Building My Photography Skills in Event Photography

Overhead of Personal style project by Lauren Crook

Over the past few months, I’ve gone on trips and organized photoshoots with other skilled photographers. I wanted to build my skills as a photography and learn new techniques from others. This isn’t my first rodeo with planning and organizing a personal project for myself. Read more about the first personal project I created for myself here.

My last personal project included 3 types of photography: landscape, portraits and events. This time I decided to solely focus this project on events because that is my desired career path. At the beginning stages of planning I chose a few events that were community based and then some events that were put on by BYU-Idaho. However, towards the middle of the project, I found way more community events at my disposal, especially with the Fourth of July happening.

I ended up going to four different community events. The amount of hours I spent on this project was around 30 hours. That included attending the events, taking the images, editing and designing MOO cards. These MOO cards are small squares that have an image that I took with my contact information on the other side. I plan to give these out to companies that hold events and that I want to work with. My plan is shown below:
