When covering a massive political event like the 2012 Republican National Convention, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by the scope of the event. However, with some planning, organization and a little flexibility, it always seems to work out! It was a wonderful day spent in my home town covering what is hopefully not the last national political event to be held in our great city!

The RNC spans several miles in downtown Tampa. The 15,000 members of the media are set up in the Tampa Convention Center, the nightly events with speakers like presidential nominee Mitt Romney are hosted in the Tampa Bay Times Forum and the protesters are in the tent city dubbed “Romneyville”, several blocks away from the tight security that surrounds the other venues.

And don’t forget all the folks that put this entire week together (I call them “worker bees”) and the ones who keep it going like the fine folks at Tampa Bay & Company who created the Social Media Command Center held at St. Leo University in downtown Tampa.

While it may take me a few days to edit through the photos, I wanted to post a few from some of the stops I made. While I did not cover the evening events, I did get to meet a slew of fantastic people in downtown Tampa and Ybor City

 Everyone pays attention to a man in a cowboy hat!

A fabulous, festive woman so excited to attend the RNC: “It’s like when you wear all your team’s colors on game day!”

RNC attendees board the “Ybor trolley” to catch a ride into downtown Tampa.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani speaks to WNYC Radio at the Tampa Convention Center.

Fox News talk show host Geraldo Rivera interviews actor Stephen Baldwin at the Tampa Convention Center.

Google+ not only created a very unique media room at the Tampa Convention Center but the web giant also knows how to please journalists: free snacks and free coffee ALL DAY LONG. These poor baristas had a line full of shaky journalists the whole time!

The free coffee in the Google+ room was provided by a favorite local coffee spot, Buddy Brew in south Tampa. Thank you!!!

One of the super slick ways to “play” in the Google+ room was to sit down in this booth (nice light too) and record a message for a member of the military. That’s just a wonderful thing to offer!

Swank, comfortable chairs and bright colors graced the Google+ lounge.

Although I will never understand what most protesters are trying to say, they are always fun to photograph! (William Poe Park, Tampa)

Members of the Junior State of America take a break from their schedule to snack in Centro Ybor.

RNC media use the plush Tampa Bay & Company booth in the Tampa Convention Center to relax and take a break from work.

The hard workers at the Social Media Command Center at St Leo University in downtown Tampa pose for some silly portraits. I love meeting other people who love their job!

The savvy team from Spark interviews Tampa Bay & Company’s fearless leader and VP of Marketing, Doug McClain.

The Downtown Tampa’s Solstice Bash was a smashing success and I’m honored to have been a part of it! This special event offered great music, food and cocktails. And if you’re looking for a great night out, why not help a charity in the process?

The Rotary Club of Tampa and The Tampa Bay History Center hosted this fabulous event that benefits multiple charities including Wheels of Success. One of the best moments of the evening was when Executive Director Susan Jacobs gave a United States Veteran keys to his car! This organization is vital in giving veterans and struggling families a fighting chance to work and live in our community.

The night was complete with live and silent auctions, complimentary tastings and entertainment courtesy of PRP Wines, Cold Storage Craft Brewery, Channelkatz, Diamond Crown Cigars.

To see all the photos from, the evening and/or order reprints, please contact Jessica Leigh at Jessica@jlpflorida.com for online gallery information. Thank you!

Want to help others in the fight against cancer? Want to support survivors like Vicki Odioso Peters? Want to impress fitness trainer Carrie Kukuda?

Well, if none of those questions light your fire, you can at least get some free photos of yourself competing in this year’s Miles for Moffitt! Jessica Leigh Photography is teaming up with Get A Grip Total Fitness (GAG) to provide free  photos on the day of the race to anyone who signs up for the 1-mile, 5K, 5-mile or kids races under the “Odioso/Peters/Get A Grip Total Fitness” team. Photos will be shot before the race at the GAG tent, at the finish line to the 5K race (and possibly the 1-mile) and after the race. Please wear your blue Get A Grip shirt so Jessica can identify you as the cross the finish line.

Photos will be available the week of May 14th on the JLP blog and on the JLP Facebook page. Please check both pages that week to find your photos.

Although Jessica would rather do anything but run, she did participate in the 2011 Miles for Moffitt as a runner and it was a wonderful experience. “There’s a level of camaraderie and passion that you don’t expect to encounter when you first show up for the race," said Jessica. "Seeing thousands of people coming together for one cause is a moving moment. Representing survivors we love and those who had their life cut short too soon makes it worth it to donate, race, volunteer or sponsor.”  

Jessica Leigh Photography is proud to call Vicki Peters and Carrie Kukuda clients and friends. We hope you will join us on May 12th to celebrate survivors and raise money to finally find a cure.

To register, please visit Active.com and sign up under the team name "Odioso/Peters/Get A Grip Total Fitness". If you have any questions, you can contact Jessica Leigh at jessica@jlpflorida.com.

 Potographing corporate events can be bland but not with folks like the Professional Media Group.

I had the pleasure of covering the Models of Efficiency Awards dinner for the University Business Magazine and Higher One. The event was held at the very swank Jackson’s Bistro near downtown Tampa on Harbor Island.

Thank you to all of the people who were involved in planning this event, especially those who had to do so far away from Tampa! I am always amazed at how well organized companies like these are and how they can pull off an elegant event from across the country.

I look forward to working with you all again soon!

Simplicity is a beautiful thing.

Kelli and Michael know this is key when planning a wedding. Their April wedding consisted of a beautiful sunset beach ceremony at Honeymoon Island, Florida with their closest family and friends followed by a relaxing reception with good music and good food. That’s really all you need, right?

I applaud their efforts to make their big day special but not complicated.

The bridesmaids wore tangerine dresses and carried a single Calla Lily. The best man wore a cream shirt and khakis. And no shoes allowed!

The ceremony and reception had the traditional outdoor Florida vibe—easy going and full of fun! The only unwanted guests were the mosquitoes but that’s the risk brides and grooms take when planning a Florida beach wedding!

This wedding was a referral from a wonderful couple, the Downings, which I met when Mr. Downing trained my dog two years ago at American Family Dog Training. I then shot their family portraits (including their three German Shepherds) and when Mrs. Downing asked me to shoot her daughter’s wedding, I was so honored. Truly the greatest compliment I receive is a referral from a family member or dear friend of a client. Thank you!

Planning and venue: Honeymoon Pavilion

Have you added a personal touch to your business lately? A professional head shot is just one way to entice potential clients. If you don't invest in your business, why should anyone else?

The University of Tampa is known for recognizing its staff, faculty, boards and donors for the time and dedication they offer to the university. The holidays are no different and I had the pleasure of covering the annual holiday party held at historic Plant Hall for the Board of Trustees, Board of Fellows and Board of Counselors.

As always the university is generous in its hospitality and it shows in every detail. I hope to cover this joyous occasion again in 2011!
