On Friday September 2, 2011 I was commissioned to photograph a portrait of an architect for the Wellington City Council Annual Report. The image was for the the Urban Development section. The image was art directed – with a brief for the image to have the Meridian Building behind. I managed to scout the location on the day – and settle on 2 main vantages. The first was close up to the building, actually inside the foyer. The second was out in the front court yard.
It was a fun shoot. My model Carlos was super easy going. He is originally from Chile – and studied here in NZ and has lived her for over 20yrs. I just used a simple one light setup and balanced that with the sun to get a balanced look.
