A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of working for a marketing company in Cambridge, who required a series of staff shots at Bradshaws in the city centre.
One of the great things about working on location with studio lighting, is that you never really know what you are going to find.. Arriving at one of their offices I was immediately conscious of the limited room I had available. The client wanted a series of corporate head shots, which I duly supplied, setting up in a tiny corner, just about fitting my Bowens lighting in, and shooting while laying on a table, with the lighting almost on top of me.
Once the standard head shots were done, I shot a few more informal and friendly images in their office, again, lighting and space was very tight, so I ended up shooting with a couple of Nikon flashes working off remotes, which provided a nice soft light and hit the Bradshaws lettering in the background.
When it came to the group shot, all offices came together and although something relatively conservative was required, we made our way to the Varsity Hotel in Cambridge, to utilise their wonderful rooftop. Unfortunately, as is often the case, by the time everyone arrived the light had fallen and I had minutes to grab the images on the dull and autumn day. Thankfully just managing to bag it.
