Because NY City is home to so many international businesses, corporate financial conferences & meetings are held here daily. Usually the services of a professional photographer experienced in conference & meeting photography is hired. As a NYC photojournalist, I enjoy this type of special event photography because the photo coverage is journalistic and unposed.
First I’ll shoot wide shots of the room to document the setting. Then cover a variety of wide angle shots of the panels, as well as close-ups of the individual speakers. Often there is a networking lunch or break-out sessions on specific topics, which is a great time for casual photos that often end up in social media.
All corporate special events are a great networking opportunity for participants, often afford an expense-paid trip to New York City, and are a win-win for all participants who seek to learn more and become experts in their fields.
