Tim and Kit Kemp for Vanity Fair

At the end of last year I had the pleasure of being commissioned by Vanity Fair to photograph Tim and Kit Kemp, the husband and wife team behind the Firmdale Hotels and in particular this location, the Ham Yard Hotel in London's West End. I had a quick location scout the day before and decided on two locations which would provide the best backdrops and then set-up and shot them in a 20 minute window. Above is the final image as it ran, and below was an alternative we shot on the roof terrace.
