London Portrait Shoot at The Houses of Parliament

LONDON PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHER ON LOCATION AT THE HOUSES OF PARLIAMENT

As part of the Portrait Project I am working in collaboration with Wellbeing of Women I recently visited the Houses of Parliament to take portraits of Baroness Anne Jenkin.

Anne is a Conservative member of the House of Lords and stood for election as a Member of Parliament in the 1987 election. In 2005, she co-founded with Brooks Newmark Women2Win, a campaign to increase the number of female Conservative MPs. She is part of the Wellbeing of Women ‘family’ and has been involved with organising their Literary Lunches with Eve Pollard since 2008.

Anne was a wonderful subject to photograph; welcoming, friendly, dynamic, interesting, elegant, fun and famous for her frugal wardrobe.

The Houses of Parliament make a fabulous backdrop for a portrait shoot from the spectacular halls and corridors of power to the Baroness’s desk, which to me is a portrait in itself with the assortment of papers, filing trays, notepads, glasses, phone, computer etc on her desk and crenellated arches and castle stained glass window in the background.

Firstly, the photographer have the set up for teh shot right. It might be that they need to move some furniture, set up a backdrop, reposition items which might be in the way, etc. 

Next the phographer must get the client to relax. Only when they are feeling confident and comfortable in their skin will it be possible to get a great executive headshot.
