5 Tips for Event Photography

14 February 2018

Almost 6 years I’m doing event photography. Only last year I did about 100 events in Dubai. Its big experience and

I want to share some tips for my clients.

  1. Brief your photographer. Everything about the schedule, changes, important people, speakers. Again, brief your photographer before the actual event. The best if the client sends brief few days before
  2. Light for a photographer is super important. Of course, I’m using flash. But I think you’ll agree that flash kills all ambient moody light. That’s why I use flash as minimum as possible to create the atmosphere of the event.
  3. Same way with disco blue and red lights. If pay to have on your event – 90% you’ll have it on photos.  Unfortunately, editing will not help.
  4. Photozone – Mediawall. Best option to create that place with additional tungsten light. Faces will look better and all your guests will take good photos by phone. If you don’t have light – ask photographer bring additional flash on a stand.
  5. Press images. Super important thing! Ask photographer do your press images straight after the event. 15 images is not a problem. Normally, I have the laptop with me and need 30 minutes to transfer edited press images to client.
