Hello,

Throughout March I have been lucky to photograph in theatres, stadiums and arenas witnessing some incredible moments and achieving important milestones! So without further ado, here is what I have been up to.

As I mentioned in my previous blog (Feat. Football), in February I started working with and shooting for Pro Sport Images, covering football matches for editorial publication. I am very happy to say I have been published on a number of occasions both in national and European press (see Tear Sheets). On the 16th March I achieved an important milestone in getting published on the back page of national newspaper, in The Guardian no less! Below are my publications for the night.

Earlier in the month I was at Sadler’s Wells photographing the visiting Ballet BC of British Columbia, Canada. We were treated to the work, 16 + a room choreographed by artistic director, Emily Molnar. The work was highly physical and presented some great photographic opportunities. Below is a collage of some of my favourite shots, but for the full gallery click here.

I was really excited to return to the Echo Arena, Liverpool for a second year to photograph the Artistic Gymnastics British Championships. This year we saw two new gymnasts crowned the All-Around British Champions. Kelly Simm of Dynamo School Of Gymnastics took the Women’s title and Brinn Bevan of South Essex Gymnastics Club took the Men’s title. I have made a page dedicated to the #2018British which you can view by clicking the link here. But here are a couple of my favourite shots below.

Lastly, I headed to Brixton Academy to photograph Feeder live. This was the first time photographing a music photography, so it was quite an eye opener! With live music, photographers are allowed to photograph a small number of songs (3-6 tracks) at the start of the band’s set. With this limited time photographer’s have to quickly capture an gallery’s worth of images. It was my first time shooting concert photography, but I happy with the images I came away with, and also very happy to see Feeder themselves shared one of my images!

Hello,

The start of the year has been very exciting. I am happy to announce that I have started working with Pro Sports Images, photographing editorial content for the press and on commission. I have photographed dance galleries at both Rambert and Sadler’s Wells, and I have had multi-talented musician, Alex Paton in the studio for a portrait shoot.

First off I headed to the Rambert studios to photograph In the Making 2018. This programme showcased 7 works choreographed by company dancers in addition to Rambert's choreographic fellow, Julie Cunningham. The performance also coincided with the Lumiere London festival. Rambert took part in the light festival collaborating with artist David Ward. David worked with the dancers photographing the soles of their feet creating the body of work, Light on Their Feet, which was projected on the side of Rambert HQ throughout the festival.

Next I was joined by Alex Paton in our home studio. Alex is a multi-talented musician who plays an array of instruments in addition to writing music for films and dance. Alex was a pleasure to work with, and we were all very happy with the results. Click here to see more from the shoot.

After, I was off to Sadler’s Wells for their annual Sadler’s Wells Sampled programme, which includes an eclectic mix of dance including the likes of Ballet, Contemporary through to Breaking and Flamenco.  It was a great opportunity to capture a range of dance styles in one evening.

Throughout February I have been attending and photographing at sports fixtures on behalf of Pro Sports Images. Currently I have been photographing Football games, covering Premier League through to League 2 games. It has been fantastic covering the national sport, and I am very happy to see my images being published in the press.
