Amateur photographer need to cover a community function




Hey friends, we are having a community event (diwali celebrations) for Maheshwaris in GTA at a banquet hall in Brampton. We wonder if there is anyone who does photography as fun activity/hobby and would be willing to cover the event for 4-5 hrs for some extra pocket money and dinner. NO professional photographer needed - our budget would be less than what a professional charges per hour!

It is simple function - a get together for about 150 persons and we need someone to cover the event which would have some skits/dances and a couple of speeches.

It would suit someone who has a reasonably OK SLR Camera and who knows when to click. May be a young student who wants to make some money or a seasoned adult who would be interested in making some friends on the side.

We will have about 3 such events per year and we could consider taking help from the same person for all of them.

How much will they be paid for the event?

The best is to create a public Google photos or Flickr album or a public FB page, where all the attendees can click the photos at the event and upload them.

Or a semi-private group for the attendees and you can be the moderator/admin of that group.

Could be even a WhatsApp group if you want.

Then out of all the photos uploaded you can pick and choose the best. People have fairly good smartphone cameras or decent DSLR's with them thesedays. They take decent photos thesedays and love to upload or share them.
Especially the younger generation

So ask them to do that. Then you can pick & choose the good ones. Even if only 10 % of the photos taken by them, turn out to be good, it will be worth it.

Thanks for your suggestion Mitron...... and we have done that on previous functions. However, if one wants to cover the whole function nicely and in good quality photos it does not work as desired. People tend to click photos in which they have interest, their families, their friends or their own children performing. For example, if you want a photo of each performance, you will find mostly photos focused on each person's child, not the group in its entirety. And obviously you do not want one person from each table standing and taking photos of their table while some function is going on. People should be focusing on the performance while independent photographer also clicks some photos of the atmosphere created by each performance and non performance.
