This is a really big event in the rural community which over the years has involved hundreds of farmers and their staff. My role is to photograph every guest during the social hour and every important happening thereafter. Special attention is given to promoting the sponsors. As soon as the night is officially over, photographs of the winners are supplied immediately for use in publicity and press releases, with the full set being supplied the next day.
“The Ballance Farm Environment Awards recognise and celebrate good farm practices which promote sustainable land management… We believe that positive role models and opportunities for learning are the most effective tools to improving farm practices.”
“Duncan Brown has been official photographer at the five awards dinners we have held in Napier. We requested both relaxed pre-dinner drinks photos, on-stage action and posed shots with sponsors in a more formal setting – all have been delivered, as arranged and in a timely fashion. Duncan is easy to communicate with and obliging with our requests. He is a jovial and patient photographer who is a pleasure to deal with.”
