Thank you to the lovely staff at The Raj Hotel in Victoria today for sorting out an outside space for us to shoot some portraits of the Management Team of Dimension Data at such short notice. We got some lovely ambient light shots in the hotel courtyard when it was decided that the room we were to shoot the portraits in was too small.
At the Ritz Hotel, London, with my new chum Yuri, celebrating his 30th wedding anniversary with his beautiful wife Natalie. The Ritz kindly allowed us to make an impromptu shoot on the main lobby staircase and for the time pressure we had we thought we captured some really natural portraits!
Editorial Photoshoot in the heart of The CityRead More
Headshots taken at Keningtons Chartered Surveyors using my new Grey Lastolite collapsible background...first thoughts on this background is the convenience, but slightly surprised at the moire pattern I encountered from it. Not much of a retouch but a shock nonetheless from an expensive piece of photographic kit!
Headshots taken at the Brook Surgery at Golders Green, commissioned in order to publicise their relocation to new offices. Lesson learned: always check your bag before the photoshoot for compact flash cards as I left mine behind at the studio and had to shoot on a 1 gig card, JPGS and not Raw, to my horror I found that no one sells CF cards on the high street anymore!
The brief is to photograph the subject, Ian Mitchell, looking comfortable and relaxed. The feature is a personal profile and in that sense the images should capture the subject’s personality and reflect their approach to work. Ian has become the new chair of the CQI at an exciting and challenging time for the profession so we would like to show his positive energy and appetite for the opportunities ahead. Some shots should capture a smile, others should show him looking more contemplative or reflective. He could either be sitting or standing but the image must include head, shoulders and part of the upper body. It should also include a full body shot.Read More
