Common Questions About Corporate Event Photography

We’ve found our corporate clients at Photography G typically have a long list of questions regarding what to look for and expect from an event photographer. Some of these questions include: 

Are there photographers who specialize in conference and corporate work?

Client: I see many professionals focus on wedding and portrait photography, but I would prefer someone who considers this type of work their specialty.

The short answer is yes, and Garrett specializes in photography for commercial businesses and organizations. While we offer an array of photography at our Denver studio, Garrett’s main focus centers on corporate photography. Garrett entered the photography field after photographing Rock and Roll legends such as the Allman Brothers and Bruce Springsteen, which helped him cultivate a knack for catching important moments others may miss.

Why would we hire an out of town photographer to photograph our conference instead of someone local?

You may consider it more convenient to hire a local photographer, but experience and talent should be more of a deciding factor than location. Reputation should also be taken into consideration, which you can research by reading reviews from other corporate event clients.

The Photography G client list includes businesses, associations and events across the country such as the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM). Garrett has been the preferred photographer for AOSSM for more than ten years at its Annual Meeting—from Seattle, Washington to Orlando, Florida.

“While it may seem counterintuitive to utilize an out-of-town photographer, there are a number of benefits aside from it being cost-effective. When Garrett is at the meeting, he is essentially on duty the entire day and, therefore, easy to incorporate into different functions at short notice.” — Irv Bomberger, Executive Director of AOSSM.

 

How does Photography G handle photographs of celebrity guests and speakers?
