Jim Evangelista goes back to college

It is always an honor when individuals/organizations you admire knock on the door to collaborate. I’ve admired the mission of Team Business USA for a long time now and when they asked me to do a shoot at the University of Pennsylvania I jumped at the opportunity.

The concept is simple; gather a classroom full of high school students from different backgrounds and ethnicities and teach them the importance of teambuilding to achieve business objectives while quickly breaking down conversational barriers and bringing the participants together through the intensity of a fast-paced and dynamic competition. The emotional power of these interactions has a powerful and lasting effect on these young students and is for many, a road to increased self awareness and self confidence. The project has been incredibly rewarding and it is deeply humbling to have played a role in this educational effort. My eternal thanks go out to all involved.

The Dad Vail Regatta

 From bridals gowns to scullers – it has been a diverse and fun month. Here are some images from my shoot at the Dad Vail Regatta. About 3,500 athletes from more than 125 colleges and universities in the United States and Canada compete in the Aberdeen Dad Vail Regatta, the largest collegiate regatta in the nation and a Philadelphia tradition.

Since 1934 the two-day race has taken place on a six-lane, Olympic-length course. They begin just north of where Kelly Drive intersects Hunting Park Avenue, and end 2,000 meters later at the Grand Stand, just above the Columbia Avenue Bridge.

My thanks to my client, Aberdeen Asset Management who sponsors the race.
