South Florida Event Photography

Ivan Apfel is a Corporate Event Photographer covering Conferences, Non-Profit Galas, Red Carpets, Grand Openings, and Premieres in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Palm Beach.

Covering All South Florida Corporate Event Photography Services As Well As:

Conference Photography

From smaller peer-to-peer conferences to larger multi-national trade conferences, having high quality photographs of the speakers, sponsor tables and social events is an effective way to increase future events success.  These images can be provided to attendees to then be shared on their social media. Images of the speakers can be used to attract future speakers and attendees, and images of sponsors interacting with attendees will assist in maintaining current sponsors and attracting future ones.

Internal Event Photography

We provide full event coverages for any type of internal company events. This includes employee appreciation events, symposiums, company retreats and more. Whether you are celebrating a great year, showing your staff how much they mean to the company, or building a strong sense of teamship, it is important to document these moments in the company's history.

Grand Opening and Product Launch Photography

Whether it be your first location or a new product, your grand opening or launch party is a major moment for your company. Having professional photography of this event allows you to preserve the history of this moment as well as have incredible images to promote on your website and social media platforms. In addition to standard coverage, we can also work with you or your marketing/PR team  to create same day quick edits to get out to press or social media immediately.

Gala and Award Show Photography

Galas and award shows are the highlight event for organizations raising funds for charity as well as recognizing those that have made major impacts that year. Professional photography is a wonderful tool to capture the details and moments of these events. The images can be used to promote the following years gala in addition to assisting in obtaining future sponsorship.

Red Carpet and Premiere Photography

South Florida has become a major hotbed for major film, television premieres as well as media award shows. Ivan Apfel Photography has become one of the most recognized names and faces on South Florida Red Carpets proving both in-house photographer services as well as direct booking Getty Images coverage. Our red carpet and premiere images are regularly published in Variety, Rolling Stone, Hollywood Reporter, Vogue and other major national and international industry publications.

Fashion Show and Runway Photography

No matter if you are producing a fashion show or one of the designers presenting your newest line, fashion shows are a major event. We provide full show coverage. From model casting, rehearsals, back of house during the shows, the runway, through the afterparty, we can capture it all.  Our fashion show images have appeared in  major news media, industry magazines and dozens of designers marketing campaigns.

From internal corporate retreats to conventions, trade shows, and award shows, South Florida is an amazing place to host events. Wonderful weather, amazing food, the beaches, the ocean, the nightlife, and the shopping all make it the one destination that attendees from around the world are excited to travel to for an event.

The photographs captured from your event not only act to document the event itself but are also used to market and promote the event. The best way to attract future attendees, speakers, and sponsors is to promote future events using high-quality, professional, and creative images of your current event. Bringing more than 30 years of event photography experience, I will work with your team to get the shots you need within the turnaround time needed to best promote your event.

With roots in documentary photography, my base instinct is to be as unnoticeable as possible. My goal is to capture the moments of your meeting, conferences, or conventions without ever becoming a distraction. My storytelling style captures images of your event in a way that allows the viewers to feel as though they were attendees as well. For this reason, I tend to only use flash for social action events, as well as posed images of the presenter and speaker after they finish their engagement.

Stefanie Ramirez, Senior Director of Events - NBCUniversal Telemundo Enterprises

“Ivan Apfel is by far one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. I have worked in the entertainment business since 2003 and we have been working with Ivan since 2015. I hold Ivan as one of the top photographers I have ever worked with. On a corporate level, Ivan is professional, one step ahead of the game, always around but never in the way, his angles and shots are above all the rest I’ve seen, and he’s a wonderful person who makes it easy and comfortable to work with.”

Morgan Schaaf, Communications Manager - Topgolf

“Working with Ivan has been great! The photo quality is amazing and he is always very professional. I highly recommend his services!”

Ashley Davidson, Senior Director, Media & Industry Relations, Fish Consulting

“Event planning has countless moving pieces and Ivan is one of those pieces I never have to worry about. He’s the best photographer I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He has the ability to take limited direction and run with it to create stunning photos that capture the moments perfectly. He captures even the smallest, yet very important, details – things I never had time to stop and observe during a busy grand opening of a restaurant. And somehow he manages to do it all within the natural flow of the event, without interrupting a thing. I barely notice he’s there! That takes immense talent and professionalism.”

Jennifer Million, Senior Communications Director - United Way Miami

“Extremely professional with excellent customer service. Always delivers in a timely and successful manor. Thank you!”

Marie-Laure Andrade, Director - Christian Dior

“The pictures are amazing! Ivan did a great job and he was actually quick to edit them. Thank you!”
