Event Photography is about catching an image, allowing your client to view it, being able to hold it in their hands in mere seconds, being able to buy it on site, being able to love and treasure it!
Event Photography is a form of social photography, quite different from many other types of professional photography.
Event photography is fantastic fun, it’s about building a client relationship and trust in seconds, making the client feel comfortable in front of studio lights in strange surroundings. It’s about being able to very quickly catch a key image which the client will love. It’s all about people.
Technology plays it’s part too – my latest professional cameras have WiFi to beam pictures back to the viewing station in seconds. A fast professional printer allows the photograph to be in the clients hand in less than two minutes from the click of the shutter, mounted in a smart folder and ready to take home.
This week saw me undertaking a night of event photography for Macmillan Education at a social event hosted as part of their conference for international English teachers. Their venue was the amazing, world famous Cavern Club in Liverpool – a regular working place for me professionally. It was great to work again with the Cavern’s management team as well as their amazing resident band The Cavern Beatles.
Normally the iconic Cavern Club stage is strictly for musicians only, but for one night it was my stage. The image you see here uses no less than three different studio lights to create a unique momento of the event for each of the 400+ guests at the biggest party in town.
So then event photography – a huge buzz, fantastic, frenetic fun and providing an absolutely unique momento of an amazing night.
Thanks again Macmillan for allowing me to work with you all, hope to repeat the pleasure again soon. (See the gallery of images here)
