Chris Dee, CEO of Booths

Hale Barns in South Manchester was the site for a new Booths supermarket. Apart from covering the event, my client also needed some quality portraits of key staff including this chap, the CEO. With time short as ever, I had to pre light, sit him down and let him go 4 minutes later. Another stinging […]
