a Best National Crime Thriller award in Germany and the Martin Beck Award in Sweden. The English translation is available in the US with the title "The Murder Farm". "Finsterau" was just released in March.
The Netherlands Mission to the United Nations once again hired Happening Photos to make their group photo to commemorate UN Week. This assignment posed some technical challenges because of the very limited space available. We used an unconventional approach to get everything lit evenly left-to-right and front-to-back. And, we used software tools in post-production to give the image a more normal perspective. To get a sense of just how wide the angle of view was, consider that the front row spanned about 18' and was just 5' from the camera.
In March, we photographed the Association of Executive Search Consultants' 2012 Americas Conference at 10 On The Park in New York City. We had photographed their Annual Conference before and were very pleased to be called back again this year. The event was well attended, and the enthusiastic participants were in no hurry to leave at the end. You can view more photos in our "recent work" gallery here.
