Motorola Employee Credit Union recently went through some major changes. They started serving the public outside of just Motorola employees and grew exponentially. With that growth came a name change to Andigo and a need to update their corporate headquarters in Schaumburg, IL. They decided to approach the change in a way that goes against what you typically see with a financial institution. They didn't want the space to have the look and feel of a bank but rather a high tech and forward thinking vibe.
Coming into the shoot I knew this was the approach decided upon by the bank and executed by Shive Hattery. The spaces are extremely moody and dramatic, so in order to capitalize on their look I implemented a specific style of supplemental lighting. There is actually quite a bit of lighting going on on my part but I lit the spaces in a way that mimicked the existing lighting but brought some details out in the shadow areas.
