Henrik Lundqvist Portraits

Thanks to our editors at the New York Observer, we recently made the trip up to New York City to photograph all star NY Rangers goalie, Henrik Lundqvist. Not only a world class athlete but also an immaculately dressed and adventurous photo subject, our 20 minutes on an NYC rooftop with King Henrik flew by as we shot a handful of awesome images.

Knowing that we didn’t have any time to waste, we arrived early and pre-lit four different setups for Mr. Lundqvist. When your subject is used to the fast-paced action of NHL hockey, you better not have them waiting around on set.

Of course, as soon as he saw the opportunity, the daredevil goalie hopped on this conveniently placed ladder for a few more action shots.

After we had wrapped up all the shots on the rooftop, there was just one more task at hand.  Chris and King Henrik hopped into his Bentley and they tore around midtown Manhattan – all in the name of making great photos.

    Very cool. He could pass off as Marco Grob! It would be great to know more about your thought process when you set up a shoot like this. How much pre-planning goes into each of four setups, with regards to posing and the type of image that you are after, before you even get to the roof top, or do you decide once you get to the location?

  2. […] never know who they’re going to have for us to shoot. They’ve given us Kevin Spacey, Henrik Lundqvist, Kevin Kline, and a few others in the past. If you haven’t seen them, there are posts for […]
