Sargeant Ball Dreghorn Barracks. Recent I photographed the Sargeant Ball at Dreghorn Barracks. First of all for everyone who has read this blog post, I’ve now completed all of the evening photos which can be viewed HERE and purchased HERE

One of my absolute favourite events that I photographed last year was the Sargeants Ball at Dreghorn Barracks. I love shooting events which have a completely different and often more relaxed feel than weddings and while I do enjoy shooting events they can drive me crazy with their disorganisation (note I don’t share all of the events I photograph for various reasons). However, the Sargeants Ball was great as it was extremely well organised and everyone was a pleasure to deal with.

This year I was asked to return to Dreghorn Barracks to photograph the same event although in a different part of the barracks. Last year I had a large area to work in but used very simple lighting while this year I had a fairly small space to work in but brought proper flash heads (these made my life so much easier!).

This job basically entailed photographing the Sargeants and their partners (although I took a couple photos of the three privates as well) and then photographing the evening events. The gentleman who hired me, incidentally someone different from last year, also hired a comedian who was absolutely superb and a big thank you for the food on the evening (much needed!)

As mentioned everything was really well organised, everyone was really nice to work with and it was a great event to photograph. Now I’m doing the photography full time (unlike last year) I’m finding myself photographing a lot more things, still including weddings but also more portraits, food, events, cars (post coming on this soon) and various other things. Working full time as a photographer is a pretty awesome job but also an extremely busy one.

Please note the staged photos below were picked out completely at random. Hope you like the small selection of photos below…
