Much of my work is producing portraits (headshots) of those in the field of entertainment. They may be actors, directors, voice over artists, producers and even film critics.
Often these "shoots" are scheduled on a production day i.e. before a show or between press interviews, more often or not the first part of the task is to find a location in the venue where we can create what we need (this is not always easy). After finding the location I need to set up a couple of lights, maybe a pop-up backdrop, we might even want a prop or two.
A key fact is though (and this is always the case), no matter how well scheduled the day, if the photography is planned on a show or press day, time will be short, interviews will overrun, technical problems will occur. And this is where you need a good (relaxed) but quick photographer, one that will not panic, one that can produce the required shot(s) in the minimum of time (usually whilst the subject is taking a coffee break ;-) )
Take a look below. Which were produced on location and which in a full time studio?
The bottom line - the right photographer will be able to produce no matter the location and given a few minutes.
Why not drop me a line (see contact), to see how a creative professional portrait could create the right image of you for your clients.
