Event Photography

Philip Marcel / Event Photography / / 0 Comments

You have one opportunity to capture your event before it is gone forever. This is why choosing the right event photographer and ensuring they are well prepared is key. I’ve had the opportunity to shoot special events throughout my career, and I have enjoyed every second of it. I am an in-demand freelance photographer and cinematographer who specializes in creating beautiful imagery. I continue to work as an event photographer for local and national clientele, and it has been a mission of mine to provide high quality images to private client base.

I have been able to develop great relationships with my clients, and this has given me the opportunity to communicate with them in a manner that enables me to understand their needs and wants. And they know what to expect from me.

Event photography is about telling a story of the event to someone who wasn’t there, without using words. I am there to capture life as it unfolds, and it is crucial for me to take anticipation and advantage of every single moment considering that there are no second chances.

My approach to any event that I am hired to photograph is to first, listen to my client. This is essential because I can therefore get a sense of what their event is all about; what’s important to them and what kind of images they’re looking for at the end of the day.

Each event is unique. I’ve had the honor to photograph events in Gainesville such as The Hippodrome opening shows, weddings, graduation photos of Miss Clearwater and Miss Gainesville, the Miss Gainesville Pageant and more. I’m delighted that I am able to apply my photography skills and ultimately making my client content and satisfied with my results.

My mission and purpose is to deliver lasting memories with passion and enthusiasm, I want my clients to feel confident that their needs will be met, and all they have do is be themselves, since I’ll be capturing every emotion and detail to makes these moments unforgettable.

When you hire me for an event you get the benefit of years of experience, professional skills and someone that knows how important your event is to you.

This past Saturday, February 24th 2018, I had the pleasure of documenting the Miss Gainesville Scholarship Pageant. Titles were awarded for Miss Gainesville, Miss Lake City, Miss Gainesville Outstanding Teen and Miss Lake City Outstanding Teen.  This was my 3rd year shooting it and I was grateful to once again be chosen. Here are some of my favorite shots from the evening.

Opening Night at the Hippodrome: “The Elephant Man”

Poster for Elephant Man at the Hippodrome Theatre

It’s always a blast to photograph the VIP opening night of Hippodrome plays.The opening night of The Elephant Man on April 15th was certainly no exception.

The play, based on a true story, was very well done and exceeded my expectations. Despite the heaviness of the situation, it still managed to have good-natured humor in it. It really made me appreciate the work the actors put into the show.

The cast photos, which have a few traditions, are one of my favorite parts of the night. The cast gets silly and we take tons of fun pictures. That helps the event goers have fun with the pictures as well. Everyone loosens up and has a great time.

Opening Night at the Hippodrome

The Hippodrome’s opening night of Women in Jeopardy shoot allowed me to enjoy food, fun and art – all in a day’s work. I’m able to interact with and capture event-goers at the pre- and post-show receptions. Square 1 Burgers catered the food, which included amazing Kobe beef sliders and wings that fell off the bone.

The crowd was electric, as I did get a chance to see the play as well. The post-show is always kicked up a notch, as the actors come out to have great food and mingle with the VIPs. Because I’ve been going on my third season, we’ve developed some fun traditions that center on the cast photos. We like to goof off and really have fun with it. For more details, you’ll have to come to a show.

I was honored to be able to shoot the recent BANCF (Builders Association of North Central Florida) Installation Banquet). During the annual banquet BANCF installs its officers for the coming year.

The event was held Dec. 11 at the UF Hilton. There was a great crowd on hand as the new leadership was sworn in and BANCF’s 60th anniversary was celebrated.

Brandon Tickham, of D.E. Scorpio Corp., was elected 2016 BANCF president. He is pictured here with his two children.
