Conference Photography – BAPM Conference & AGM 2017
So what do you do if you are photographing a conference at a smallish venue in the city centre, it’s pouring with rain outside and the organisers would like a group shot of all 80 delegates? Well if you have a photogenic staircase like the one at The Studio in Birmingham City Centre the answer is obvious (to me anyway!).
It may have been obvious but it was still far from straightforward to squeeze everyone onto two levels, not drop my camera, light everyone properly and finally get them all looking up, eyes open and smiling!
The challenge arose while recently photographing the BAPM (The British Association of Perinatal Medicine) Annual Conference and AGM in Birmingham. As well as taking the group picture, I was also on hand to capture the key speakers, delegates, networking and break out sessions during the two day event.
