Event Photography

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I don't have a specific event in mind yet, but I have heard that while not glamorous, event photography can pay. For example today (10/21) there was the Avon Breast Cancer walk in NYC, the NYC Marathon is upcoming. Either for building a portfolio or for contract work it might be good, or just fun to share experience. Discussions could be held regarding copyright / ownership, uniqueness of photos, and how to determine where to get the best shot.

    I have been a volunteer photographer for several organizations for many years, and many are in need of volunteer photographers, most do not advertize their need so it is up to you to reach out to them, easy just go to their web sites and apply and specifically mention 'photographer'.
    I have found this activity is a fun and personally rewarding one and you will certainly update your skills as you go on.
    Typically the non profit org will reward you with credits on their publication(s), event T-shirts, Lunches/Dinners...etc,
    but the best part is that you will leave the event with a feeling that you helped their cause. You will typically work with the Orgs Volunteer Coordinator and they will tell you what they need usually photos of the SPONSORS and VIPs, Political figures and others 'in the news' which are of course GREAT photo ops!

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
