If you want to know all about "Making Money from Event Photography" then come on our special event photography course.
Our course "Event Photography for Profit" is run by Stuart Morley MD of System Insight in conjunction with Mike Orr, Professional Photographer.
Mike has been doing event photography since 1995 and has photographed a wide range of events. He has also spoken on the subject for Nikon at Nikon Solutions and is a guest speaker at the SWPP Conference.
Stuart Morley's experience comes from running System Insight since 1991, and has also been involved with Event Photography since 2005. Stuart comes from a Sales & Marketing background and has a wide range of systems experience.
He has also spoken on the subject at Nikon Solutions and has put together many Event Photography systems including the one used at the Brit awards after show party where twelve wireless Nikon cameras where used to capture 2,500 images withing 4 hours. Stuart is the owner of the photobus, the Uk's largest Event Photography Vehicle.
The course covers all aspects of event photography and a complete range of equipment from most of the major manufacturers is available for you to use on the day.
Our course is NOT a sales seminar sponsored by one manufacturer with the sole purpose of selling you equipment, but a complete "insight" into making money from Event Photography by a successful Event Photographer for the last ten years.
The course is held at New Place Hotel and Conference Center in Shirrell Heath, Hampshire, which is close to the M3 and M27. Discounts are available to delegates who require accomodations (ask us for details).
The day starts at 9:30am and finishes at 5:00pm, a buffet lunch is provided as well as tea and coffee throughout the day.
The course size is maximum of fifteen delegates to keep the course personal. Mike and Stuart's aim is ensure that every delegate goes away with all they need in order to start making money from their next event.
Delegates are more than welcome to bring their own cameras should they wish to have a go themselves on the day. Mike will be using the latest Nikon photographic products during the day.
A small studio will be set up on the day and full explantion of all the equipment is given. A demonstration of event photography systems from £300 to £3500 will be used.
The course also covers the non-photographic elements of event photography including sales & marketing, finding events and essential non-photographic equipment amongst others.

I have experience in equestrian events but really came away with a lot
from the event photography course. How to maximise the workflow, getting
the image from the camera, enabling the customer to view and purchase
the images quickly, types of event opportunities not just in my field,
using sales techniques to enhance the prospect of a sale, marketing
tips, information on sourcing work and hands on use of the latest in
imaging equipment and thermal printers as well as a live black tie
studio set up.
Of particular note was the fact that the training course was conducted in an informal style that encouraged the participants to interact ask questions and make comments.
A fulfilling and informative day - Well recommended!
