Conference Photography & Video

Conference Photography & Video

It was great to be asked to cover this years ENYGF conference and it was always going to be a hectic schedule. They chose the Victoria Warehouse as the venue for the 2017 conference which is an awesome location. After research they chose us to cover the conference photography & video. The venue has a huge expanse and is often used for large concerts, wedding and other similar events. The ENYGF had asked us to provide photo and video coverage to showcase their conference and promote future events. Considering the size of the venue and also the challenges of extreme low light as well as colour casting this wasn’t such an easy task. The venue is quite notorious for its large capacity but also for its many rooms on different levels and so it was important we had planned to capture everything and really do the event justice by producing a great series of images.

A Visit to the Science Museum

One of the trips organised by the ENYGF was to the Museum of Science & Industry This was such a cool place and allowed all the attendees a little bit of R & R after a pretty hectic schedule. One of Manchesters ‘must see’ places the venue have a number of tours and also host parties where you can explore the surroundings take lots of pictures. As we were covering the conference photography & video aspect it was important we made it to these events. As this was organised on an evening it was a real talking point for the attendees the following day and was definable one of the highlights.

Final delivery and sign off

Over the few days that we filmed at the ENYGF as you can imagine we had a huge archive of images and video. We delivered this by way of the cloud and gave them access to all the footage requested as well as cut this snappy little trailer for them to us to promote future events. With over 1000 images we also made these available across a number of platforms as well as having some for social media during the event itself. The ENYGF were a great team to work with and really put on a spectacular final show which everyone enjoyed.

Our experience & knowledge really makes a difference

We understand how many choices our clients have and thats why we offer a range of choices seldom seen in mainstream photography. We want to wow you with ideas, push the boundaries of what can be achieved when we undertake your project. Offer a range of optional products that stand out as art rather than just ‘a nice picture’. Many of the clients we work with have little or no knowledge of how to model/pose. We always put them at ease. Successfully posing for photographs is a process of experimentation and practice, with the right help anyone can do it.

A highly competitive pricing structure

We don’t profess to be the cheapest, but I don’t think as a discerning client you want ‘cheap’. We do have however provide the best quality images at our price point. Operating from a small studio in north Manchester we keep our costs low and this allows us to offer you a great deal. Photography services Manchester have invested in some of the best kit available for portrait or studio work and this is a very exciting time for us. Our success has allowed us to develop our portfolio into other types of photography including architecture, infant and baby, maternity, sports and many other fields. If you have an event or celebration planned why not give us a call to discuss how we can preserve your day.

Its not just about the camera

Its worth noting that we dont just show up and shoot a ton of images. If it were that easy everybody would be able to create a good business for themselves. We actively share ideas with our clients, its important we can understand what makes you tick. Everybody has a different view of the kind of images they would like. Our aim is to embrace your concept and offer new and exciting ways of creating the final vision. Of course a large part of this is final post production and we are like many high end studios in that respect. We use industry standard software for post production to ‘paint’ the final images.

Photoshop artistry

Many production houses use Adobe photoshop, its become the industry standard. It is such a complex and powerful piece of software many photographers fail to use it to its full potential. Here at Cedar House we have many years experience using complex processes within photoshop to develop the kind of images you want. Indeed we have freelance photographers that rely on our editing experience to correct and edit their images. Below is an example of a highly stylised shoot we did where the client requested a specific style reminiscent of the ‘sin city’ look.
