Digitas Health commissioned me to shoot three portraits in November for a pharma campaign, one each in Manhattan, Boston and Los Angeles. Jenny Friedman, VP Creative Director, wanted them a bit monochromatic and warm, and done in a similar style to the Chicago streetcast portrait project I shot last year (see earlier post).
Each portrait was of a cancer survivor, and each was a delight to shoot. Especially fun was the late Kathryn Joosten (below) of Desperate Housewives, who took a break from filming with Eva Longoria to bring her larger-than-life personality to the shoot and give us lots of great images.
We did them all in studio with a simple seamless background, then did a little post-processing to achieve the subtle look that Jenny was after. Thanks again to Jenny for her skillful help in art directing the shoots, and art buyer Ken Zane.
