I had the opportunity to photograph at Tom Aikens restaurant the other day. Newly refurbished with a very modern and quite different style to how it looked previously, it was a bold expression of a strong personality.
It also made for a great opportunity to shoot some fresh portraits of Tom Aiken himself. Having photographed him once before at Tom's Kitchen the restaurant on Elystan street was a real opportunity to shoot something a little different. The Brasserie had been a stark white, slightly clinical, however his newly refurbished restaurant had a warmth to it that I wanted to portray in the pictures.
