Lady in Red

I enjoy the challenge of arriving at a new location and seeking out the best setting for my subject. It didn’t take long this time: the moment Patricia Masters of Westgate CVs opened the door to her rich red hallway I knew where to shoot the business portraits she’d commissioned. I placed my lighting strategically to build some intrigue and create a sense of recession through the arches. And the other week the Northwest British Institute of Professional Photography Awards confirmed that my hallway hunch was right when, in the Environmental Portraiture category, my lady in red won me a gold.
