Project: Creation of Landing Page within photographer’s website
Client: Conference and Convention Photographers
Location: McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, IL.
The conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography have gone a step further in their efforts to secure more clients holding their conferences, conventions and other special events in one of the biggest convention centers in the Midwest, McCormick Place.
For a number of years the conference and convention photographers have been traveling to Chicago to provide special event photography coverage in and around the downtown area for many national trade associations; so it was only logical that they would want to showcase the imagery that they have been capturing to promote their clients’ associations to promote their own photography.
In order to attract the interest of meeting planners and special event coordinators responsible for organizing nation conferences and conventions taking place in the greater Chicagoland area, the photographers created a slideshow centered website page where the organizers can quickly and efficiently look at sample imagery from past and current of the photographers’ clients who have held their special event in Chicago.
With the creation of this new landing page the conference and convention photographers hope to offer a resource for any and all meeting planners and special event coordinators that may be looking for special event photographers to capture and document either a portion of the conference or convention; or to hire a photographer to capture and document the entirety of the conference or convention proceedings. This landing page will be the “eye candy” to peek the interest of the meeting planners and to hopefully entice them to inquire about obtaining additional information on how to have the experienced photographers of Caught in the Moment provide the photography services for their own special event.

The conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography have just returned from the greater Chicago, IL area after providing the conference and special event photography services for their last conference of the year in one of the many venues hosting conferences and conventions.
This particular year saw the conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography covering several conferences and conventions in various hotels in and around the downtown Chicago area as well as at McCormick Place Convention Center. As the calendar year comes to a close and the photographers return from their most recent trip to the Chicago, IL area, they take this time to reflect on the number of times that they provided convention, conference and special event photography services.
It seems like each year there is one particular conference and convention host city where the photographers travel to more than any other. This year that particular honor goes to the greater Chicagoland area who was host to a number of annual special events where the conference and convention photographers not only at McCormick Place Convention Center but also at many of the other hotels and conference and convention venues in and around downtown Chicago, IL. The photographers, while thankful for the number of conferences and conventions for whom they were able to provide photography services for, are already looking forward to the upcoming year and wondering which city will become the Chicago of next year. Meaning the city that will host them the most number of times to provide photography services for conference and convention clients.

Project: Special Event Photography Coverage at Conference
Client: National Association
Location: Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. Las Vegas, NV
There are many reasons why the resorts and casinos in Las Vegas attract millions of conventioneers and conference attendees each year. One of those reasons is the versatility and flexibility of the special event venues. There are dozens of resorts and casinos in Las Vegas, but even within each one of these there is a wide variety of flexible spaces where convention and conference organizers can plan to hold their special event; so that they are not confined to the space designated as the convention center area of the resort and casino.
As a case in point, this brief article will describe the experience of the conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography recently provided all of the photography services for a national trade association who was holding their annual conference at the convention center situated within the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. The conference and convention organizers wanted to hold a special networking event in a setting that was different from the setting that the conventioneers and conference attendees had grown accustomed to as the conference progressed within the area designated as the convention center area of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino. This special event was to be a networking event where the conference attendees could exchange pertinent information related to the national association to which they belong but in a more casual setting. Having a wide selection of partner restaurants within the footprint of the resort and casino allowed for the conference attendees and conventioneers to feel as though they were removed from the convention center area but were close enough so that the transit time was only a few minutes walk but they could feel as though they were in a completely different special event venue.

Location: Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV
The conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography are very familiar with the different venues around the Las Vegas Strip since they have been covering conferences and conventions in Las Vegas for a number of years. The most recent conference for which our photographers provided the photography coverage was at the Convention Center within the Mandalay Bay Casino and Resort Center, but the next time that our photographers will be in Las Vegas will be off the strip at the Las Vegas Convention Center to cover an annual conference for a national trade association.
There are two main reasons why our conference and convention photographers work so frequently with national associations who are holding their special event, whether it’s a conference, a convention, or an annual sales meeting, in Las Vegas. One is that our conference and convention photographers are very familiar with the special event venues on and around the Las Vegas Strip; from different casinos and resorts, to the Las Vegas Convention Center, to the special event and convention centers within the different casinos and resorts. The other reason is that our photography studio has an already established relationship with many national trade associations from having provided photography coverage for their previous conventions, conferences or special events; so when the association holds their special event in Las Vegas, it is a natural and logical choice to select our conference and convention photographers to provide the photography since they already know the quality of the work and the actual photographer who has already established a working relationship with the event planners and the conference and convention attendees.

Client: International Trade Association
Location: McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, IL
The conference and convention photographers of Caught in the Moment Photography are fortunate to count in their clientele many national industry and trade organizations many of whom are based in Chicago, Il. This particular calendar year some of the organizations and associations that are not based in Chicago are incorporating the area into their rotation of different cities across the United States where they are holding their yearly conference or convention where they give their members an opportunity to learn more about specifics of their industry as well as giving them an opportunity to network with other members.
One of those associations provides services to the airline industry which gives the photographers a special insight into the behind the scene workings while traveling to provide the conference and convention photography services to the various cities around the country. The variety of industry and trade associations that hire our photographers to cover their conferences or convention is quite varied but the fact that this particular one deals specifically with services that they take part of on the way to provide the photography coverage makes it extra fun for the photographers because they can experience first hand what they would have just learned in either the keynote address or in the various breakout sessions.
It is for this reason and because the client is a long term client who has hired out photography studio for a number of year to provide the conference photography at a number of convention centers around the country that out photographers are looking forward to attending their special event at the McCormick Convention Center in downtown Chicago this year.
