In February, Hills engaged me to photograph their ANZ channel event with partners Genetec. The event was held at Mercure Kooindah Waters on the Central Coast, a venue I am regularly working in.
Aside from the usual conference and product demos, I also covered a casual poolside dinner, awards presentation night and an afternoon round of golf on the Kooindah Waters course.
Sunset by the pool made for some great images
With no lighting provided by the pool other than a single floodlight, I had to get a bit creative to capture this image of the whole group by the pool after the sun went down. With one of my cameras mounted on a tripod on the far side of the pool, I used a flash on the end of a long pole, and a remote trigger, and slowly walked through the group taking a total of 7 shots. I merged these together to give the image below showing only the parts of the group that were lit by the flash in each shot.
After shooting this group portrait on Day one of the conference, I provided a print for each delegate at the conference close.
I think I actually preferred shooting golfers to playing the game itself.
I had my eye on the skies on night two and managed to find a spare minute during the awards dinner to duck out to the terrace and capture this scene over the branded greens.
