There are a lot of venues for events in London. Photographing the conference, seminar or networking event gives privileged access to some interesting buildings.
While I spend most of time photographing the VIPs and attendees, a few good shots of the hall and the building are always welcomed. This is my excuse to go exploring – I find my way onto the balcony or mezzanine, sneak down interesting, dark corridors or up the back stairs. With a brace of cameras around my neck, I can always claim I’ve got lost!
Below, I’ve included a few of the venues where I’ve worked, where you actually get a sense of the space.
Most events venues in London look after photographers well, including providing some food and drink, staff in London’s events venues seem to see photographers as being on their side – just doing their jobs. Of course, if I’ve had a sandwich and a bottle of beer I’m more likely to photograph their venue at it’s best!
