Most of these images were produced to accompany articles of some kind. Due to the nature of this editorial style of portraiture I rarely have the luxury of time. I am likely to find myself in a busy hotel suite filled with entourage or worse still a bland corporate office belonging to their agent or publisher. I'm no stranger to moving photocopiers or wheelie bins in order to create a nice backdrop.

Time is critical when shooting this type of portrait so learning to work quickly & efficiently becomes second nature. I can often find myself at the end of an interview with literally seconds to create an image.
