We had a lot of fun photographing last year's ISES Big Apple Awards so we were excited to videograph this year's gala including amazing aerial shots of Central Park and the Museum. You can fast forward to any part in the video; the first 4.5 minutes are candid and aerial shots and the rest are the awards presentations. We were happy to capture a lot of nice things being said about a lot of people.
