ChatterArtists of the Month October 2008

Hello everyone!
So last month, it was NY Fashion Week in Bryant Park as well Advertising week in New York.
This month, as many of you already know, is one of the busiest times in the Photography industry.
We have Photo Plus Expo at the Javitt’s Center and the Lucie Awards to name but a few…
Also this month from Thursday, October 9th – Sunday, October 12th, 2008 we have
The NY Wine & Food Festival . This is hosted by the Food Network Channel located over by the Chelsea Markets.
Go to http://www.nycwineandfoodfestival.com for tickets and more information.
So I thought it would be fun to showcase some of my clients who shoot food this month – and here they are:
