Subject: Zohreh Saher, President, InterVivos Mentorship Society of Alberta; Policy Analyst, Alberta Urban Municipalities Association
1. Photographing environmental portraits of policy people and analysts for awards like Top 40 is always very challenging because its difficult to find a location that has a narrative for their career.
2. We had a long discussion about location but settled on a private art gallery for the shoot.
3. Rather than have a background with a strong narrative I decided to shoot Zohreh against a simple wall that had a strong visual components.
4. I lit her quite evenly and let the colors and lines speak in the photograph.
