One of the most enjoyable types of events I get to photograph are fancy dress parties. And whether guests are hamming it up for the camera or joking among themselves, a costume instantly allows the revellers to take life less seriously. And that’s golddust for the photographic art.
Sure you can take a few snaps on your mobile phone, but being able to have a more enjoyable, more rounded experience of the event, I strongly recommend having both a photobook and slideshow created because these two things create a narrative — and a party is never about just a single snapshot. Rather it’s a story made up of each and every story of the guests in attendance. This is a slideshow of a birthday party for my partner’s goddaughter.
