Corporate photography hunts get team members out and about, travelling around their host city and seeing famous landmarks while facing numerous photographic challenges. Team up and get tips from our professional photographer before you venture outside to explore.
Explore surroundings through a series of photographs, and develop photographic skills. Although similar to our treasure hunts and scavenger hunts this event is focused around and all about photography.
Our photo Hunt starts by giving each team a series of high-quality photographs taken at different locations around the city. Participants are then required to find these locations with the aid of a map and use the local transportation to get there. They then attempt to replicate that image by judging perspectives and camera positions etc.
Photography Hunt Challenge Locations
Locations could range from, temples, shopping centres, palaces, museums, parks to a local pub! Using the photographs as clues and support from the locals, team members will need to work together to identify the nearby locations. See our top 3 destinations in Thailand and why we would recommend Marina Bay, Singapore for this event.
Candid Camera Street Photography Challenge
An alternate concept to this fun photography event is our Street Photography Challenge. Teams make their way to the designated locations and take photographs based around street photography! You are also given a set of clues to guide you into developing an awesome portfolio of images.
Print Your Images
After all the images have been taken or replicated, you need to find a local shop to get your images developed. On completion teams will need to race back to the starting point where a team of photographers will judge and award points for the best photos. Depending on your location and budget we could set this up in house and print the images upon your return.
Photo Hunt Team Building Prizes and Awards
Depending on your budget the awards could range from a trophy to a digital camera! Everyone gets to take home the images they shot throughout the day.
But I Don’t Have a Camera for the Photo Hunt!
Most people today have some form of camera which you could set up with our guidance before booking the event. You can even use your mobile phones as today, they can capture amazing photos.
Mobile Photography Tips and Tricks
With a few simple tricks you would be surprised what stunning photos you could get. To avoid smudges and blurs always make sure the lens is clean. Ensure your subject is in focus by checking the focus point.
Adjust the exposure for brightness, compose, and then take your shot! If you’re shooting with an iPhone take advantage of the HDR setting to create evenly lit photos. HDR stands for High Dynamic Range which allows you to capture detail in the highlights and the shadows. If your taking portraits take advantage of the portrait mode to blur the background behind your subjects.
For action shots use the ‘Activate Burst Mode’. Ideal for images where your subject is moving fast. Your iPhone will take around ten photos per second while you hold down the shutter button.

Learn How to Take a Candid Photo
What is candid photography? A candid photograph is an image captured without the subject posing. It’s an unplanned moment from the subject’s perspective. To be truly inconspicuous shoot from the hip. Not only does this give you a new perspective, but you also won’t need to worry about being seen.
Ask people to pretend they’re not there or engage them in conversation. When you get a person to start talking, they soon forget about the camera.
Become more observant and look for expressions that capture the character. Make conversation and see what expressions they use when you talk about something that interests them.
Shoot with a small camera to become more inconspicuous! People won’t feel so threatened as perhaps they would, with a giant telephoto lens pointed them.
Street Photography Tips for this Event
Use a wide-angle lens so you can still capture your subjects without necessarily pointing your camera directly at them. With a wide-angle lens, you’re pretty sure to get your subject in the shot.
When shooting people you don’t know – Smile! This will enable people to become more relaxed and then you don’t need to worry so much about what they think. Even better if you’re unsure ask for permission. If someone looks interesting, tell them and ask for a portrait. Most people will say yes.
Show respect and don’t take photos of homeless people unless it’s to convey an awareness of a homeless person’s situation. Taking a shot for the sake of taking their photo isn’t respectful.

Best Cameras for Street Photography
Just about any camera can be used to create awesome street photography including old cameras from the film era. The best camera is the one that works to your photographic style and gets that shot. What one person considers as the best camera may not be for you. You don’t need large DSLRs with a telephoto lens!
Street Photography Laws and our Photo Hunts
As a general rule it is legal to shoot in a public place and you not need a model release or expressed consent. However, use some common sense. If a person requires privacy, or parental or guardian doesn’t consent to photograph their children, respect their wishes and move on.
If you’re in a shopping centre, hospital, or amusement park etc which is open to the public, it doesn’t make it public property for you to shoot in. If security guards ask you to stop shooting then stop.
