…because you never know when someone will ask you to shoot a classic black and white portrait for corporate head office. A rare thing these days of Instagram aesthetics.
In a visually noisy world of over saturated, over photo shopped, really bad HDR artificial photos it is so nice to have someone who appreciates classic black & white portraiture walk into your studio. It’s always rewarding to revisit and practice the lighting lessons taught to us by the great masters like Rembrandt and Vermeer (…see Rembrandt Lighting) and 1940’s Hollywood photographers such as George Hurrell, who pioneered the use of high intensity focused fresnel lights found on movies sets. Its clean, back to basics and keeps it simple. It’s about the light, not the camera. This is Marc Lafrenière, teacher, photographer, film and art aficionado …future .com billionaire. :^)

After three years of photographing the musicians of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra in performance, back stage, on the road and in a series of on location photo shoots, I finally got the symphony CEO, Neil Edwards, in the studio and in front of the camera for his portrait. …click to enlarge.

After a week on the gritty, slushy, cold downtown film sets of The Slattery Street Crockers I’m happy to be back in the warm, dry studio to finish up this project I’ve been working on for Olivia Chafe at The Headroom in St. John’s. Kept thinking I was having a 1968 flashback. Must be watching to many episodes of Mad Men.
