With so many great Adirondack Mountain conference locations in the Lake George NY area, it’s no wonder you are looking for a Lake George conference photographer.
There are many, many meeting, event and retreat locations in the Adirondack Mountains. From small and intimate conferences to larger scale multi day conventions, there are accommodations to suit.
This part of the Adirondack mountains is a popular destination for conventions and business meetings.
And you need a great photographer to document it all for you.
Experience, ideas and support.
Let me count the ways!
EXPERIENCE: First and foremost, I am a business photography specialist. Go ahead, yes please do it right now: Take a little detour around my website and the accompanying blog. You’ll see a direct focus on the types of photography that businesses need for their communications projects, their websites, blogs and social media. As well as for use in or distribution to business and trade publications. I’m a business photography specialist with an understanding of the types of images businesses need. You aren’t looking at the work, right now, of someone who lists a million different types of photography on their website. You have probably already seen them. The types of photographers who primarily cater to consumer portraits and social-event photography that the general public usually attends. Lifetime milestone photography. None of that here. Just a photographer with years of serving businesses, associations, publications and industry.
And a subset of that business photography concentration and focus is my meeting, event and corporate event photography for businesses, organizations and associations. You’ll see lots of those exact types of photos on the pages of my website portfolio.
You see, I work for marketing departments. Directors of corporate communications. Advertising and public relations agencies. I understand business communications needs.
And with me you get a well experienced full time photographer who serves business clients. I’ve been a full time photographer for a few decades. It’s the only wayI have ever earned all of my income. Well, except for running a small painting business to help get myself through college.
IDEAS: Having the deep experience that I do means I can offer you ideas as your Lake George and Adirondack meeting photographer. These ideas may come in the forum of input I can offer you months before an event happens. Since I’ve been to so many events and business meetings all over the country, I can give you thoughts and input based on having ‘been there and done that’ before. I’ve certainly seen a lot of how meetings and conventions go and can respond to challenges way before we set foot on the premises or can act as needed right in the middle of the event.
This ability to generate ideas and to have ideas in response to on the spot challenges is a huge differentiator between me, the specialist, and that generalist photographer you may have found who happens to live close to the location where you will be hosting your event.
SUPPORT: Knowing how to think through your schedule of events lets me support you by offering ways to handle various situations. It also allows me to respond on-site to challenges. Knowing how to get you your images via a delivery method that fits your needs, or works within your schedule, means you will be able to forget about me, knowing you’ll be getting the meeting photography in Lake George or the surrounding region that you need. And, I support you right down to getting you the paperwork and billing documentation that you need … sometimes before you know you even need it!
My foundation of experience is from a couple decades as a full time news photographer. So I’m agile in terms of being able to handle tough technical situations or move quickly during an event to get the photos you need with a minimum of disruption. You won’t have to tell me “there are windows near one side of the hall”, worrying that I won’t be able to handle it. You won’t have to worry that I don’t have the depth of professional equipment that one should have when doing this sort of work.
Being unobtrusive is a well tuned skill from my years of working as a full time photojournalist. So, while there are times that working as a Lake George meeting photographer that I’ll have to be “right our front”, you largely won’t notice me. It’s a skill, working smoothly and quickly so that people just forget about you as you photograph and event.
But asI outlined above, it doesn’t end there, just having the skill to work quietly. I help plan in advance, working through the coverage needs of a business meeting, helping create a plan that will let me get you the photos you need without having to rush around last minute to figure it all out. Or worse, looking over and seeing your Adirondack convention photographer sitting around waiting to be told what to do.
I’ve covered events all over New York state and the northeast.
Sure, I can make the quick group photos you need. But my experience allows me to use unobtrusive lighting to improve those stiff podium shots, or improve the ‘presenters in front of the screen’ photos that are inevitably needed. This lighting skill allows me to create great group and formal photos that are lit well and are a notch above the competition in terms of professionalism and visual appeal. Today’s cameras can make images in dimmer and dimmer conditions, sure. But lousy lighting doesn’t make great photos. This isn’t undercover surveillance we’re doing. You want photos that look great and are of great technical quality.
You’ll have a variety of images from me from every event that will help fill up your internal websites and your external public relations needs. And as a former news photographer, I can make the types of images that third party editors will want to run, and run big in their publications.
And I’d be very interested in learning about the event you are planning
Let’s speak or correspond as soon as you can fit it in your schedule. It is best if I hear about your event as early as you can reach out to me. Then I can help you with the advance planning. And can offer ideas and suggestions for making it all happen smoothly.
As a meeting and event photography specialist in Lake George I can easily and quickly complete or provide necessary paperwork to become a vendor to your company. And I can provide a certificate of insurance to venues which usually require proof of liability insurance before they will allow a vendor to work on their property.
