International Festival for Business Photographer - IFB 2016

Published on Thu Jul 7, 2016 by

June for me just whizzed by - it was a busy month of shooting events and conferences at the Liverpool International Festival for Business. Covering a couple of the larger conferences, there was a great range of different speakers and loads of networking opportunties, which make for great natural photos.

Clients nearly always want a range of images, from that big wide shots of the whole auditorium, to close up details of branding and registration areas. As well as informal images of seminars, break out rooms and coffee gatherings. Of course, the 'must have' shots of all the speakers are essential - and again a good selection of portrait and landscape images are great. I also try to work with clients to ensure we get some images with areas for copy or text to be dropped in. And at the brief stage I ask about usage - for example some clients want images for particular online slide shows, which might be unusual dimensions - ie wide but not very high.

Conference photography in Liverpool is an expanding part of my business, especially with the opening up of the Liverpool Exhibition Centre facility. There really is a conference for everything these days - from radiology in the NHS to comic conventions, through to UK exports events.

If you need a conference photographer then do feel free to send me a email to check if I am available to cover your event. I travel across the UK for commissions, so even if the location is London and we factor in travel, I'm sure I will able to offer a competitive quote.

Colour reflection experiments

Inspired by some recent colour and reflection experiments when on a holiday in Newcastle, I've had a delve back through my archive and found some nice image contrasts.

Exhibition Stand Photography at Trade Shows and Conferences

I have been photographing exhibition stands for many years and just realised I have never really posted about it before. Perhaps a few images in the end of year review, or as part of a bigger conference job. But I've been commissioned recently by a few stand designers and thought I would write some thoughts and highlight some favourite images from the archive.

"Had a really great photo shoot with David, punctual, professional and put me at ease straight away. I couldn't have asked for more and the results speak for themselves, excellent pictures, perfect for Spotlight! Will be calling again, thank you."
