Corporate and event photographers Glasgow, Edinburgh Scotland and the seasons

Hi Everyone

Today we are going to look a the effect of the four seasons on professional corporate and event photographers in Edinburgh, Glasgow and throughout Scotland.  As a professional corporate and conference photographer working in Edinburgh and Glasgow, I am often asked what I do when the conference season is quiet and the answer if that I am usually taking an entirely different type of photograph, but at the same time there are similarities and each genre of photography has skills relevant to it that can be applied to other photoshoots.  Often conference photography can be quieter in the summer months, as these type of events are avoided when people take their vacations.  So this summer I have been involved in wedding photography around Scotland, from Perth, Glasgow and very recently at the Lodge on Loch Lomond last month.  Now the main difference between the seasons is that I spend a lot of time shooting outdoors, particularly for weddings, however, we all know that theory can fall flat due to the Scottish weather.  The life of a wedding photographer in Scotland can be similar to a conference photographer in Edinburgh, you are photographing an event, with certain key moments at set times throughout the day.  People often ask why I enjoy photographing the speeches at weddings and I reply that it is just like the speakers at a conference.  Also weddings like other events, will present you with opportunities to photograph candid moments and to capture the emotion in the faces of the participants.

Another difference in the seasons is the type of sport you photograph, football and rugby are winter sports and athletics, apart from the indoor track season, tends to take place in the spring and summer, whilst indoor sports can take place all year round, although a lot of them will take place in the autumn or winter.  I used to be a newspaper photographer in Edinburgh and the Lothians and this was obviously all year round but the jobs tended to be very seasonal, ie the gala days were in spring, football and rugby in the winter and then you had seasonal celebrations, such as Easter and Christmas.  As some of you will know, I am also a landscape and infrared photographer in Scotland and although you can photograph infrared all year round, you need daylight and as much sun as possible, so the summer and spring are best, landscape can be achieved all year round but the days are shorter.

So, I could go on but the main aspect of this article is to emphasise that you can take photographs all year round and it can provide you with great opportunities to learn new skills and apply all you have learned to different genres of photography.  So no excuses get out there and snap away.

Until next time.

Kind Regards
