Composer’s Publicity Portraits
I recently had the pleasure of meeting and photographing Mitchell Gibbs who is an up and coming classically trained freelance composer and orchestrator working for the film, television and video game industries.
Mitchell is building a strong portfolio of highly creative musical work and needed the right style of portrait publicity photographs to assist in his web marketing and networking efforts. We held a pre-shoot meeting to discuss the exact look he was trying to achieve and after much debate, we decided to keep musical instrument prop use to a minimum and go for a contemporary and modern style of portrait photography with darker backgrounds and a higher contrast look to the images.
The finished photographs are exactly what was required and are being used to great effect throughout Mitchell’s social media presence and via his agents marketing.
