I recently shot my second cover feature for the national trade publication, Employee Benefit Advisor Magazine. Sometimes getting an assignment to shoot editorial features can be somehwat difficult, based on both scheduling logistics and available locations. I’m not always presented with amazing locations and often times I need to work under tight time constraints to “get the shot”. Such is the case with this feature about Jon Rauser and his agency based in Milwaukee, WI. We were given a small window of time to shoot the photos and had to use the location (The Rauser Agency’s storefront office) to it’s full potential. No, it’s not the most glamorous location, but we were able to use the office surroundings to shoot the group shots and simple, clean walls to create the below portrait of Jon.

The Rauser Agency is truly unique as they are are a first of it’s kind firm, dedicated to helping people get the coverage needed under President Obama’s Affordable Health Care Act and walks them through the Marketplace website. Jon plans on opening several more storefront locations over the next year throughout the Milwaukee and Madison areas. Here are a few of the shots from the shoot and the corresponding tearsheets from the publication:

    What did your lighting setup look like for this shoot?

    Hey John!

    Thanks for the comment. The group shots were all shot with an AlienBee 1600 + 50″ Wescott Apollo softie. The stand group shot had another secondary AB 800 behind them. All other solo shots were done using the 28″ Wescott Apollo.

    XOXO, You Pal,

      They look great! Gotta give love to the Apollos! I got my first 28″ Apollo box a few months ago, in disposable. Forgot to ask, was the group shot using a 35mm focal length?
