When taking on new event photography assignments in Amsterdam and throughout the Netherlands, one of the first things I ask clients about is the venue where they will be hosting their event. As an event photographer, this is highly important to me as there are many things I take into consideration when planning a shoot: the interior architectural style, natural and artificial light sources, possible seating layouts, and other variables which may influence my photography style, the tools I choose to incorporate, and the overall look and feel of the final images.
It should go without saying that that there are some venues I prefer over others as a result of these factors. In addition to venues influencing how events are experienced by guests, the above-mentioned variables are also highly influential as to how events are portrayed through photography. One place I have recently added to my personal list of preferred venues is the Beurs van Berlage event and conference center in Amsterdam. Located in the in the heart of the city, this beautiful and historic venue offers an elegant atmosphere with exquisite architecture and lighting; each of these variables contribute to a fantastic photography experience that allows me to capture the images that "wow" my clients.
The photographic success and enjoyment I have experienced at this venue has been so rewarding that I recently got in touch with the Beurs van Berlage marketing and management team. After viewing the images I've captured for clients at their venue, I was offered the unique and exciting opportunity to be enlisted as one of their recommended photographers. I am truly honored to receive such an opportunity and greatly look forward to collaborating with Beurs van Berlage to provide their clients with outstanding event photography services.
