Choosing The Right Event Photographer

Image is everything in business, that’s why choosing the right Event Photographer for your Corporate Event is so important.

There are several key factors you should look for in a professional photographer, and proven experience is the first thing on the list.

Specialised Event Photographer

Not all photographers are created equal and a one size fits all approach isn’t always appropriate.

Choose an Photographer who specialises in events. This means that the team shooting your corporate party, awards gala, product launch or fundraising event will have the right cameras, lenses and lighting to create the perfect set of images for your business.

Experienced Event Photographer

Take some time to review the portfolio and galleries of your potential Event Photographer.

The proof is always in the pudding, which means that an experienced Event Photographer will have a volume of work to review. Check out their social media too as these sites will typically have their most recent shoots online.

Each event has it’s own unique set of challenges, for example, an outdoor event requires a different approach to an indoor event. An experienced Event Photographer will rise to the occasion every time and will adapt without breaking a sweat. They will navigate the challenges professionally and discreetly, so you and your guest can enjoy the party.

Is Your Event Photographer Easy To Talk To?

The best way to gauge if an Event Photographer is a good fit for your organisation is to schedule a phone call and chat about what you’re looking for.

An Event Photographer should be easy to talk to, knowledgable, professional but also fun. Your photographer should listen to your brief and make suggestions to help create a seamless event, because at the end of the day they will be representing your brand.

Photo Style

Every photographer has their own shooting style so consider what style of photos you’d like for your event. If their portfolio best incorporates the style of photos you’d like to represent your business, then book them without hesitation.

Great Event Photographers are often booked well in advance, this means that if you like what you see, lock them in before someone else does.


Pricing is a tricky thing to consider. We all want the best price for any service, but cheaper doesn’t always mean better. In fact if you receive a quote for Event Photography that seems too good to be true, it probably is.

There are so many factors that come into play when quoting a photography job. The length of the shoot, how many photographers are needed, travel time and parking, the level of editing needed, gallery hosting.
