Project Portrait: Day 20

Day 20 of Project Portrait. Next up is Matthew Lenzi. Matt works for Hanno, a design agency that is also a social enterprise. That means they reinvest the profits they make straight back into giving their time away for free to those who will make the greatest impact to the lives of others and the planet we live on. For this shoot I wanted to keep it simple, and I found this poster hanging in our studio at The Hatch and thought it helped convey Matt’s ideas on trying to do the right thing. Matt works in my studio in Shoreditch, where this photo was shot.

Project Portrait: Day 19

Day 19 of Project Portrait. This morning we have Isobel Edwards – who has just started working with Nana Wereko-Brobby over at Social Concierge. I must first thank Isobel for agreeing to sit for me as it was her first day atThe Hatch and I’m sure she wasn’t expecting that when she walked in for the day. Anyway, there was this amazing sunlight streaming in through the windows and luckily she was wearing black and white which fitted the spot where the sun was perfectly. I thought about keeping it black and white, but that felt too easy. I wanted to keep some colour, but not too much, to give it a gentle mix of colour and contrast.

Project Portrait: Day 18

Day 18 of Project Portrait, it’s Thursday, which means it’s ‪#‎tbt‬! This time it’s a photo I took way back in 2010 of my former flatmate Alex Di Francesco. He’s a criminal barrister, and spends most of his time providing counsel to people who can’t afford the astronomical fees of those further up the legal chain. I wanted to try and convey that in this photo by shooting him outside in a slightly run-down, wasted space, as he was always traveling across the country to some of the less glamorous towns dotted around the capital. I liked the clash of his suit and tie, with the rundown feel around him. I also wanted that contrast to be stark so used an off-camera flash. This was shot in Kentish Town.

Project Portrait: Day 17

Day 17 of Project Portrait. Next up we have Andrew Ibbotson, who is one of the co-founders of TrueView, a startup that helps people connect through the things they love doing, as opposed to a swipe to the right. I was a little scared of Andrew when I first met him earlier this year. However, after a few months working in The Hatch London which he also runs, I learned he’s actually very lovely. This was shot at The Hatch in Shoreditch, and I liked the idea of having something that was a bit cliche in dating circles sat next to him.
