Rocking the Boat in Bermuda

The 35th Americas Cup is set to start on May 26th 2017.  The oldest trophy in the sporting world featuring the greatest sailors and the incredible Americas Cup Class boats.

Elite Image will be there for semi finals in early June as a corporate event photographer. Once again we’ll be teaming up with Atlas Events on a corporate event programme for our good friends at Microsoft.

After successful corporate event photography assignments with Microsoft at The Kentucky Derby 2016 and Super Bowl 2015.  The Americas Cup is now added to the list of iconic American sports events we’ve covered.

It will be more than just what’s happening on the water though. There will also be plenty of activities, events and dinners onshore once the action on the water stops.

Elite Image will be providing the a corporate event photography package that has been so successful previously for this client.  This includes a customised online photo gallery with constantly edited and updated images.  Clients can view, download and share images almost as they happen.

We’ll also have photos slideshows running in the corporate hospitality areas. Post event, we’ll be producing a bespoke coffee table photo book as a lasting memento for all involved.  More of our proven corporate event photography formulas.

As a New Zealander and keen sports watcher this corporate event will have a special edge. Emirates Team New Zealand will be there competing hoping their latest piece of sailing innovation proves the difference for them to take the prize.

Auckland, NZ, was the home of the Americas Cup from 1997-2003 and hosted two regattas in 2000 and 2004.  Elite Image was there during those memorable summers.  The mono hull yachts were different but the stakes just as high.

This is a gallery of some of our favourite shots from those halcyon days.
