On a very busy morning after the concluding election results, I was commissioned to photograph Tina Fordham, MD and Chief Global Political Analyst at Citigroup. Editorial business portrait for a finance interview. Half expecting the appointment to be cancelled. Considering Tina had been up all night watching the results come in. Quite amazingly time was found for the interview and photography before Tina prepared for a key note speech she was making later in the day.
Editorial business portrait on wet and windy day in London
Even more surprising was enthusiasm towards my request for an outside shot on a wet and windy morning to get a London setting. Luckily there was overhead cover outside the office entrance. Keeping the rain of Tina’s wonderful outfit. I’m very used to dealing with high profile business people. Knowing that they are short of time. You need to work fast, orchestrate the type of shot you need immediately. Especially on election day.
On this occasion the session produced a number of great shots. The editorial I was shooting for chose a fantastic shot of Tina walking towards me, brushing her hair back as she looks powerfully into the camera lens., with the London finance district of Canary Wharf in the background.
