Great Landscapes and Fantastic Portraits...Souvenir D'un Futur

I have only just recently been made aware of this Photographic Project by Laurent Kronenthal, I think it’s a most wonderful set of images that document a past vision of future living and the people that presently populate this future-past environment. The portraits are sublime and act as the memory within this ‘new-world’, their stature dwarfed by the architectural ideology of what the future was to behold.

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!

Lovely Family Photography Portrait Session In Perivale, London

Over the weekend we shot some family portrait photographs in Perivale, London. As a Photographer it’s always a good idea to show up a little earlier to scope out aesthetic backgrounds for the Photography, the wild flower garden turned out to be the perfect location for the shots.

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.

Great Location for a Portrait Photoshoot

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!

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!
