Jeremy Irons portrait, location portrait shoot in Bath for The Daily Telegraph. One of the UK’s greatest actors and Chancellor of Bath Spa University.
For the reason that working for the press one usually only gets a few minutes with the subject.
Therefore a photographer who specialises in reportage photography is a good choice.
The photographer should be able to shoot pictures on site in variety of styles.
This Jeremy Irons portrait was one of the set that I shot and sent out to The Daily Telegraph
He was there for the opening of the university’s £35 million Art & Design campus.
A new state-of-the-art facility located in the former Herman Miller factory in Bath, designed by Sir Nicholas Grimshaw”.
Furthermore he was giving a lecture to students.
So between lectures, lunch and meetings we managed to shoot a variety of image inside and outside.
The press and reportage photographer knows that one shot might be all you get, so you have to work fast.
This is my favourite shot from the time we had together.
Jeremy and his dog Smudge in perfect harmony.
Most noteworthy with commissions of this nature it is really important to work efficiently and pro actively.
Early arrival, scouring the location and being ready all help to get the best from there time available, in this case only 10 minutes.
