How to plan corporate events

For both event planners and photographers, what happens before the event is just as important as what happens during. Excellent preparation in the event planning stage of the process can make things run seamlessly on the day.

The professional photographer starts with getting to know the purpose of the business or corporate event. For example, some events are held for the purposes of marketing and promotion or Trade Shows for example. While others are conducted for team building and employee development such as workshops. Many events are to thank their corporate clients with a gala party and celebrate their success.

Where to get help on writing a corporate event photography brief?

If you are an event or marketing manager and you run corporate events you may already have a solid photography brief. We’ve got hand template and examples.

A brief is a comprehensive but concise description of the mood, purpose or vibe you’re trying to create at the event. The brief usually includes a list of ‘must haves’ and a few things you prefer avoided.

If you don’t have a brief and you are short on time you can rely on our corporate event photographer to know what shots to capture. We’ve photographed this type of event many times before. We’ve got you covered.

At large corporate events and parties you may have a media person at the show. If they can roam with the photographer and point out some additional key people such as the VIPs and sponsors that is also a good idea. Team work will help in getting exactly what you need.
