Inspiration, development and behind the scenes.
The inspiration for this shoot came from how people of influence are often shot for high ranking magazines such as Time and Variety. Portraits in monochrome, I felt would give mood and depth to a portrait and capture the personality of the innovator. Added interesting angles that would have subject look "pass" the camera into the middle distance to avoid the "passport photo" look.
I selected the photographer, the style and directed the shoot on the day.
