The photography coverage is to document the build up to the evening with guests arriving, the pre dinner speeches, this year hosted by comedian, author and presenter Clive Anderson, his insight in to his observations on people created much laughter within the room. The main evenings photography is to capture the all important awards, covering the jubilation as the winners are greeted by Clive and then the posed for group photographs with the awards. The location of the stage had the same as last year giving a much narrower and direct route to the stage, I had a lot of flexibility in my location and the bright and glittering stage display provided a great backdrop of tower blocks at night in which to capture the awards winners for their photograph with Clive and Gabby, the chair of IFS Pro Share.

The second set of awards takes place in the same venue tomorrow, this time celebrating the Financial Innovation Awards where comedian and impressionist Alistair McGowan will be comparing the event. Kit wise I had the full frame D4S with the 50mm Sigma prime art lens and the full frame D810 with 14-24mm wide zoom on, between them they covered candids, group photos and some of the wider interior and exterior photographs.
