Photography of artistic events

photo reportage · photos of conferences, meetings, festivals, concerts, exhibitions, vernissages


  I do invite you to take advantage of my offer for making photographic materials for promoting planned undertakings and documenting artistic events such as festivals, concerts, meetings, exhibitions, vernissages, presentations, galas, performances, conferences.

Each event is worth remembering for a longer time, to be passed on to others, to ensure the possibility of returning to a given event at any time, to be passed on to the next generations in the form of an archive. Today photography is one of those media that allows for immediate registration, forwarding and archiving with virtually no loss of quality, creating great documentation. In addition to these information functions, photography is a great promotional material and a souvenir for participants and guests of the events.

When choosing a photographer for a photojournalistic assignment, his or her experience is crucial and can best be seen in his or her portfolio. Very important is his/her style and ability to cope with different circumstances of lighting, geometry of the space where the event takes place or dynamics of the scene (movement). These are all key to conveying the natural character and atmosphere of the event. What is important is the photographer's style of operation - whether he or she can behave subtly and quietly so as not to absorb the attention of the participants and not to disturb the event for the spectators (also by loud operation of photographic equipment). Does he/she get acquainted in advance with the planned course of events and is prepared in advance to effectively record the various stages so that no key scene is missed. If possible, he meets the main characters of the event beforehand, introducing himself, warning them about the way he intends to act while photographing and makes sure that his actions will not disturb anyone. All of this also serves to build the right relationship with the main participants in the meeting.

It is important for the photographer to prepare for the recording of the photographic material in such a way as to meet all the expectations of the client - he has to know where to focus in order to expose all the key elements in the picture. The photographer's creativity is crucial here - showing the scenes in an attractive and original way, without repeating the usual paths and schemes, interesting framing, effective use of existing light and, if necessary, arranging additional light, if it is acceptable in a given case and complements the existing light.

Photographs of recorded photojournalism should emphasize the subject of the event, depict the reactions and emotions of participants. People who appear in the photos should be photographed in a favorable way, showing their desired image - photos with unfavorable lighting of the face, closed eyes or momentary grimace on the face, should be definitely rejected, as well as blurry or moved pictures.
