Every company has its important events, like the inauguration of a new office, or the announcement of new management. The proceedings of most of these events need to be distributed to the employees as well as the media, for which you need images. This is where event photographers play an important role.
Photography for an event is a completely different skill, as compared to other forms of this art like nature photography or studio photography. This is basically because events take place quickly and the photographer has no say in the happenings. The task involved in shooting an event requires know-how and a professional attitude on part of the photographer and not everyone can do a good job at it. But most significantly, an event photographer hardly ever gets a second chance at a shot.
Quite obviously, you have to be very cautious while selecting an event photographer to cover a company event. He must have impressive accuracy and good technical know-how of light settings for the camera, as most company events take place in covered halls. You should also make sure that the photographer does not bring with him a bad quality camera with low resolution or lack of adaptability to lesser light.
You will save yourself a lot of hassle if you go to an established firm, which will provide you the services of an experienced photographer. You should check the previous work of the photographer and his experience in covering similar events in the past. A good agency should also be able to offer you client references of past work.
Lastly, you should attempt to acquaint yourself with the selected event photographer and let the photographer know your requirements in detail. This step is the most critical, as without proper communication it would be impossible for the photographer to know what your exact needs are, and for you to be assured of good output. In addition, a detailed discussion would put the event photographer at ease and he would be able to come well prepared for the job.
