OPRA, one of our ongoing clients, engage us to take staff portraits for their website when they have new people join their team. All their staff photos are black and white, as they like this distinctive look.
Freestyle Event Photography were the official photographers for the ChoiceKids Christmas Party. ChoiceKids provides a fun, safe and educational environment where children will be cared for and valued. Our approach to the photography was more akin to Street Photography, where we roamed around the area, trying to stay in the background, then picking a decisive moment to photography.
One of our regular clients, Nothpower, had their Christmas party at the Vector Arena in Manukau City. This year, guests came with a masquerade mask, which added wonderfully to the atmosphere. As photographers we always enjoy mixing and mingling with the people, getting them to pose and having a laugh with them. The event had a prize giving and a performance by a magician. The company speakers presented a culture of caring about people and family and it was great to see such a diverse group of people interacting as friends. We felt like we were part of a community.
Freestyle Event Photography photographed the 5th birthday event of Resimac Mortgages, held at the ANZ Events Centre, Auckland Viaduct. Our photographers took photos of the recipients of awards, guests as they entered and, later moved around the room photographing small groups.
Freestyle Event Photography were asked by Multi Media magazine to do a fashion shoot for local fashion designers and retail outlet ‘The Cupboard’, located in Ponsonby, Auckland. It was tricky at first, to get my head around how the shoot, as we had to take photos inside the shop and this did not leave us much scope for arranging clean backdrops or controlling lighting.
When the Auckland office of Mont Blanc, in partnership with Unicef decided to launch a new promotion they asked Freestyle Event Photography to take photos.
We were asked by M2 Magazine to do a studio photo shoot for their Man on the Street series, which appears in their magazine. The editors select three men in business or the community and ask them questions like “What’s your morning routine?” and “What are the top three things on your bucket list?” It’s always interesting to read about how others manage and see their lives.
Freestyle Event Photography took centre stage last night at the Pullman Hotel to photograph the Microsoft Partner Awards Auckland. There were 300 guests, a stage show, live band, and, of course, Microsoft CEO Paul Muckleston handing out prestigious IT Awards. Guests arrived from across New Zealand. Of particular interest was the new Rising Star Award.
This is the third event that Freestyle Event Photography have been involved with for Microsoft.
Last night Freestyle Event Photography were the official photographers for the M2 Man of the Year and M2 Woman of the Year Awards 2016. They were held at the Auckland Hilton’s Bellini Bar.
Without question, a photo booth adds fun to almost any occasion. I know, most of us are not silly people. Right? Wrong! Sure, there is a place for formal photos, and couple and group shots. But at almost any event, whether it’s a conference or a wedding, we find our photo booths are always in big demand. We have a variety of backdrops and props, and the camera is set up with lighting in position ready to roll.
