SA Renal Conference
I shoot many events and a few conferences every year. Conference photography and event photography make up a large part of my repertoire. I service a few event organisers who cater for many different fields industries, from medical to travel to petroleum to lifestyle and retail.
These clients use various venues around Cape Town with the largest being the CTICC, Cape Town Convention Centre on the Foreshore of Cape Town. The newest and next biggest is the CCCC, the Century City Convention Centre. This is where the SA Renal organisation chose to hold their conference. The venue can be configured in various different ways and the square outside the centre and next to the hotel was tented for the gala dinner.
Turners Conferences was the organiser for the event. They specialise in larger conferences and congresses and handle everything from the hotel bookings of the delegates to the details of the actual meetings and even the arranging of the entertainment, food and service providers for the social events.
It is important that the event organisers hire the right subcontractors as this has a direct effect on their image. I am privileged to be associated with some of these companies and flattered that I keep being hired to cover the conference photography. This is a great compliment to me and I trust that I am reflecting their professionalism to their client and helping to build the relationships.
Below are a few images from the event. The first day was a full day of plenary discussion followed by a cocktail event in the main hall. The following evening was the gala dinner. I was commissioned to cover all the details and shoot the revelry and get some fun photos of the guests enjoying their time as well as the entertainment.
All images captured with Canon equipment.
I edit on an iMac with the Adobe CC Lightroom and PS suite.
