TBM Breakthrough Event Photographer, Clinton Lee
This article is writing in consultation with our event photographer, Clinton Lee.
Clinton is one of the senior photographers in Vivid Snaps. Intensely passionate about multiple disciplines within the realm of professional photography. And special events like TBM Breakthrough Ceremony requires the event photographer to be able to think quickly on their feet, react to any situation, and also be able to work under pressure.
TBM Breakthrough Ceremony Event Photo Opportunity
The location of this TBM Breakthrough event was about 5 storey underground. The event consists of key highlights at the ground level and activities at the basement level. The most direct way of shuttling between these areas is usually via a staircase. Hence, it is necessary for the event photographer and event videographer to be physically fit.
When possible, you may consider arranging for 2 event photographers if you are working with a tight schedule to avoid missing of any important segments.
TBM Breakthrough Group Photo
When large group photos are to be taken during the TBM event, it should be communicated with the event photographer. A suitable camera angle will need to be identified and wide angle lens should be prepared. In the case of an extremely tight space, a fisheye lens may also be needed. Fisheye lens is a special equipment and not usually carried by an event photographer.
The camera angle can usually be decided on the day itself, however you may need to request our photographer to report earlier for a site-recce. The early reporting time should be communicated and catered for during request of quotation.
TBM Breakthrough Event Videographer & Video Highlight
While nice visuals are one of the priorities when our event videographer is filming at your TBM groundbreaking event, there are several other important aspects. For instance, if you have 2 sets of audio mixers & AV setup. One at the ground level and another at the basement. Our video crew will have to tap audio at both mixers to capture the audio for post-production. This requires the videographer to arrive on-site earlier, as shuttling between the 2 locations will require time.
In order to capture important moments, a second static camera angle will be required to be setup at the TBM breakthrough area. An elevated platform for the media will be necessary if the area is expected to be crowded. For safety reason, an additional crew should also be stationed by the static camera to prevent any accidental tripping on the tripod legs.
The recommended video crew for a TBM Breakthrough event shall be:
- Main videographer
- Second videographer
- Assistant (for sound & general assisting)
All the requirements should be discussed with our project coordinators during the quotation phase, so they can be properly catered and costed for. To avoid any unexpected cost arising.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) & Safety Gear
Our event photographer and event videographer will comply with the safety requirements of the event. The PPE can be provided by the client, or we can purchase them independently at a cost. Such equipment includes safety helmet, safety shoes, goggles and hi-vis vest.
Other than TBM Breakthrough and Groundbreaking events, our photographers and videographers also cover other media production for shipyard, pharmaceutical plants and construction sites where PPE is required.
Safety Induction Course for Photographer & Videographer
We understand that SIC may be required for special events like TBM Breakthrough event or job site. Our event photographer and event videographer will comply with the requirement by attending the safety induction course as needed.
The requirement for SIC should be communicated during the quotation phase. Event photographers and videographers will usually charge a half-day fee for attending of such courses. The fee covers of the time required for attending the SIC as needed.
