Editorial shoot for The Independent on Saturday Magazine.

A couple of weeks ago, on a cold wet Saturday morning, I joined the Yorkshire members of the anti-monarchy group, ‘Republic’, as they handed out leaflets trying to convince January sale bargain hunters to join their cause – the demise of the monarchy. It’s fair to say they got a pretty positive response from the good folk of Leeds, that said, my particular favorite was the father who, having handed a leaflet back to one of the campaigners, turned to his young son and said, “Now that’s what you call a tosser”. Not long after that, the group adjourned to the pub, ironically called The Queen Victoria, to discuss their strategy for the year and drink warm beer!

The shoot was part of a feature on the Republic, published in last weekend’s ‘The Independent on Saturday Magazine’; it got a great show with one of my photo’s used as the lead over two pages. I’ve included a few more images from the day…
