Professional Photography Portraits Manchester…

Photographic projects come in all shapes and sizes. So when I was contacted by the client Marketing Manchester to cover the four day Euro Science Open Forum event known as ‘ESOF’, my ears perked up because it has over 4000 delegates from over 80 countries attending. I just knew that it would be full of interesting faces!

The challenge…

To create an onsite portrait studio, that after a fast and furious few minutes would produce a professional commercial portrait with a large dollop of personality whilst maintaining an air of dignity.The images could then be used for full size prints, future commercial projects and back of a book jackets!

Sign of the times…

A sign was created by the client for them to hold stating “Science as Revolution” For most people the last thing they want is to be in front of the camera anymore than they have to, but to my surprise as soon as I gave them a sign to hold (and hide behind) all inhibitions seem to evaporate. In fact it acted as a real confidence boost as shown by the very formal Japanese scientists who arrived as a team and explained that they were a little embarrassed to have a ‘relaxed’ portrait taken. It shows…!
