The Pirate Summit always holds a special place in my heart, as I see it as the official kick off to the tech conference season. Perfectly timed, Till and Manuel manage to curate an event that sees just about every attendee in a great mood, having just come back from summer holidays and ready to attack the busy season.

This year was no different, with the always quirky Odonien serving as the backdrop for two days of arrrrrsomeness. Old friendships are revived, new ones are formed, and a healthy round of startup pitches and information and advise is shared amongst colleagues.

And the annual highlight, the burning of the man. This is always one o my most rewarding (and stressful) shots, as it’s visually stunning, but I also have a very short amount of time to get “The” shot. This year, the position of the man was moved, this time butting up against a wall. This created a small problem for me, as it was near impossible to get the man AND the crowd in one shot.

I worked a bit of magic, and spent 30 minutes running like crazy to try and get the right angle. Thankfully, there was a platform off to the right of the man that I got up onto and was able to position the burn in the far right, whilst using the ambient light to illuminate the crowd. This required a bit of selective area enhancements in post, and the overall image captures the scene perfectly.

All in all, a great way to kick off the 2015/2016 tech conference season, and I tip my hat to Manuel, Till, and the entire Pirate Summit team!

If you’d like to book me for your event, please get in touch, and let’s have a chat.

Enjoy, and until the next shoot – Dan
