Press days are great things, they give you the opportunity to produce something a bit different from the norm, its also one of the few times when drivers aren’t rushing around (to much) and with a bit of organising you can have the opertunity to produce some decent portraits. As luck would have it Jakob Ebery had already organised a portrait session for all the drivers so I cheekily tagged along.
These things tend to fly by no one wants to hang around longer than they have and its realistically 1/2 minuets per person before your moving onto the next one, so you have to have a game plan and you have to keep it simple.
A quick look behind the scene’s this is how the set up looked once we’d finished a a few things moved around over the course of the shoot but it gives you a pretty good idea, a quick and easy three light set up.
For those that are wondering yes that is in the back of a pit garage, the small background isn’t ideal but it’s easy to transport and means that I can shoot in some pretty small rooms, to get round the width issue I shoot with long lenses which allow me to compress the background nicely.
Not going to fill this post up with lots of images as they are all pretty similar
