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.

Neymar - Advertising

Recent advertising photography shoot for BBH Shanghai. We were tasked with capturing images of Neymar for huguley popular Chinese beer brand Harbin. The portrait images will be used across China in a range of forms from social to point of sale. As ever a very tight schedule (and an injured ankle) called for some lateral thinking. We shot a number of excursions from traditional sports portraits to more lifestyle photography. Below is are some of the final images, one of the final pieces of artwork, a small behind the scenes time-lapse and some behind the scenes images.

 Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior, commonly known as Neymar Jr. or simply Neymar, is a Brazilian professional footballer who plays as a forward for French club Paris Saint-Germain and the Brazil national team.

BTS with Benefit

A recent studio lifestyle shoot for Benefit Cosmetics as part of their new product launch on their Hoola range. We handled all aspects of the shoot production in-house. Working with some of the UK’s biggest influencers we designed a two set shoot plan, allowing us to quickly jump from our tropical jungle setup to a simpler, cleaner plain pink background. Below are some of the final images, some behind the scene images from the shoot day as well as our original scamp for the concept. The images have been rolled out across a number of assets including in-store.

Orange, France

I recently went over to Paris to shoot for Orange. The feature was on a startup called Foodles, which delivers fresh food every morning into ‘smart’ fridges that can be purchased by businesses for their staff. We spent a day at Foodle’s HQ and shot images showing all aspects of their business operation. We used people from the company on the shoot, including the CEO. As a lifestyle photographer the companies HQ provided a great space to achive some wonderful clean images.

Potrero Hill

Shot on San Francisco’s Potrero Hill, here are a few more images from my recent Athleisure shoot. We chose the location because it provided a strong sense of place with great views across the city, as well as vibrant colours from the mural which we used as a graphic backdrop. Shooting in high temperatures with strong harsh sunlight, we scrimmed the sun and bounced in available to fill. As a lifestyle photographer more used to working in London the heat make a pleasant change.

Simon Webbe

Here are a selection of portrait images from a recent shoot with Simon Webbe. Shot with a mix of continuous light and flash, these were taken in a central London studio not far from Oxford Street.

Ocean Beach

Here are a few images from a recent Athleisure shoot in San Francisco. We had a reccy day to scope out the best sites and shot these images on Ocean Beach to the west side of the city. Overlooking Seal Rocks, the shots were taken in the early morning, so that the beach would be relatively quiet. As a lifestyle photographer you can’t beat the light on the west coast.

Pacifica

Here are some images of surfers which I took for a personal project in Pacifica beach, California. We headed out there early in the morning, on a weekday, to make sure we caught the real enthusiasts. We scrimmed the light and shot in the surf using the shallow water as a bounce. As a sports portrait photographer is was wonderful to encounter the laid back California attitude - everyone was really laid back and willing to pose..
