case studies


for Large Organizations


You’ve got hundreds of people showing up, important people speaking… and you need it all caputured— at the same time you are planning and running the whole thing!

Conferences can be particularly challenging for several reasons: It’s easy for inexperienced photographers to either make the event look dull, or get in the way of your attendees focusing on what matters.

Secondly, the same client that usually books HuthPhoto Conference coverage, usually also has some of her most busy days RUNNING the event. So there’s no time to babysit and give direction to less prepared photographers. 

Finally there’s a LOT of hours to a conference, and frankly lost of downtime for a photographer— so it can get expensive to get the needed coverage. 


HuthPhoto has several advantages to take away your conference day stresses. We have over 30 years of covering a wide variety of events, so we know the kind of images you are looking for (see below) without your having to spell it all out. 

👥 We also have a team approach, without photographers with a variety of skills and price-points, so we can put together an ideal package to get what you need, at a price that’s better than other single photographers at our experience level.

And our secret sauce is knowing the shots that you’ll really love and use on your social media, and share with your organization to show off how cool the event was.

💡Tip:  With our skills, we can zip in and snap the key moments without disturbing the flow and focus of your speakers.

rough cost: 

A short 2 hour speaker series might be $500, a single day conference $1250+, and multi-day conferences $2000-$5000+

special options: 

Add in a group photo, business headshots for attendees, or a photo slideshow to present
all the event highlights during the closing dinner (and later post to your social channels).

We can also easily post a web gallery of the images so you can promote next year’s
event, and attendees can grab photos of them to share with their company/on social.

We understand that you need quality coverage to showcase the best of what your conference events have to offer!


  • think outside the conference room — some of the best images come from the networking & coffee time, or when people meet at the registration table
  • stock images — a good photographer will snap evergreen images of people taking notes, the awards in a row, a wide photo of the event. These all are useful to put in your promos for the next year’s event
  • have your photographer supply a set of fun moments and highlight photos to run as a slide show during dinner — everyone will be engaged, laughing, pointing & posting their own snaps to social media saying how fun your event is

How do Huthphoto Conference photos turn out?

Process Overview


Get in touch, tell us about your conference or trade show, the number of attendees, a rough idea of speakers/sessions, and the feel of your organization. A great early step is a brainstorming session over Zoom with Ken & Colin where we can listen to your needs, and share the ideas we have to make your conference coverage perfect.


We’ll quickly send your info on how we work, the styles of photos that might work best for you, and some preliminary pricing info.


We plan your photo day including:

  • a schedule to get the most the time
  • ideas for getting you flexible photo coverage, ways we can save you money and our tips to make the day a breeze
  • getting you photos through the conference to give to your social media team

Let’s have a chat… 

We love to brainstorm conference coverage with you. Once you have a date and a rough outline of your schedule and key photo needs — let’s talk about what photo plan might suit you (and your boss’ budget) best.

Did you know?

HuthPhoto now offers video services.

Consider how video interviews, short praises from attendees, or other video assets could be used to not only show off how great this year was… but to also promote next year as the “don’t miss” event.
