Hey! I’m Liam…For over six years I have been specialising in event capture through photo and video with the aim of capturing the real atmosphere of an event without being a distraction. I have worked with I wide variety of national clients including Boomtown festival and Jisc showing that I can do anything from creative marketing campaigns to corporate events to weddings. I have also worked with many local Bath clients including; Bristech, Bath Digital Festival and The Bath Festival just to name a few. Working in the fast-paced events industry I have learnt to deal with anything that comes my way and never being afraid of new challenges.
After working in various roles within the hospitality and services industries I understood how important it was to have a personal connection with a business which is why I pride myself on being your point of contact from the start to the finish of the project. I have covered full day conventions solo where there were multiple sessions running at once so I can handle the pressure without loss of quality, however, I have some great associates to bring on board if the project requires but you will still have a personal experience directly with myself. As well as a personal experience I have also invested a lot of money into ensuring that my equipment is silent to operate so your guests will not be distracted by a loud camera shutter throughout an interesting talk or an intimate moment.
Before the 2020 lockdown I was working as a freelance event organiser which shares a lot of useful skills for a photographer in the events field - Time management, dealing well under pressure, meeting tight deadlines, coordinating multiple locations and handling client communication just to had a few. I like to see this experience as not only a benefit to myself but to anyone who I work with, I am more than happy to jump in and help a situation at any type of event from fixing AV equipment at live events, setting up conference halls or rushing tissues to the brides mother! I never like to be standing around doing nothing at an event so will always use my free time to help out the other suppliers or guests if it's needed.
I absolutely love working in the events industry because of the excitment that comes with it, no matter what event I have worked on from a highly technical coding talk at the watershed, Bristol to a Charity dinner under the planes hanging in the national history museum in London no day is the same. I always had an interest in organising parties and gatherings growing up but never thought about it being a career until I go to university and was asked if I wanted to capture freshers week for the students' union. Capturing all the daytime and evening events with no event experience for a week was an incredible opportunity and although I hardly slept that week it was one of my favourite event experiences - oh and I forgot to mention it was only me and one other working this!
I am always more than happy to talk about my past experiences with anyone interested, if you want a chat then get in touch!
