I was secretly quite pleased when I arrived at the Shard early one morning for a shoot, in thick fog. I was there to meet lighting designer, Tom Kirk, to shoot some of his creations in the east facing private dining rooms at AquaShard, and I knew that the weather conditions that morning would make my life a whole lot easier. However, as we emerged from the lift on the 33rd floor, we discovered that the fog was below us and the sun was blazing into the restaurant. The worst possible conditions! Potentially all burnt out highlights and deep black shadows, but we managed to work around it, and the results were quite dramatic.
And here are some other pieces I’ve shot for Tom.
