An interesting day photographing Ed Miliband in The Opposition’s offices, we found the Labour party leader as relaxed as he’s going to get.
A different challenge this one breaking down the political stereotype safety net of acceptable poses, amongst a constant buzzing of yes men chirping in my ear whilst shooting.
Amongst all the riff-raff, Ed Miliband is a proper gent, you just need a chainsaw to get there.
