There are so many types of event
photography: wedding, corporate, sporting and other special occasions.
You might be confused with just what to look for when you choose
an event photographer. The below guidelines may help you in your
Not everyone doing event photography is created equal.
Even in the area of event photography there are specialties. Someone
who does weddings, birthdays and other family events is called a
social photographer. Someone who does conferences, tradeshows and
galas, on the other hand, is considered to be a corporate event
photographer. When hiring someone to do your special event, make
sure you are aware of their specialty or whether they specialize
in both! The most talented wedding photographer may not be the best
choice for your upcoming, fast-paced, multi-faceted annual conference.
The style of event photography you want will help
choose the photographer. Are you interested in traditional photography
with formal poses? Or are you looking for a photographer that can
capture more spontaneous shots? Maybe you want both! Whatever the
style, when looking for someone to hire for your event photography,
you need to look at portfolios! If you don’t know the exact
terminology for the style of photography you desire, look through
magazines to find samples of the style you are seeking. Then ask
to see any similar work the photographer may have.
You really shouldn’t be the person asking all
the questions about the event photography, either. The event photographer
you are interviewing for the job should be asking you questions,
too! What is the event? Are there multiple locations with different
lighting needs? What are your expectations? The more they know about
the event, the more samples they can show you of similar work.
