Derek Ford was tasked with photographing the Seekers Solutions team portraits for their website. Seeker Solutions wanted the portraits to be interesting and showcase the personalities of their team. The location had already been chosen by the client, Easy Livin’, a vintage furniture store here in Victoria, B.C.. The shoot had to be completed in one day at the location. Derek knew a lot of preplanning had to be done in order to complete this task. I was hired to concept the shoot and art direct.
The concept chosen was to create scenes inside the store that had the team members acting out one of their pastimes. To help the with the tight deadlines I created concept sketches of each of the set ups so on location Derek new exactly what the finished composition looked like as well as the props needed from the shop.
