Neil Etheridge editorial portrait. As an editorial photographer you are often called on at short notice to provide imagery for editorial content in newspapers and magazines. I was asked to shoot Neil Etheridge editorial portrait photograph for The Daily Telegraph.
Whilst working in the corporate sector it’s always great to be able to shoot a portrait for the national press in the UK
Neil Etheridge current goal keeper for Cardiff City football club needed to be photographed at short notice.
A short trip to Wales found me at a local golf resort and hotel.
Quite often the interviews take place away from the place of work in this case a football ground and this can leave little in the way fo creative spaces to sue as locations.
20 years of working for the national press however has meant that I can shoot on the hoof and create eye catching portraits with little raw material.
Having only 15 minutes to work with I mangled to create 4 location scenarios each one subtly different to the last to give the layout team some different crops and “feels” to play with.
