These photos were taken at the Free Food Tasting & Networking event hosted by the United Small Business Alliance and Small Business EXPO at El Pollo Inka in Rolling Hills Estates on Wednesday afternoon.
The event featured a few samples of El Pollo Inka’s Peruvian foods and an opportunity to network with other small business owners. I arrived a little late so the food was a little sparse, but as you can tell by the photos, there was plenty of networking being done.

At Friends POV we got our introduction to event photography by photographing trade shows and their related networking events; whether it is a large party of several thousand or a more intimate venue such as a hotel suite party. Photos are a great way to memorialize your event and Friends POV knows how to take the shots that will remind the attendee of something that happened or a person they met while they were there; and they will make the person that could not attend, feel like they were there.
Friends POV will photograph your networking event and host them for you so everyone has easy access to them. Branding opportunities with your logo on the photos is a great marketing tool that we have personally used for more than 10 years.
