The best business is repeat business and I am happy to say that many of my clients keep coming back to me for conference photography, which is a really good sign that my service levels are right up there.
Last week I was down at the Wild Coast Sun to photograph the Fresh Stop annual conference for the second time. I first covered this conference in 2012 and they asked me back again this year. It was a very interesting event for me to photograph, especially on the speaker side of things as I got the opportunity to hear some of SA’s best motivational and keynote speakers, including Michael Jackson, who I have photographed before at an Acer Computers event, as well as Gavin Sharples who I have to say is one of the funniest guys I have ever heard speaking.
Photographing people on stage is very challenging, especially when they’re moving around quickly, which Gavin Sharples did a lot of! He even went off stage into the audience several times, which presented me with some great photo opportunities, none of which I think I could have pulled off without the Olympus gear I was using. I did miss quite a few, but I also got some great shots of him.
The Conference was a great success for Fresh Stop and I am certain that this dynamic company will continue to grow their awesome brand in South Africa.
