Genuinely live conference photography means not having to wait until the next day or the next week for your pictures. You should be able to quickly view, download and share professional images of your big presentation to a packed out lecture theatre, a prestigious award presentation shot, or the sense of atmosphere in a stylish event venue.
With those pictures promptly on hand you can strike while the social media engagement iron is hot and the hashtag is still flowing content. And when the memory is fresh. You can reach a wider audience than those present in the room thanks to social media audiences. It gives added resolution, quality and gloss to any Facebook live broadcasts or smartphone pictures.
Composed Images strives to process and upload live conference photography while events are in progress. At the time of publishing this page in November 2017, recent conferences at Cardiff City Hall and the National Museum of Wales have benefited from professional photography being uploaded in near real time to Flickr.
A Creative Commons licence is given to hundreds of pictures uploaded in an accurate chronological sequence to the Flickr platform. This allows conference delegates to find, download and re-share their pictures to their audience on their platform of choice; whether it’s Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. Or they can just email a few to their mum.
You can sample live Cardiff conference photography across hundreds of images from conferences at Cardiff City Hall and the National Museum of Wales on Flickr here.
Take a look at the 2018 round up of events and conference photography work.
On the request of event organisers, these have been made available for speakers and attendees to find and share.
