Pro Share's annual conference, now in its 27th year, is the opportunity for plan issuer companies, plan administrators, advisors and providers to meet at one of the largest events of its kind in the UK. At the event industry experts deliver a series of seminars and case studies, their are also panel discussions and keynote speeches from business leaders and academics.

The event has more speakers during the day then ever before, my brief is to capture the networking and each of the speakers throughout the day. Their was a mystery plenary session straight after lunch, where the attendees were transformed into a boomwhacker orchestra thanks to the patience, humour and shack-a-lacking genius of 'Professor' Mark Hunter of Creative Team Events.

I opted to use the 70-200mm and prime 20mm wide lenses attached to two Nikon cameras, the larger zoom focal length is perfect for discreet images throughout the event and allows me to pick out the speakers and guests without being too intrusive, also the shallow depth of field down to 1.4 helped in lower lit areas. It was a very busy days photography but with a real variety of areas to cover a lot of fun.
