Today I have the pleasure of sharing something very exciting! Over the weekend, the portrait of Chip Paucek that I shot for SmartCEO magazine, was featured on the Nasdaq tower in Time Square NYC! Check it out:

Featured in Time Square NASDAQ Tower Ignite Ambition, Chip Paucek

The image was originally created for the cover of SmartCEO’s Washington DC Nov./Dec. issue, which you can find here.

The night before the shoot, I was surfing the web to learn more about Chip and 2u Inc. I found some great videos on youtube and features by Business Insider and INC. The more I learned about the successes and all around greatness of this company, the more I felt butterflies about the upcoming shoot. Right off the bat, Chip was super personable and game for cracking jokes and having a good time with the photo process. One of my favorite parts of the shoot (and I think his too) was when we cut him loose to visit with employees of the 2u Inc team, while I shot candids. He’s the kind of guy who thrives on connecting with his people and wants the office to be an enjoyable, innovative, and creative space for everyone. It was a pleasure doing this shoot for SmartCEO and having Nasdaq feature this in Time Square is icing on this fantastic experience with the Company and Chip. Thank you Nasdaq for snapping a photo of the tower!

Here are a few other photos that ran in the magazine feature:
