What about the Lightning Booth we’ve heard about?
The Lightning Booth offered by Kip Beelman Photography is a fun and visually exciting way to liven up your event and add more great photos and portraits than ordinary coverage.
Our experience is offered at $600 for a three hour rental. Each rental includes: White backdrop, props, on-site attendant, and social/sharing capability to Twitter and Facebook with event hashtags. Custom branding for your event is included and instant printing is available for an additional $300. Please contact our team to discuss your event and to determine which options are right for you.
What do we receive?
All images from your event are posted online at http://proofs.kipbeelmanphotography.com within one week. Prints, individual digital files and discs may be purchased by guests a la carte with all images are available at no cost as watermarked images sized perfectly for sharing via Facebook and email. You will receive all high resolution files as a downloadable zip file.
What do you photograph at an event?
We will work in tight alignment with any specific needs an event may have, but we ultimately cover all the details, candid moments, scripted moments and guests.
What about licensing and usage?
An event commission allows use of the images for personal use, internal communication, web use and promotional materials in perpetuity at no additional cost. We use industry standard licensing terms and rates if your needs expand to print advertising or broadcast.
Do you retouch or enhance the images?
Images will be delivered with my post-processing style, but we don’t retouch as a rule. We are happy to accommodate special requests and quote accordingly.
We’re planning a team-building event at Alderbrook Resort (for example) and would love to have our event covered. Do you travel?
We would be delighted to join you on your leadership retreat, team-building function or event. We have a simple travel card that covers every geo-destination in Washington and beyond. Please review our Business Portrait FAQ if on-site business portraits are needed.
