Best Types of Lenses for Corporate Event Photography

December 17, 2015

If you are a professional photographer, then corporate event photography will be fairly easy for you. It would be best if you come to the location early to figure out where the best photos can be taken. Where is the main speaker going to stand and where can you take clear shots without blocking the view of the audience? Can you bring the company’s logo in the shorts? What position will be the best position for you to make most of the positions? 

That’s not enough, the results of the corporate event photography depend on the types of lenses that are best according to the event. The best ones are:

  • EF 24- 105 mm f/4L
  • 24-120mm f/4G
  • EF 24-70MM F/2.8 L

You will need long and short zoom lens. For the main speaker, you would want to use the long telephoto lens so that you can zoom at him as much as you can. It won’t be easy to run up and down the aisle for focusing right. So, it is best that you have short zoom lens for shooting the attendees. For the group shots, keep the aperture small enough so that you can keep everyone in focus. It will typically be f/5.6 or even more.

Corporate event photography demands a photographer to be fast and, of course, personable. If you have all the best lenses and gears in your kit, you will enjoy shooting the events. The results will be great too and you will be hired by the same clients again.

Hiring a Corporate Event Photographer

December 11, 2015

Hiring the right person for event photography is extremely important. The person who is going to share the day with you must be a professional. It is a tough job that must only be handed over to an experienced corporate event photographer.

When hiring a corporate event photographer, here are some things that you must consider before you make a final decision:

  • Learn about the style of the photographer. This will help you in picking the style for your event too. You can choose to keep the photos traditional, artistic or photojournalistic. This will give you insights about the personality and professionalism of the photographer.
  • Learn about the personality of the photographer. Is he the kind of person you want to hire for the event? Have a conversation with the photographer. This will give you clues about his personality.
  • Ask as many questions as you can from the photographer regarding his work and the service. Some of the common questions include:
  • How long have you been in this business?
  • Do you have any references?
  • Do you know about the venue beforehand?
  • Are there any samples of your work?
  • Do you come with backup equipment on the site?
  • Are you flexible to changes in the schedule at the last minute?
  • It is not just you who is supposed to ask questions, the event photographer must ask questions too. Professionals always ask their clients about their vision and expectations from the job.

If you are comfortable with the response of the photographer and you think he can handle your event, then go ahead and hire him.

Corporate Event Photography Tips

December 11, 2015

If you ask photographers what they love about corporate event photography, they will say that every experience is always different and that’s what they love about it. There are certain tips that you can hold on to for attaining success at each event. Have a look at them:

Come at the Venue Ahead of Time

It is best for the photography to come at the venue ahead of time not just to have a feel of the venue but to pick the best spots from where he can take the best photos. It will help you decide how you can position yourself to take photos and analyze the lighting condition also.

Dress Professionally

You must blend in with the rest of the corporate group. Corporate events mostly demand you to wear a tuxedo in case you are a male and formal dress in case you are female. Don’t do any guess work, ask the event organizer about the dress code so that you perfectly fit in with everyone else.

Get Access to the Schedule

As you have to shoot everything about the event, you need to know what’s going to happen next and what special moment are you required to capture. Get the whole schedule of the event from the event organizer.

Be Unnoticeable

You must never interrupt the important conversations. When guests seem heavily engaged, that means they are busy discussing something important. Wait till it’s over if you want to capture any shot. On the other hand, when the environment is relaxed, people will notice you immediately and they will pose for the picture without you having to tell them. All you have to do is be as unnoticeable as possible.
