Peter Scharff

At the heart of the Live Events Coalition is it’s many members who have worked behind the scenes of live events, creating magic. Now, they are struggling. Our goal is to capture the faces and stories of some of these dedicated people in a new series titled “Portraits and Stories” by photographer and story collector Peter Scharff.


Scharff is a 30-year veteran of the live events industry and was the founder and former owner of the New York City based AV staging company, Scharff Weisberg, Inc., which is now a part of World Stage. The profound challenges of the pandemic have inspired Scharff to reach out through Zoom to collect photographs and stories directly from his computer screen.


We hope these stories will bring a sense of community and inspiration to our members and help encourage others to become a part of the Live Events Coalition. To tell your story please contact Peter and set up a time to do a Zoom portrait and interview.
