Photography for Corporate Events

We are often commissioned to photograph our London client’s corporate events on a recurring cycle. This is because once the client sees the benefits of having a decent photographic or video record of the event they will repeat the process for each new occasion. Having these images is a massive plus when it comes to marketing next year’s event. There is no doubt that great photographs showing industry professionals looking interested, taking notes, talking with clients/customers in their business sector, enjoying the great venue and illustrating how popular and busy it was was can only improve your next event.

When you commission a corporate photographer in London to cover your event make sure you have a comprehensive shot list. We came unstuck on a few events where we would focus on aspects of the occasion like the key speakers and the venue and not knowing that the client had assumed we would know who the important people in the audience were and had captured their photos. Other shots to have on the list are internal and external photos of the venue, food and drink photographed before it is served. We tend to suggest you do not take close up photos of people eating as these never really work. Also close ups of any awards and literature at the event along with images of any graphics and projected images.

A good idea is once you have the events photography send out a gallery with download options to everyone who attended the event. People might not want to ask for a photo of themselves but this way guests have the option to use their photo and just ask for a credit if they are using it on a website.

We often download images and video as the event is in progress this way our clients can stream photos onto social media. With DSLRs we can capture the key speakers or invited guests as they talk on stage. These are great records of the event and can be used on your company website.

Corporate Photography in London Offices

Following on from my last post on corporate London photography I would like to show some samples of our corporate photography taken in London offices.

This style of photography has always been one of our favourites to capture and to see on clients websites. Most of our commissions are for corporate headshots but we are seeing more clients asking us to also capture some ‘working’ images whilst we are there. In our opinion these give a true reflection of your company and its employees, capturing natural and unposed images of everyday office life. When we explain that to capture these reportage office shots we will just wander around the building and wait for interesting moments to happen, understandably clients are a little wary of what we will come back with. Our aim is to make the offices look as good as possible and using focus techniques with experience we can perfect these everyday scenes into good marketing material for your company.

These corporate reportage photographs look natural and therefore seeming easy to capture as the photographer just has to point his camera at what is going on in the offices. This is far from the truth and capturing these images takes lots of skill and experience. Photographers who are not used to shooting reportage can come unstuck very quickly as they are faced by a busy office full of people who normally do not want to be photographed. Blending into the background and thinking ahead of situations are skills you need and making sure you are in the correct position to capture a moment when it is about to happen. If the photographer is wandering around a London office and seeing a fleeting moment happen then they have missed the opportunity to capture it as they will not have time to get the camera in position let alone focus accurately.

Once in the bag these images are ideal for company websites and can be used as banner images and we are seeing them used as individual’s profile photographs along with and sometimes, instead of the more traditional corporate headshot.
