His experience as a specialist working for these sorts of end clients means that Mitch knows the difference between what a trade magazine needs from a business location versus what a communications department that is part of the business needs from a photography session. Both types of client can have very different needs from the same location.

You need an experienced photographer who is well versed in the wide variety of people and businesses that are encountered on a photo shoot. And you need one who has the track record of planning his way through a shoot far ahead of the time any photos are made, right through handling challenges in the moment at a shoot, to bringing the final images home and delivering them on time and on budget. And you need a photographer who is affable and personable. Agile and focused. One who knows how to work hard and get the job done for you with a great attitude, no matter the challenges.
And you want one who can do that while respecting your budget and making the behind the scenes process of getting all the paperwork done in a painless and efficient fashion so that your work on the back end is made as easy as possible.
This was a very familiar sort assignment where Mitch was commissioned by a business publication. The brief was to cover the people and facilities at a busy outpatient surgery practice. And to create coverage of enough situations and provide a big enough variety of content that the magazine had enough images to choose from for as large or small a story as they wanted to run. And that included having several candidates for a cover.
And it had a challenge that is familiar to Mitch: The Busy Doctor. Often, he will be called upon to photograph busy executives, top management or possibly professionals who have a demanding schedule and don’t have the time to wait around as a photographer figures out what to do and fiddles with setting it all up.
Agility in problem solving and working with what any location presents is Mitch’s fortè. Seeing a great potential image then setting up the lighting, if needed, and directing a busy subject helps to maximize the opportunity for a great image allowing for Mitch to create a wide variety of images from any setting for an editor or art director.
A well developed sense of how, as well as when, to use supplemental lighting on a subject means that any technical challenge can be overcome. In this case there was a great existing-light scenario with the surgery lamps. But those lights alone were not enough to create a great image, one that could be run across two pages of a magazine. Mitch leveraged those to be part of his lighting scheme, adding multiple frontal lights to bring the subject out from the background, while maintaining the feeling of the surgery lamps.
All of this was set up, tested and completed in short order once the surgery room was available, ahead of the time the doctor would be arriving. Then the doctor, busy seeing patients, created a little break in his schedule and was brought on-set for a few minutes to make the final images. He was then released to resume his full schedule after several variations on this photo were made.
Get him involved early in the process. There is plenty to talk about, even before you have figured it all out for yourself. Mitch can help you with the process of understanding your needs, overcoming challenges and creating a plan that will allow a shoot to go great, producing a variety of interesting images.
