I love shooting conferences and get booked on a fairly regular basis by all sorts of different organisations. There are always things happening, from networking sessions, to people simply talking over coffee, right through to exhibition stands and VIP keynote speakers. The Foundation Trust Network's event was no different - dynamic, busy and really interesting.
My brief was to capture some of the important speakers and a feeling and mood of the event. Fortunately both the marketing manager and the press manager were at the event and led me to specific people and set-ups that they needed. Obviously, each had a slightly different audience, so we looked at their website for their in-house style for longer term usage, while VIPs and guests were pointed out for more immediate press requirements. Images were supplied during the day and hit the social pages of the Guardian and other papers in time for the second day of the conference. Finally I took some quick portraits of the new Chief Executive and covered the evening drinks reception.
Vivien at FTN gave the following feedback;
"A big thank you. Photos look good & you did a great job on the day"

"I have employed David for conferences, presentations, social engagements, marketing materials, open days, portrait shots, official document signings amongst many others. David has always been amenable to our sometimes short notice and has delivered our photos in a quick time frame as agreed and sometimes much quicker depending on our needs. He has always been very helpful, he follows and delivers on the brief and is able to give additional value to jobs with minimal briefs. I am more than happy to recommend David and he will no doubt deliver the same quality he provides us."
