Promotion & coverage for all types of events!

Since first becoming a professional photographer by means of event photography requests, I’ve always set out to be the best photographer I could possibly be. No matter the environment or circumstance, I’ve prided myself on being prepared for every moment and always “getting the shot.”

Several years and several hundred event assignments later, I can now say that few situations challenge me as a photographer today. From crowded pressure-filled professional sporting events to deafening concerts in erratically-lit venues, my aim is consistent – filter out the noise and capture the images that my clients need. With extensive event photography experience and technical perfectionism, I’m all about documenting the defining moments of each event through powerful candid imagery while conducting myself with the utmost professionalism in any setting.

  • Unlimited # of Photographs on Assignment
  • Post-Processing included (colour correction, cropping, sharpening)
  • Standard Turnaround of 5 Business Days, Expedited Media/Press Requests available at Additional Cost
  • Public or Password-Protected Online Event Gallery

I’ve had experience photographing: Amateur/Pro Sporting Events, Wine Events, Concerts/Performances, Fashion Shows, Private Functions and Trade Shows, Corporate Events and Professional Conferences.

Standard editing is included for all Event Coverage and Corporate Photography options. Depending on each client’s specific needs (ie. how much post-production is needed for each project), I offer reasonable packages for additional retouching – with my general rate being $50 per hour.

Your hard work and planning for the best activities/entertainment deserves the best in photo coverage.

When securing the best tour activities and quality entertainment for your events, why not make sure that the effect is captured?  Events are full of information, distractions, new faces, and great parties - let our documentation photographers cover the finest moments regardless of location, weather, lighting, or other challenges. As a team of talented photographers, we can cover simultaneous activities in various locations with ease.

These are not just snaps - we deliver images with IMPACT to immortalize these one of a kind memories. Imagine your guest on a horse or hanging from a cable upside down - this is worth capturing!  The best in entertainers/bands will thrill and delight your guests.  This interaction with guests creates prime photo opportunities.  We'll complete the picture with slide-shows, gift prints, web photo galleries and more.
