We have worked in gala event photography for the past 10 years and specialise in awards events, charity fundraisers and corporate receptions. We have worked in a variety of prestigious venues such a Grosvenor House Hotel, Hilton Park Lane and The Dorchester as well as private hire venues such as London’s Science Museum and Natural History Museum. We cover the whole of the UK, in fact we can shoot your event wherever it may be so get in touch!

Gala dinners, charity fundraisers and corporate awards ceremonies  are fast-paced events to shoot. They often move extremely quickly and before you know it they’re over in a flash and you’ve been sucked away and overwhelmed by the sheer scale. That is why as an event manager you need an experienced professional photographer with the right kit. Each part of the event has its own distinctive job for the photographer to do and sometimes this will require the expertise of two photographers.

We always work to brief but typically we would cover the following during an awards ceremony.

Event Production: Complete set of shots documenting layout and detail of your production
Registration & Arrivals: Red carpet and set and repeat shots of people being welcomed, meeting with friends enjoying champagne. Group shots.
Stage Shots: All event proceedings, presentations and special guests
Audience: Engagement, fun, networking, table shots
Awards: Trophy shots, award collections on stage and if required a studio set up for more formal set of images. Reaction of winners and audience at their tables.
After party: Shots of any additional entertainment and more images of people enjoying the event
Production: Images edited and key shots including award presentations delivered by the next morning.

Please take a moment to review some of the big events we have covered for clients including Family Law Awards, Everywoman In Tech Awards, Property Marketing Awards, The Brain Game, Taxation Awards, The RADS and World Cup Preview for Marie Curie Cancer Care.


We get hired for this kind of work because we understand all the different aspects of a big corporate gala event. We can deliver all the best images onsite, and have them ready by the morning – hassle free!

Beyond London:

The majority of our clients are London-based, but we often travel further afield for commercial projects. If you’re looking for a commercial photographer in Surrey, Hertfordshire, Berkshire, Essex, Bedfordshire Sussex, Kent or any major UK cities like Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester, please get in touch.
