This is just a fence post

Last year I was commissioned by Getty Images to produce a set of portraits for Beazley and the British Fencing team and this year they invited me back to cover their last year of sponsorship event at Mansion House in London.

It was yet another venue where I couldn't really lose. Every room and every angle was extremely grand and lent itself perfectly to the clean white suits.

Each athlete was a true gentleman but being as they were holding swords I made sure I was very polite when directing them.

I was the only photographer covering this and that gave me freedom to wander around this stunning place and capture some behind the scenes images which always add to the set. 

Mansion House is actually the residence of the Lord Mayor and if you're reading this, Sir I'm sorry I used the last of the toilet roll in your en suite.
