Commercial portrait photographer: Press shots for Redrow Homes
The thing I enjoy about being a commercial portrait photographer is the fact that I get shoot both location portraits as well as studio portraits. Working on location to create press shots for companies and individuals is always a challenge that I enjoy as it forces me to think quickly and creatively. Active PR recently commissioned me for another shoot for Redrow Homes, in fact, they tried to commission me a few weeks ago but I was unable to do the shoot as I was in France. When this happens it’s always a worry as it means they have to use another photographer and often then, agencies just go with whomever they last used. However, they were really pleased with my last set of images I shot for Redrow over at South Milford and sent me a nice thank you note and, kindly, have come back to me for this PR job. It’s very satisfying when I know the client was pleased with my work.
The brief this time was to photograph three key staff at the Horsforth Vale site to illustrate an article on how the project has created a lot of jobs in the area. I chose to stand the three guys infront of scaffolding with other workers in the background to illustrate that there are many tradesmen on site. I also shot the three without people in the background, plus I did individual location portraits. The ambient was really soft and allowed me to hit the subject with a small burst of OCF to lift the shadows and punch the colours and I used 24mm to 200mm to get some differnt effects on the portrait shots.
