Diner en Blanc, People, Table Settings, Insider Info & Media Blitz with Videos & Photos & My Media Links
By now you should all be familiar with Diner en Blanc, no doubt after the amazing media blitz that happened last week especially on Friday. With 2500 confirmed people for the pop-up dinner party, Diner en Blanc engaged 4 photographers to cover the event as photojournalists.
We were all given different assignments. Since I photograph people for a living, that was my focus. I love what I do: Get people, stories and for the most part get names so that the organization could send out the 30 – 50 shots Diner en Blanc requested from me to send to them for distribution. Plus I took photos for my two media outlets. Hopefully you’ll find yours in one of my outlets, if not at some point I will be putting some of the other 400 shots on my FB page Philly ChitChat or sending them to Diner en Blanc for their use.
Crazy dedications to get to the location. Throughout the night I would ask people was it worth it, not one person said no. Many said they’d do it again next year.
Nice spread for the press. Over 55 bloggers and press people were invited to attend the event, most having done pre-press and a few doing follow up stories. I think that Aversa PR has tapped into something. I know we’re friends, but I have never seen as much coverage for an event, and so much afterwards too. My Philly.com column went up at 3PM and immediately shot to #1 most popular story by 5PM. (The comments can be son interesting too.)
I did get this though, if anyone can tell me how to unattach the videos I would love it. It drives me crazy they run into each other.
Everyone was responsible for removing their own trash too ie see see the trash bag she’s carrying as they leave the event.
