The Australian Small Business Champion Awards presents an opportunity for small businesses to be recognised and awarded for the amazing dedication and passion they have for running a small business.
The event, presented by Precedent Productions was this year held at The Star Sydney Event Centre and was attended by over 1,000 people. The floor section of the Centre could not possibly fit 1,000 people, so 100 or so were seated in booths watching over the event from atop.
Thanks to Crystal Productions these events go off without a hitch – the lighting on-stage was beautiful and well lit and the sea of rainbow coloured lights created an energizing vibe that excited guests as they walked up to the stage to receive their award.
For us, as event photographers, this is a massive production. During the event we had three photographers to cover the on-stage awards, another on atmospheric and entertainment shots and a photographer capturing the most important official award photo in the studio. The extended team for this is a salesperson selling the photo packages, friendly support staff and an usher who takes people off-stage and into the studio.
Here are some photos we captured as the night unfolded.
