Strayer University was a sponsor of the Act Like A Success Conference presented by Steve Harvey which was held in early March in Reston, VA. Strayer invited me to photograph the event for them.
Steve Harvey was the keynote speaker on the second day. He was funny (as you would expect), inspirational, and motivational. The cornerstone of his presentation is that he believes that everyone has a unique, God given gift that you need to discover and then leverage that gift to achieve happiness and success.
He is great to photograph because he so animated and he has his audience hanging on his every word. I never realized that not that may years ago he was bankrupt and living out of his car. He discovered his gift (comedy) and leveraged that into the success he enjoys today with his own talk show and as the host of Family Feud. He as written a book and has started the Steve Harvey Radical Success Institute ... a busy man.
