Conference and event photography Edinburgh Scotland and the seasons

Hi Everyone

Today I am going to look at Conference and event photography Edinburgh Scotland and the seasons, mainly how the change from winter to summer affects event photographers ie who is affected most and how does it change our focus, if you pardon the pun.  There is a good article by National Geographic on how to photograph in poor weather How to Take Good Photos in Bad Weather (nationalgeographic.com).  Also here is a link to some of my landscape images, with examples of photography from all seasons at the same locations. Colin Wright Photography, Edinburgh and Glasgow corporate and event photographer | Landscape

How the seasons and event photographers in Scotland

1. For sports photographers in Scotland, this can fairly significant.  You would think that outdoor sports would be played in the summer and indoor ones in the winter, but this is not always the case, with football and rugby for example taking place in the winter.  There are also some sports that take place all year round ie swimming, gymnastics, boxing etc.

2. You will probably use flash more in the winter, as you will find yourself indoors a lot, with less room.  This can be significant for wedding photographers in Scotland, who will take entirely different photographs in the winter ie the guests wont be outdoors drinking champagne.  Other genres such as conference photography in Edinburgh and Glasgow for instance are hardly affected by the seasons as the take place indoors.

3. You will work in higher ISOs in the winter with poor limited light and often less time to photograph your subject if it is outdoors.

4. Photographers in some genres may have to diversify out of season.  If they photograph a lot of outdoor landscapes in the summer for instance, they may have to find alternative subjects in the winter.  Likewise the average wedding photographer in Scotland may have to change his or her outlook in the winter, as there are traditionally less weddings at that time of the year.

5. You will have to dress accordingly outdoors and be prepared for weather which can delay your arrival to events.  This may sound obvious but I have heard of photographers being late for photoshoots due to bad weather and its just not acceptable in our profession.  You will also need protective gear for your camera and lenses, plus a good towel or cloth to dry off the snow or rain.  If you are a newspaper photographer in Scotland, you will be required to go out in all types of weather and there will be no excuses.

So I hope this helps.  Until next time.

Kind Regards

Colin
