Photos and footage from the AAPA 2023 Conference

Conference Name: AAPA 2023 Conference

Conference Date: May 20, 2023

Conference Location: Nashville Music City Center

Services Provided:

  • I provided conference documentary photography of all speakers, events, award ceremonies, breakouts, and parties.
  • I also provided video services at this conference by filming all events and editing a 3-minute sizzle reel of highlights.

Job Details:

I had the privilege of capturing the essence of the AAPA 2023 Conference held at the Nashville Music City Center. My role encompassed comprehensive conference documentary photography and video services. What made this assignment unique was my ability to offer a single photographer and videographer hybrid rate. This approach allowed me to seamlessly transition between capturing both stills and video, resulting in a rich and dynamic visual narrative.

To ensure the highest quality output, I dedicated two cameras, one for still photography and the other for video. This setup enabled me to smoothly switch between the two formats, ensuring that no critical moments were missed. I have to admit, this was not the easiest workflow to get used to as it required lugging alot of gear around. As hindsight is 20/20 I would budget an assistant next time to roll a gear car around with me to shoot.

Additional Notes:

I found immense satisfaction in adopting a multifaceted role during the AAPA 2023 Conference. Balancing the art of photography with the dynamics of videography allowed for a more immersive and comprehensive documentation of this significant event. Hiring an assistant to roll gear around would be helpful next year. I had thought about having that assistant also double as an audio/lighting grip as well if we needed to do any ‘on the fly’ video interviews, video testimonials, or conference attendee interviews. My data and power systems were well organized at a team headquarters which allowed me to leave batteries charged, and computers linked in to organize downloads.
