Being a Portrait Photographer in London...

…one gets to see all manner of building interiors . Today I was at the International Maritime Organisation, London, to take a Portrait of Tatjana Krilic for a CQI Editorial. I have walked past this building on Albert Embankment many a time, it’s the one with a seven metre high Bronze Bow of a ship protruding from the entrance of the building, it’s known as The Seafarers Memorial, however, I have never been inside. As you can imagine its interior holds many references to ships and general maritime fare. One thing that caught my eye on my reccy for suitable backgrounds to Photograph against was this huge lighthouse optic from Orfordness Lighthouse. It was decommissioned in 2014 having been in service for 99 year, and what a beauty she was, and fantastic to ping a light through to produce an interesting Portrait.

Sigma fp Mirrorless Compact Full Frame Camera

I think it may be time to enter the Mirrorless Camera Market, I like Sigma as a brand, their Art Lenses are fantastic, I own the 85mm 1.4 and I must say its one of my favourite lenses for portraiture. The Sigma fp seems to follow their ethos for attemtion to detail, and the video capabilities of this camera puts it at the topof my shopping list!

Case Study Video shot for Bouygeus UK and FIS at a Central London Location

Here is the final edit of a video we shot for Bouygeus UK and FIS. The case study involved a series of interviews with Bouygeus UK site managers who were asked to outline why they had chosen FIS as a supplier and partner in this development in Central London. Along with the video we also photographed a number of employee portraits, as well as product detailing.

Editorial Portraiture Session at the CQI HQ in London

I met the lovely Dr Margaret Rooney at the CQI photo studio in London today in order to take her photograph for an editorial piece for Quality World Magazine. I was able to use my Godox 600 Pro light for the first time as the main light source and I must say it coped very well during the portrait session, producing consistent colour balance in all of the edited portraits.

Corporate Portraiture Photography in the Heart of London

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.

Gartner Ltd Photo-Challenge...

On a photo assignment at Gartner Ltd, Egham, today, my task to photograph 118 corporate portraits in a 40 minute lunch break. A quite liberating photoshoot in that one had to ditch the niceties and get down to business, reminded me of my old portrait studio days at Covershots International!

Photoshoot for the CQI magazine at Bombardier train factory, Derby, today...

Interesting industrial environment to photograph in today for a magazine editorial…pity that all but one of the factory workforce was on holiday! Luckily I had my management team to sit for their portraits in the factory location.

Corporate Portraiture at Keningtons Chartered Surveyors

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!
