How to Get the Most Out of Your Event Photographer

You have one opportunity to capture your event in all of its glory, before it is gone forever. To capture those precious moments, it is really important to choose the right event photographer. An event photographer is someone who specializes in capturing the action and the people attending your event in an excellent way. Whether it’s a corporate Christmas party, conference or even a sporting match, they are skilled at capturing the natural actions. However, their work can be used for much more than capturing memories. Here in this blog, we will explain on how you can get the most out of your event photographer.

Don’t Cut Corners

Once an event is over the moment is lost and without great photos to show it is difficult to easily convey the story of the event. A picture really is worth a thousand words. SO, you should hire someone who doesn’t cut any corner and miss a chance to capture those moments carefully. If budget is tight and doesn’t allow for a photographer throughout the whole event consider contracting a photographer for a half day or even a few hours.

Check Portfolio

We are lucky enough to have developed a great relationship with a photographer who is our first choice for all events. It is vital to look at the portfolio and testimonials or references for any photographer you are considering working with. Specifically look at examples of other event work and similar projects they have undertaken and most importantly ensure that you like their style and creative flair.

Ask for a Quotation

Give as much information as possible to the photographer when asking them to quote for a project. What times realistically do you need them on site, what are you looking for them to cover, etc. Don’t forget to let your speakers know that photographs will be taken at the event so they are not surprised to see the camera angled at them as they are presenting in full flow.
