Matthias contacted me for a corporate headshot session. He was looking for something different to a picture in front of a white background. We started in studio with natural light, which gave us some unidirectional soft light and allowed me to photograph literally focusing on his eyes. We played around with some flash options and finally decided to continue the shoot in our garden.
We recently started a vegetable garden and also have some fruit trees. (If you live in Cape Town, speak to Mike from Owngrown for your own garden.) Matthias has an active interest in Permaculture and our garden designed leaned towards some interesting conversation. It is here surrounded by indigenous plants that we got the shots, I was looking for. Have a look for yourself.
