Fall is upon us, and the holidays are fast approaching. For my corporate clients, that means holiday parties. Many of the same companies that hire me to make portraits of their executives and staff, bring me in again during the holiday season to photograph their big annual party.
Holiday parties are a treat to photograph, because the venue is usually very nice and everyone is in a good mood. There are also challenges, since I usually cannot control the environment or lighting, and it can be difficult to corral dozens or even hundreds of people. All in all, I enjoy it. And my clients find photography to be a valuable investment, because the photos can make a good giveaway to employees, and can be a PR or recruiting tool to help convey the corporate culture of the firm.
I look forward to this season’s batch of holiday parties.
