As the financial year in the UK draws to a close I have been traveling around photographing corporate portraits of board members for their upcoming annual reports and press releases. These two images were taken for a leading global services company with headquarters in Germany. The two images are from the same shoot, albeit lit and processed differently, thus giving a distinctive and separate look. The images were taken of the board members on site in their offices before their AGM.
I had limited time with each member of the board, but still had the luxury of tweaking lighting and producing a couple of options for the client to choose from, giving them more scope and uses of the images in future. It can be very daunting for some to have their portrait taken, especially moments before entering a large and important company meeting. I pride myself on working quickly whilst maintaining a relaxed and professional rapport with board members, helping put them at ease during their portrait sitting.
