Conservative Party Conference in Pictures

I was honoured to be invited to the annual Conservative Party Conference 2016 to photograph the event taking place in Birmingham. Amongst my best photographs are shots of the British Prime Minister, Theresa May, everyone’s favourite politician Boris Johnson and almost every senior Cabinet official.

Here are my best snaps from the CPC16:
