Portrait Of The Week Series: No.41 - Ross Knight
Most of my portrait sittings to date have been with performers and people working in the media. Ross Knight is neither - he is a barrister, specialising in relationship property and trust law. Quite a change of pace, then.
In fact, Ross was a total pleasure to photograph. I spent a couple of hours with him in his chambers on a rainy Saturday afternoon and we worked together to create some clean, graphic portraits as part of a website re-branding project.
Ross is certainly not the archetypical stuffy lawyer, and I think that his warm and friendly personality is captured nicely in these photographs.
Ross is ably assisted in his work by Maxine and Telise, and they joined the shoot to add their own vibe for the team portraits which were shot in and around the stairwell - too wet to photograph outside as originally planned.
A fine-looking legal team - and probably a happier bunch of people than your average musician or media personality..
This shoot was organised by Nikki Fogden-Moore (http://www.thevitalitycoach.com.au) - thanks for the direction/styling/assisting, Nikki.
