Corporate Function Team Photos in Brisbane and SEQ

Our expertise extends to group portraits when working to capture corporate event photography in Brisbane. We aim to bring out the essence of you collaborative team. Here are some of the elements we prioritise when creating group photos to reflect your team:

  1. Composition is Key: We work to highlight the group’s connection, aiming for symmetry or sometimes even asymmetry to suit the team.
  1. Height Variation: It is important that we always vary heights for depth, placing taller individuals at the back and shorter ones at the front.
  1. Engage Through Interaction: We will direct you to help capture candid interactions, reflecting genuine working relationships rather than awkward posing.
  1. Framing and Background: It’s not just about the group.  Equally important is a suitable background that complements the team and theme of the event.
  1. Don’t Rush: It’s also important that we give enough time to allow individual expression and genuine smiles and postures rather than rushing to get everyone in position.

Candid Imagery of your Brisbane Business Event

Candid shots are our favourite to capture at any Brisbane Corporate Event.  They portray the genuine emotions and interactions that not only define an event’s essence but show the genuine connection within your staff. Here’s how we work to capture candid photos at your corporate event:

  1. Blend into the Scene: We always dress appropriately to blend in and position ourselves inconspicuously, so we are barely noticeable.
  1. Use a Zoom Lens: Our dual camera system allows us to shoot candids from a distance, staying out of sight, before easily switching to a shorter lens for a wider shot.
  1. Pre-focus for Speed: We prefer to manually focus on anticipated spots allowing us to capture these moments more seamlessly.
  1. Anticipate Gestures and Reactions: An underestimated skill is the familiarity we have with capturing genuine gestures and reactions at our events.  We have a strength in anticipating these that comes from our background in weddings and family photography.
  1. Focus on Emotion: We always seek to capture genuine smiles, glances and appreciation.  This takes time and patience.
