Pimco European Investor Day – Coverage
Last week was pretty busy for us, we had one set of corporate headshots that took the whole day and two corporate events. Wednesday was photography coverage for Pimco – European Investor Day held at The Principal London, 1-8 Russell Square, London.
We would usually scout an event venue a few days before an event but this is not always possible. We arrive an hour and a half before the event starts, walk through all the auditoriums/rooms taking test shots to get a sense for camera settings. This also gives us a chance to capture the venue decor before the attendees fill the space which is useful for the organising team as reference.
Covering an event is all about thinking on your feet so very little gear only whats neccessary. For this shoot it was 2 bodies (5D Mkiii & 7D Mkii), 2 lens (Tamron 70-200 f8 & Canon 24-105 f4) and a monopod. I rarely go shallower than f4 for corporate events and use only available light (most clients request no flash).
