I had a photoshoot with some of Accra’s finest bartenders at HoneySuckle Labone for Beefeater gin.
It was a fun session and one which had a few challenges which were mitigated fairly quickly.
Some of the bartenders had never been individually in front of a camera and so did not know what to do. I always find such experiences fun because it gives me a chance to give people a good experience and quell their nerves.
For every shoot I conduct, I always have a plethora of references for my subjects. I do this to start the conversation.
Before the shoot begins, there is already a direction to start with and a story as well so what happens after the first shot and some coaching is my subjects become more fluid and comfortable in trying different poses and their ideas.
