As an experienced Dallas event photographer (as well as a proud VisitDallas Partner), William Morton of Morton Visuals has been providing Dallas convention photography since 2015. Our Dallas conference photography covers a variety of business meetings, annual conferences, and large-scale conventions. Every year we photograph events for several repeat clients. William has first-hand knowledge of VIPs and key personnel, and of how the event flows, so clients can keep consistency in their approach from year to year. We’ve been specializing in corporate event photography since 2009.

Our team is committed to professionalism, and we specialize in corporate photography. Therefore, we are extremely familiar with how specific photos can benefit a campaign, brand, or company. The fact that we have 30 years of professional photography experience, redundant (top-of-the-line) equipment, and the confidence to describe ourselves as experts makes us the right choice to handle corporate event photography.

Morton Visuals specializes in the capture of key moments. As an expert at blending into the background, we can take pictures discreetly or participate in the festivities to get into the spirit.

Over the last couple of years we are seeing an increased demand for professional headshots at Dallas conferences. We sometimes provide that value-added service even if an organization has their own in-house team covering the documentary photography of the event.

Our Dallas convention photography team has covered both academic and medical conferences. Additionally, we have covered trade shows and organizations as well. Cvent, the global leader in event management, has written an article that explains the differences between conventions, conferences and trade shows.

Event Photography Services

Morton Visuals offers three primary services (and one bonus service) for conferences and conventions:

Documentary Coverage

All major events, breakout sessions, trade shows and exhibits, sponsorship/attendee engagement, speakers and presenters, and more are covered. Our convention photography and conference photography are typically used for social media during the event, as well as for marketing next year’s event. Examples of such images can be found in the slideshow at the top of the page.

Conference Headshots

As a value-added service for attendees, we are often hired to provide professional conference headshots if we are not providing extensive documentary coverage. We have found this to be incredibly popular. We have a new blog article explaining how to offer headshots at your event. (Tip: offer it as an additional promotion opportunity for an event sponsor!)

Video Interviews and Testimonials

With a new service Morton Visuals is offering, we can record short interviews with your organization’s key players. Also, we can capture testimonials from your guests, describing what they like most about your event (and why it’s so valuable to attend). During the closing of your event, these clips can serve as a great highlight reel, but they can also serve as great promotional material for next year’s event as well as providing social media content.

Trade Show Booth Photography

Additionally, we can provide professional exhibit photography to showcase your sponsors and vendors’ (often very expensive) displays as a bonus. Organizers don’t have to pay for that since vendors hire us directly. They just need to let their exhibitors know it’s an option.

In general, conventions are large events with members representing various companies and groups. Trade and business activities are often the main focus. Trade shows and exhibit halls are sometimes part of conventions where sponsors display their latest products and services.

Apart from on-site events, conventions may also include off-site activities that take advantage of a region’s attractions. There are many options for activities after hours. Companies typically invest a large amount to be showcased at a convention.

Attendance numbers are usually easy to calculate, and that number is often inflated by marketing materials from previous years’ events. We ensure the highest level of participation from both sponsors and attendees when you choose Morton Visuals for your Dallas convention photography.

Capturing Speakers on Stage

Conferences and conventions typically feature keynote speakers. The keynotes are typically delivered by an outside speaker to reinforce company or organization values. Organization members are sometimes invited to present parts of the program. Photographs of these speakers should be flattering. Particularly since most event planners spend a great deal of money on those high-paid speakers!

VIPs are prominently pictured in event photos, which is extremely helpful to promote the events (conventions or conferences) that follow.

Whether they are celebrities or top executives, Morton Visuals has always focused on these key people. William’s timing is excellent; he captures every smile and emphatic expression. Photographing convention events from every angle, including backstage, offers a range of images for promotional use as well as social media highlights.

Engagement and Interaction

During the planning process, meeting planners usually have a few primary objectives. Among them are educational and inspirational presentations, engagement, interaction, and promotion. Attendees receive significant benefits as a result.

Trade shows and exhibit halls can be used by sponsors as an opportunity to promote their products or services. Attendees are usually delighted to engage with representatives from show sponsors. This is true regardless of whether the organization is an academic institution or an MLM company. Morton Visuals offers Dallas convention photography that captures the interaction among attendees. For instance, consider this handshake between a vendor and a (potential) customer.

Planning teams love showing sponsors how engaged their attendees were with them!


Dallas Conference Photography

Education and information exchange are typically the focus of conferences. Organizations in the academic, medical, and trade sectors often hold these events. The meetings are usually geared more toward presentations and a bit smaller than conventions. It is possible to plan a variety of activities, like keynote speakers, breakout sessions, networking opportunities, and large general sessions. 

It is common for conference budgets to be smaller, since sponsors are less likely to invest in an event for the chance to market their products. You’re in the right place – with our event photography packages, we can customize pricing for Dallas conference photography that maximizes your ROI.

If you want sponsors and potential attendees to be interested in your event, Dallas conference photography is of great importance. Highlight the experiences, learning, and networking attendees will enjoy at your event.
