Corporate finance company Catalyst have employed me a few times in the past, for the odd portrait. But this time it was to photograph all their team for their new website. Each person was to be photographed individually, plus a couple of group shots, including the one above which is to have links to each person when rolled over on the website. Shots were taken at their Birmingham head office and their smaller office near Victoria.
Another new client, another happy customer: "Thanks for the photos. I just wanted to say how pleased I am with the shots. They are excellent and just what I wanted. I look forward to working with you again." Well being the marketing manager at a Corporate Finance company is never going to be an easy job, all you want from a photographer is good images to go with press releases or news stories. I always strive to show people as modern, approachable, professional, and if time allows to have some different, interesting portraits which will help to have stories published. I've been doing these sorts of corporate portraits for a while, Portfolio is here.
Just published is this portrait of Irvin Seller, never heard of him, neither had I, but you've heard of his most famous development, The Shard. This portrait was for American magazine Worth. We all would have liked to do the shoot at the building, but due to diary commitments ( his, not mine ) a trip up the sky scraper wasn't possible, so the portraits were shot in his West London office. I don't do that many editorial portraits, but they are always enjoyable. Thanks go to Mr Seller for giving me the time to set up a few lights and take a variety of images to give the designer of the magazine a choice. More of my portraits are here.
