Event Photography

Event Photography: Comparing "Apples to Oranges"

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.

Tampa Bay Margarita Festival 2017

Tampa Bay Margarita Festival 2017

Celebrating the 5-year anniversary of the Tampa Bay Margarita Festival, I was flown out from Austin Texas, to Tampa Florida to provide event photography for 813area and Big City Events. This is my third year in a row to cover the festival and it has quickly grown to be one of my favorites!

28th Annual Bandana Ball: Ronald McDonald House Charities of Central Texas 2017

I was invited to be a part of the 28th Annual Bandana Ball for Ronald McDonald House of Charities and I have to say it was a very special moment in my photography career. Never have I been a part of something so special and magical as this event.

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. :) 

Editing: Blu Party + My Yacht Club Photos

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?
