Storytelling event photography

With a background in photojournalism and a passion for storytelling, I specialize in documenting events from both an editorial and marketing perspective.

 

The end goal is always considered first: where will the photos be used, who is the intended audience, and how will the images portray the values and strengths of your organization?

Through strong and meaningful storytelling photography, corporate events are a powerful avenue to create image banks for annual reports, business branding, and internal documentation.

 

For this purpose I use a fly-on-the-wall approach to cover the full scope of your event in an un-obtrusive manner, while maintaining a friendly and engaging demeanour with staff and participants.
