Event Photography BrisbaneProfessional Event Photographer
All the significance and spontaneity of your event reflected in our images
Joseph Byford Photography is one of Brisbane’s most popular event photographers with a reputation built on long and wide-ranging experience and the continued endorsement of a loyal and happy client base.
Event assignments come in all shapes and sizes – corporate functions, race day luncheons, gala receptions, product and season launches, PR, community and media events, festivals, food shows, opening nights, fashion parades and private parties. They form a central component of the services I offer, and they’re always a real pleasure to shoot.
I arrive early and follow the client’s brief and my own instincts to record images. For commercial or corporate events I focus on guest arrivals, celebrities, special guests and VIPs, socials and media wall step-and-repeat, opening addresses, welcome to country and keynote speakers, both on and off the podium, entertainment, dancing, branding, wide venue shots, table settings, decorations and food service, and very importantly, audience and guest interactions and responses – candids are key.
Event photography is charged at an hourly rate with no additional costs for images or editing. If the client requests a specific dress code I am always happy to comply, otherwise I aim for smart and unobtrusive.
Images in both high and low resolution are delivered securely and punctually. Early images can be supplied for quick, in-the-moment social media postings. See more of my core services here.
I take my clients’ public image very seriously.
All events, both corporate and private, involve considerable planning, time and expense. With Joseph Byford Photography, clients can feel confident that the images recalling the event, immediately afterwards and into the future, will represent them or their company in the best possible light.
Our event photography services can meet all your corporate and special events photography needs. We are happy to follow a shot list or detailed brief, or we’ll use our own initiative and experience to achieve blanket coverage of your event. For commercial and corporate events we focus on VIPs, celebrities, keynote speakers and guests of honour, social shots, candid audience and guest interactions and responses, food service, decorations, entertainment and wide angle venue images. We are always careful to target relevant branding, crowds, and the enthusiastic engagement of guests and attendees.
An important aspect of our work involves engaging with guests in a friendly manner, so they will feel comfortable having a camera around. This helps everyone to relax and enables us to achieve the best, most natural results possible.
As a professional photographer I understand that punctuality and following the brief are just as important as producing professional photographs. Clients can always rely on me to arrive early and be prepared with all their specific requests in mind. I want to ensure your day runs as smoothly as you planned.
I aim to look smart and unobtrusive on assignment. However, I’m also happy to follow specific dress codes for events if requested by the client.
