PSN’s annual Legislative Leadership Retreat hosts state Representatives and Senators from across the United States, along with a long list of special guests and panelists, including an invited White House speaker. PSN needed professional photos to highlight the most notable moments and guests.
"I'm British, so I'm always learning about American Politics and it is quite interesting to me. I thought it would be a challenge because it was a conference and event photography is often not the most enjoyable photography, you've really got to work your shots. I thought it'd be interesting because it was a chance to learn about progressive thoughts on where this country is going."
“We are using the photos on our website, in social media and in publications, and are intending to use them in our first Annual Report, as outlined in the project on Catchafire. We will also use them at events as part of slideshows.”
Francis’ photographs are promoting PSN’s overall message as well as their annual event.
“Francis was very professional and especially discreet as he moved around capturing photographs, which was greatly appreciated. He had a keen eye and awareness for knowing what elements need to be captured, and for taking photos that indicate the action and intensity of the event. We were grateful that he also captured venue setup photos as well. Francis made sure to ask exactly what we wanted captured ahead of time so that he could meet our needs, and he acquainted himself with key staff at the event. Francis provided us with electronic copies of our photographs in the format of our choice. We were extremely satisfied with the quality of the photos we received. We would definitely want to work with Francis again in the future.”
Francis photographed for 3 days resulting in $3K saved for PSN.
