Holiday Party Photography at Stanford University

Every year caterers caters many Holiday parties for different departments at Stanford University.  We do not cover all of the events for them but when they feel they will need some new photos for their web site or portfolio they will ask me to come and photograph the set up, food, and general ambiance of the event…. 

This event was for the Stanford Institute for Economic Policy Research (SIEPR).  There are so many Institutes at Stanford and I am always amazed at what issues and policies are discussed so close to us. This holiday party was for SIEPR faculty, staff, researchers and their families.  It was on a Friday evening after work so it was a bit more casual than some other events. The building was decorated with a festive holiday tree and beautifully presented holiday buffet. 

I captured the evening using mostly available light to pick up all the details of the decorations and to give the room some depth of field so that the photographs will not come out flat looking. 

When documenting an event like a holiday party you have to show the personality of the event. Yes, the holiday decorations are definitely part of that. The dinner room with green table clothes and red flowers definitely show the holiday atmosphere but this party was on a college campus. The backpacks thrown in the corner of the room absolutely shows a part of the personality of the event.

We will be present at other holiday parties for Stanford this year it will be interesting to see what the personality of the different events will be.
