The sun and heat last week was oppressive in NYC but with the help of my crew and cooperative subjects we were able to still shoot on Thursday for this years campaign. The pictures don’t show the 100 degree temperature, it’s seems like an oasis. Pastor Phil from Trinity Church on 9th St and Avenue B, let us use his roof for the shoot. Many thanks go out to him and his organization for their support. We had lots of cold water and good will from our volunteers. These portraits get used for the annual gala invitation, gala program and posters at the event. Please join us in October at Chelsea Piers for the gala or donate to an organization that really goes to bat for the youth of our city.

Over the years, it has been a pleasure to get to know the youth in the program and see the progress they have made through hard work. To see more of my images from the past years go to the AGYP website. Thank you to all who helped make this years pictures happen.
