Manhattan Diary: Fitness, Reader’s Digest and McGarryBowen

October 1st, 2014

by Jillian Pekel For the September edition of portfolio meetings, it was back to Manhattan! Sean, Stacy and I had an early morning departure and after a very quick drive across New Jersey, we were through the tunnel and ready to meet with the women at Fitness Magazine.

High Rise Phoenix

But if you’re Philadelphia-based photographer Chris Sembrot, and you’re shooting in a swanky hotel in downtown Manhattan, that just may be the case.

New York Diary: Marie Claire, More Magazine, Fitness Magazine, NBC

November 26th, 2012

by Maria Luci Looking back, we probably should have expected that driving in New York shortly after a hurricane would be problematic, but on November 15, Paul and I drove in for portfolio reviews blissfully unaware of the traffic horrors awaiting us. Things were going smoothly until we started seeing signs directing us past the Lincoln Tunnel, then the bridges. Eventually, we had to enter …

Arriving in Manhattan early, we had plenty of time to figure out how to turn left in a city filled with “no turns” signs. Once we finally found our way—breaking a few …
