Corporate events encompass a wide array of circumstances and combines all my skills in one. The title might seem “boring” for some but my most enjoyable jobs have been under this category. You need to have a photojournalistic approach like weddings which includes anticipating big moments and capture them as they unfold. You need to possess the ability to work under any circumstances especially from the bright outdoors to low light situations.
Sometimes I need my commercial background in photographing a new product. I must be engaging with the crowd to get the proper responses. Sometimes I need to do portraits or large groups and have to communicate well with people. Each event is different. I have had the pleasure of photographing 5k’s, basic luncheons and company meetings, charity events, store openings, award ceremonies, trade shows, presentations, product launches, team building days and more.
A lot of the time, money and coordinating goes into event planning. They can be stressful with so many working cogs interlocking each other. Photography being one of them. Once I am hired, the event coordinator will no longer stress about photography. All the time and money spent organizing will be documented to the highest level. I make sure they are at ease, with consults prior to event. Sometimes I will scout out the locations or venues and I always do my research to be prepared.
I average 20-25 events a year and they include national brands such as Lifetime Athletic, The Home Depot, and the American Heart Assoc. More importantly are the local companies who rely on me multiple times a year. I am most proud of Children’s Friend, a non profit organization who does so much good for the youth in Rhode Island. A company which I have had the pleasure of working 3-4 yearly events for 4 years.
For a couple of years now the American Heart Association has entrusted me with their annual “Lawyers have Heart” 5k at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion. “Greg was wonderful. On time, professional, courteous to all our volunteers and so flexible with any day of changes, we plan to use him again soon!!!!”
“Greg did a terrific job; I received so many compliments from our guests on how professional and personable he was. He covered our entire event and the pictures are great. I would highly recommend Greg and would definitely hire him again” – Cort Furniture
