The marketing manager of one of our existing clients, WSP OPUS asked for a series of portrait shots at the Auckland Waterfront, to be used for promotion and on the website. It was an early morning shoot, taking advantage of the crisp winter weather and avoiding too much sun.

One of the goals was to include some background into the shot that would identify Auckland. We chose the Ferry Building. Of course, there is a play off between achieving a good portrait and ensuring that you can see the background. In the end, though, the portrait takes priority!
