Publicity photo for Korero Purakau. Photo by Ester Siraky Photography

Quality photography can go a long way in the marketing department. Photo quality is vital for spreading the word about your event and memorializing it.

A picture is worth a thousand words – it tells the audience what to expect and is the most engaging form of publicity content. Photos can be used in many different ways, including on your publicity material, in the press, social media and on your website.

You can also have a variety of photos – headshots, rehearsal stills, performance photography, and media shots. Consider creating a portfolio of professional photos to make your event stand out.

Headshots are a great way of showing people who you are, whether that is in a business sense or a personal way, these types of photographs can convey a lot when needed. Convention Headshots are very important for business/company gatherings such as trade shows, these will help potential customers/clients/partners, etc. see who is behind the business they may want to get involved in. It can also help during corporate business days where colleagues can mix and mingle with other branches, helping them decipher who is who and what their standing is within the business. It can get people talking and networking, there are no faceless corporations anymore, people want to feel connected and reassured about what they are getting themselves into.

While a friend with a camera can be a good start, you will often get much better value from an experienced, professional photographer – especially one used to taking photos in the low light of a theatre.
