Event Tips 5 Reasons to Have a Photographer Speak At Your Next Event

5 Reasons to Have a Photographer Speak At Your Next Event

Hello I’m Natalia, the Digital Content Marketer for Speakers Corner.

If a picture is worth a thousand words then photographers are worth every breathe when it comes to speaking at your next event. 

From captivating audiences with their amazing adventures in the wilderness of Madagascar and beyond, to sharing their experiences of overcoming adversity and loss in war torn battle, photographers are truly inspirational and capable of keeping any audience at the edge of their seats. 

So if you're looking for a speaker with stunning photography skills, a captivating story, versatility and more, learn the 5 ways of how a photographer can captivate any audience at your next event!

Focus and vision


Photographers pride themselves on having vision and focus, no pun intended. But their single-minded focus to 'get the shot', their patience in times of chaos and their determination to execute their vision is the perfect blend for a truly reliable and clear-minded speaker. 

Great stories 


Some of our favourite photographers have traveled the globe to get the best shot and the coldest stories. From diving into polar waters with Doug Allan, to walking across Madagascar with Levison Wood, photographers don't have to dig deep to tell stories of exploration since it's who they are and what they do! 



One of the best examples of photographic versatility is Giles Duley. Giles is a freelance photographer who made the move from the world of fashion to Afghanistan, where he fell victim to an IED blast that left him a triple amputee. Determined to use his injury for the positive, Giles set up Legacy of War to document the lasting impact of war on individuals and their communities.

Photographers like Giles who cross boundaries and strive for the pursuit of a deeper passion are the ones who truly connect with audiences. Their stories show that with determination and passion for purpose, you don't have to be defined and can always step beyond your expectations and pursue the things you've only dreamt of. 



It takes true grit to accomplish what some photographers call a pretty standard Monday. From speakers like Sir David Attenborough's photographer Doug Allen who waits hours in below freezing waters to get a shot of a swimming polar bear, to adventurers like Felicity Aston MBE became the first woman in the world to ski across Antarctica alone and capture stunning expedition photography and exhilerating footage. Photographers are resilient and best matched to share stories of resilience that motivate, inspire and captivate audiences beyond the lens.



Photographers like Steve McCurry and Steve Uzzell have worked in the business for over 40 years. They have traveled the world, witnessed unbelievable stories and have worked with some of the greatest publications to produce timeless photography that defines history. Using striking photographs as illustrations of possibility and creativity, they turn their experience into motivation for an audience.

Encourage your audience to feel a sense of adventure through the lens of some of our favourite photographers at your next event.
