They are similar in ways that they are both round, but completely different when you take a closer look. The same logic applies to the person you have appointed to photograph your event. Just because that person is holding a camera doesn’t mean they know how to capture dynamic or exciting photos, much less know what to do in low-light situations. So lets break this down even further with a few photo examples from non-professionals and with me, a professional event photographer.
I was contacted again to provide event photography for a few clients during SXSW in Austin TX. They needed someone who was able to photograph in really low light environments and be able to navigate a sea of people without disrupting the party. This is my specialty! I thrive in environments like this. :)
In the month of October, I had the pleasure of being one of three photographers being hired to photograph the BLU Party + My Yacht Club event. Let me put this in perspective for you, there were over 20 something photographers that were given access to photograph this event for free, FOR FREE!! Who works for free these days?
