Kennedys Law Event Photography

Last week I photographed a great evening event at Kennedys which is a international law firm in Bank. The Friday presentations took place on the ninth floor which had a impressive view overlooking the city of London. The evening started off with networking between the guests and then followed by interesting discussions by the five speakers and then ended with a panel discussions.

If you have a event at Kennedys and you need a event photographer then you can contact me via my contact form for further information. 

You can view a few images from the evening here –

Olympia London Event photography

I was commissioned to photograph at Olympia London to create free imagery for a client’s workshop that was being held at the International Jewellery London. The light and the space throughout the Olympia space is amazing so it a great space to take pictures. Anyway you can view a few of the events photographs that I took during the event and a few pictures taken throughout the rest of the showroom down below. Also you can view my other event photography work here or if you need to book me to photograph your stand/event at Olympia then you can email me here.

Event photography at Claridges

I was browsing through my site over the weekend and I realised I haven’t blogged for…..six months! I have never been a great blogger but I am very lucky that I shoot in a lot interesting venues across London so its seems a shame that I don’t show a few pictures of what I’ve been up to through the first half of 2017. From now on, I will try to turn over a new leaf and blog once a week so that you can keep in touch with some of the incredible places I’ve been working in….

At the beginning of March I was commissioned to photograph an event at Claridges which is an exclusive hotel, well known for its afternoon tea. It is also a great setting for an evening event though and the atmosphere in the function rooms is perfect for smart business events!

Here are a few images from the evening….

All the images shot on Nikon D4 plus 24-70mm/105mm lens

Winter Event photography

I have lost track on the amount of events that I have photographed recently so I thought I should do a round up over the last few months and then do more individual blogs over the quieter months of winter…. The majority of my events have been in London with a few of the venues including the following… The Hop Exchange, The Royal Exchange and smaller opening nights for PR companies. All of my clients have requested for natural and (mostly) unposed event photography. I have photographed everything from small PR events to conferences and more recently winter socials.

Here are a handful of shots from the last 12ish weeks…if you have a event that you need covering then you can email here

Gherkin Building event photography

During a busy July I was commissioned to photograph a dinner at the Gherkin building which is located in financial district, the City of London. The shoot of the dinner took place at one the top floors of the skyscraper and I have never been a huge fan of heights so working so high up made me go a bit crossed eye. Thankfully the clients didn’t notice me going a bit green when I had to take pictures next to the windows! Anyway the incredible view of London and the light was stunning within the room so it a was great commission to take on.

Here is my Google Business Review from my client:

“I hired James on behalf of a client for a business event. He took absolutely stunning photos that captured the event perfectly and we are thrilled. James was also highly professional, timely and organized, which was definitely a big plus seeing we were communicating overseas. Without a doubt, I would use James for any events/photo opps in London again. Thank you!”

And as always here are few shots from the event and you can contact me via contact form here

Jumeirah Carlton Tower event photography

This year has seen a huge spike in event shoots I am commissioned to cover, I love shooting a few events each week mainly because it gets me through the door to interesting places that I wouldn’t dream of going to like the Jumeirah Carlton Tower in Knightbridge and at the same time it is alway nice to photograph people enjoying themselves during a private drink reception! The event team at the Jumeirah hotel invited me along to photograph their Wimbledon tennis event and the brief was to capture a mixture of group shots and people mingling having a nice time. There were amazing canapes for the guests to enjoy, all made from the catering team in the hotel and there was also a great performance from the Australian opera singer, Kiandra Howarth, with a few well known tennis players including Pat Cash and Henri Le Conte making their appearance! My knowledge of tennis is limited at best so it was great to learn a little bit more about the history of tennis especially about the career of the number one tennis player, Margaret Court.

Anyway that is enough from me rambling on, as always here a few shots from the evening and if you need a photographer to shoot your event then you can send me a email to find out more –

21st Birthday Party photographer

As I said before every week is very different for me which keeps me on my toes and makes running my photography business so fun.

So last week I was commissioned to photograph a two conference in London and then at the weekend I photographed a joint 21st birthday party in the (very) deep countryside of Norfolk. Apart from this birthday shoot making me feel a little bit old (only a little bit!) it was great fun to photograph the young crowd letting their hair down during the drink reception and then after a few glasses of wine making some brilliant dance moves on the dance floor! Oh to be young and carefree again!

Before I forget during the drink reception there was some brilliant jazz from The Jazzcats, if you need some great jazz music for your future event do give me them a call!

Here are a few favourites from the evening and if you need a photographer to cover your event feel free to send me a email.

RBS Conference photography on Bishopgate

My feet barely touched the ground during June, it was a busy month of shooting events and conferences throughout London. One of the conferences that I photographed was organised by Pitch Perfect Club, the event was at the RBS building on Bishopsgate and throughout the day there were a great range of different speakers and in the quieter moments I had to grab a few portraits of the speakers as well. So it was a fun filled day and I learnt a thing or two more about branding!

As times goes on I am shooting more and more conferences throughout the capital so if you need a conference photographer then do feel free to send me a email to check if I am available to cover your conference.

As always here are a handful of favourite images from the day.
