I was asked to photograph Diabetes UK ambassador Michelle Griffith-Robinson for Balance magazine.
Michelle lives in Devon near the coast so a beach shoot worked perfectly for the article.
The brief from the magazine was quite open but one request they had was a more lifestyle feel rather than just portraits.
Such a unique venue with a visually interesting and exciting sport.
It wasn’t about the racing, for me it was about the place and the people.
Behind the scenes shooting portraits of the guys from Redwood, a video production company based in Cornwall.
The brief was black and white and a little bit different so I went with a simple setup consisting of one light, a white background and a 24mm lens.
I shot a little lower than eye level to give the 24mm a slightly exaggerated look especially when they leaned forward a bit.
The shots of the pair of them again used just one light but this time I used a Sigma Art 50mm.
Equipment used -
Sigma Art 24-35 f2
Sigma Art 50 f1.4
