Executive Portrait Photography
“I GOT SHOT AT THE RECORDING STUDIO”
A great example of an Executive Portrait, business looking and stylish, very GQ Magazine!
How did I help?
Sunny wanted a beautiful stylised Executive Portrait for his business, one that really did show he was casual but meant business. I asked if he knew of the style of GQ Magazine shoots and if that was what he was after, and this was exactly what he had in mind. The results looked great and took very little time to achieve!
About this Photoshoot.
This photo was one of about 15 photographs taken at a recording studio (Denmark Recording Studios). The studio has this great old dark red leather sofa and patterned wallpaper which gave some old fashioned character to the room. I made sure Sunnys shirt, tie, cuffs and jacket were looking good and that his expensive watch was clearly visible to give that classy executive business look to the shoot, the results really were superb.
The Lighting Setup.
I set up a 3 point light system, the main source light was a large beauty dish on a boom stand directly overhanging my camera. Sunny was impressed at the variation I achieved from the previous business headshots with such little change to the lighting arrangement.
