This photo shows Queen Elizabeth II and her husband Prince Philip, the Duke of Edinburgh, arriving at Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. With them are His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and Prince Andrew, the Duke of York. It is always an honor for me (and my camera!) to attend events such as this. In my quest to be the best Event Photographer NYC has to offer, however, I never lose sight of the importance each event holds for each of my clients. So, whether it’s a high-profile affair brimming over with well-known personalities or a small gathering to show off a startup’s newest product to investors – I treat both with extreme professionalism. I plan for each event and a big part of the planning process is the consultation I have with my clients before the “big day”. Even when time or my client’s schedule do not allow for going over all the details, I still like to have a few quick questions ready so I can effectively gauge the tone the event will take and hence the style of photos required of me. The pre-event consultation really is the best way to ensure that the pictures I produce will meet (and often exceed) my client’s expectations. Like any other top-quality Event Photographer in NYC, I arrive at the venue with plenty of time to spare and with all the necessary equipment in tow. There are some basic pictures that every event photography gig tends to require: wide angle shots of the venue and attendees; any special displays or significant items; and of course, the key people at the event. Aside from those essentials, good event photographers will also give you some shoots that involve some degree of creativity, such as shooting the same scene from various angles or vantage points. As a result, clients have plenty of great pictures to select from once the event is over.
