I recently completed a corporate photoshoot for FCI, one of London’s largest contemporary furniture showrooms. My task was to photograph everyone in this long-standing family owned business, from the Managing Director to interior designers, project managers, accountants, fitters and drivers; captured as individuals and in groups.
It was left up to me to decide where to take the pictures. For the group shots, I set up two Elinchrom studio flash units in a sofa suite area which had a plain background and a modern vibe. For the individual portraits, I took each member of staff either to a spot they liked, or to where I thought it would make a strong image. All the time it was part of my job to make people feel relaxed in front of the camera and to be themselves. The selection shown represents a snapshot of my work which the client really liked.
