  2. On the same week that Facebook announced one of the largest acquisitions in social media history with a $19 billion buy of WhatsApp, it seemed appropriate that we were in the middle of photographing in-house for Social Media Week, a worldwide conference that touches base in New York every February.

    Large crowds flowed into a building across the street from Google’s New York headquarters to see speakers like Huffington Post and Buzzfeed founder Jonah Peretti and former AOL chief Steve Case, participate in masterclass sessions hosted by leaders in Social Media marketing, and learn skills like the art of Vine stop motion video. Of course, what’s a conference without the parties? A fashion show featuring wearable technology and a closing party with DJs in flashing techno-animal masks wrapped up the week.

  9. Arguably the most important holiday tree in the world, the Rockefeller Center Tree lighting is seen by tens of thousands live in midtown Manhattan and millions on television.

    This year’s tree, a 76-foot Norway Spruce, was selected from the Vargoshe estate in Shelton, CT. Brothers Nathan and Noah Vargoshe, pictured above, counted the rings on the stump as the tree was trucked 70 miles south to Rockefeller Plaza.

    The tree lighting ceremony will take place on December 4th.  

     
  10. When Superstorm Sandy hit the New York area last year, we were among the few photographers on the ground, seeing firsthand the devastating effects of the storm and the destruction it left in its wake. So when we were tapped to photograph in-house for Diana Nyad’s 48-hour Swim For Relief benefitting AmeriCares for victims of Hurricane Sandy, we were more than happy to lend a hand. Nyad, if you recall, was the feel good story of the summer when she became the first person to successfully free swim from Cuba to Florida.

    The event started on Tuesday morning in Herald Square with Good Morning America host Lara Spencer jumping into the pool with Nyad for a few laps. A stream of swimmers then joined Nyad in the pool one at a time, including Olympic gold medalist Ryan Lochte and IAMS rescue dog Roscoe. Even Insider Images photographer Andrew Kelly (who took many of the photos that you see above) jumped in for a lap with Nyad to help raise money.

    The swim concluded successfully on Thursday morning, but the fundraising continues for another 21 days. For more information, visit the Nyad Swim For Relief page.
