Dr. Matthew Murtha is a scientist with a PhD in molecular biology and also a performing comedian in Barcelona. In the process of promoting himself as a personal brand and building his brand identity, he was keen to make some goofy portraits and headshots uniting his 2 professions : Science and Comedy.
Passionate about science and biology but born to make people laugh, the headshots had to highlight Dr. Murtha’s double life, as a doctor and as a comedian.
We used coloured lighting to make him feel detached from the background and give a colourful touch to the portraits without distorting his face. Props mixing scientific and live show elements were used to illustrate Dr. Murtha’s unique melting pot career.
