BBC Bitesize portraits
A friend of mine asked me if I could help the BBC team and get portraits of the every single person who will be interviewed on the day.
I worked with the BBC crew for a couple of days. The studio was hired in Hackney, so not far from home. My time to get portraits was very limited, I had literally between 5 and 10 minutes per person. Photos were delivered on the next day and widely shared online by people listed below!
So who was standing in front of my camera?
Jackie Fast – entrepreneur, author, speaker. “Great things never come from comfort zones” @jackiefast.
Jackie arrived in London from Canada back in 2007 with the intent to backpack Europe. She ended up staying in London and launching her first business. She created Slingshot Sponsorship in her bedroom with just a laptop. After 6 years of hard work and dedication Jackie sold her company for millions.
