Big Issue Invest – Staff Portraits

I recently had the opportunity to take some head shots of staff from the Big Issue Invest (BII) which is the social investment arm of The Big Issue.

Through Chocolate Films (a social enterprise that BII has invested in), I photographed new staff members around Vauxhall bridge, which isn’t to far from their head office. Each staff member had a photo with a Big issue in hand for the staff section of the BII website and one without, which is for internal use.

Portraits for Journalist Rahul Verma

I had the opportunity to shoot some portraits of journalist Rahul Verma for his brand new website.

Rahul has written for publications such as The Guardian, Metro, The Independent, Vice, MixMag to name a few. See more of his work here.

Rahul wanted to have his portraits in a few different locations.

We started off at Brixton market, aiming to capture Rahul amongst the vibrancy and busyness that this place offers.

We then moved onto the Southbank Centre and the Queen Elizabeth Hall.

Rahul does a lot of work here, so it was great to capture him in an area full of arts and culture, but one which is also effortlessly photographic due to its Brutalist architecture.
