Fall Photo Week!

Well, I'm off to the beach this weekend...I'll probably just admire it from the warmth of our car but we're trying to squeeze in as many weekends out in the Hamptons before it gets way too cold.

But, if you are lucky enough to be in New York City and you love photography, then be sure to check out all of the wonderful events in celebration of Fall Photo Week and the Photo Plus Expo! I'm definitely hitting up a bunch of these when I return during the week. You will not be disappointed.
