25 years in the classical music industry as a record producer has given me a deep insight into the sensitivities of performers and I aim to bring that out in my images, whether it is a moment of calm composure or artistic anguish. My clients range from individual performers to symphony orchestras and I have built up strong relationships with many of the UK’s top concert halls through the use of specially prepared silent and remote controlled cameras - especially the X System from Fuji.
This is balanced by a lifelong love of black & white imagery that is now finding a voice in the form of infra red photography. Using a specially modified Fuji X-E1 I capture scenes entirely composed of invisible infra red light, producing an alternative view of reality – beyond visible light.
I also run workshops and seminars throughout the world with Magic-Is Photo Safaris and with Create-Away
