Manchester Event Photography.
Event photography is something I’m frequently asked to do. This event was a particularly interesting conference with a great speaker; futurologist Magnus Lindqvist. I know I’m at these events to work, but it’s good to hear what others are up to in these tough times and to come away from an event like this with a bit of inspiration for 2013.
Here is a recent job for St Vincents Housing Association, photographing their 2012 staff conference at Media City, Salford Quays.
It’s the first time I’ve photographed a conference at Media City, and the lighting conditions made the photography really easy. A nice bright venue complete with a Tardis and Darlek !
When photographing a conference, or similar event, I always try to get a selection of formal and informal images. The obvious formal ones are things like the speakers (both head and shoulders and while at the lectern). But it’s also nice to try and show audience reaction, along with any of the interactive elements of the conference. I also like to try and capture any merchandise or branding that’s been created for the event.
