Celebrity portraiture & fashion photographer Ki Price got 19 seconds to shoot a portrait of Star Wars actor John Boyega. Naturally he chose the Profoto B2 as his companion. We asked him about the experience.
One could say that Ki Price’s way into commercial photography was through cinema. Early on he realized the secret behind masterpieces by the likes of Stanley Kubrick, David Lynch, and Hal Hartley – controlling the lighting. Being a self-taught photographer he started to apply that to his photography.
“I like creating an image rather than just taking it”, Ki Price says. “About 8 years ago I really started to get into lighting with flash and realized when I where sent onto assignments I could change a horrible flowery room into a really dramatic portrait.”
