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.
