Why a professional event photographer is required for your event?
Event photography (including corporate, sports, weddings, etc) is one of the most strenuous genres there is in the photography arena.  These events generally happen only once and missing a key shot is just out of the question.
We have realised photography & videography services are often given lower priority in the execution of the event.  Budgeting and timing are mostly ignored until the last minute.  These all lead to hiring amateurs (or inexperienced professionals) who can produce undesired imagery or coverage that does not meet your expectations for the event.
The photographer is not there just to press a button when they see something happening !
A professional event photographer knows his/her:
- Event Brief
- Clients Expectation
- Equipment (including backup gear)
- Position (when working in a team)
- Software skills to deliver images on time
He/She is able to travel light within the event....which affects how they travel (internationally/aircraft) as well.
We provide experienced professionals who offer reliable service consistently.  They will use the latest professional cameras, lenses & lighting to cover your entire event.

What would we need at your event?
