Union Direct photoshoot with GB Olympic Athletes view of set-up from back of set.

Profoto Pro Big 8 foot Silver. No diffuser. Black polyboards to soak up the light / create shadow in very white studio. Could even do with bit black cloth on floor to soak up even more light. Although white floor does help bounce more light into face and clothes of athletes. Plough Studios (The Cove), Clapham, London.
