-South Street Seaport Instameet -
This weekend, Instagram encouraged photographers worldwide to host and attend meetups, or ‘instameets’. These meets are an incredible way to connect to other members of the Instagram community, and it is always mind-blowing and exciting to see and be involved in the kind of creative melting pot that occurs when large groups of people with a common passion get together.
Upon seeing the announcement, my friend Dave Krugman and I decided to host a meet in NYC, starting at 7:00 a.m. at the South Street Seaport. The response was beyond overwhelming. By 7:30 a.m., we had over 50 Instagrammers lined up and ready to shoot!
The rest of the day unfolded in epic fashion as we explored the Seaport, the elevated acre, and other parts of downtown NYC.
Here are some of my favorite shots from the day. For a whole round-up of the shots from the day, check out the hashtag #rainrisenyc on Instagram!
