A last minute request for an editorial portrait for David Capes, Vice President of R&D, BD Medical.
We arrived in the late afternoon at David’s office/research facility and met up with him. Before we went down, we were told that David just got back from his overseas business trip and had a really busy schedule and thus. to make the shoot a fast one. But we did not expect David to be so friendly and approachable that he actually took his time to walk us around the facility and building, showing us the various settings which we can explore shooting against. Well, that already made half the job easier.
In order not to take up too much of his time, we opted to shoot mainly with ambience and environmental lighting as the late afternoon sun presents some nice directional light at the sheltered link bridge that connects their building with the one next to it.
He is one of those who prefer a casual and smart casual look and we obliged by taking more shots of him in his shirt or jacket/shirt combination without tie, except for the very last scene where we captured a more formal shot of him and played around with colors a little at the reception area of his office.
