Portraits for EY’s Entrepreneur of the Year Award

Ernst and Young is a multinational professional services firm headquartered in London, United Kingdom. Each year they give regional and national business owners and CEOs The Entrepreneur of the Year Award to honor those who have founded and built some of the worlds most enduring companies.

We were contacted by Ernst & Young to photograph the CEO of Cott Beverages, Jerry Fowden. Mr. Fowden had been awarded The Entrepreneur of the Year. Therefore EY needed a few environmental portraits that would showcase Cott’s unique headquarters in Tampa. So, my assistant and I showed up early to scout a few locations for the portraits. Finally we set up lighting and took a few test shots to keep things moving quickly for our CEO portraits. In the end Jerry was very generous with his time and we were able to get some great shots of him for Ernst & Young.
