Ok, suppose you radiated photon from Schwarzchild distance R (event horizon for distant observer = EHDO). The photon will start lose its energy, but will still EXIST at any FINITE distance from the event horizon (but due to loss of part of its energy will be red-shifted). Only at INFINITE distance from EHDO it will lose ALL its energy.

Therefore, if we stay still not far from EHDO, say at twice Scw. distance 2R, can capture this photon and measure its energy - and there will be plenty of energy left (you may calculate difference between gravitational potentials at these two points and find it to be finite). So, at this short distance we will be able to see photins originated at shorter than Scw. distance -beyond EHDO, as short as to have infinite difference in gravitational potentials from the point 2R. Thus, for us hanging around 2R, the SMALLER (or deeper) event horizon than at distance R will be seen.
