Deakin University - Alumni Portrait Photography

Deakin University of Victoria, Australia have the highest student satisfaction rate of any other university in their state. To celebrate this, they frequently reach out to their alumni members to produce content and articles to communicate the successes of the alumni to potential students.

Raccoon London’s commercial photographer, Dan was commissioned to photograph PR portraits of former students, Melanie Orvis and Pasan Muthumala; choosing to capture them in iconic London locations. Melanie was captured on a warm summer evening of late September, in the stunning Kew Gardens, with the famed palm house taking pride of place in the background. When capturing Pasan, Dan and his assistant were on location for 6 AM to capture him on the famous Millenium Bridge before sunrise; with St.Paul's Cathedral in the background.

The finished photos will be used in the most recent addition of Deakin University's 40 Years of Alumni magazine.
