Ed Miliband for the Financial Times

I was recently commissioned by the Financial Times Weekend magazine to photograph the Labour leader Ed Miliband. It was quite a high pressure shoot - doing it as we were potentially for the cover (which was being held on deadline for the shot). However a quick location scout, and a few tests in the studio during the preceding days meant that our 20 minute window was used to maximum efficiency! Above are the layouts as they ran, and below was my favourite image from the shoot.

Recent Portrait: Alex Reid, Cage Fighter

I recently had as assignment shooting Alex Reid, a professional Cage Fighter and part-time tabloid punchbag due to his high profile relationships and subsequent antics. He was certainly an interesting and larger than life character to photograph. The spread ran in the Financial Times Weekend magazine.

Recent Assignment: Golfing in Turkey

I had a recent assignment in Turkey photographing Golf Resorts for Easy Jet. Not a golfer myself but I relished the chance to get on the driving range of whack a few shots off. Bit of winter sun is always appreciated too.

Recent Work: Barts Square lifestyle shoot

This was part of a recent campaign I shot with the agency Me & Dave for their client Barts Square, a Residential and property development in central London. The inspiration for the shoot was Jean Luc Goddard and New Wave French cinema. We scouted locations which had a timeless feel to them but were within the area in which Barts Square operates and then cast models with the right look. The final outcome was a series of evocative, timeless and natural looking lifestyle shots that Barts Square used across their branding, website and print materials.
