Edinburgh Event photographer is similar to wedding photography. You need to ‘capture the moment’ and ensure you catch the highlights the day. There are no second chances.
I had a fantastic evening on when I recently had the pleasure of providing my Edinburgh event photographer service for a charity fund-raising boxing event. The evening was held at Dalmahoy Hotel and Country Club, Kirknewton. The Dalmahoy was a last minute change of venue due to the original site letting the boys down at the last minute. Great hospitality by the Dalmahoy Manager and staff, particularly at short notice.
The gallery below contains a selection of the photos taken at last week’s charity fund-raising event.
This boxing event was attended by around 200 guests. A great atmosphere, particularly when the boxing was underway. There was a charity auction (which included a signed Manchester United football and a pair of boxing gloves signed by World Champion boxer Joe Calzaghe). A lovely three-course meal provided was the perfect accompaniment in between 3 bouts of impressive boxing.
The guys who were boxing are all amateur boxers. What I kind of expected was lots of pushing and holding and not a lot of boxing. I couldn’t have been more wrong! These guys had a big audience, pride and went for it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sport where energy burns so quickly. Each bout consisted of three rounds of two minutes each. Each boxer looked knackered after their fight, total respect to professional boxers for their fitness levels. The guys who do this professionally must be seriously fit to do this for up to 12 rounds!
That was great being able to stand on the edge of the ring and get the best view of the fight (after the referee and boxers!). I was able to take lots of great photos. I love creating Edinburgh wedding photography and family photography most of the time, but
photographing these boxing matches is one the most exciting shoots I’ve done. What a buzz!
The whole event (tickets, meal, auction, donations, etc.) raised thousands of pounds for the nominated charities. I’m honoured to play my part in promoting the event, but all respect goes to the boys who fought and did so much to raise the cash. Well done lads!
I look forward to my next Edinburgh event photographer duties in the next few days!
