Hold on. Size of event horizon (EH)IS different for different observers. For infinite observer it is 2M, but when you come closer some part of gravitational field of black hole (BH) is outside you and thus you'll see smaller than 2M horizon.

Imagine, for example, the following. You see no photons from under EH, because they lose their energy (color) as they claim from gravitational well. They become more and more red but still visible as they ascend. Only at infinity they finally lose it all and become invisible. So, if you come closer, you will see them but being reddish. Thus, you will see photons originated slightly beyond (under) EH - to the new distance from which gravitational red shift is infinite. Thus, you will see SMALLER event horizon from the vicinity to BH than from the infinity. And the closer you come, the deeper into BH the visible EH goes.
