Tim Soter… blog.

I'm much better in person.

Wall Street Journal … Louis XIII event.

I just shot an event, a cognac tasting and dinner for Wall Street Journal.  Allow me to say I love shooting events!  People are well aware that part of the reason they’re there is to be photographed.  No one cares that I’m the fly on the wall who’s strobe occasionally goes off and it gives […]
