Ultraviolet Chef Paul Pairet UV餐厅主厨 Paul Pairet

About three years ago, we did a portrait for chef Paul Pairet.  A couple of days ago, he contacted us, he said he needed a new portrait of him.

This time, he gave Scott a request. He wanted to be photographed right in front of the signature wall in the Ultraviolet restaurant. The wall is full of his customers’ signatures and beautiful comments on it. We asked ourselves how could we make this portrait interesting?

Because of Scott frequent work in UV he knew the space quite well .The night before at around 4a.m(His usual creative vision time) Scott came up with his idea. He decided to use ring flash to make strongly visional effect. Also when Scott saw the wall with signatures and comments which looks a lot like graffiti, he wanted to re-create the 80s New York graffiti style. 

At the beginning, Chef Paul couldn't grasp the idea with the ring flash, but once he saw the images he was happy.

Also you can see the previous portrait that we made three years ago. Which do you prefer? 

大约在三年前左右,我们帮Chef Paul拍过一组他个人肖像照。前几天,他打电话跟我们说他需一组新的肖像照。

这次Paul提出一个要求,他要在他Ultraviolet餐厅的一面墙前面拍。那是一面签满名字和有很漂亮留言的墙。问题来了,“我们要怎么把这个照片拍的有趣呢?”

由于Scott经常与Ultraviolet餐厅合作,所以他非常熟悉那一面墙。在拍摄的前一天凌晨4点左右(通常是他的最佳创作时间。。。)他突然有了灵感!他决定使用环形闪光灯去达到强烈的视觉效果。同时他想呈现80年代纽约涂鸦时代的效果。

开始拍摄时,主厨不是太不明白Scott的点子和环形闪光灯可以带来的效果。但是当Chef Paul一看到照片后,他十分的满意。

你可以对比一下两张照片,一个是今年拍的,一个是三年前拍的。你比较喜欢那种风格呢?
