Editorial portrait for Rutgers Alumni Magazine

Each issue of the Rutgers alumni magazine features a full page portrait of a school graduate.         While the photo is shot on location it must feature a simple background since the photo runs full bleed across the page type is placed  somewhere within the photo. 

We needed to include a hint of the dorm building where the subject lived in the photo. I was able to find a location where the leading lines of the sidewalk intersected and there was a nice backlight that helped separate him from the background.  Add a Profoto B1 with a stripbank and we were all set.

Corporate portraits for Fordham University

I recently had the opportunity to photograph a series of portraits for a Fordham University fundraising campaign. We photographed a number of students and alumni. This photo session took place on campus and in the nearby Columbus Circle and Central Park. 

While the school highlighted a variety of people in the marketing campaign we tried to make each portrait look similar by using shallow depth of field and using a narrow stripbox for lighting.
