IDEA Personal Trainer Institute - Bethesda, MD

I believe this is the seventh year that I have photographed the IDEA Personal Trainer Institute that is held every year in the Washington, DC area. 

Personal trainers, fitness professionals, owners and managers: learn what it takes to truly take their business and training skills to new heights. IDEA Personal Trainer Institute is where industry leaders show how they secure client and business success. From fitness assessment and program design to social media marketing and staff management.

This year it was held at the Marriott Conference Center in Bethesda, MD.  It was nice to photograph the event in a new facility.  

We setup a small studio in one of the hotel conference rooms every year to produce images that we hope will end up on the cover of next year's brochure and also to to be used for other marketing purposes.  Most of the time during the two days that I am photographing the event I am in live sessions capturing the action as it happens. 

GRAND OPENING - Henry's Sweet Retreat - Bethesda, MD.

Henry's Sweet Retreat is a candy market and dessert bar in Bethesda, MD.  Henry's is a modern version of a traditional candy store, plus much more. 

They had their Grand Opening on November 4, 2016.  The owners, Patty and Tom Craver, asked me to come by and photograph the store, the colorful candy, the baked goods, and the festivities.
