Radio Presenter Portraits – Mix96
An awesome time shooting presenter portraits for Mix96 Aylesbury radio station.
Radio Presenter Portraits – Mix96: for those that are reading this and are perhaps not too local to Aylesbury in Bucks, Mix96 is a central part of Buckinghamshire life with 2 in 3 people in the area listening to the station which is a huge audience for local radio. From my own experience of Mix96, the radio station really do get involved in the community and can be regularly seen in the area at events supporting activities, charities and initiatives, the shows and presenters are well liked and well received by everyone I know, so to be invited in to discuss a set of professional portrait photographs for the weekday presenting and news staff was a pleasure indeed.
Discussing requirements with Wes Venn and Chris Maskery, the general brief was to take a set of white background shots that show the personality of all the presenters and the news team, with a mix of almost straight ‘headshot’ type images along side a more animated set. The reasoning behind this is that as well as including images on the ‘presenters’ area of the Mix96 website, also the images could be used for events, promotions and for the online ‘listen live’ app. I’ve photographed a huge number of clients over the years, setting up my portable studio in many different offices around the country to ensure that each company minimise costly staff time away from their work, but I have to say this location shoot rates highly on being the most entertaining and hilarious, I had such a laugh with all the presenters. Mix96 also needed set of images of the presenters and news team in the studio, which again, was so entertaining listening to them ad lib whilst I took their photos.
Feedback so far from Wes and Chris has been very positive regarding the images supplied and they are beginning to use the images on the site. Below are a selection of images from our shoot, with admittedly a few more of Wes than anyone else, this was at the point where we were having such a laugh that we really did need to stop and catch our breath as we needed to take some more steely eyed sort of serious looking ones as well!
Mix96 are well worth a listen especially if you live in Aylesbury Vale, even if you are not local and like listening to a good selection of music plus some awesome entertainment, you can find their website here which has a ‘listen live’ button.
