Event Photography

There’s something special going on here! People want to see it, feel it, taste it, do it for the fun. Be it a county fair, an airplane show, a ballon ride, a wine festival, a rock concert, a rodeo, the list goes on. The events that people go to, they go to be entertained and have a good time. It’s something different going on that doesn’t happen in their daily lives – and they want to experience it.

In every event that I photograph, the best photos come from the spontaneous expressions of enjoyment on peoples’ faces. It’s unposed, it’s just their reactions. Most times in large crowds, it’s hard to get in the right position to get the best photo. I pursue it to get what I’m after. There is always so much going on at the same time, and there’s great photos everywhere that change from moment to moment.

It’s also the colors, the sunlight at different times, and the lens on the camera. It comes down to the experience of photographing events, in making the right choices to get the best photograph. Each photograph tells a different story of the event, which gives viewers time to look at details and people. It’s like being there!
