Project Portrait: Day 36

Day 36 of Project Portrait. Next up we have Jimmy Vestbirk, who runs his startup, Legal Geek from The Hatch where I also work. Jimmy sits on the same bank of desks as I do. He always seems to be so busy trying to disrupt London’s centuries old legal profession. So for this photo I wanted to try and show his lighter side, which I caught a glimpse of at the last party we had in the studio. Roux was all too glad to lend a helping hand.

Project Portrait: Day 35

Day 35 of Project Portrait. Next up we have the one, the only Boris Veldhuijzen Van Zanten. Boris is the CEO and co-founder of The Next Web. He’s also my boss. I’ve worked for Boris since March this year and he’s an absolute hoot to work for. The first time I was invited over to his for dinner I woke up at 5 in the morning face down and fully clothed in my hotel room half-way through a conversation with my friend on messenger in which the last words were, “I just think you’re really fucking AWEOSME” [sic]. He’s hands down my favourite boss since Terri White. This was shot at Google Campus while Boris was in London for The Next Web’s World Tour. He’s a man who has always been on the stage – he trained to be a circus performer, but I wanted to grab him before he performed his act.

Project Portrait: Day 34

Day 34. This time we have a one Juan Buis – he works at The Next Web in our Amsterdam HQ. Juan has these amazing glasses and I’ve always wanted an excuse to recreate one of my favourite photos of David Hockney (another excellent glasses wearer) by David Bailey (Google it!). I shot this at The Hatch London while Juan was over in London for The Next Web’s World Tour this week.

Project Portrait: Day 33

Day 33 of Project Portrait. Next up is the lovely Ellie Mann, another member of The Hatch. Ellie runs her own design and UX agency singlehandedly, while still finding the time to chat to everyone. She actually started out training to be an architect, but found the designing of presentations far more rewarding than the actual work (and would even charge friends in the process). For this photo Ellie couldn’t stop giggling and was worried she’d come out looking like she’d been running. Despite Ellie emitting this weird humming noise (which I think was a form of laughter) I still managed to find this photo in among it all.
