Event Photography by Mike Nakamura Photography / 425.260.4033
Why should I consider a professional photographer for my event?
You've invested a great deal of time and treasure in your event, documenting it may be very important. A professional will bring the skill, experience, equipment, and staff to insure your event is properly covered.
Promoting the event in future years is easier, submitting for awards requires photography, creating goodwill with clients and colleagues, and showing off your project are all considerations.
Someone on my staff want to cover the event; is that a good idea?
It depends.. sorry for not being more definitive. Being a amateur photographer does not mean they are not capable. Just as if you are filling any other position, review their photographic qualifications, make sure they have suitable equipment back-ups, and insurance. The other consideration is that they will not be able to stay in the presentations they want to see, rather they have to visit every presentation, and probably cannot participate in the "party" aspect of the event.
What is included in your fee?
For the Seattle - Bellevue area, travel to and from the event is included. You receive basic editing and processing of the files, and a download link to share.
