Rehearsal Room

London musicians, new portrait photography series:

This week sees the launch of my new portrait photography series, capturing musicians practising outdoors across urban spaces in London. Not everyone wants to live next-door to someone who plays the double bass, the trumpet - or any large and loud instrument for that matter. 

This consideration certainly forces musicians to get creative about their rehearsal space, which increasingly includes outdoor spaces. Studio rents are rising enormously for all creatives, especially in London, as old buildings get sold for office spaces and other developments. With rehearsal spaces becoming more expensive, some musicians use public spaces and parks to get in some of their rehearsal hours. 

I spent the summer finding some of the musicians, who are utilising the corners of parks, tucked away basketball courts and forgotten patches of grass between tower blocks to get their essential practice hours.

The warmer summers, squeeze on creative space and increasing population density all contributes to this growing phenomenon, which has resulted in a really unique set of portraits.
