I’ve been photographing events in London for close to ten years. It feels mad when I write that sentence down and read it. Time can fly past so fast so take a moment once in a while and smell the roses!
My first major event photography shoot in London was a ball for a luxury watch retailer. It was hosted at Victoria House on Bloosmbury Square and as soon as I’d received the booking I realised that my kit wasn’t going to be up to the job. The thing with event photography is that you need fast equipment which will work well in low light conditions. The thing with this kind of equipment is that it costs a small fortune!
I really wanted to commit to event photography so I basically maxed out any credit cards I could lay my hands on and invested in what I needed. Things worked out pretty well for me and I’ve since had loads of jobs for that specific client which in turn has helped me attract other clients and has put me where I am today.
I’ve dusted off my archive drives and found these two shots from my first event photography in London shoot. I’ve not looked at them for a while and I must say I’m pretty happy with them. Ten years ago though!?! That’s just crazy.
