Yay, event hosting is finally coming back to Singapore, with even less restrictions from the Covid-19 measures!


It will be important to document the events with photography or videography, be it for official posts or for keepsakes among friends and colleagues.


Nowadays almost everyone is armed with a powerful phone camera that takes awesome photos and videos, not only it has A.I features to make you look better, they allow you to share the images almost instantly. So why do you still need to engage an event photographer? Here are 5 reasons to choose an event photographer over your trusty smartphone.





  1. They are trained to take better photographs.

Yes, it is easy to take out your phone and take a picture with your friends and colleagues. But is it ok to have every shot with the extended hand look? Will a formal pose look better? Or why not have the best of both worlds? Did you forget to take the shot of the VIP or are you too engrossed with catching up with your friends?


The event photographer will usually arrive earlier to scout the event venue and surrounding locations to find the best spots and angles to take the best shots. They will also link up with the event planner or host to find out who are the key personnels in every event, utilising wide angle, close-up shots, the correct expressions etc for every moment.. to ensure NOTHING is missed out in every event. Not only that, they can also help you take the pictures with your phone as soon as they are available to do so.

2. They are well-equipped.


Every event photographer will be armed with an arsenal of lenses and flashes to ensure that they are able to take that shot before he misses the moment. They can separate the main subject from the busy background using a prime lens or capture the candle-lit moment using a correctly lit flash with the right shutter speed.
