Theatre Photography - Production images

Having built up considerable experience as a London theatre photographer, I consistently shoot striking, original images that capture the essence of leading West End musicals and theatre productions.

I was drawn to theatre photography by the challenge of recording the drama, emotion and spectacle of theatre in still photographs.

Over the years I have been responsible for live show photography for a number of London theatre companies, including Dreamworks, Michael McCabe Productions, Playful Productions, the National Youth Theatre, the Lyric Hammersmith and the Soho Theatre.

I have the technical skills to adapt to the demands of quick and dramatic lighting changes, and the necessary experience to anticipate key dramatic moments. This allows me to reliably produce striking, creative images suitable for glossy production brochures, show posters or press promotions.
