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!
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!
The brief is to photograph the subject, Ian Mitchell, looking comfortable and relaxed.

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
