I’m not going to lie… conference photography can be slooooowwww! However I do still enjoy photographing them as I need to hone my skills to get some engaging imagery. No offence to my concrete client but the eight hour concrete conference was a challenge! On the flip side conferences can be a high energy and engaging affair. I’ve listened to so many inspirational keynote speakers and have gained so much advice from them. A speech by the athlete Kriss Akabusi literally left me breathless and was one of the most inspirational things I’ve heard.
If you book me to photograph a conference I’m always happy to bring some lighting and a backdrop along so that I can take headshots of the delegates during the breaks.
