So who is going to photograph your upcoming fabulous corporate event? After the lists upon lists have been checked off, and last-minute details finalized, how do you find that perfect fit to capture all the hard work you’ve done so effortlessly? We have put together an essential checklist for you to review and ease the search. Along with a couple of innovative ideas to try at your next corporate event!
Pre- Event Checklist:
Day of Checklist:
✔ Ensure you have a schedule for all day/evening events so that you can prioritize.
✔ Make sure you have provided a shot list, for example from the front desk/registration, event signage (free advertising), host/speakers, organizers, VIP’s etc. Basically whoever you want pictures of make sure they make it on your shot list. Also remind the photographer that it’s important to get the feeling of the event. After it’s all said and done capturing candid shots are a must!
✔ It’s a photographers job to ensure they have what they need (and then some) but don’t forget to save a place for setup, tear down and store extra gear. Also provide plenty of time to be able to get camera ready.
✔ Taking names is a must! Make sure your photographer grabs the names of people in single or group shots for social media purposes or for use later on in publication, websites, etc.
Lastly, some cool and innovative ideas to set your photos apart from just any old corporate event could be to use a drone. This popular device captures dramatic angles and aerial views of large groups. GoPro is another option, as it adds a personal touch with someone who knows the event better than anyone else!
