Actors & Musicians

I now offer a location photography service for film production at all levels and specialise in non obtrusive, in-situ shots of cast and crew members ranging from strait-forward available light head shots to action, continuity and dramatic interpretation shots. I am also very keen to work with live performing musicians and bands. I have a particular interest in raw camera craft and generally prefer to work without any additional lighting or flash.

Since the mid 80s I have been involved in many aspects of the film, TV, advertising and music recording industries and very much at home on set or working with musicians. Fully aware of the pressures and demands of filming and creative performance - in other words, I am pretty good at not spoiling anyone's vibe or being a nuisance on location.

A very receptive state of mind --- not unlike a sheet of film itself - seemingly inert, yet so sensitive that a fraction of a second's exposure conceives a life in it." Minor White Art Photography pioneer c 1950
