Theatre and Performance

For me, shooting theatre and performance is a passion - I started my career over 25 years ago shooting in the theatre, on film!! and have since then established a reputation for capturing the colour, larger than life characters and emotion which only comes from the stage.

I love the unique challenges which the theatre presents - low light, fast moving subjects & no control over the action and usually shoot on dress or tech run - I can then provide a set of Front of House prints next day for opening night or supply the Production Company with digital files for print or web.

I regularly shoot for many of the leading companies in the South West and have worked at numerous theatres including: The Bristol Hippodrome, Bristol Theatre Royal and Old Vic Theatre School, Bath Theatre Royal and The Millennium Centre in Cardiff, Weston super Mare Summer Season, The Corn Exchange in Newbury as well as numerous local and provincial theatres.

I also shoot for several companies in advance of production dates to provide companies with publicity images, headshots and cast photos for programmes and marketing materials.
