Recently we have been fortunate enough to be working on a series of portraits of some of the most respected and renowned chefs in the business. Herbert Berger is a three times Michelin starred chef who's most recent role as Chef Partner at 1 Lombard Street and prior to this Executive Chef at The Cafe Royal, Head Chef at Mirabelle and Executive Sous Chef at Claridge's and The Connaught is now the newly appointed head chef at the Inn-holders Inn.
We were to head to this unique London venue to meet with Herbert and capture some imagery for an editorial piece which our clients CCS were to be working on for an up and coming publication. The building in College Street is a a beautiful building with some fantastic backdrops and we ended up dragging Herbert round many rooms to get some images which reflect the building he was now representing. The main shot was to be taken in the main hall where all the diners would come together, A grand room with a balcony and huge chandeliers which we felt we could get the right shot from.
We ended up shooting Herbert on the balcony and had 2 Profoto lights done on the dining hall floor to give us some nice back-light and a single reflector up in the balcony to give us the light we needed to fill in with.
