Simon Burgess is head of www.sugarsnap.tv, a digital video production company based in Marlow and today he commissioned me to shoot some images of himself for his new website. Simon shoots and produces some superb commercial video work and it was a little daunting being given creative control over his portrait session.
The brief was for a relaxed, approachable look enhanced with some careful lighting to provide a selection of portraits for the new site. We met at the River and Rowing Museum in Henley, chosen as it provided an interesting but not overpowering backdrop for the images.
Typically I would be shooting this kind of image at a wedding so it was cool to photograph someone who hasn’t got to face the vicar in 10 minutes and great to have more than 90 seconds (on a good day) to take the pictures :)
Here’s a few favourite from the shoot.
