I shoot many executive portraits every year. As a corporate photographer they are my top request.
Making people look their best is very important to me in my work.
Creatively, an environmental portrait using elements of my clients surroundings is what I hope for.
This gentleman has on office in a historical building. The exposed brick inspired me to choose this area for his portrait.
I gelled the brick wall with a gold color to add warmth and lit him with two shoot through umbrellas.
The main light was camera right and the fill was camera left high and to the rear a bit.
I used Nikon SB-800's all around. Camera was a Nikon D3 equipped with an Nikon 85mm 1.4 shot at f6.3
