I was commissioned by the Big Issue for a magazine editorial photography lifestyle shoot the other day. The brief was to capture Darren, one of the Big Issue’s vendors, on location in Bournemouth through lifestyle portrait photography for their editorial feature “My Pitch”.
Creative lifestyle photography documenting the vendor within his working environment was required. As the photos are for an editorial piece within the magazine, plenty of room for overlay text was allowed within the composition. Post production to enhance the look and feel of the photos was completed prior to supplying a download link to the client for the press ready digital negatives. This was completed within 1 hour of the shoot.
It’s always fun meeting new people, it’s one of the perks of being a photojournalist. People photography has always been a passion which makes the job interesting as well as rewarding.
Here are a few examples from the lifestyle photography shoot in Bournemouth, Dorset:
