The First Minister
Shortly after the Scottish independence referendum in September of 2014 I was asked by Nicola Sturgeon’s team to join them on a tour of Scotland. Political engagement was at an all time high in Scotland and Nicola Sturgeon was set to become leader of the SNP and the first female First Minister of Scotland. Nicola expressed a desire for openness and transparency. As part of this I was given unprecedented access to photograph Nicola on this campaign tour with the idea of delivering honest and authentic images showing the mood of the day. Nicola was becoming something of a rockstar in Scotland and as she gained in popularity the campaigns grew ever greater. I was asked to stay on and capture it all.

This is a selection of images from my time with The First Minister and her team between 2014 and 2018.
