Yesterday I spent a few hours going through my archive, locating images for a new portfolio of photographs getting put together by my agents, and I was trawling around in folders, looking for portraits, looking for some corporate portraits in particular, and I found the above image.
Shot on assignment in Tokyo, Japan, when I was based there, it was a picture for a UK design agency, and the end client was an international corporate law firm. The brief was to produce a natural, clean, relaxed portrait, showing a little of the environment or office in the background. It was an easy enough shoot, the young lady was generous with her time and charm, making my life and my photo shooting easy. I shot the portraits in a variety of locations, around the offices, and building, located in Roppongi in the heart of the city, and some shots in the gardens there also, but today this is the one I like.
I post it here just as an example of a found image from the archive, a nice, relaxed corporate portrait. Happy client, happy subject, happy photographer. And I’ve added it today also to my (Scotland-based photographer’s) portfolio of corporate photographs and portraits. I hope you can take a look, and if you have any questions please feel free to get in touch by email.
