New style PR portraits? Press release photographer Grantly Lynch London

Contemporary PR portrait photography © Grantly Lynch – Corporate Portrait Photographer London UK

This was a recent commission for Chaz Brooks Communications http://chazb.com/
I had worked with Chaz before and he liked my informal photographic style, so it was nice to
shoot  business portraits for PR use that were more natural and used available light rather
than relying on heavy flash lighting which can be harsh and not that flattering for subjects.
It would be good to see more PR companies choosing this style for their clients.
It is harder to do as you have to think carefully about composition and getting the
lighting right-
But I reckon its worth it?
Location – Business park near Gatwick
Client – Chaz Brooks Communications

Model/property release restrictions

You cant pick up your camera without having to worry about model and property releases.

Its now a case of working within these new restrictions. Its a little tricky getting things out of focus to the correct amount and the exposure has to be spot on, but it avoids any issues of model/property releases and it looks like you meant to do it.

London street photography – Is it still legal?

It has never been easy to photograph in London without someone asking you if they ‘can help you’

But it appears things are getting tougher

More than 2,000 photographers demonstrate against police using terrorism laws to prevent photography in public places

I am very discreet when I am working and careful not to show people’s faces as this will render the shot useless for stock or publication without a model release. So if you can dodge the bored security guard and the interested amateur who has several hours to kill, you now only have to convince the police that you are not a (rather blatant) terrorist, and you can get on with earning your living.

Business portraits in London by photographer Grantly Lynch

It is often quite tricky with clients who feel they know exactly what they want from a business portrait photo shoot. I was asked to replicate a business portrait that a photographer from The Times had taken for a press article. Although it was a good business portrait it was very sharp and clinical and I felt it would be better if the subject was in focus and the background and business logo knocked back and less intrusive. Client agreed.
