Open house event photo shoot at DLP Paris
DLP Paris, a production/animation company in Paris, asked me to photograph their open house cocktail party. They could not decide between a standard photo shoot and formal studio portraits of their clients to be offered as gifts, so they chose both.
I set up a Mad Men-style studio on site, using office furniture as a backdrop; a couple of stylish leather and chrome armchairs and a decorative Fresnel-ish lamp. While encouraging guests to step into the ‘boudoir’ for a studio shoot, I worked the event with an on-camera flash (Mark III for the reportage and Hasselblad digital back for the studio portraits). The art director was very pleased with the results!
