Event Photography is mostly documentary-style photography – capturing who is attending and what’s happening. A range of photos will be taken to get an overall sense of your event, as well as formalities such as speeches and presentations right through to the finer details if requested so that you have well documented photos that showcase your event. Semi-posed photos can be included such as award winners with their trophies, a group of VIPs or board members in attendance, or an employee team photo.
Event photography needs quick thinking and the ability to get the best possible photo from a scene that’s not technically perfect. It’s a record of what’s happening at that moment, and it’s not usually possible to move unwanted objects from the scene, change the position of people, or alter the lighting. Sometimes it takes patience to wait for the best moment, and sometimes it’s a rush to get as many photos as possible that best capture what’s happening.
Some of the types of events that can be covered include: Conference, seminar and conventions Sporting event or tournament Awards presentations Opening of a new premises or business Community event or festival Networking or team building event Product launch Trade shows and exhibitions Work functions and corporate events Gala Dinners PR Events
