Here’s a shot of popular classical singer Katherine Jenkins taken in February 2004. I’d been commissioned last minute to photograph the Welsh born singer prior to the release of her first album at The Hilton Hotel in Cardiff by The Western Mail. It appears that even at the time of commissioning I was already an hour late. I’m not sure how but there had been a mix up over timings and Katherine and her manager had been left waiting in the hotel. I still had half an hours travel time and needed to get parked up in the city so by the time I arrived the understandably upset manager had already been on the phone to the desk several times. 
So my first task was to pacify them and convince them that the delay wasn’t down to me. The Penthouse suite had been set aside for photography and we proceeded up in the lift. Somehow the tension eased during the journey and Katherine couldn’t have been more obliging although we still had to work quickly as their time was now running out.
I needed to think fast on my feet and after a couple of more traditional posed shots I noticed the glass top of the table. The reflection seemed the obvious solution to finding something a little different.
