Sadiq Khan - cover story for Total Politics

The new Total Politics magazine is out now with my photograph on the cover and more inside alongside the interview.
We shot last month in London - my first time back 'home' - in Sadiq Khan's office in Tooting.
While Total Politics editor Ben Duckworth carried out the interview, we set up a photographic set in a basement room. We shot a eyes-only-in-focus portrait for the cover at f2.2 and then something more playful for the inside spread.
Antonello Sticca art directed the set with found objects with a slight country but solid feeling: a beautiful old wooden table, a chair, few stands and even an old fashion a teapot ... but you need to grab a copy of the magazine to see more.
Sadiq Khan was very relaxed and happy to be photographed, given us more than the usual 5 minutes, what a relief!

Cover photo, Caroline Lucas for Total Politics mag

The January issue of "Total Politics" magazine is now out for sale, with my photograph of Caroline Lucas on the cover and more featuring inside with her interview. 
I shot the leader of the Green Party inside Portcullis House at Westminster. As usual with a very busy MP, we have a bit of time to set up backdrop and lighting in a little area and then only few moments to shoot their portraits. Caroline Lucas was extremely nice and after taking her portrait we wandered around Portcullis House to take some more natural images and show Total Politics readers a bit more of the settings - strangely in between indoor garden, modern office and classic decor.
The cover design is by Antonello Sticca, currently working on a cool redesign for the whole mag!
