Editorial photography commission of UK Prime Minister Theresa May outside No.10 Downing street for the launch of centenary poppy appeal.
Ahead of Sunday 11th November I was commissioned to take editorial photographs of the UK Prime Minister with WWII veteran Barbara Weatherill. Sunday November 11 marks 100 years since the end of the First World War. Thousands of volunteers will help sell and distribute paper poppies in the following days.
To help launch the poppy appeal Theresa May came onto the steps of No.10 Downing Street to start this years poppy campaign. I was commissioned to capture the moment.
Early Photo assignment at National Maritime Museum
An early start. Before meeting the Prime Minister I was commissioned to catch the early light and take editorial photographs of a six-metre-high poppy installation in Greenwich. Arriving at 6am it was a clear glorious morning. The installation was unveiled in the grounds of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich. Marking the launch of the charity campaign and say thank you to the First World War generation.
As the light began to surface I adjusted my tripod and camera settings to find the best angle. The shot below both captures the best light and places the installation to Greenwich Maritime museum.
