Shooting environmental portraits is one of our favourite things to do, so naturally we love photographing graduate profiles for Melbourne-based training provider William Angliss Institute.
Angliss trains students for careers in foods, hospitality, events and tourism, and graduates go on to have incredibly varied careers in places like high end restaurants, boutique patisseries, iconic tourism business and wildlife tour companies - just to name a few!
A recent outdoor advertising campaign in Melbourne features Image Workshop's portraits of Angliss alumni in their new careers. The colourful images seen around the city on Street Talk sites and numerous billboards provide inspiration to prospective students by showing off the awesome jobs that Angliss training can lead to.
Typically we'll spend an hour on location to shoot a grad portait, however sometimes we have to roll with the punches and work with less-than-ideal parameters. For example we only had a 15-minute window to create the portrait of Amelia in the SEA LIFE Melbourne aquarium 'fish tunnel', which is a stunning location but tricky to shoot due to reflections from the curved glass and crazy colour temperatures from the ambient lighting. We got the portrait set up in record time and even managed to get a manta ray to swim overhead at just the right moment. Boo yeah!!
