Corporate Portraits & Headshots – City of London

I was fortunate enough to have access to the General Committee Room at Lloyds Register in London recently, one of the grandest rooms I’ve worked in. The brief was to photograph a variety of environmental corporate portraits showing off the surroundings.

I spent a fair amount of time prepping the room (there were A LOT of chairs to straighten!) and setting up the lighting so that both the subject and the room were well lit. For the photographers out there interested in the set-up, I used two portable flash units (Calumet Genesis 400) with modifiers to light the subject. I used an Elinchrom Rotalux Deep Octa Softbox for the main light and a gridded strip softbox for rim light. A further three speedlites were used to light the room.

As well as the General Committee Room, I couldn’t resist taking a portrait in the hallway outside with its ornate furnishings. I mixed window light with two portable flash units for this one.

A number of headshots were also needed, so we moved to a more modern part of the building for these. A plain, neutral wall was used as the backdrop, keeping the portraits clean and contemporary.

To finish, we had a bit of fun with the imposing doorway.

If you’re interested in seeing the building for yourself, Lloyds Register will be taking part in Open House 2015 in September.
