Dallas Morning News’s Endorsed Top 100 Places to Work
The Dallas Morning News and the media marketing company, medium giant, reached out to me to help capture and cover their “Top 100 Places to Work” event. Given the scope and scale of the DFW metroplex, the quality of businesses and employees in attendance was quite a sight to behold!
It was a great evening filled with food, drinks, activities, and plenty of awards to go around. My main goal was to capture the essence and vibe of the event and was asked to largely focus on candid photos. (I naturally had to capture some “grip ‘n grins” as well since people tend to jump into a group pose when they see me and my arsenal of gear!)
The biggest factor of successfully capturing this event was the room itself: The Factory in Deep Ellum in Dallas, which was pretty amazing to work both onstage and backstage given some of the astounding artists I’ve seen perform there (e.g. the prodigious Jacob Collier!). Event spaces come in all shapes, sizes, and colors, and sometimes you’ll run into a big, dark, cavernous room like the one for this event. Looks great in real life, but it can be a challenge to photograph if you’re not prepared! Fortunately, I always pack more gear than necessary, so I can adjust my lighting to any situation thrown my way.
Do you or your company have a big event coming up in 2023? If so, I’d love to help capture all the energy, excitement, and memories that you and your company will make during it! You can reach out to me here.
