After a gloriously hot summer, late August brought dramatic skies and storms to London. The light on this particular evening was quite something, lending an ominous feel to the sky over the Palace of Westminster. I struck it lucky on this particular shoot, although it wasn’t without risk to my medium format gear. Spectacular as they are, storm clouds by their nature will dispose of their contents at some point. Sure enough, the heavens opened and I was somewhat fraught until I was back in the studio, checking the camera was still functioning, as it’s really designed for the studio, not a soggy street.
