Lights, Camera, Action! : Event Photography

causa1

So far since Living in London I have been invited to a few events to take photographs based in conference centres, sports clubs and even an embassy. I’ve realised that this involves a lot of preparation to make sure that the moment is captured and not forgotten. As with any kind of work for a client understanding what is required beforehand (what kind of photos will be used and what story will be told through the photos)  is important then selecting the right tools and preparing for eventualities (failing memory cards, batteries and other technical issues as well as lighting including the weather). There is always something to learn and incorporates different genres of photography including life style to capture the moment as well as portraits. Living in a city like London there are always opportunities to take event photographs to many styles from corporate meetings, social parties and charity events.

At the beginning of May I attended the ‘Almuerzo Criollo’ charity event hosted by the Anglo Peruvian Society at the Thames Rowing Club in Putney, London  for Amantani UK and took my Fuji X100T a long to take photos.

Thank you to the Anglo Peruvian Society for letting me capture the event. The photos can be found on my events page

Life in London: Seeing the Streets

 

After living in London for 6 years and 2 of them without making use of a camera I took up photography properly in 2013 with the idea of seeing London from a different perspective – behind the lens. Stopping and noticing everyday life of the city and how it can be captured and appreciated. This can be seen in my London at night: Low light street photos and London Lives collection

Over the last few years I have discovered photography has opened many doors and have taken many photos and made many friends in different walks of life all through my interest in photography. I like to capture the moment and so street photography interests me. I also really enjoy portrait, fashion and event photography – trying to capture the personalities of my subjects and actual moments shown in Portraits about town and the Studio Portraits collections

This blog is  my thoughts in words and my pictures and aim to constantly update the links above and add many more.
