Archive for the ‘Award Banquets’ Category

As a photographer, award banquets are incredibly fun to cover. They’re like a wedding reception, but without the drama! Everyone is excited to be there, and the event planners typically put a considerable amount of effort into planning these events.

Earlier this week, I covered one for Caspers Company, which is one of the largest McDonalds franchise holdersĀ in the company. This particular event was held at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo. Prior to the banquet itself, the attendees arrived early and were given an opportunity view up close and interact with some of the zoo’s more exotic creatures.

We cover a lot of corporate events like this, here in Tampa as well as around the country. It’s what helps keep my skill set sharp in the field of documentary work, and challenges my creative eye to find that perspective that has real commercial value.
