I'm sorry my blogging has been quite irregular lately but I've been busy. Can't complain, right?
Here are some of the shoots I had (details below):
- Geneva Charity Ball photo booth
- EasyJet in-flight magazine portrait
- Editorial assignment at Institut Le Rosey
- A wedding as a favor for some good friends
- Food photography for a caterer in Geneva
- Covered an event for an arts foundation in Geneva
To view the details about the above shoots and some photos as well, please continue reading.
I had originally offered my services for the Geneva Charity Ball as I really liked their moto: «Having a good time doing good».
The concept of the evening was fun. To raise money, the organized an auction and raffle.
Regarding the photography, rather than shooting people eating, drinking, etc., I thought it would be fun setting up a booth for people to come and have their photo taken.
The setup was really cool (sweet vintage leather chairs, old frames, oriental rugs) and I had my computer to show the photos in real time. The feedback from the guests was incredible!
This was a lot of fun. I received an email from a global publishing company who needed to have a portrait taken for the in-flight EasyJet magazine.
They have a section called «Behind the Scenes» and every month they feature someone from the EasyJet staff. I took a picture of Mahmoud, he's a maître de cabine. I would have ideally like to shoot him on board but due to security reasons, this was not possible.
When we arrived at the Geneva EasyJet headquarters, I immediately noticed the hanging inflated aircrafts. I had my shot!
The Times Educational Supplement wrote me an email and asked if I could cover a story at the most expensive school in the world: Institut Le Rosey.
It was fun and interesting walking around with the Headmaster and visiting the school, meeting the students, etc. It's an impressive place and education seems to be top notch!
For privacy and security reasons, I am unfortunately not allowed to publish any pictures yet.
Thomas & Camille are old friends, I've known her over 20 years and him nearly 15!
So when they asked me to photograph the civil wedding, I couldn't refuse!
It was a great ceremony and the cocktail party was absolutely perfect!
This was an absolute first, shooting food. It was great though. The toughest part was not to eat what was presented on the table. Not only would the photos have been different, the food is stylized for the photo and thus, makes it inedible.
Oh well, at least the food fed my eyes…
I was recommended to this client by a friend. Although I don't usually do event photography, the client called me Sunday evening for the next day. As I had no other shoot planned that day, I decided to take the gig.
I am not authorized to publish pictures. It's a shame, the event was at the Four Seasons «Les Bergues» in Geneva.
Have a great week and start getting ready for the Holiday Season!
