One of the things I love about my job is working with returning clients who ask me to shoot for them again and again. I’ve worked with Edelman on event photography in a number of different departments over the past 4 years and their annual Trust Barometer Survey is one of the most interesting ones. The survey gauges the public’s trust in business and political life. With a jam-packed room, web streaming and live twitter feed, invited guests and speakers network at Edelman’s beautiful offices and discuss the information in the survey’s findings to see how belief and confidence in business and politics can be improved across the globe.
Richard Edelman, Global President and Ed Williams, UK CEO presented the global and UK findings followed by Lord Browne’s inaugural Trust Lecture. He was also joined on the panel by Lord Turner, former Chairman of the FSA. These guys really know what they’re talking about. Listening to them and joining in with the final Q+A session were PR professionals and journalists. The awesome interactive live twitter feed allowed information to be shared immediately – wether funny, compelling, shocking or intriguing, these little snippets take the action from the 200 people in the room and push it out to the world wide web to bring the survey’s findings to the wider public.
Having professional photos at an event like this is crucial, and for Edelman time is of the essence. I take my laptop with me and edit the vital shots immediately after the event so they can have them as quickly as possible. Having been in corporate photography for a number of years now, they can trust me (get it?!) to give them full coverage of the event, wide shots of their set and the lovely full room, medium shots of panel interaction and interesting individual shots of the speakers that I know will be useful to them.
Looking forward to joining Edelman for more event photography later this year and for many years to come. Get in touch about your event using my contact page or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
