From food to holiday snaps we all have 100s of photos on our phone. Everywhere you go there is someone snap happy shooting all  around them. And it’s great! We suddenly have a world where everyone is looking around them and finding something interesting to shoot.

So with all these new photography enthusiasts and with great quality cameras, why do you need a professional photographer?

Here are just 4 reasons why a professional photographer can improve your event.

Why You Need a Professional Photographer

Equipment

Have you ever been to an event and seen a photographer carrying two cameras with different lens on them?  That’s because different lenses can capture events in completely different ways, without compromising the quality of the photo.

In general a photographer has a lens to take close up crowd shots and a camera with a lens that takes great overview shots of the event.

 

A camera can’t see the world like we can. If you take a group photo on an overcast day the sky can be completely bleached out and the people bright, or the people can be dark and the sky can be bright.

Unlike phones, camera equipment is specifically designed to take the best possible photo it can hundreds of different lighting styles. With a camera and a flash you can easily allow for adjusting to light in any circumstances.

 

These image also are large high quality images, making them easy to adjust for different uses, magazines, leaflets, web, etc.

Ensuring the Photograph is Just Right

 It’s not just an expensive camera that makes the photo but the photographer. A professional photographer will portray the environment and atmosphere of an event in the photographs, a youthful atmosphere or corporate depending on branding and the required marketing of the client

From the top button on the shirt to the perfect background, to everyone smiling, a professional Lensmen photographer will ensure that everything looks great in a photograph. At a fast paced event with attendees coming and going, a PR photo could be easily ruined if someone forgets to move an empty glass or dustbin out of the way of the shoot, but an experience photographer will look out for all these minor details that can make or break a PR event.
