Canterbury Christ Church University are based in the heart of the City Centre, just a short walk to the precincts of the Cathedral. The brief for today was to capture a mixture of students for future publications, these will be marketing material in printed and digital form. As well as capturing the excitement of the day from the students and their families it was also important to capture some behind the scenes photos, these were taken off the cuff and throughout the day we came across plenty of students who were more then willing to be involved in the photography.

I had Grant and Matt on hand from the production team at the University as we needed to have signed model release forms from everybody photographed, this was due to the fact that the photos will be used on various advertising media. As it was a dull day I used the Profoto A1 on camera to light all of the subjects, with the dome fitted on to the round light it creates a soft and natural light.
