UK Rail Industry Awards
A couple of weeks ago my colleague David Prior and I photographed the UK Rail Industry Awards at the amazing Battersea Evolution venue in south London. We covered the whole event from guests arriving until the dancing after the awards dinner.
The keynote speaker was Sir Peter Hendy, Chairman of Network Rail, and the evening was hosted by actor and comedian Stephen Mangan.
Awards events like this can present challenges for a photographer – not only do they take place indoors at night but often the venue is a mix of low light areas and very bright stage lighting. So a big part of our job at this kind of event is to mix available light and camera flash creatively to document the event without being too intrusive. Hopefully we managed to do that this time!
Here’s a selection of my favourite images from the event. Everyone had a great time, some deserving winners received awards, and I’m looking forward to next year.
