Monday night I photographed the Merck Summit for Individualization of Fertility Treatments in the absolutely beautiful Villa Tuscolana in Frascati.  About 250 doctors attended from the Far East – countries including Taiwan, Bangladesh, and Singapore we in attendance.  Overall – a very interesting experience.  My new studio manager, Sofia (there will be a post about this later) covered the event with me.  We sat through two very interesting lectures given by some European doctors – or… they seemed really interesting anyway.  Kind of technical (ok, VERY technical), but from what I gathered there has been some remarkable improvements in fertility treatments when treatment is individualized to the patient.

Oh, and there were a LOT of cameras.  I think every attendant had two!  And peace signs.  Peace signs in every image.  Long story short – we had a lot of fun and cannot wait to shoot a wedding in that location!

As you can see, I’ve found a new plugin for Lightroom (Mogrify) creating these awesome new frames that match my stuff more.  Hope you like the new look of the blog images!
