Fotoforce has photographed gala balls and awards nights for the Gold Coast Titans, Gala Events and Annual conferences for the Small Business Association of Australia.

We photograph the dynamic energy and ambience of various regular networking events and have just photographed 2 multi day conferences for Juice Plus Australia and the annual Youth Health Conference at The Marriott Hotel.
Here are 6 Must-Have Considerations & Handy Hints to include in photography for your next Gold Coast Special Event
1) Timing is Key
Make sure you liaise with your photographer thoroughly. We will need an itemised running sheet of the event so that we know what’s happening and when, so that we can make sure we are in the right place at the right time to record all the special moments.
2) Dolly up the Décor
We will take wonderful overviews of the look of the occasion and venue with all the close-up décor details to make sure the uniqueness of your event is on show in your photographs for all to see.
3) ID your VIP’s
Your photographer will also need a list of your VIP’s and any special combinations of people that you would like to see together. It’s then important to visually point out all the VIP’s to your photographer so that they can recognise them & make sure they don’t miss anyone.
4) Brand Your Image Spots
A good idea is to have a ‘photo wall’ to take social media photos .. a spot that features your business logo or the name of your prestigious event .. a decorated spot that will feature strongly in your guests facebook and Instagram posts.
5) Consider your Socials
Another good idea is to run an Instagram competition for your guests .. give them the hashtag of your event #ExtraSpecialNight .. or whatever your event name might be and offer a prize for the most innovative post. You can provide a basket of props and products near the photo wall for your guests to dip into to create their imagery which will really get your event out there in social media world.
6) Remember Traditional Media
It can also be easy to feature your event in the local media or appropriate magazines by supplying a fast turnaround selection of social images of your guests in press release size.. most publications will want the guests names and suburbs accompanying your images so talk to your photographer about this and have a press release blurb ready to go at the completion of your event .
So that’s it : Think Timing, Décor, VIP’s, Brand Creativity, Social Media and a traditional Press Release for your amazing Corporate Event photography to ensure it’s impact lasts for much longer than one night whilst showcasing your personal and business branding image to the max !
