Performance Photography

Performance Photography

Photographing both music and travel, huge passions of mine, were my entrance point into photography. Whilst my chops on the guitar left much to be desired, my artistic leanings, presence and drive saw me forge a more successful bond with my cameras.

I cut my teeth on the London gig circuit covering shows for The Fly and thisisfakeDIY magazines and british news agency London News Pictures for a number of years, before a golden opportunity arose to work with leading agency Rex (Features) Shutterstock as their chief music photographer.

I cover the most important shows and events for Rex, be they the big names at London’s stadiums & arenas or hot artists breaking through, my annual pilgrimage to Glastonbury Festival, and London Fashion Week. I also work directly with artists, record labels and management companies.
I love the challenge of needing to capture the most powerful, dynamic and likely unrepeatable moments of any performance, be that music, fashion, or anything else such as sport.    Miss it and the moment is lost. 

I attribute my success to razor sharp focus, the ability to anticipate movements before they happen, great camera skills and fine coffee.  I would be happy to work with you and your talent collaboratively & contribute ideas to the process, or simply photograph them doing what they best and capture stunning images.
