Work Christmas parties, some love them, some don’t. I personally love work Christmas parties. Corporate Event Photography is one of my favourite things to cover. I get to mingle with happy people having a good time, what’s not to like?
So this Corporate Event Photography featured Lingfield Park racecourse. This was an Alice In Wonderland themed event. Every year they change the theme which I think is really cool. They go to town on the decoration. It pays off.
Last year the theme was Narnia, again, amazing!
So I was tasked with arriving early to capture the payout before the staff entered the room and got to grips with the drinks! The usual challenge I find is allowing the smoke machine to do its job. But it takes forever. Smoke machines really help the overal look. Creating a more atmospheric feel.
DJ lights beaming through the smoke and dark corners, along with projected imagery and table decoration is amazing. But even better (here comes the big kid in me), was the car computer simulatiors! Wow what a great event.
There were weird creatures on toadstools, christmas trees covered in snow, giant bottles of drink, clocks and other imagery on screens. This was one fantastic event.
Lingfield Park always go the full hog, when they host. I know because I do so much Corporate Event Photography. Mainly during the festive period however. Usually I shoot around 4 or 5 events in December. Always images are supplied on USB to the client for internal use. Nobody likes to see public advertised intoxicated imagery of themselves on socials do they?!
Photography is always a great thing to have at such events however, to capture those amazing team building moments. To show you can let your hair down with work collegues. To remeber those moments, you can’t in the morning!

Or even let someone else do it for you… Give Lingfield Park a shout!
