Bradford Film School had the chance to host a day for the Bradford Film Summit. People from all around the world were here for this 3 day event. As a student of the Film School i had the opportunity to photograph on the Final day. 100 guests were expected however only 30 or so turned up, also events over ran leaving the schedule rushed.

Unfortunately due to missed locations i did not manage to get many ‘action/location’ shots of the guests. I did have the opportunity to photograph indoors during speeches in the Henry Mitchell Hall and i also got the opportunity to photograph the Studio Photo Booth.

I didn’t take as many images as i had liked, however i felt confident using my flash on location and using the camera within the studio.

If an opportunity like this arises again i would like to get myself further involved and make sure i know all the details and locations of the guest before going to photograph

How is this opportunity related to my photography career?

– gained experience from using my flash gun on location
– photographing subjects under strict time limits
– engaging with strangers and directing how to photograph them
– working quickly and on the spot – quick/smart thinking
– proactive shoot
-using capture one
-Organisation skills – keeping on track of the days agenda an also keeping track of who you are photographing
