Last night I was commissioned to photograph a 21st birthday party and had a ball. My instructions were to not get in anyones face and just shoot the fun and festivities. Well that’s what I love about events photography. Just prowling around the venue with my camera and Telephoto lens to find those guests who look like they are having a ball and show that they are interacting with the party.
These are the kind of shots I like to take so when the client looks at the images, They see powerful memories of a party that was a lot of fun for everyone.
There is a sense of pride when the organiser sees that their even has been a huge success.
For me, I try to stay in the background but I know I’m having an impact when the guests request a photo with the party photographer. It makes me feel a bit loved.
