Photographing in the Canopy at the Festival of Plants for the Cambridge University Botanic Garden
Recent commission for HCA Healthcare. Photograph taken of London Bridge Hospital riverside facade with River Thames at high tide, dusk lighting, clear skies and a deadline within 7 days. This was probably a once a month occurrence and it was pure luck and constant weather watching which enabled all the elements to come together as well they did. After checking with the Port of London Authority for tide times at the correct location, I could see which dates would have high tide during the twilight golden hour. I just needed good weather. This was taken on the only day of good of weather during the only window of opportunity I had to complete the work on time and within the deadline date.
Simple corporate headshot diagram. The is a typical lighting set up I use when space is limited and I need to travel with minimal equipment. The back light usually a lastolite umbrella softbox allows for the choice of either a rim highlight with lighting on the background as well or just a rim light if the umbrella is swivelled 180 degrees and feathered away from the subject and background.
Looking back over some of the wonderful highlights from 2012, the many varied people and locations all of which made the year a fun and creative experience.
