My second year covering IPSE’s meeting of freelancers and judges in anticipation of National Freelancers Day. This year held at The Trampery in Old Street, a quirky shared office space which typifies the Shoreditch scene, linking emerging technology business with freelancer and the like.
I brought my Elinchrom lighting kit so I could get some striking portraits of the candidates. We discovered a nice patterned wall and a funky leather seat. I looked good but was a uncomfortable apparently! Meeting all the candidates was a real treat, so many personalities and all inspiring for any young aspiring entuprener.
the rest of the day in between portraits we grabbed our fun networking shots and interviews. Looking forward to the finals in June!!
Venue: Protein Studios, Shoreditch
The Creativepool 2017 Annual Launch Party is an exclusive gathering of talented individuals and creative agencies, a celebration of the creative industry in the UK. Not just another Annual Launch Party but also with awards too! Love photographing awards, always such a great atmosphere with ecstatic people.
I’d never been to Protein Studios in Shoreditch, London, but was pleasantly surprised at its compact well lit split room design. Photography started when guests arrived, greeted with a glass of prosecco, and canapes. My camera was happy enough and found everybody enjoying a relaxed atmosphere.
The coveted Gold Annual awards were presented on stage to the winners by a host of a familiar ensemble from the local Shoreditch creative scene. What I think made the presentation great at this event was the fact it was 1. A stylish annual 2. Everyone was very high spirited 3. There was a massive projection of each of the winners artwork as they came to collect.
The event covered 27 Annual categories and 9 Award categories, totalling around 100 winners!
As with all my awards photography images were swiftly edited and uploaded for client collection for the next morning PR campaign.
