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.

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.
The camera is my way seeing & being. When I pick it up, It allows me to express how I see the world.
