Friday March 4th, 2011, I had the pleasure of photographing the Philadelphia Convention Center Expansion. My assignment was to capture the the Architectural space of the ribbon cutting ceremony for this new $787 million dollar convention center. Which makes it the 14th largest in the nation and the largest exhibit space in the northeast. This Center resides in center city philadelphia close to all major attractions and hotels and just down the street from City Hall the nations largest municipal building.
As an Architectural photographer with experience capturing events. I was commisioned to provide an overall view of this event thru its architecture. I was also commissioned to take a large group portrait in the New Terrace ballroom which is larger than a football field. If you look closely you'll see Rocky and Ben Franklin in the group.
