Event photography is suitable for an occasion when you need your event photographed as a record of what’s happening. Hiring me allows you to run the event, or just sit back and enjoy what’s going on, without the stress of photographing it yourself or taking a risk with an amateur who has a ‘nice’ camera!
Event photography needs quick thinking and the ability to get the best possible photo from a scene that’s not photographically perfect. It’s a record of what’s happening at that moment, and it’s not 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. Simple posed photos can be arranged, but the majority of photos are candid.
Events I photograph can range from private functions such as birthdays, anniversaries and engagement parties, to community awards and presentation dinners, to sporting tournaments, and business events of all kinds. A minimum booking of two hours is required, and additional time is charged by the hour. You will receive approximately 30-50 photos per hour of photography, and high resolution edited images of your event are available within 48 hours via download. If you need photos for social media soon after your event, it can be arranged.
Prints can be created from your photos, but are not usually requested for this type of photography (with the exception of weddings).
