Canterbury Christ Church University hold an annual garden party in the Summer for all of their staff, it is an opportunity for everyone to mingle and enjoy the sunshine. Today I had been commissioned to cover the event along with some portraits for the Universities faculty of Education...
Corporate portraits can be a mix of head shots against a plan backdrop or on location, this time I had two set ups. Over twenty staff members of the faculty of education which were taken during the Summer garden party and portraits of two new staff to the Senior Management team at Christ Church University, these were taken inside but were lit by plenty of natural window light. With all of the portraits I used the 24-70mm 2.8 lens and lighting was aided by a reflector, silver side up to lift the shadows on the subjects and to add a nice soft light.

The corporate portraits taken for the University will be used online and also for brochures and forthcoming press releases, it was important to make everyone friendly and inviting plus the mix of peoples outfits added a nice dash of colour to the overall images.
