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.
