Briefing an event photographer – free download

I recently wrote a short blog on important points to remember when briefing an event photographer. It was received with such interest that I thought it worth expanding the information and making it available to all in a free downloadable document to keep for future reference. So if you are an experienced event organiser, new to the industry or have a junior you need to delegate to organise your event photographer this document could be of interest.

Your event photographer will have his own skills to add to the mix, are you utilising that potential? This 22 page document covers all areas of event photography briefing.
