Composed Images has captured conference and business event photography at a number of different venues across the last twelve months.
As in previous years, countless people have been photographed speaking at lecterns to different sets of audiences about a range of subjects. From housing and farming, to software programming and tenancy issues, plenty of specialist expertise has been delivered right over this photographer’s head.
Business event photography can mean different things to different people. It depends on your organisation or business and the people you are inviting to attend. Bigger business events and conference can entail break-out groups and concentrated workshops. There might be panel discussions and exhibition spaces, as well as award ceremonies and drinks receptions later in the day. View more about Composed Images event photography services.
However, there are regular commonalities in the business space. Banner stands with branding, registration desks, name badges and lanyards, tea and coffee, faintly tentative small-talky introductions, ‘networking’, sound-checking, broken microphones, fumbling with laptop cables, agendas, programmes or glossy promotional leaflets.
Discreetly capturing a flavour of the events and people of the day is the intention of Composed Images business event photography. Although candid group photographs can also be captured if that is required. Repeatedly photographing the same things over and over again, to the point of being distracting, is avoided. Blending forgettably amongst the crowd of attendees is the hope. Reflecting the energy and personality of the people and their talks is the aim.
Business events are primarily covered in Cardiff, where Composed Images is based, and across south Wales including neighbouring Newport. But cities such as Swansea and Bristol are certainly within reach too. Venues are usually city centre hotels, Cardiff city hall or the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, and its recently opened International Convention Centre (ICC).
When a connection has been made with the business event organiser, a brief will usually be sent outlining their requirements. This includes details about the event: date, location, type of photographs required and duration of coverage required – often a half day or full day. A quote for business event photography services will promptly be returned. This can be accepted, rejected or ignored. (It’s often the latter for the biggest businesses who simply need to fulfil a certain quota of quotes).
A selection of important pictures can be emailed or sent directly while on site to a contact for immediate use: social media or publicity. For example, if there is a visiting VIP speaker. A full image set of the day’s event, usually numbering around 100 photographs, is delivered within 24 hours.
Some clients choose to have images publicly available on sites like Flickr. It can provide value in allowing business event attendees and speakers to find and share images of themselves.
