Who and what is Event-Photos?
After seeing two guys in a shopping mall with a strange camera that had thick wires coming out of it and watching these guys taking children’s fantasy photos against a greenscreen, and then delivering the finished prints in two sizes (7x5 and 10x8) in just a few minutes, Ian was sold! “It wasn’t the technology that got me, it was how readily parents handed over the cash!”
At the time Ian was employed by Bray Imaging, a UK manufacturer of specialist film processors. After reporting back to the Board, Ian was dispatched back to the US to secure training and distribution rights in the UK for the equipment and most importantly the software now known as 'Darkroom'.
After training in the US, Ian began selling training, equipment and software packages to the UK 'early adopters' the real pioneers of the new technology, many are still in the business today!
In 2001 Ian parted with Bray and established Event-Photos, it quickly grew in to one of the UK's largest and leading event photography service providers.
Today Event-Photos has 45 event teams nationwide and is still growing.
The business is split in to three specific areas;
1) Event Photographers - We are event photographers in our own right attending hundreds of events annually, event photography is our day-job and we take it very seriously, we believe we offer the most professional service available in the UK today.
2) Training and Mentoring - First class providers of Event Photography specific training and mentoring in all aspects of event photography, including but not limited to photography, lighting, posing, workflow, equipment selection, sales and marketing.
3) Central Booking Agency - with a nationally recognized brand clients are confident to book, Event-Photos provides it’s members with hundreds of paying event photography jobs on a “fixed fee basis”.
As far as we are aware, Event-Photos is the only organisation that can offer the full package from training to success on a non franchise basis.
