5 reasons to engage a professional event photographer for your business event photography

Someone once said that,

Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first and the lesson afterwards.

When you don’t know what you’re doing, you take the test, and then try to learn from what life hands back to you. We’ve all been there and it doesn’t matter what your job is, you will get the test at some stage – so here are 5 reasons that will minimise the risk to your business, your department, your event, your reputation when engaging an event photographer.

  1. First and foremost we are professionals and specialists with close to 20 years experience in Sydney event photography for business and government. You may think perhaps that someone on your team or a cheaper alternative can capture the key moments and they may get lucky but lack of experience, amateur equipment and knowledge will generally show itself in poor results and key moments lost forever. A picture really is worth a thousand words.
  2. Cover yourself by engaging professionals who are covered by Public Liability Insurance. As unlikely as it may be you can never predict what may happen and life can sometimes throw up the most bizarre circumstances. You don’t really want to have that call from the boss to explain yourself.
  3. Fight for the budget to do things right. Check our previous work to see who we have worked with and the experience that comes from it. Great images will live on long after the bean counters thump the desk. Let them know that you have clear, unambiguous rights to use the images captured during your event.
  4. Post production is an extremely important part of how a professional will optimise and enhance the photos from your event to elevate the quality of the shoot so they can deliver a consistent theme that captures all aspects of the event with great colour, sharpness and skilled cropping. Amateurs or part timers rarely bother with such time consuming distractions.
  5. Good communication and a friendly and happy disposition are vital from your photographer to get the best results. Sub contract photographers or amateurs rarely care like the professional who owns the business. Make sure your budget is being spent wisely with happy people that care.
