I had been asked to photograph this event last year as they were after good quality images of the awards in front of their event boards. In order to achieve this, it meant taking lighting. I have a 3 head studio lighting kit which is mains powered, but when I am on my own its a bit of task to set up and down with this, not to mention the weight to carry/wheel it about! So for this I used speed lights and this kit is a lot more mobile and doesn’t take up much space! They were very happy with my images and I was asked back to photography the Awards Ceremony again.

I really enjoy events such as this where they are rewarding and giving back to those organizations / groups / people who have gone the extra mile. There is always such a good vibe. I wasn’t feeling 100% well for this job yet the high spirits of the night carried me through!
