Last month Decoy Media were tasked with documenting the first Rainmaking Summit to take place in London (the event previously being held in Copenhagen). The summit took place in the Studio Spaces building, which is a mixed use photography and studio and events venue.
Through our growing relationship of working alongside the Rainmaking Innovation and Startupbootcamp teams we knew that this event would not disappoint with interesting content for the attendees, a great space to work in from a creative perspective, and an overall fun environment.
The summit’s aims were to inspire and teach corporates on how to work with startups. This is a real collaborative methodology that allows bigger more established businesses to learn how to be as agile as successful start-ups. The benefit to smaller start-ups and scale-ups is that the more established businesses they partner with have many years of industry expertise, and a huge wealth of contacts to implement their ideas on a world stage.
The event was split into three streams (and rooms) labelled Dealing with yourselves, Dealing with startups and Dealing with everything else. In each room were a series of presentations or discussion panels followed by interactive workshops. The brief was to photograph and document the event overall and capture every speaker. Alongside this we always like to inject as much creativity into our projects as possible. This naturally develops into us finding unique perspectives in the venue, utilising the great lighting setup to alter the mood of photos through the album and using differing equipment to create compelling images.
Our technique as experienced event photographers is to shoot a lot throughout a day like this and then only pick the best composed / best reactions for final delivery to the client, whilst of course still fulfilling the brief and often over delivering on content, turnaround times and quality.
If you work in the within a company looking to host a similar event and have been tasked with finding a photographer please get in touch, our experience and knowledge of the industry will make it as painless as possible.
This project was a great success, producing clean and striking imagery of an innovative seminar and networking event in the Fintech industry, between corporates and startups.
