2016 has been a very good year, which I hope means the economy is on a major uptick. The largest area of growth for my business is "Special Events," for Corporations, Non-Profit Organizations and Hard News. These events are covered from cocktails to closing ceremonies. I, and members of my team, have served as personal photographers for events with 25-14,000 guests locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. These functions include the annual AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington D.C., as well as AIPAC events in Chicago, Cleveland and Michigan, events for Bendix Commercial Vehicle Systems in Elyria, OH, Bowling Green, KY, Houghton/Hancock, MI, Huntington, Indiana and Greenville, SC, and events for The Smart Business Network in Cleveland, Columbus and Cincinnati.
I personally have been assigned the sole responsibility of photography for private events for President George H.W. Bush, President Bill Clinton, President George W. Bush, President Barack Obama and Defense Minister of Israel Ehud Barrack in Washington D.C. and other locations across the United States. AIPAC Policy Conference with 14,000 attendees, Other Special Event responsibility have included all 'Major" events for The Jewish Federation of Cleveland, National Council of Jewish Women/Cleveland Sector, Israel Bonds, The Maltz Museum, The Mt. Sinai Foundation and The United Way. Other Events Include: ABC/Disney Stations, NBC Sports, CBS Television Network, Discovery Channel, History Channel, Entertainment Tonight, Cleveland Clinic Foundation.

We also cover smaller events including Israel Bonds, NCJW (National Council of Jewish Women), The Jewish Federation of Cleveland, Montefiore, Menorah Park, The Maltz Family Foundation, The Gathering Place, United Church of Christ, Medical Mutual, Tri-C, and The Cleveland Pops.
In Addition to Shooting Stills, Marc Golub Photography Can Now Provide Primary & Secondary Video in 4K and 1080p for Your Project, Event or Celebration in Cleveland or Northeast Ohio. Rates Available on Request .If your still project has a video component, you might consider having me shoot some footage while in your facility. The additional cost may be nominal as I'm already there doing stills.
Social Media has been a major tool this year in my marketing & PR efforts....I seem to have figured them out having garnered approx $18K in new business because of Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.
I have a new favorite camera! It's a Leica D- Lux Type 109 mirrorless. It's not a alternative to my main camera systems, Nikon D-750, but it does offer amazing quality approaching the sensor quality of a Nikon DX camera.
If you are a client of mine, thank you for your business! If you are not yet a client, I hope you will email, text, FB or even call when you'd like me to take a picture or do some "design thinking" for you.
. My Assignment Last Saturday was to Capture the Flavor of the Day . Candid's, Journalistic Style Imagery and Grab Shots . I Shoot with 2 Nikon D-750 Camera Bodies. One with a 24-120mm lens and flash and the 2nd with a 70-200mm for in-obtrusive capture. Slung over my Shoulder is a 300mm in case I need the extra pull. Also, with me is a Leica De-Lux Type 109 acting as a Small Mirrorless Body Cam .
. Shooting an Event of this type is Almost the Same as Shooting Combat . It's Fast Action . Images Unfolding to Your Left/Right, In Front and to You've Got to Be Aware and Quick Enough to Shoot It .
. Although our Winter was relatively mild and all the world appears to be in a tumult, and nature itself is feeling the assault of climate change, the seasons retain their essential rhythm. Yes, fall gives us a premonition of winter, but then, winter, will be forced to relent, once again, to the new beginnings of soft greens, longer light, and the sweet air of spring .

Photography in Cleveland's Natural Spaces
“It had nothing to do with gear or footwear or the backpacking fads or philosophies of any particular era or even with getting from point A to point B.
It had to do with how it felt to be in the wild. With what it was like to walk for miles with no reason other than to witness the accumulation of trees and meadows, mountains and deserts, streams and rocks, rivers and grasses, sunrises and sunsets. The experience was powerful and fundamental. It seemed to me that it had always felt like this to be a human in the wild, and as long as the wild existed it would always feel this way.”

