Being an event photographer is always challenging — I have to deal with the special lighting effects and conditions, the huge groups of people, the wild and uncontrollable children and even the G4 security guards (only for this time) all at the same time! It’s hard, yet I like the job best.
Unlike the usual wedding events, I have got absolutely NO chance to communicate with my “shooting tagets” beforehand. Not privileged to be the official photographer of the event WITH the priority pass!!! Being my “targets”, which means the celebrities of the town, you can imagine how busy they are. They are never alone but surrounded by different politicians, guests, friends and of course, the G4s. Here at this time, my past experiences helps a lot as I need to capture the special moments without jamming into their activities. I do need to control my gears wisely as well.
A REAL-LIFE experience in photojournalism — challenging, but nice and fun!
