Regular client Innes Associates brought me in to photograph Alex Salmond who was donating a prize to a Cash for Kids charity auction. Mr Salmond, who was First Minister at the time, kindly agreed to stand for a portrait after the PR job was done. This took place shortly after the independence referendum of 2014 but while Mr Salmond was still in office –  a very interesting moment in time. I had a couple of days to think about the shot beforehand and Settled on a less-is-more approach with the plain background and simple lighting.
