This weekend, we had the opportunity to photograph the Florida Academy of Family Physicians‘ 2011 Annual Event at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island. As usual, the Ritz did a wonderful job of making this event truly memorable – from a beautiful general session to an absolutely stunning winter wonderland for the evening gala.
We provided a variety of services at this event, from standard event coverage, to onsite studio photography. Thankfully, the staff of FAFP is wonderful to work with – making our job a true joy.
If you were wondering, here’s a bit more about the FAFP from their site:
The Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP) is composed of more than 4,000 family medicine physicians, resident physicians, and medical students from across the state. The FAFP works to advance the specialty of family medicine by promoting excellence and improvement in the healthcare of all Floridians. Our priority is to help our members to become the best family physicians they can be through effective communication, legislation/regulation, education, advocacy, research and motivation.
This week, we had the opportunity to spend a few days at the Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, supporting the photography needs of Darden Restaurants (They operate Olive Garden, Longhorn, Capital Grille, Seasons 52 [the first one in the Jacksonville area opens in just a few weeks at the St. Johns Town Center] and Bahama Breeze). We provided the conference with 0n-site printing and studio photography, as well as conventional event coverage – all while learning a bit about the restaurant industry!
Darden is passionate about serving the community – and at this event they spent a fun afternoon assembling 1,000 backpacks full of school supplies for the region’s Boys and Girls clubs.
We even got a chance to preview BMI’s latest traveling show, The Southern Gentlemen Tour, featuring Ed Roland of Collective Soul and Kevin Griffin of Better than Ezra. And yes, memories from my high school years did come rushing back. I would certainly encourage checking them out when they’re nearby!
