American Momentum Bank is located at a great corner location in downtown St. Petersburg. I photographed the ribbon cutting ceremony sponsored by the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce. It was a very well attended Thursday evening event. The marketing team did their jobs well. It was one of the liveliest crowds I have seen at a networking event too.
I am normally quite shy at these networking events, but even I talked to at least five people at length. It helped that I met the manager of the bank a few weeks earlier at another networking event and he took a liking to me. He was very generous with introducing me to people at the event trying to help me get new photography clients. It was greatly appreciated.
The crowd was a mix of the regulars you see attending Chamber networking events, bank employees and their guests, as well as clients of the bank (pictured above). It was a very fun, productive, and tasty (sweet dates) event to photograph!
