Since the commercialisation of the DSLRs (Digital Single-lens reflex camera), the full form of the abbreviation most people do not even know of, photography has become a house-hold term. Everyone who is anyone owning a DSLR automatically entitles themselves as “Photographers”! Take a few pictures with their gadgets, make a social media page, upload these pictures on to it and voila! People are hiring these amateurs to cover their events, compromising on quality photography and what the word “photography” actually stands for, and just loving the very basic, crisp picture quality they get in exchange for some money on these tenderfoot’s demands.

During this process people forget how professional photography can make a moment worth a million pounds, so that they do not just like the sharpness of the image, but also love the quality and feel of the moment which is captured! Getting a professional to do photography for you makes a huge difference as compared to that from a person who just hangs his camera over his neck! Amidst of all this, people have forgotten the difference between pictures taken by an actual professional photographer and it only occurs to them when a picture of them taken by an amateur is kept side by side in comparison with one which is taken by a professional. The difference is not hard to see when compared. That is the point where you realise this and start appreciating the pros!

For professional photographers, one of the very important aspects of photography, portrait photography, in particular, is the interaction with their subjects. When they reach out to their subject during a photography session, the communication makes them comfortable with each other, and the awkwardness some people might have towards posing for a picture turns into a casual talk through.

This is the difference with Open Photo Booths, with hire hire your are sent a professional photographer who will capture amazing pictures at your event, instead of awkward self captured rubbish, with people looking in different directions, not knowing where the the camera is or when the picture will be taken…

In return for this human communication, the photographer is enabled to achieve great results out of his subject. Another important fact photographers swear by is to border the perfect frame to capture the subject through.  Focusing on what the subject is thinking at the moment or manipulating their thoughts through conversation to achieve the perfect expression required by the photographer is something the professionals have to study for to bring out on the subject. That is basically the requirement from the subject which becomes a good photographer’s job during the session. This difference can be seen when compared to a picture of the same subject taken by an amateur, neither does it give that feel, nor does it have that appeal which is required, with the photographer either mumbling some non-sensical words, not giving any suggestions or instructions to the subject on how to pose for the picture or maybe not saying anything at all! This results in loss of expression with the pictures turning out to be as boring as they can be! It is a professional photographer’s worst nightmare!

The whole point of this was to make you realise what we miss in a hurry to save some dollars by hiring amateurs who probably have no sense of what a photographer’s job actually represents!

Choose wisely and happy posing!

It has been a rather tiringly busy week for the very driven and directed photographers of The Photo Team! Who says covering two major events in a single night is a piece of cake? Well, done with and forgotten, The Photo Team was all hands and eyes on all the festivities which went around at the Global RLI Awards at the Natural History Museum, while tactically juggling covering the BCSC Purple Apple Marketing Awards at The Brewery in the same city, London.

It was indeed a challenge gladly embraced by the team and very professionally handled by the management. A big shout-out to MK Illuminations who were the sponsor for both the successful events. Covering two big events while ensuring the best quality and professional individual concentration given to both the events, meeting beautiful new people, developing new relations, engaging conversations and capturing self-explanatory memories from the event is all what The Photo Team is about. It’s is not only about what the experience an event administers in you, it is more about what you are able and willing to deliver to the event from your edge making sure all the boundaries are intact and followed upon. Hence, a promising harvest is provided by The Photo Team, which is a stipulation of our “always and forever!”

“RLI”, short for “Retail and Leisure International” is the only existing global retail and leisure magazine which has been representing both the retail and leisure sectors worldwide. It is a cosmopolitan which offers a variety of well analyzed and expertly written articles on a wide range of topics which includes comprehensive study and close-ups on the market’s pre-eminent operators.

The RLI hosted what is the industry’s most talked about event of the year, The RLI Awards 2016! In the midst of the glitz and glamour, outstanding management, anticipated celebrations were the recognition of the most imaginative and innovative conceptual creations by a number of retail and leisure-related companies. The event resulted in a promising outcome of the memories which were perfectly captured by The Photo Team.

