Fraud Force: Event Photography at The Nines

Late last year, I was contacted by another local photographer to assist him in covering an industry conference and trade show in Portland. He photogaphed some of the events while I was the photographer for other portions of the multi-day conference.

The event photography at The Nines included conference keynote speakers on stage, with an audience of several hundred folks learning about industry trends, topics, and case studies.

In the evenings after things wound down at the formal conference, a variety of Portland nighttime destinations allowed folks to kick back, have some fun, and build relationships. I photographed at Punch Bowl Social and Oba for evening event photos.

Oregon Story Board Demo Day

Last week I had the chance to do some work in Portland with some Hollywood Theatre event photography for the Oregon Story Board Demo Day. Oregon Story Board showcased five companies on stage, with each offering a bit of insight into the projects, passions, and people that make things happen.

This was a new Portland event photography venue for me, but the images from before the event, the main program, and a VIP reception afterward turned out great and told the story. Here’s a selection of images (with a link to the full set at the bottom).

Portland’s Gerding Theater at the Armory was filled with interested parties as each company shared its product, service, and story.

LinkedIn Live: Oregon Zoo Event Photography

Earlier this year I photographed LinkedIn Live, an event for professionals from a variety of industries to learn about business networking and how to make the most of the LinkedIn platform. I enjoyed doing photography at the Oregon Zoo conference center. There were several individual speakers, a couple panels, and plenty of informal networking time.

LogCamp Fundraiser Photos

Last weekend I had a fun Saturday evening at the PREM Group offices photographing a fundraiser for LogCamp, a great Portland-based nonprofit that, in their words, is trying to “end the technology education deficit for low-income, at-risk, foster, and minority youth living in under-served communities across Oregon.”

The evening included some great food, a DJ, comedy from Comedy Sportz, and other holiday activities. Here are some of the photos; you can view all of the photos on Facebook.
