These events are different to a normal studio session. Rather than booking a personal session inside a closed set, special events are held inside pet shops or outdoors at expos. Each shoot may only last a few minutes depending on the number of people waiting, whereas a studio session can take over an hour.
A studio session includes multiple lighting setups, different colour backdrops and multiple props if desired. A special event may still include professional lighting, but only one colour backdrop and limited props. Special events do not incur a booking fee and it's first in first served.
I upload photos of the event to my blog and give you the chance to purchase online and share the images on social media.