In Camera Double Exposure Tutorial
One image? Two Images? Three images? The possibilities are endless.
On the back of your Nikon, press the Menu button in the upper left corner. Using the multi selector button, press the down arrow to scroll through the various menus until you land on the Shooting Menu. Press the right arrow and then drill down until you see Multiple Exposure. Note: the Multiple Exposure option will be grayed out if your camera dial is set to Live View (LV). To make Multiple Exposure active, change that setting to from LV to Single (S), Continuous Low (CL) or Continuous High (CH) using the Advance Mode Dial.
By default Multiple Exposure is set to OFF. Press the right arrow to enter the Multiple Exposure options. Press the down arrow to highlight Number of Shots. To change the number of shots, press either the up or down button until the number you want is selected (you can choose between two and 10 shots). Then press the OK button. The next setting is Auto Gain. Generally it’s fine to leave it at the default selection of ON. (Auto Gain is the automatic exposure compensation for Multiple Exposure. The camera will adjust the exposure of each frame automatically to try and avoid overexposure.) Scroll up to Done and press the OK button. Press OK again until you exit the menus.
Up to 30 seconds is allowed between exposures, so start firing away. You will see an icon indicating that Multiple Exposure is currently on: two little rectangles stacked on top of each other. Press the shutter button the desired amount of exposures (this is what you set previously as Number of Shots). The LCD screen will flash, the icons will disappear, and the CF light will blink a few times as the camera processes all the exposures into one composite photo.
Unfortunately, with Live View disabled you won’t be able to see what you’ve got until the final product; this is where practice and trial and error come into play. But remember: Nikon DSLRs automatically turns off Multiple Exposure mode after each use, so don’t forget to go back in and turn it on again.
Almost any subject will work well for this technique – portraits, flowers, landscapes, or architecture. Try taking one shot perfectly in focus and then throw the second shot deliberately out of focus so that the image is slightly blurred. This can produce a glow or an ethereal feeling to the final composite exposure.
Now you’ve created a unique piece of art that no one else can duplicate. The only limit is the limit of your own imagination!

My Cameras Throughout The Ages
The Nikon F3 was Nikon's third professional single-lens reflex camera body, introduced in 1980, it had manual and semi-automatic exposure control whereby the camera would select the correct shutter speed (aperture priority automation). The Nikon F3 series cameras had the most model variations of any Nikon F camera. It was also the first of numerous Nikon F-series cameras to be styled by Italian designer Georgette Giugiaro and to include a red stripe on the handgrip – a feature that would later become (with variants of stripes and various other shapes) a signature feature of many Nikon cameras .
The F3 was superseded by the F4 in 1988 and the F5 in 1996. Despite being superseded by the newer cameras, it remained in production through to 2001, with over 751,000 F3s produced through September 1992. It continues to be the longest running professional grade Nikon SLR .
My first Nikon was a Nikon F Photomic FTN circa. 1968 . I've always loved and used a Nikon I've owned and used Nikon film cameras including the Nikon F2, F3, F4 and F5 . Nikon Professional Digital Cameras include the Nikon D1, D2x, D100, D200, D3, D3s, D4 and D750.
Other cameras used in my youth: A Brownie Bullet 127, Pentax Spotmatic, a Minolta SRT-101 . and a Hasselblad 500CM.

Award Winning Photography with a Cause
Making My Photographic Headshots Shine
When shooting a setup, I pre-visualize in my mind what I want the images to look like. That includes type of lighting, light modifiers, camera and glass, (lens) . Then, that tells me which gear I need for the shoot .
9.7 times out of 10 the setup in my mind is what we create to get the needed imagery.
Below are samples of "Environmental & Standard Neutral Background (White & Gray).
Strobe and LED lighting was used.
I can create and work in any environment. Please comment and ask questions and let me shoot or re-do your headshots.
The camera is my way seeing & being. When I pick it up, It allows me to express how I see the world.
