Finding a location at the Alder planetarium for this portrait of Rubina Isaac for The New York Times was harder than you would think. I needed something that would obviously say planetarium, so I came up with these two images.
Earlier this month I created this executive portrait for my client Hyatt Hotels Corporation featuring their new Group President – ASPAC.
One of my favorite techniques is to use CTO filters (plastic gels that make neutral light look like old fashioned light bulbs) on my lights so that when I tell the camera to compensate for their warmth, the camera makes the rest of the world look blue.
The New York Times published a story this morning, which included one of my photos, about mutual fund managers. I also shot this image on the same assignment. I was blown away at the opulence of their offices, located just off of Chicago’s Magnificent mile in a 100-plus year old antique filled mansion. I knew right away when I saw the French room that this is where I had to shoot their portrait.
