Are You Looking for a Photographer in Dublin to Cover Your Event, Conference, Open Day, Awards Ceremony or Graduation?

Hello and thank you for visiting my website highlighting some of my event photography images. This gallery shows a variety of images from all types of events.

As an event photographer it is very important to be versatile and adaptable. There is usually only one chance to get a particular shot. It is important to be aware of what is happening at all times and try to anticipate what is coming next to position yourself for that shot.

Getting That Professional Photograph
To get a great looking professional image I only use the most advanced camera and lenses available. Where possible if a prime lens can be used I will use it. The sharpness and clarity of the image is noticeably of a higher quality than even the most expensive zoom. A prime lens also allows me to work in lower light or set the the ISO at a lower level to create a higher quality image. A prime lens will usually create a more beautiful bokeh if that kind of effect is required.

Always Be Prepared
It is always helpful to discuss with the organisers of an event what is likely to happen get a rough timeline or running order of the event. This will allow you to assess the venue and where are good places for a photographer to position themselves. Where is there good natural light. If there isn't is it appropriate to use a flash or would this cause a distraction.

In the gallery to the right you can see a cross section of my event photography work. There is everything here from the Taoiseach Leo Varadkar to the homecoming of the Dublin GAA team after winning the Sam Maguire to the President Michael D Higgins to Charity fundraisers and Fashion shows and many more different types of events.

Know What Equipment is Required
The events covered as you can see are diverse and the challenges getting good images is also as diverse. For example if you are covering a concert using a flash would be totally inappropriate as it is a distraction to the audience and performers.

In a concert situation you need a fast camera with a wide open prime lens and a very steady hand as your shutter speed will be as slow as possible to let in the most light. There is no control over what is happening so as an event photographer you need to anticipate what might happen next. The images of Aslan show this.

Then you have the opposite say at a school where there may be an exhibition or open day. Here you will have the co-operation of everyone and they will stand and pose for you and usually you will have a short amount of time to take a few photographs and make changes to the composition of the photograph to get the best image.

Here you have much more control over the light and it is normally fine to use flash as a fill in light to create a better image. There are some examples of this here when Taoiseach Leo Varadkar visited a school in his constituency

Dealing with the General Public
Then there are times where an event will have members of the general public that are unaware a photographer may ask them if it is ok to take a photograph of them at the event. Here the challenge is not only to take a good photograph but to approach your potential subject in a friendly manner to gain their trust and make them feel at ease. You probably will only have a few seconds to do this and get the image required.

However, if you can gain their trust and other people at the event see someone enjoying themselves they then quite often will want their picture taken as well. It is not often they would get a chance for a professional photographer to take their photograph and thankfully they are usually surprised at how much better it can look than an image taken with a mobile device by an enthusiastic amateur. There are more examples of these types of images here at the opening of Funderland last year in Dublin.
