Getting Started in Event Photography

Getting Started in Event Photography

This safari is offered through our partnership with Capital Photography Center.

Are you the person they turn to in the office when there is a birthday party, an awards ceremony, a visit by the Chairman of the Board. Why?  Because you are the ONLY person who knows how to operate the office camera!  So bring your camera (or the office camera), plus all your lenses and your flash unit and join us on a special safari that will train you to take more professional pictures of office events AND will help you turn those pictures into images that tell a STORY to make your PR Director happy.

Given in an office-type environment by professional photographer E. David Luria (who – in his murky past - was once good-ole-Dave-the-office-photographer of HIS office! ) this safari will cover topics such as how to pose people, white balance issues, use of flash on Manual Mode, choice of backgrounds, shooting group portraits, how to cover office conferences and meetings, “grip & grin” award ceremonies, and candid shots of co-workers that show the interaction on the job or in the field.

Also, if you want to learn how to cover association meetings and conventions as a professional event photographer (a job that pays very well in the DC area), this safari will help you get the skills you need.

Mr. Luria, who has photographed conventions for several corporations and association meetings in DC, San Francisco, New Orleans and Boston, will also review recommended equipment needs for this type of photography.
