The image above was taken in the Raleigh area; however, I have covered a corporate golf outing in Pinehurst.
Corporate event photography is a core part of my/our business (David & Brenda). Corporate golf outings like the one above is just one of the many types of corporate events that I cover. I don't do any consumer event photography and love being exclusive to the corporate event side of photography which my/our corporate event clients appreciate.
You'll notice that I am lying on the ground to get the two shots that follow. I will lay on the floor, on the ground, stand on something, use a monopod, move around, go left, go right or whatever it takes to get the shot that I am after which in the end provides much better final images. It's a style that I have developed to well: It may surprise you to know that clients don't say I'm in the way but often comment that I am everywhere. I'm a photojournalistic ninja when it comes to covering a corporate event.
Not all photographers will get the same results from the same event. A true professional will bring his or her unique style to the event. That's why you have to do your homework on the photographer you are considering for your corporate event. In my case, I have lots of corporate event references and will provide contact details upon request.
In closing, weddings are a different type of event with a different style. Everyone knows the STAR (the-Bride) and the supporting minor star (the-Groom). There are several things about weddings that are very predictable. That's not to say a wedding photographer cannot do a corporate event nor does it mean weddings are easy to shoot, but at the end of the day, what does the photographer shoot the most of Weddings or Corporate Events? I'm not trying to say anything bad about wedding photographers. It's just that when you are looking for a corporate event photographer, do you really want a photographer that shoots mostly weddings? In my cases, I am exclusively (100%) corporate events and love shooting them. I am truly passionate about them like a friend of mine that's truly passionate about wedding photography.
