One of the services that we offer at events is show photography. Many events feature a photographer to capture the key highlights and events, but one of our event photographers also happens to shoot unbelievable portrait shots and is often hired to shoot headshots for artists and performers.
As a fun, added feature to event photography, we started offering portrait photography for attendees and the feedback has been amazing.
At a recent sales meeting, 70% of the attendees sat for a portrait. The sitting takes less than 5 minutes and the finished and edited portraits are delivered within a week of the conference ending. We usually deliver the portraits to our client via a password-protected site, and then they provide the site information to the attendees.
Portrait photography works particularly well for internal meetings and sales meetings. Post-show meetings have shown that attendees love the photos and are using the portraits for Linkedin and anywhere else they need a professional headshot.
This is not a very expensive add-on to an event and is a fun way to offer an added benefit to attendees.
