Kirklees Business Conference 2019, John Smiths Stadium, Huddersfield
Yesterday I photographed the Kirklees Business Conference at John Smiths Stadium at Huddersfield, West Yorkshire. The conference is organised by the Mid Yorkshire Chamber of Commerce and is the largest business to business event in Huddersfield. I've photographed every Kirklees Business Conference for at least the last five years so it's always good to see how the event changes. Yesterday's event was brilliant, it was really busy all day and all of the seminars were full so they certainly got the numbers in. Events like this are perfect for my style of documentary photography, my brief as always is just to capture the event, make it look busy and fun. I'll be the first to admit that my arrangement for the day enables to be chat to folk. It's a great networking opportunity for me but I use it just to catch up with people who I've not seen for quite some time and have a laugh. I still take plenty of pictures though.
At events like this, I have to run around like a crazy person and find myself always trying to be in two places at once. It's a shame because sometimes I just want to stay and listen to the speakers. David Abbotts psychology of pricing seminar sounded really interesting and I would have loved to have listened to the whole thing but my job is to document the whole event. I think the highlight of the day was the seminar which was called Kirklees the place to make it. Once again I only managed to catch five minutes of the talk but it was fascinating. I chatted to some people that had attended this seminar and they were stating that it was very, very positive which is always a good thing.
The whole event had a positive buzz, very busy and lots of people that I've not seen for a while. It's always good to turn up at these events so people don't forget about me as I do have a habit to hide. But, I just spend the day just photographing people which is what I do,
