Every event has a story to tell, made up of the moments both large and small that are shared between everyone present. As a professional photographer providing event photography I tell the story of your event.
I highlight the big storylines, showcase the 'must have' images as well as capture the more intimate and personal stories that always go alongside any event.
Take your next event to the next level and turn it into a powerful marketing tool you can use over and over again with professional event photography.
Event podium photograph of Dr Henry Ward during a conference for NSEAD in Oxford. Dr Ward was speaking on day one of the at the annual conference of the National Society for Education in Art and Design (NSEAD).
The society provides a real forum for teachers and those interested in education to influence policy at the highest levels. The first day of the conference was held in the Pitt Rivers Museum in Oxford.
When capturing event photography, especially when photographing a speaker at the podium, it is important to learn the pace of the speaker. After watching for a few moments I learn the body language and rhythm that the speaker has so that hand gestures and eye contact can be captured. This makes for an engaging podium photo.
One of the greatest difficulties I find in event photography is coping with the lighting conditions. I do not use flash, otherwise, it would distract from the speaker, and the ambient light is usually a mixed bag of colours.
In this event photography image, which has been colour corrected, you can see a slight green cast on Dr Ward’s shirt from the projector, but the actual room was very dark and very very yellow!
For every event, I use a variety of styles from reportage (subtle photography taken from afar), staged group shots, interior shots as well as formal set up shots. I have got a keen eye for capturing the engagement of attendees and capturing telling moments. I am a detail-oriented photographer and will always make sure that even the simplest of moments are captured. I capture the expressions, and the spirit of the event as well as the celebratory moments. I visually capture the characters of the participants, presenters and performers, who together make these events a great success.
Before your event, I consult with your event organiser to agree on the images that are ‘must have’, such as podium speakers, group photographs, and the CEO laughing. We also go through any special visitors who would be great to capture, examples would include investors and significant shareholders or employees. At the same time, we discuss the style, agenda and timing of the event.
Peter is an expert photographer. His images of our busy conferences and symposiums are excellent,. He is professional in every way: he is highly talented, reliable and organised. Peter has achieved the best possible record of our events and best professional images of our team and delegates. If we could give Peter more than five stars we would!
For your event I will give you an online portal where everything connected to your event photoshoot will be in one place. Items such as galleries, design proofs, contracts, files, links, videos and any other documents. The dates and times of our meetings and even a place for you to keep all of your information like contact details. Your portal is available to you at any time day or night. Should you have any worries, questions or new ideas then you can contact me either by email, text or telephone.
Arriving early and finishing last I ensure that I have everything that you want to be captured. During the event, I blend in so as to get natural looking images, and I also stage where I need to ensure you get the very best quality photographs. Organising large groups of people is not an issue, plus I have a fairly loud voice when needed!
Peter is a real professional who took time to understand our needs, exercised real creativity and left us with a set of excellent images that we are proud to include in our promotional materials. I would highly recommend Peter to business colleagues, family and friends.

All of your images will be fully edited, colour corrected and available to you via your online gallery. You will also have the facility to share your gallery with attendees, vendors and selected colleagues. You decide what they can (and cannot) download and the resolution they receive. Your final images are then available to you to use how you wish. You may use them across all media and across all territories with no restriction on time.
