Taking head shots of players from either Army Rugby or Navy Rugby is usually a case of as quick as possible and move on, as they tend only to be used for a one inch square image in the match day programme. However we recently worked with four players, two from the Army Rugby Union and two from the Navy Rugby Union on behalf of Sapphire7 and the Army v Navy Match committee. Having created the images for the marketing requirements there was some time at the end of the shoot to capture a few fun images.
The lighting for all the images was based on 2 x Profoto B1X lights, the main light fitted with a 20 degree grid. Fill in light was provided by a Profoto A1. Images produced by Alligin Photography working alongside Charley Rose Photograghy and Scrumpix Images.
