One of the joys of photographing weddings is that you get to make friends with new people. Rachel and David were one of my couples in 2010, and we’re still in touch. When Rachel contacted me about a photoshoot I gladly accepted, not just because she’s hilarious fun to be with, but because she’s also an incredibly talented conductor, and I really enjoy shooting head-shots for musicians.
In her words Rachel “wanted some photos that looked like her”, so when people read their programs and see the conductor’s photo they can actually recognise her afterwards. I was very happy to oblige.
(For any interested photographers the first image was taken on a Nikon D700, 50mm f/1.4 lens @ 320 ISO, f/2.5 and 1/400th sec. The second image was shot on a Nikon F80 with an 85mm f/1.8 lens with Kodak Porta 400 ISO film.)
