I was commissioned by Jan Brunaes, CEO of IFS Asia Pacific, to take corporate portraits for 3 guys in his office. I haven’t really done any corporate portraits before so I figured I’d try it out.

The first thing I did was research on how corporate portraits usually look like. Most are the usual studio-type shots with the printed backdrop and strobes; others are the ones with skyscrapers in the background; and yet others have the company logo prominently displayed. I thought I’d just figure out how to go about it when I see their office. Jan offered to bring his Elinchrom light kit for the shoot but I insisted on using available light.

When I got there, I was so glad to see that Jan’s office had a huge space with huge windows, so it was perfectly lit for portraits. I decided to keep the portraits simple and straight-forward. Thanks to Jan, Simon, and Wilbert, each of them was a good sport. And I was happy with how the photos came out. These are some of the ones that were chosen:
