Harbor Island Event Photography | Tiger Shark Banquet

September 1, 2009

Imagine the sound of waves lapping in the background. Stepping off your back porch and finding yourself on a white sand beach, the ocean mere feet away with dolphins in the distance. This was the setting for the Beaufort YMCA Tiger Shark swim team annual awards banquet.

The banquet was held in August on picturesque Harbor Island, SC located a few minutes from downtown Beaufort.

When doing live event photography, especially involving young children, you will find that most photographers will have a photo journalistic style. This results in more candid photographs and few group poses. After all, in most cases, these events are held for the enjoyment of the children. Most of them don’t think that posing for the strange man with the camera qualifies as fun.
