Conferences & Trade Shows
PROBLEM: You are probably a conference organiser. More than likely from interstate. And you don’t know me , or any other Gold Coast photography company for that matter. And you have this conference coming up on the Gold Coast or Brisbane.
REACTION: (a) Delegate (b) Do it yourself.
SOLUTION: Google a Gold Coast photographer and hopefully you find me. Do I know what I am doing. Yes. Any previous samples, Yes, How about price and availability, is there a phone number or email contact, Yes.
All good, call me now, (or read on a bit more if you have a few minutes).
I’ve been photographing a wide variety of conferences, trade shows, Gala Dinners, team building exercises, plenary and breakout sessions for over 10 years. I can be totally flexible in how your event is covered with the supply of final images as digital files and traditional prints. Sometimes I am asked to provide prints for all the delegates by the next morning or prepare a digital slideshow of images taken during the event for viewing at a closing dinner or session time. Almost always I will supply a disk of images covering the whole “story” of the event, in high and low resolution quality for in house newsletters, local media releases, company website and subsequent event marketing.
On a weekend residential event, a prominent American speaker said to me at the end, “I hardly noticed you were there…believe me, that is a compliment and seeing your slideshow you absolutely nailed it, from start to finish”… Exxon Mobil. (PNG LNG project)
Conferences involve low light photography which can be difficult. The room lighting is often supplied by the video production crew. My role is to work within their parameters yet still produce a series of high quality images. As a rule, I do not use flash during a speaker’s session unless that has been requested in advance by the organiser. I strive to keep my equipment up to the latest models. The trend over the past 5 years in camera development has been to improve the camera’s performance under challenging (low) lighting conditions such as we find here.
