Portraits for Nikkei Business Journal

A few weeks back I shot some portraits for Nikkei Business Journal, the largest business publication in Japan.
I had the pleasure of photographing Steve Boom, the co-founder of Amazon Music at his office in San Francisco.

I had a very limited amount of time with Steve, this photo was happening in Tandem with an oral interview but he was kind and patient enough to leave the conference room and give me a few frames.
I used a simple single light setup, an umbrella with a speedlite in the main work area of the office.

Here is the original image, before it had to be cropped for Nikkei Business Journal:


Portraits of Pete

Recently I talked about rebranding my company with a new logo, new website etc. Peter Edwards was my graphic designer and he was gracious enough to not only let me use our early drafts and notes in a blog post, but he also let me take a portrait of him. I wanted to capture his image on film, so I hauled out my Mamiya RZ67, a medium format 6x7 camera that shoots 120mm film. A few of my favorites are below as well as a little video I put together about the shoot.
