This years KN UK leadership and management conference was held at the De Vere Beaumont Estate near Windsor on the outskirts of London. The conference guest speaker was BBC personality Steph McGovern who opened the conference and guided the talks and presentations over the 2 days.
As far as event and conference photography, my brief was to capture all aspects of the conference. Delivering some promo images for use on social media and on the big screens for day 2 followed by the rest soon afterwards.
The KN conferences are always varied with a whole range of activities and presentations. They are keen to get colleagues off their seats and move around, network and emphasise interaction and cooperation. I like my conference photography to document all the events that occur whilst capturing images that are engaging and capture the energy of the room.
Sometimes the low light aspect of these large conference spaces can create really nice cinematic effects. Crating beautiful silhouette shots that look great for a more unique, creative look.
As an experienced corporate conference photographer I make sure I get the following images:
Wide shots to show scale and scene
Photographs in varying sizes of all speakers (portrait and landscape)
Business networking images of delegates interacting
Brand logos and set up shots of all print displays and monitor displays
Exterior shot of the venue and outside conference branding
Group shots and posed portraits to camera
Delegates enjoying themselves and environmental photography
Photographs showing motion and flow.
Photographs of awards on a clean background
Above all, the pre production chat between myself and the client is the most important in pinning down any must get shots and deciding upon a photography brief! It's all about communication. I pretty much know what you need as I have photographed many conferences and events. I'm an easy going photographer and can adapt to any situation which is key to overcoming obstacles on the day. Hiring an experienced photographer means you can rest assure and continue with that all important to do list!
