Cinderella

December 15th, 2008 by Helen

This year’s Christmas production at the Lyric Hammersmith is Cinderella. It is a dark take on the popular fairytale – they are using the Brothers Grimm version of the story. I went to see the show on the opening weekend and I was very impressed – the set is amazing, the actors are brilliant and the story is very exciting and well told, if a little macabre. I have done both the rehearsal and production shots for this show. The production shots get sent out to the press and my images have been in Time Out, The Independent and lots of online theatre reviews

Here are a few of the photos:

Spring Awakening

November 10th, 2008 by Helen

I have recently taken some photographs for the upcoming production Spring Awakening that will be opening in January 2009 at the Lyric Hammersmith. I will be working with this production in the future, so keep an eye out for future blog entries. These photographs have been used in a lot of online theatre guides including Official London Theatre Guide, London Town.com and What’s on Stage.

Lucinda Millward

March 5th, 2008 by Helen

As part of my studio shoot with the make-up artist Christina Rose and the hair stylist Ken Madgin, I took some shots of the actress Lucinda Millward.

Lucinda is currently appearing to rave reviews in An English Tragedy at the Watford Palace. She trained at Guildhall School of Music & Drama, and has subsequently go one to star on stage in Touch, Alphabetical Order and IWitness at the Finborough Theatre. Lucinda’s television credits include the Bill, Doctors and Sensitive Skin which she starred in opposite Joanna Lumley.

Together we worked to create some striking image. In these two pictures Ken gave Lucinda a very cool, futuristic look that was enhanced by Christina’s imaginative eye make-up. I lit the images using coloured gels over the flashes. For more information please click on the images, and click again for an even larger photograph.
