Photographic Prints and the Corporate Sector

Recently I was asked by one of my clients who I do various corporate group shots for to do the artworks and printing for a group photograph she was arranging abroard at a conference. As a photographer for conferences that includes group photos what I usually handle is the artwork for the script and the corrections needed for the final print run.

On this occasion the conference was held in Shanghai, China so my client had organised a local photographer to come and take the photo (adhering to some detailed instruction from myself). There was some urgency to get the process moving so to save time I asked for the Raw images to be sent to me via my upload server soon after the event.

Now I had all that I needed to start making the image. I managed in a short time to send a proof back to the company who was still in Shanghai to approve and then set the process for the actual quantity print run.

While my client was on a flight back from Shanghai, that was about a ten hour duration, I had this order completed so there was no delay in getting this to the company to send out to the individuals. With all the digital world thrust upon us in recent years this could have been done as a digital file and just pinged into people inbox, but somehow that would to me shows a cheapness about doing it the first place. I think its great that a large corporate company still values the “corporate group photo” still done in a traditional way.

My Shot Made Front Cover Again!

Having done various photographic assignments for the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce recently I was asked to join them at a Black Tie event at the Marriott Hanbury Manor Hotel for their Global Dinner event with speeches from manufacturing sectors of business.

The main topic was Brexit… discussing the positives for a bright future… here the editor of the Inspire bimonthly magazine from the Chamber used one of my images from the evening for the front cover as well as some in the two page article written within.

Conference Assignment at the ACC Liverpool

Earlier this month I was asked to go to the home of the “Beatles” for a conference at the ACC in Liverpool. This was quite exciting for me because with all the places I have ever been around the world doing my chosen career path I have never been to Liverpool.

This was a three day affair including travel. Ohh the delights of the M6 with road works! But working at the ACC was a delight and was an easy venue to navigate for a pro tog such as myself. The conference went extremely well and the evenings entertainment and dinner event was well received by the company group with various acts in a large event area with music supplied by the tribute Beatles Band who were amazingly good. So that evening was work for me but no way seemed a chore but was fun. That’s why I do this job, you never know what around the next corner!
