I have been looking for new ways to photograph corporate portraits in London. The convenient location is the corporate office, but this has its limitations and with the visually rich streets of London outside most corporate premises it seems a shame not to use them. In the past I had been commissioned by Citywire magazine to shoot corporate portraits anywhere but in the office and this would often fill me with dread as the weather could misbehave or the sitter might not fancy a stroll down to the river. I have started to have a quick butchers around corporate buildings in London before I go inside, just in case I get asked to go outside to do the portrait. With many of my corporate clients having a much higher requirement for using photographs all media, being able to give them another option is a real advantage. This corporate portrait was shot directly opposite The Bank of England, but i wanted to be a little more subtle and just suggest elements of London, with sitter not looking to camera and reading the FT.
