The vision/brief was to provide clean and contemporary portraits, with a hint of Northampton in them for a geographical reference if possible. The town has some interesting architectural locations, which were a big help and made things fairly straight forward.
The team at NBC had already done a good job scouting the locations they were after, which really helped as we weren't wasting time hunting round for the best place on the day, this was fortunate as we had very mixed weather on the first day's shoot. We started off with rain, then we had warm sunshine, which turned to overcast and grey, returning to rain at the end of the day. Luckily the we seemed to be in the right place at the right time to avoid the rain when shooting outdoors.
In terms of the final product, I'm pleased with it. The design team have done a good job bringing the individual pieces together. We shot a variety of images at each location and it's always interesting as a photographer to see which image is selected for the final piece. I always shoot as many options as possible (within reason) to give the client plenty of choice and scope for the final usage of the image and it's good to see the team have used them well.
