These days everyone has a smartphone and odds are attendees will use them to snap candid photos during your events. These photos are great for sharing to social media and creating online engagement, but they shouldn’t be a substitute for hiring a professional event photographer. Here are three ways a professional photographer can take your event to the next level:
- Storage for Marketing – A professional photographer can take over 1,000 photos in just one day of an event. Of course, not all will be amazing, but if you can keep 120 great photos that’s money well spent and provides great collateral for future events.
- High Quality –Investing in a professional photographer means you’re also investing in their professional equipment to capture and edit photos of your event. This can help catch the eyes of future attendees and potential sponsors. Smartphone cameras have come a long way in recent years but they’re still no match for a photographer’s equipment.
- Form of Art –A good photographer knows how to tell a story that’s both beautiful and engaging no matter where a photo is taken. A professional photographer will take in everything from your event’s setting such as the venue, people, colors, and sounds and use it to best convey your event’s message. Remember to discuss this with the photographer beforehand so they have a sense of the message you’re looking to communicate as well.
Professional photography will showcase your event in a way that keeps those involved excited to see how the next event will be brought to life. What qualities do you look for when hiring a professional event photographer? Comment below and let us know!
