Sometimes it’s fun to see how many different photos you can get without the subject moving.
This portrait of a New Jersey doctor is a good example.
I had the opportunity to photograph divorce attorney Vikki Ziegler in her Livingston office. Ziegler is the subject of Bravo’s new reality show “Untying the Knot”.
Dennis Bone recently retired as CEO of Verizon New Jersey but has not stayed retired for long. He now runs the Center for Entrepreneurship at Montclair State University.
I’ve had the opportunity to photograph Mr. Bone while he served as CEO of Verizon so this shoot was very relaxed.
One of the photos is lit with strobes while the other is more of an available light lifestyle type of photo.
Sometimes it works out well when the subject of a corporate portrait is running late.
Here Michael, an attorney at McCarter and English, was stuck in traffic but that gave me time to plan each setup. I was able to have three separate portrait locations already lit when Michael arrived.
For this photo I used one gridded strobe to illuminate Michael with a small cone of light.
You usually don’t get much time with high profile subjects so it’s important to have a plan and use every second.
For this photo shoot of Senator Cory Booker I set up two totally different lighting looks and could switch between them directly from the camera. I like the dramatic shot but the other shot works well too. Lots of variety is always a good thing.
Nice Inside Jersey Top Chef cover photo and inside spread shot on location at Fosterfields in Morris Township.
The location was beautiful but the weather was a challenge. Luckily we just finished the last photo when the sky opened up and the heavy rain began.
We found out the hard way that you can use photo umbrellas as rain umbrellas too.
