MLF Investments was holding their annual investor meeting at The Inn at Palmeto Bluff in South Carolina. The client wanted to present each attendee, over 60 of them, with a thirty page photo book of the event that was customized with at least 6 to 10 photos of the person who received the book.
I brought an assistant who was also an acomplished photographer to shoot as well as download and archive photos.
This type of shooting is a bit tricky. We needed to be unobtrusive but we also had to get the shots, and we had to get a LOT of photos to be able to cover all attendees sufficiently to create individualized books for everyone.
MLF arranged for us to stay at the resort to eliminate travel time and maximize photo opportunities. We not only got some great photos, we had a great time doing it.
The speakers at the dinners were Lou Holtz, of football fame, and Gordon Bethune, author of From Worst to First. I was too busy shooting to pay attention to their talks during the event but I’ve watched the DVD I received from MLF several times since then. They were inspirational, motivational and entertaining speakers.
This was the second shoot with MLF. Two years before I had the pleasure of photographing their two-day event at Pebble Beach in California.
