Today I had a fun assignment. I got to go over to the Convention Center and photograph the setup for a big charity event.
Two domes of the convention center were ready for the 2,500 guests…and before anyone got there, I photographed the details. Ryan Hanson, owner of BeEvents designed the space and he used the theme of “circles and squares”. He incorporated glass spheres at the three VIP lounges, along with hanging curtains of various shapes, each branded with a sponsor’s logo. It is tough to work with a space that has such height to it, but a giant inflatable arch will do the trick, right? I loved seeing the repetition of arches throughout the design…and on such a huge scale.
Dramatic lighting was used throughout the room as well, constantly changing and playing off each other. Summer Harsh created arrangements that echoed the use of spheres and worked with the different color schemes of the three lounges. Summer and Ryan also decked out the greenrooms for that night’s entertainment, it is amazing how you can make pipe and drape rooms look homey!
Here are my favorite images!
