Event Photography – ICOM conference

Last month I was back down in that there London providing some more event photography for the British Museum.  Previously I have covered events in relation to specific exhibitions (‘Hajj: Journey to the heart of Islam’ and ‘Shakespeare: Staging the World’) but this time it was to cover a conference being hosted by the British Museum and the ‘International Council Of Museums’ (ICOM). The delegates and speakers were from museums and similar organisations from around the UK attending ‘Working Internationally’ to discuss and learn about working with overseas organisations for mutual benefit. From my position the event seemed to go very well and there was a real buzz among the attendees afterwards.

I was commissioned to photograph the one day seminar and to capture the speakers and attendees during the conference, workshops and the general interaction and networking taking place around the scheduled events.

As with previous jobs at the museum, the lighting was a general challenging but as the speakers were lit by stage lighting it was made a little easier this time! Conferences are never the most exciting things to photograph but I really enjoyed this one as the topics being discussed were interesting and the speakers were very engaging (which also makes better photographs!).  Here are a selection of images from the event:

Event Photography – Shakespeare Exhibition

After providing the British Museum with some event photography services earlier in the year, it was great to be asked back by them to provide coverage of another one of their fantastic events. This time I was asked to cover an event centred around their ‘Shakespeare staging the world‘ exhibition. Again they would be inviting various schools and community groups to view the exhibition and to attend a number of related workshops and I was asked to capture images of the visitors interacting with the exhibition and participating in the workshops. The images were to be used in internal publications, reports and general marketing materials.

I love providing this type of event photography as it throws up some great technical challenges (particularly in the low light of the exhibitions) and I get to capture some great portraits of people really enjoying themselves (I also get to learn a few things from the exhibitions!).

Event Photography – British Museum

Last week I was down in that there London doing some event photography for the British Museum. They wanted some documentary style event photography with a creative twist to record an event that was being held centred around their Hajj exhibition. The images were to be used in internal publications, reports and general marketing materials.

The exhibition itself was held in the reading room and was very dark in terms of photography so it was quite a challenge to photograph the visitors and groups interacting with the exhibition. One of the briefs was to try and capture the feeling of people moving around the exhibition and so I set up with a tripod for some shots and used a longer exposure to get motion blur on the various people walking around the space. Another brief was to capture some images of the school groups who had been invited to the event as they carried out some of their assignment work, so I set up in some of the better lit areas to get those shots.

In addition to the exhibition photography I was also asked to provide some general event photography for some of the workshops that were taking place in different locations across the museum.

If you have an event that that you would capturing in a creative and unique way, please get in touch using the contact page and I’ll get back to you to arrange some time so we can have a chat to see if there is an opportunity for us to work together.
