Last week I attended The Hamels Foundation Diamond & Denim Gala. I was so touched by the trust they put in me by allowing me to shoot for the first time inside the dinner portion, and in the VIP area. That’s definitely something I’ve strived to achieve in the last 5 years since I began seriously shooting events, to be trusted enough on which photos, and stories need to be told. (To be the Patrick McMullen of Philadelphia).

So it was a no brainer for me to stay awake for the 36 hrs to get the stories out: Philly Mag,, make an appearance on Fox 29, send photos to my wire-service, and prepare a story that will be in Us Magazine August 26.  In each outlet I offered something different, stories and photos. Oh I screwed up on Fox 29, John Mayberry Jrs’ shoes were black with yellow LV.

Here are a few links to those articles. I was a little tired when I was on Fox 29. I wished I had remembered to mentioned all the good deeds that the Hamels Foundation has done for our city schools, and how in September the first phase of their school in Malawi will be launching. Plus Cole Hamels pitching clinic is coming up in November.

And I have a shot in Molly Eichel’s column today.
