Event Photography Styles

Our style, approach and technical ability make us stand apart from other event photographers. 

Capturing special moments that are ephemeral and spontaneous.

We all know and see these ‘decisive moments’. They provide a running narrative for the event, showing fun, excitement and lively conversations at celebratory events. We capture more serious moments of connections and engagements during conferences and staff away days. Matthew captures these candid moments in a natural and relaxed style. This approach to event photography conveys the atmosphere and tone of an event.

Event Compares, Guest Speakers, Award Winners and Celebrity Presenters

An important part of any event are the speeches and presentations that take place on the stage. Matthew captures the moments that visually explain to the viewer, emotion and sentiment through the gestures, expressions and posture of the presenter.  We try to avoid using flash during the speeches. Are camera equipment and lenses we use are always the very best and we know which camera settings to use to get clear sharp images.

Posed Event Photography / Group Photographs

It is inevitable, guests and officials want posed shots for PR and as a momento of the occasion. It provides additional value and having a polite professional photographer at your event raises the status a notch. Matthew photographs groups in a way that conveys the mood of an event. He knows how and where to pose people to get the best shot. Photography of group winners, VIPs and celebrities is a great social media asset that extents the event beyond its date.

Events are over in the blink of an eye. We provide a lasting record that reflects the different aspects of your event.

  • Audience reactions and interactions.
  • Speaker and presenters passion and gestures
  • Sponsors, clients and stakeholders engaging with guests and enjoying the occasion
