The Hampton Collection

Last month we have the pleasure of introducing the Frank Clegg London Portrait Series we shot in and around the UK's capital. We teamed up with London Photographer Jamie Ferguson. Jamie was born in Toronto, Canada but has been based in London, UK, for the last 5 years. His work has been featured in publications saincluding Manolo.se, Permanent Style, The Financial Times' How To Spend It, Mens Health UK and Plaza Uomo.
