Singers, dancers, actors, shows & stage
I have extensive live performance photography shooting experience having shot for example ex Strictly star Brendan Cole Stage shows for four years, for his advertising and printed show literature, alongside promotion with social media. Published in the nationals. Shooting With the minimum of fuss and minimum audience viewing impact alongside grabbing the optimum moment in performance photography
I also shoot with singers and dancers who want to have album covers and sleeves for personal & promotional purposes to get noticed properly via standard shots and high end modeling shots to extend their appeal past the entertainment world they are currently in.

A small gallery of singers, dancers and performances
I work with a lot of singers and songwriters, established and new.
Shooting editorial style and fashion to grab attention.
I mainly shoot for PR companies
I also shoot freelance for other musicians.
From operatic sopranos to indie I cover all bases and styles getting published along the way.
I have captured many professional dancers with a majority of shows with Strictly Come Dancing fame with Anton Debeke & Erin Boag, Karen & Kevin Clifton, Ola & James Jordan, Brendan Cole, Aliona Viali, Kristina Rihanhoff & Robin Windsor, Fauve Hautot, Giulia Dotta, and many more UK top dance professionals.
Stage, studio, and on location.
Shot in many amazing Theatre, stage shows, festivals and events with music and dance for many years. The Palladium, Theatre Royal, Eastbourne, Brighton, Guildford, Wolverhampton, Corn exchange, and multiple London venues.
I always shoot in a non impact way with a long lens to keep out of the audiences view and to have near zero impact on the performance but still retain the atmosphere and get those perfect shots.
The model angle
This happens quite a lot now when artists and dancers have to diversify to diversify from their normal genre to be seen more photographically to promote themselves away from their everyday profession but in alignment so as not to distract from their original intentions.
Dancers are already very aligned to modeling with a core where posing comes naturally . This can apply to singers and with a little direction to get some great results.
