Fox News Brit Hume Retirement Party

We had the good fortune to photograph the Brit Hume retirement party last Thursday at Café Milano in old Georgetown. Thanks Stewart Davis.
I’ll see about sharing a few of the images we shot for Fox. Two of my favorites were done with the ambient light, one of Brian Williams and the other of Bo Derek by candlelight.

The hot spot Café Milano was packed tight with politicians, leaders from the George Bush administration, media people from the various networks and even a Hollywood legend.

It was really funny to see my name on the guest list sandwiched between congresswoman Jane Harman and others H's.

Below is a partial list of attendees who toasted Brit as he enters semi-retirement or perhaps simply a restructuring of his career to allow a new balancing of the priorities in life.
