Calling In The Big Guns – Why You Need A Professional Photographer At An Event

November 2, 2016 | By Will Cannan | Filed in: Business Services.

Imagine that you are in charge of organizing and executing a corporate event smoothly. The event is a roaring success; everyone is smiling and happy. Come Monday, your boss wants a comprehensive report on the party as well as a puff piece to be sent to the news papers for public relations. Horror of horrors! You have no photos! At least, you don’t have any that have enough pixel strength to be sent to be published because you were too busy running the show to take pictures.

Welcome to the modern corporate event: a harried, busy occasion where one hundred people have one hundred questions all to be answered by one flustered assistant whose job it was to organize the function. It is difficult to manage everything else and photos are an absolute necessity. So here are some reasons for why you should invest in proper event photography the next time you organize and EVENT.

They Take the Job off Your Hands
As professionals, they will make sure that you do not have to worry throughout the event. They will bring their own equipment and their own personnel. If there is a problem, they will contact you. if not, they will only call you again to tell you that they are leaving and to inform you when the photos will be ready. If there is anything in particular you would like to have a picture of, you need to inform them prior to the event, but apart from that, you will be left alone to attend to other things.

They Make Everything and Everyone Look Good
Professional photographers have a way of making everyone look good, even if they are in a photo booth holding up signs and wearing silly costumes. Some events may not be perfectly organized; the decorations may be a flop. Good photographers know how to gloss over the flaws and capture only the beauty. They will shoot close ups of a particular section of the audience to hide the fact that the room is almost empty. This will come in good stead when you have to write a report or upload the pictures onto the company social media page/s.

They Record Everything
Professional photographers know through experience where they need to be to capture something that is happening. If you rely on the informal snaps of a camera phone, chances are you would miss something important because you can’t be in two places at once. Neither can the photographer, but they will time things carefully and capture it somehow, or they will bring in backup. It is common to see several official photographers walking around and mingling with the crowds at an event as that way they are able to have full coverage. This is why you should always hire the pros for a big event.
