CONFERENCES, FUNCTIONS, EVENTS
Let’s just accept that we have the photographic experience, the know-how and all that usual blah, blah, blah that goes on with sales pitches. Our expertise is a given and what you’d expect. So why us? What’s the big deal? What sets Warren Williams Photography uniquely and fundamentally apart? Well, Warren sets it apart (blow the proverbial trumpets). He’s a one-man photographic freak of nature. But more importantly, he doesn’t try and run the show. It’s your show, so you run it. But! When you ask him for a shot, the chances are he’s already taken it. He watches, listens, observes, then acts. Sometimes he talks. Sometimes he doesn’t. But when he does talk, people respond brilliantly because he has a very distinct knack of making them forget about the camera and photographs and posing and all those terribly, terribly intimidating things that go with having photographs taken. In fact, 100 bucks says that your shyest, most introverted, ‘I really hate having my photograph taken’ delegate will be very politely asking him for photos at some stage of the proceedings. This is not play-play, make-believe, ‘let’s pick up some business’ stuff – this is fact. It’s what he does! It’s why you pay him! It’s why some of his clients and their clients hug him (really, they do, he’ll write a book about it one day apparently). His greatest gift is taking photos where you can hear the people laughing, where you can feel the passion as they present, where you can sense the energy on the dance floor and on the team build. Its real, tangible work that connects. He doesn’t simply shoot conferences. He shoots experiences. And experiences are not about pie charts, stats, objectives and profit margins. They’re about people. Your people. The people who represent your brand, company and image. Makes sense huh?
Now, let’s show you a very small smattering of our corporate work, then shoot down to the bottom of this page to find out how we actually photograph your event.
HOW WE WORK
We’ve got an LLB, BSocSci, PhD in pleasing CEOs, COOs, CFOs, Brand Managers, Sales Managers, reps, international guest speakers and other very, very important VIPs. Big, medium, small, it doesn’t matter, we understand that any corporate shindig can be a high-pressure environment. We get that you’ve worked darned hard planning and executing your conference. We’re also scarily aware that come the end of your event you’re going to want photographs that make your delegates go ‘ooooh’ and ‘aaaaah’ and ‘remember that moment?’ So we arrive early and stay late, capturing everything from your décor, food, entertainment, speeches and presentations to workshops, displays, and coffee breaks. We know when to step up to the plate and interact with delegates and we know when to hang back, be discrete and simply get the shots. Nobody, and we mean absolutely nobody does it like we do. When it comes to handling big personalities, difficult personalities, shy personalities, A-type personalities, any personalities in fact, we’re without peer. And that, simply put, is the biggest secret to capturing the sheer, raw, real essence of any corporate function. And as an added bonus, we travel to wherever, whenever so that you always get complete synergy across your final material. So in a nutshell, we aren’t just another option, we’re your only option. Yup, that’s one heck of a statement. We’ll stick to it. And if you think were lying through our teeth to pull your business (and doing quite a good job of it up until now), why not have a quiet chat to our clients – that should be fun.
