the pressmen as digital/fake/spoof/comic paparazzi create memories

we just did a talk to our local BNI group ( which is a business networking group based in east london. We talked about how we have linked entertainment to photography to rapport to create memories for our clients. Photography and entertainment are just tools to create memories after the event and to act as a catalyst to a fun filled atmosphere on the night.

Wedding Paparazzi

If you are a moderm adventurous couple then the Pressmen are for you. It is a special day and photography is an important consideration. There are many good photographers out there. How do you choose. At the pressmen we are adding certain extra benefits. Our style is informal and we fit right into the whole ambience. we add something to the beginning atmosphere especially for guests who don't know each other. We create a rapport with guests that enables us as the day goes by to get really impressive informal shots of your guests enjoying your special day. this enables us to create a well thought out photojournalistic record of your event. It gives you a chance to see some of the things you missed on the day.

I think it is important for wedding couples to think about what they want from their photographs. And choose the photographer who fits.

Pressmen as digital comic Paparazzi consider photographic light

When working as fake,digital,comic or spoof paparazzi at the beginning of events all the interaction happens at a frantic pace. people are coming into the event and like all mix and mingle entertainment one of the goals is to help create an impact and be a catalyst towards a fun and open atmosphere.
At the same time the pressmen are trying to catch this sense of fun in candid photographs of the guests. there are special moments when they smile laugh or interct which are perfect moments for photography.
This is all happenning in a very ad hoc manner. Yet there is a space that is the entrance where the client has said you must work.
It is a space that usually has a whole series of mixed lighting from ambient through to moving coloured spots. It is essential before the job starts to do test photos to find the best place to shoot and the best angles and the best direction. Then there is a chance to interact with the guests and choose ones direction to maximise not only the mix and mingle interaction but also maximise the available light.
