In this video I share one of my favorite techniques for creating great event photographs. As a photojournalist I often found myself uninspired when faced with yet another event. I would remind myself of the tri-angle method and by the time I had taken my third shot I would be engaged with the event and thinking of new creative photography ideas.
In 2006 I was named the best event photographer in Michigan by Meetings and Events Magazine. Honestly, that is old news. I’ve always taken it with a grain of salt. But, if I’m going to share my experience it’s certainly one for the resume.
My photojournalism background has made photographing events second nature. I don’t do as many smaller events as I used to. I tend to have my team members photograph smaller events.
I do enjoy photographing the larger multi-day corporate events. Not because of the long hours or the fact my feet are always sore after hours on the move. I like these events because I always seem to learn something new and meet interesting people.
That is one of the reasons I enjoy photojournalism and people photography too.
