My assignment last week encompassed photographic coverage of The first International Association of Sheet Metal, Air, Rail and Transportation workers convention, which is now the largest union in the United States and Canada. It was held at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.  This historical event required my skills not only as a convention photographer but also an Industrial photographer. A daily newspaper was published each day which meant fast turn-a-round plus many of the images will appear in the union’s Journal. The most exciting part of the event came when I photographed a panorama with 1200 delegates. At the same time my wife, Bette, Photographed me on a scissors lift doing what I do best which is enjoying my job! To me this was the opportunity of a lifetime and I made every effort to record everything with precision including images of the entire set-up for the production company, the hotel and the client.