Beautiful people in glamorous dresses with award trophies bigger in size than themselves! Glitzy décor which was enjoyed by everyone and created an ambiance only to be fancied by the very alive by heart. A very entertaining twist to the awards was the welcoming appearance by a Marilyn Monroe doppelganger, blowing kisses on her way, which was every bit amusing and delightful! The professional photo booth set up by The Photo Team went viral at the event, and while the guests enjoyed it’s every part, some winner posed with their flashy victory trophies while others had the time of their moment grabbing all possibilities of happiness around them.

  

The second event was a more corporate one, the BCSC Purple Apple Marketing Awards at The Brewery, London. These awards are a commendation of the most prosperous and contemporary commerce from across retail premises. These awards were also hosted by MK illuminations to celebrate the most promising in retail property marketing. A-lists like Gordon Ramsey was also a big part of this prestigious event. The organiser’s request for a “Green Screen” was responsibly looked after by The Photo Team management, the purpose of which is to develop a false background to the picture digitally through software which was not a problem for The Photo Team.

The digital photo booth was thoroughly enjoyed by all the guests, however, pensive the event was, it didn’t stop the guests from striking a pose and playing with arranging themselves in a frame for pictures at the open photo booth set up for them by The Photo Team. In fact, Gordon Ramsey strokes his signature stern look just for the picture! The Photo Team is very thankful to him for taking out time to engage in the activity.

  

The dress code was visibly formal with most guests carrying darker tones of grey with a few in striking accent tones to stand out. The guests took out time to specially arrange for the pictures at the professional photo booth to make the click look more interesting. The digital background which was added later on with hues of bright blue and fairy lights giving an illuminating effect.

The events, however, exhilarating and busy they were, were tended to fully and responsibly by The Photo Team who did their best to serve their client by fulfilling their requirements and adding an extra creative flair of their own to make capturing memories a success also by the use of innovative technology with the latest gear.

Rhiannon & Daniel’s Wedding Reception – 3rd May 2016

Rhiannon & Daniel’s Wedding Reception – 3rd May 2016

Weddings! Ah! A harsh reality for some, but for many, dawn of a beautiful and meaningful journey. Indeed, unions are always a treat to witness for some, and for some, to enjoy its offerings, well, technically, the open bar, delicious sweets and savories, free-style dancing, party photo booth and lots of new people to meet and fresh conversations to delight oneself in! For the “mains” of the event, the overall experience of planning the whole affair, going through the hassle of inviting guests and making suitable arrangements so as to provide the guests with the utmost enjoyable experience settles to be extremely tiresome by the end of the day!

However, a wedding, among an array of other events, is such a function where absolutely nothing must go wrong apart from the tiny eleventh-hour avoidable changes. If all goes as planned, the affair turns into a festive celebration! Such an event was Rhiannon & Daniel’s wedding reception!

The nuptials took place on the 3rd of May 2016 at Ashdown Park Hotel and Country Club, one of the finest luxury hotels in Sussex! The event was as colorful as it could have gotten with bridesmaids blooming in the serene teal colored beautiful pleated V-neck dresses elegantly draped along the silhouettes of their bodies, enjoying themselves with huge vivid spectacle frames and various other props provided by the photo team for the wedding photo-booth! Nowadays, people pay utmost importance to the preservation of cherished memories, professional photo-booths are considered to be the in-thing and hero of all major events as digital photo-booths provides an edge over other happening events.

  

The snaps from the party suggest the photo-booth as the star of the event as everyone seemed to approach the nearest photobooth and indulge in some serious snapping with the huge range of props provided by the photo team.  The event was a nice subtle color themed affair with pretty pocket flowers complimenting the suited men and loosely worn hair was all that was caught by the wedding photo booth.

Everybody concluded that it was the best idea to hire a photo booth since it added more life to the already lively ambiance which existed at the wedding. The food, the interactions and their outcomes, the funny masks and props all summed up to make the bride’s and the groom’s day special to every inch with all taken care of.

It is everybody’s wish, and even the dream of some to make their wedding the event of their lives and to save those memories forever in a special and unique way. Digital photo-booths provide the very strand for creating unique, inventive pictures which are enjoyable on its own.

To top it all, if there is a photo team providing a facility such as professional photo-booths, the affair becomes a celebration! It is always wise to engage guests in pleasurable activities like photo-booths and dance floors so it can become a beautiful memory for them and for you of the best day of your life!
