We have seen a real up swing in folks requesting to be photographed in their work spaces. I personally like these kinds of environmental portraits and think that where people work tells a lot about them. In this case it was a working lab. Lots of work was getting done all around us and we were happy to move out of the way of the folks working. We didn’t have a lot of time to photograph or set up a lot of lighting. There really was not much room in there. But I can tell you that this scientist felt right at home in this space, and I think that comes through in the image. Getting folks comfortable is half the battle when doing portraits and the fact he liked where he was made my job a lot more productive. And he was happy with the results… Success!
