Event Photography for 2.Oakland Spring Mixer

2.Oakland hosted a spring mixer at The Port Workspaces on April 21st bringing together individuals who are excited to create a thriving tech and innovation community for Oakland and the East Bay. Their events and programs support existing tech companies as well as organizations who would like to relocate to the area.

I contributed my event photography services for the event. Click on a photo to see a larger image. The album is also available to view on Flickr.

 

Event photos of the Hungry Tiger Street Festival in Union Square

I doubt I could possibly mention enough how much I love living so close to Union Square in Somerville. It’s somehow managed to stay a “real” neighborhood with an emphasis on local first.

I doubt I could possibly mention enough how much I love living so close to Union Square in Somerville. It’s somehow managed to stay a “real” neighborhood with an emphasis on local first — and there are always fun and interesting events happening thanks to groups like Somerville Local First, Union Square Main Streets and the Somerville Arts Council. SAC hosted the first Hungry Tiger Street Festival on Saturday night — turning Union Square Plaza into a swarm of people, street food and music — and the enormous tiger made out of wire mesh and decorated colorful plastic sheets.

Event photos of OUTSPOKEN 2011: Queer Women of Color & Trans POC spoken-word and live music showcase

I shot event photography at OUTSPOKEN, part of Queer Women of Color and Friends annual QWOC Week.

Letta Neely at OUTSPOKEN

Last year I tagged along with friends to an event called OUTSPOKEN at Precinct. It was part of Boston’s Queer Women of Color and Friends’ “QWOC Week.” I’ll confess, whenever I heard the words “spoken word” it’s not something I would generally seek out for an event.  But OUTSPOKEN was good, very good. I learned about London Bridgez — and now when someone says “spoken word” I’m not so quick to judge. I happened to have my camera with me last year and shot a bunch of photos.

The 2011 event happened this week. Browse the event photo gallery of OUTSPOKEN 2011 photos I shot on August 4th at Club Choices in Somerville.

New photo: woman in a tree watching a performance at HONK!

The 5th Annual HONK! Festival
Saturday, October 4, 2010

I shot this photo at the HONK! Festival while wandering around checking out the various performances. Perched up in the tree, she had a great view of the street band playing in front of a big crowd.

Pink Yellow Rose on Newbury Street

[tweetmeme] I’ve got a new website for my work as a freelance Boston photographer at Sooz Photography. There are more photos to add but you can wade through what’s there now — an assortment of photos capturing the world around me: animals, flowers, events, people, conferences, life in Boston, concerts, awesomeness, etcetera. What started out as a hobby taking concert photos for several years has transformed into work as a freelance photographer.

Photo Prints, Merchandise and Digital Downloads

Many of the photos are available in high-resolution format that can be purchased as prints, merchandise and digital downloads. Like flowers? This photo of a pink and yellow rose on Newbury Street would make a cool print.
