The Geena Davis Institute On Gender In Media

As some of you may already know, I have had the privilege of shooting several events for the Geena Davis Institute On Gender In Media this year. It's quite the honor to be privileged to shoot such leading talent at these salons. Here's a brief look at the event and some of Hollywood's best that show up to speak and participate at each event. This year was hosted by CBS studios. Seven panelists and a moderator spoke before a crowded room. The theme was Reel vs Real Diversity in Hollywood: Influencers on-screen and behind the scenes.
