“Events happen at least twice, on the day and in the memory of it. We make the second time as clear as the first.”
To photograph events well you really need to like people. You need to 'see' what's going on around you.
Talking to people, making them feel at ease, smiling, engaging means people don't see the camera anymore… they see me.
I wait, I watch, I see the great time people have and I capture that.
All the hard work, the joy, laughter and importance is gone without cataloguing and saving it in images to be recalled and enjoyed again.
Are you event images vibrant and full of emotion and life?
