This month’s edition of The Treasurer features local Sage Group’s John Swift. Think Publishing in London who manage the design asked me to capture John at the impressive Sage building in Newcastle to assist the copy. The portraits were to reflect a relaxed and professional John with a variety of posed and in a natural working environment for a centre spread and cover option.
The challenge of corporate portraiture is finding good sources of light and making sure that the subject is relaxed. Commercial portraits need show the individual to be approachable and professional and reflecting character can also be a great addition to the image. John was really genuinely jolly and a willing subject which made the shoot run smoothly and enjoyably. The setting offered so much natural light that there were several options for backdrops and a few incorporating the strong Sage branding. Some shoots are tricky but this really was a dream!
