US Event Photos Media: Blog, Podcasts & Industry Updates

Welcome to US Event Photos Media!  Some background and context.  We’ve always been photographers — first journalists, then green screen, and finally experiential.  Within those categories, we’ve thrived: headshot photo booths, conventions and events nationwide, and experiential photo marketing booths.  But when COVID-19 slammed into us, we decided to start something new.  A podcast.  Not your typical corporate podcast talking about esoteric parts of our business, but one that captured something we stumbled on by accident:  the creative forces in our Baltimore neighborhood.  The artists, entrepreneurs and activists that make our home, home.  Then we continued to notice, and because we were stuck home during COVID, we tackled other topics.  We began livestreaming.  We started asking questions about our own LGBTQIA community.    With that passion to capture a story, to explore people and subjects that aren’t receiving attention on other platforms, we launched US Event Photos Media, the Patterson Park Podcast and our LGBTQIA Original Media.  It’s a passion project.  It’s not to build revenue streams, or to trumpet how great we are as photographers.  Instead, it’s meant to accomplish three things: in our podcast, to learn about creativity and discover what it means to be LGBTQIA+ today.  And, our industry news series, to track how COVID is effecting the event industry.  Our blog tells the story of how our business began, and is a behind the scenes look at life as an event photographer; it is both funny and heartfelt.
