Robert Brunner of ammunition - from a top san francisco corporate headshot photographer
I feel incredibly lucky and proud to be a photographer, especially when it enables me to work with amazing people like Robert Brunner, founder and partner at Ammunition. I was excited to work with him on a shoot for SOMA Magazine, and we were both thrilled with the photos that resulted.
We caught up the weekend before the shoot to chat about locations and ideas for the photos. On our call, he mentioned had a room that had lots of windows and was all white. Since his products -- like Dr Dre Beats Headphones -- are all bright, fun colours, I thought this would be perfect to make the shots really pop. To add to the contrast, I also asked Robert, who is blonde, to wear all white. We did shots around the office but really focused on that white room, and those were the photos that really popped.
I like to shoot using opposite colors on the color wheel as a focus. For example, orange and blue really stand out, and make a huge visual impact, when used together. Using white as our backdrop in this case made the yummy-as-candy colours of the products we were shooting really come to life.
For someone with such a packed schedule, Robert was super nice and really accommodating to let me have so much time to shoot with him. In the end, he was really proud of what we created together and was excited to start showcasing the photos.
