2012 Melaleuca Conference and Gala Ball

I was asked to shoot the 2012 Melaleuca Conference and Gala Ball for a fellow local photographer, Stefan from Photographer at Large. They had several specific requirements in the brief, including ensuring photos were of magazine print quality.

In this post I am going to give you a bit of the background work that goes into a shoot like this so you can see what sort of preparation, care and attention we give in order to ensure that the event photography for your event captures all the things you want to get recorded.

First of all there was the initial client contact including a brief, run sheet for the two events. This was followed up with several emails and phone calls setting out details prices, dates and times etc.

I then drive into the event location, the Brisbane Convention Centre and met with the event organisers. I went to each of the venue rooms, checked lighting, arranged for AV staff to show me on stage lighting, took test shots, made notes on the types of specific photos they wanted to get. I reviewed all the requirements they had and ensure that I knew hat was expected of me including dress standards, how noticeable they wanted me to be etc.

At home before the event I ensure I had all flash and camera batteries charged, remote flash synch batteries charged, all cables, stands and lighting equipment organised and packed.

I arrived at the venue 20 minutes before hey needed me, and was able to take some setup shots with no one around to ensure i had lighting levels and white balance settings correct.

During the first event – a conference – I ensured I shot people in the crowd at the registration desks as well as overall area photos. Then during the conference i had to shoot specific speakers and award presentations. Finally after that I shot some shopping in the product showcase room.

The next night I also arrived early, got a trolley from reception, carted all my gear to the ballroom, set up and then got changed. I then met with the event organisers who told me all the changes of plan, so I shot some more sample photos using ballroom staff as props to check white balance and camera settings.

I was then able to meet all the photo requirements as requested.

The main message here is the boy scout motto “Be Prepared”. We know that things happen, that plans change and we expect and plan for it. We pack a full car load of gear for events just in case we need it. We ensure that we go out of our way to make sure the client gets the result they anticipated and more.

Here are some sample shots from the event. (note: these are all unedited straight out of the camera)

Feel free to book us for your next corporate or community event.

Here are some of the results.

We are now open for commissions – taking shoots of you and your costume in any location or setting you choose.

Drupal Down Under 2012

2012 has really kicked off with a bang for us photography wise with numerous shoots in Melbourne, Adelaide and Brisbane so far.

The second weekend of January there was a geek conference in Melbourne (unnoticed by most of the world). However the Drupal Downunder 2012 conference held in Melbourne is for the powerful CNS software that powers over 1% of the worlds website including this one, Drupal.

I went to the conference as a participant but also as a photographer shooting individuals, speakers and groups of people as they listened, worked, played and collaborated together. It was a great fun time with a rich and diverse group of creative and ingenious people.

Here are some of my favourites from the weekend.

Louden Family Portraits

It is really nice to see a family who get along real well together and look out for each other. The Louden family are one of those families. Each genuinely care for the others and you can see this in the way they interact. One of the little girls got something in her eye and the other had a green ant bite 5 minutes into the shoot. Everybody showed concern and helped them feel better and get back into the spirit of taking photos again.

As a result we had a lot of fun. First we did a staggered shoot under some old gnarled trees and then used another tree to arrange people under and on. Then it was onto synchronised walking and jumping - lots of hilarity there! Finally we did some nice group shots out on the grass with a thundery grey cloudy sky. We finished with some more antics and then packed up.

Here are some of the best ones.

2011 Noosa Summer Charity Ball

2011-11-05 Noosa Ball 017The inaugural charity gala event was held at the Noosa Sheraton Resort  to raise funds for Katie Rose Cottage at Doonan, a hospice dedicated to the whole of the Sunshine Coast for people who require palliative care. Katie Rose Cottage provides free palliative care and accommodation for their guests and relies solely on donations to run the hospice. The goal of the Katie Rose Cottage is to assist their guests in being as aware and pain-free as possible, so that their last days may be spent with dignity and quality while surrounded by their loved ones. The care at Katie Rose Cottage treats the person rather than the disease, focusing on quality rather than length of life; it affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. The hospice is family oriented by including the guest and the family in making decisions. All funds raised from the Noosa Summer Charity Ball, including the ticket sales will go directly to Katie Rose Cottage.

On 5th November 2011 the Noosa Summer Charity Ball hosted a Roaring 20’s Charity Ball at the Sheraton Noosa. In a nod to the Roaring Twenties, Lilly Pond Terrace and the Noosa Ball Room was transformed into a Speakeasy Bar with lounges and plenty of mood lighting. A lavish evening of live entertainment and dancing, raffles, auctions, delicious food and fabulous fun was had by all.

Dreamcoat Photography was there to shoot  as period photographers (though with modern equipment thank goodness) capturing the glamour of the ritzy and debonair set playing gentle people with a beautifully restored (fully working) Model T Ford. We printed the photos on the night for everybody. 50% of our proceeds were donated to the Katie Rose Cottage charity as well.

Digital Image Prices
