Editorial Photojournalism for The Times, November 2012
By Paul Rogers
As mentioned before, I’m one of five contract photographers at The Times newspaper, along with four staff photographers, and at the end of each month, we all submit three of our favourite images from that month for an internal competition – three are then chosen for display on the editorial floor at The Times. Over time, as budgets dictate, we have been shooting less daily breaking news photography, and concentrate instead on portraits and features.
So this month’s selection include portraits of Lord Saatchi and Prime Minister David Cameron in his office at 10 Downing Street. It’s the second time I’ve photographed Cameron in his office and having learnt last time that 20 seconds for the portrait at the end of an interview is a long time, I made the most of the 10 seconds this time. Though I did still crop his left hand off in the rush to focus the f/1.2 lens on his eyeball.
