One of the many things we enjoy covering are corporate black tie events. We provide full coverage from the candid capture of your guests enjoying the evening to the more personal posed portraits capturing everyone in their finery and splendour whether its an end of year corporate celebration to a full on awards event with celebrity attendance.
Recently we provided portrait coverage for the No Offence CIC annual Redemption & Justice awards ceremony at the prestigious The Brewery Venue situated in the East end of London. An event celebrating achievement, success and determination from people from a multitude of backgrounds, from those in deepest of despair to those at the top of ladder.
You can see a few of the images captured on the evening below and also a “behind the scenes” clip of the setup we can offer to add a different dimension to your corporate or charity event. Get in touch for details or see our website.
I had the huge honour of being asked to photograph the Aurora Cancer Charity Christmas Ball again this year. The event is a spectacular finale celebrating all their fundraising efforts over the year and awards are given to some very deserving finalists.
The charity rallies support from the local business community, health care professionals and those affected by cancer either directly or indirectly and monies raised goes towards funding the Aurora Wellbeing Centres. The centres exist to help anyone with a cancer diagnosis by offering a free package of well-being treatments to help raise their confidence and self-esteem and create a general sense of well being. More info can be found on their website.
The Christmas Ball was an evening of glitz, glamour and fun with a full three course meal, awards presentations and a lively disco. Our event Photo Booth proved to be popular once again and many people headed home with a mounted image from our onsite printing team.
It’s not very often you get to photograph a Guinness World Record Attempt but that exactly what i did back in April, yes sorry for the delay on this blog, its been a little busy 🙂
I was commissioned by North Notts Business Connections who put the event together in the hope of stealing the title of “The most people at a networking event” which was currently held by the Aussies. It needed a venue of mammoth proportions so where better to hold the event than the Newark Showground? This sprawling venue, which at one time used to be RAF Swinderby where i spent the early days of my RAF career, boasts multiple function rooms, more than ample parking and east access to to the A1.
The event was well attended by businesses from around the region involving 16 different networking groups but fell short of the required target to snatch the mantle from the Aussies but many businesses many many new contacts and im sure they will reap the rewards.
Back in September I was delighted to be asked to photograph a very special event for a very worthy Charity. The charity was very close to my heart as it helped in the treatment of my mother when she was fighting bladder cancer a few years ago. Weston Park Cancer Hospital Charity is one of only four dedicated cancer hospitals in England and is recognised for its work worldwide. Their profile has been raised further by their list of patrons and recently added the “Face of the 2012 Olympics” – Jessica Ennis-Hill, Sheffield’s very own World Heptathlon Champion and Olympic Gold Medallist.
Their work does come at a price and the charity embarks and a regime of fundraising events throughout the year and it was this years “Light the Night” event which I was asked to photograph. Jessica Ennis-Hill was their special guest for the evening who was invited to start the event and also meet some of the charity fundraisers. The evening event turned Ecclesall Woods into a torch-lit woodland wonderland with hundreds of people following the trail. A video and full photo-gallery can be found on the charity website. I’m sure they would love to see you at next years event.
It was a huge privilege photographing this event and gave me the opportunity to give a little back to the charity that helped my mother with her battle against cancer. Sadly she succumbed to the illness in 2006 but with the voluntary efforts of all those involved and the huge amount raised the charity can continue their work for many more that need it.
If you would like more information about our photography check out our website. If you are a charity and are holding an event or awards ceremony our attendance is very often FREE so please do get in touch, we would love to hear from you.
The guests were treated to a fabulous meal and evening entertainment by the dance cabaret group The Fire Swans. The evening highlights and recognises the best of Bassetlaw Business and there were many worthy finalists and winners from a wide business sector.
