"As one of the biggest and most cutting-edge social media events in the world, we need to get our content live and shareable ASAP. Insider Images seamlessly delivered--they got the top-quality shots we needed and some we didn't even know we needed. We've hired Insider Images to cover Social Media Week three years in a row because they're the best. You'd be crazy to hire anyone else for photography."

"The intersection of speed and quality is extremely important when it comes to visual content for marketing purposes. For the new Microsoft Office consumer launch event in New York City, Insider Images was able to transmit professional images to Redmond, WA for review and approval while the event was still going on, allowing for real time marketing and increased awareness of the event that ultimately contributed to its success. Insider Images also produced a large asset library of high quality images and video that will be valuable for traditional, digital and content marketing well into the future. We consider Insider Images a critical partner in the production and delivery of our premium visual content and the execution of our content strategy."

"Internet Week NY is a little bit of everything -- a conference, a live event, a web-streamed content initiative — and it happens in over 50 venues each day throughout the entirety of NYC. Covering it not only requires dedication, but we tried to emphasize timeliness and taste, two areas where Gary and his team truly excelled. The photos looked fantastic but more importantly for Internet Week, the photos were posted online to social media platforms in nearly real-time. With an audience as digitally savvy and influential as Internet Week, it isn't merely a hope. It's an absolute necessity. Gary and his team's timeliness and dedication to turning the content around quickly led to more engagement for attendees and increased conversation for those online following along virtually.
Regarding our marketing materials, the high quality photography was invaluable to the sponsorship process. With over 200 speakers and high-profile keynote addresses, it was crucial to have dependable, impactful photography not only to market the event in future years, but to capture the energy of the room at the moment. We used Gary's photography in sales decks, online, and in marketing materials, marrying it with a tradition of solid graphic design to yield some truly outstanding collateral. It was a pleasure to work with him on multiple years of the event. All you can ask, as a producer, is for someone to get the job done. Gary and his team went above and beyond not only to deliver, but to deliver at the very highest quality."
—Steve Marchese, Executive Producer of the Webby Awards
