I worked at Vermont Images for 2 months during a busy Christmas period, whereby I was contracted to do Corporate Christmas Party shoots in conjunction with ‘BestPartiesEver’. The size of the events ranged from 300-950 guests, so I was often working under pressure, with tight deadlines. The job required me to shoot both 50 photos per event of people enjoying themselves for the BestPartiesEver marketing team, and also had a ‘photo booth’ set up where I would take group and couples photos against a white background with studio flashes. Customers had the opportunity to purchase the photos throughout the night, which required a high-level of customer service skills in order to take the photos, process payments and print the photos within a small timeframe. I very much enjoyed working at these events, as they were lively, and there was a scope for my own creativity when it came to the photography. Vermont Images’ owner has invited me to help out at other events in the near future, when I am available. He has also highly recommended me to other photographers, and have had contact from a leading sports photographer to work alongside him full time.
