Corporate portrait in Newark

When photographing busy executives is best to have a game plan that allows you capture a variety of dynamic corporate portraits in a short amount of time. For this photo shoot the lobby of the Rutgers Business School was an ideal location. Gary Cohen, who is donating a million dollars to the school, walked into the lobby and 15 minutes later we were done and he was on his way to his next meeting.

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.
