CEO Portrait for Forbes

Another magazine I love shooting for is Forbes. Michele Hadlow, the photo editor contacted me to photograph Chairman and CEO of Damac Group, a UAE based property developer. Dubbed the Donald of Dubai, Mr. Sajwani was a treat to photograph - patient and cooperative, but he is a busy man and the time allotted to me was limited. 

As with most corporate portrait photography assignments, the photographer is rarely given a lot of time to shoot. The key to pulling it off is to arrive early and prepare -multiple lighting setups in place, multiple cameras lensed up and ready to go. The less time I am given to photograph a subject the more time I usually need to setup! Here are a couple of images from the shoot and how it appeared in Forbes magazine.

Corporate Portraits for People Management


I was commissioned by People Management magazine last month to photograph four HR professionals in Dubai. People Management is the official magazine and media brand of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and is published for them by Haymarket Media Group in the UK.

They called on me again last month to make engaging corporate portraits to illustrate the various case studies and other human resources related stories in the latest issue
