Chief Exec of WM Housing Kevin Rodgers

With not much more than a generic office building on the edge of Birmingham and a car park to work with, I wasn’t holding out much hope when I arrived. After shooting the interview inside I had had about 20 minutes to come up with a selection of quality editorial pictures that were suitable for the magazine article. Once we had discussed football and politics the light was perfect enough outside to slightly darken the background so I could isolate Kevin from his environment, and white van had had parked in the background.

Editor was happy again “Thanks Ed, A lovely selection to choose from.”
