Years of covering launches, conferences and other events have helped me develop the intuition to identify and photograph key moments, and to capture the character of my subjects.

Technically, a key challenge in event photography lies in being able to use lighting and composition to capture not only the action of the speaker, but also the context that supports and defines the action. Another important factor is that the photographer is seldom in control of the environment (indoor/outdoor, size of the venue, position of the speaker, etc), and as such has to be flexible and technically competent enough to make the most of any situation.
