Portrait and editorial photographer Francesco Ridolfi is just as acquired with fine art projects as he is with commercial photography. Recently he got commissioned by König to do a campaign shoot in the Alps. So he filled his car with some Profoto B1 Off-Camera Flashes, Profoto D1 Monolights, and the BatPac, headed up the snowy mountains, and shot a behind the scenes video of it all.

The whole shoot took a total of three days. The first day was basically just for the trip and a quick location scouting of the place. Day two and three Francesco and his crew did the actual shoot. Since he was photographing in a pretty rough environment he needed equipment he could rely on.

“You don’t want to have any problem when you are on assignment for a client!” Francesco explains.

Photographer Victoria Will is a commerical and editorial portrait photographer and her work appears in newspapers and magazines worldwide, from New York Times to Vogue. She has also been shooting celebrities at Sundance Filmfestival for several years now. But this this year she decided to do it differently.

Rather than bringing her new digital camera, she bought a really, really old one. Rather than creating digital files and prints, she used a century-old technique called tintypes, also know as melainotype or ferrotype.

The result: celebrity portraiture like you have never seen it before.
