Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme – Headshots

Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme – Headshots

I was commissioned to take new headshots for the team at the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme. The director was keen to get some photos at the front of the Divinity School, as the entrance doors are decorated with writings in various faiths’...

Light Matter – Final Composite Image

Light Matter – Final Composite Image

At the end of the second CCD photoshoot, I took turns with each dancer to get shots of them leaping in different poses and places, with the idea of putting together a specific image that I had in mind. I was hoping to play on two meanings of the word “Light”, in the dance show’s title. Firstly, the dancers are depicted as light things, as they float in...

Photoshoot with Jenny

Photoshoot with Jenny

After the second Cambridge Contemporary Dance photoshoot at the Senate House, I went with one if the dancers into Trinity College for a photoshoot. I’d photographed a CCD dance show, Impressions, in the first location (the columns under the Wren Library), so knew that it would be a great location for some photos. I love photographing dancers as models, as they...

Senate House Dance Photoshoot #2

Senate House Dance Photoshoot #2

A few days after the first Cambridge Contemporary Dance photoshoot, a second shoot had been scheduled at the Senate House. We’d learned from the earlier shoot that “light”, leaping photos looked good, and the main door of the Senate House made for a striking and identifiable background. I took several more leaping shots on the grass, with the idea of compositing...

Senate House Dance Photoshoot #1

Senate House Dance Photoshoot #1

The Cambridge Contemporary Dance company are putting on a show in December as part of Cambridge University’s 800th anniversary celebration year. The show has the rare privilege of taking place in the Senate House, the university’s main ceremonial building. The show is called “Light Matter”, so a couple of the ideas played with the weightless connotation of...

Portraits of Stockholm

Portraits of Stockholm

After my travels through the forests and lakes in Sweden, I found myself in Stockholm with no cash and a few hours to kill. Having already visited Stockholm the previous year, I didn’t feel I need to do any rushed sight-seeing, and knew my way around a bit. After an hour of walking around, it struck me how strongly so many people have similar facial features – the...

Sweden – Forests & Lakes

Sweden – Forests & Lakes

For the third summer in a row, I travelled to Sweden for an intensive dance workshop. Unfortunately, I sustained an injury in the fortnight before flying out that rendered me unable to take part. Not one to waste an opportunity (or a non-refundable flight), I hired a car and drove around the myriad forests and lakes in South-Eastern Sweden for 4 days. In addition to a dozen or so...

Fun with Friends

Fun with Friends

I enjoyed the recent sunshine at a friend’s house, with a few other friends. Needless to say, some of them were actors, so wanted to try to get a few headshots in case any were usable for Spotlight. And of course one of my favourite muses, Sarah, was there, and I’m always happy to photograph her. Crashing a headshot photoshoot – great result...
