My main priority is to capture the keynote speaks, podium images, group photos, context shots of the venue, happy attendees, networking and so on.
But at times it is the quirky and the fleeting moment that would be lost without someone to document it.
During the conference, delegates were given a task to find and record information in the Pitt Rivers Museum. The museum itself was very dark. Almost pitch black with just the lights from the various cabinets and displays. This was how museums were done in Victorian times.
As I was wondering about capturing delegates deep in conversation and looking with wonder at the exhibits I noticed this schoolboy. He was bemused by the delegate noting a feature of the lift. He could hardly believe his eyes!..The conference was the first day 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.

Peter Nutkins has a remarkable skill in engaging creatively and sensitively with any situation, dark rooms, busy, shy or distracted people. He would be my photographer of choice for business, conference or more family centered events and celebrations.
