Lomography Photos in King’s College

Lomography Photos in King’s College

I had coffee with my friend Ellie, whom I had photographed a few times for the Cambridge Ballerina Project, as well as some fashion photos. It was such a rare sunny day that we did a mini-photoshoot, with my trusty iPhone; and Ellie is a big fan of...

Dance in Focus – Exhibition

Dance in Focus – Exhibition

The morning after the Canada Day celebrations in Trafalgar Square, I had a client meeting in London’s Angel Building, so I stayed in town and checked out the Dance in Focus exhibition in City Hall. It features photographs taken during a two day dance photography workshop run by Chris Nash that I attended in May. Two of my photographs feature in the exhibition, which runs...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Zoe & Gabrielle

This was the fourth Cambridge Ballerina Project shoot in a week, all queued up waiting for the weather to improve. Zoe was also in this year’s show, and has a twin sister Gabrielle visiting from New Zealand. Both are equally well-trained ballet dancers, so a twin shoot presented great opportunities for symmetric poses. See the rest of the photos from this shoot...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Yi Yi

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Yi Yi

Yi Yi is another dancer new to the Cambridge University Ballet Club, whose abilities shone in the show this year. As with Ana‘s shoot, the weather and exams prevented our shooting together until the day before she left Cambridge for the summer. Luckily, after weeks of rain and cold, the weather suddenly warmed up, so we arranged a dawn shoot so we could shoot in town without...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Kizzie

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Kizzie

Kizzie is the new president of the Cambridge University Ballet Club, and while that doesn’t automatically lead to a Cambridge Ballerina Project shoot (Lara, Hanna and Helen have all been on the committee), Kizzie did shine in this year’s show. She’s a student at Robinson College, one which I had not yet photographed for the Project, and it is almost entirely made...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Ana

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Ana

I noticed Ana at the barre during a ballet class taken by Glory, and was keen to arrange a shoot with her. Weather and availability conspired against us, so we ended up having to shoot on the day before Ana’s last exam, in windy overcast conditions. Not that you’d notice from Ana’s composure. See the rest of the photos from this shoot...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Claire

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Claire

I photographed Claire in the very first shoot of the Cambridge Ballerina Project two years ago. After months of cold and rain, the Summer finally reached Cambridge, so it’s fitting that Claire was the first shoot of this summer too. See more shoots from the Cambridge Ballerina Project on...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Lara

Lara is president of the CU Ballet club this year, and produced the annual ballet show, Cinderella. As she is a student at Girton college, it was an obvious choice of  location for our shoot. More...

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Suzie

Cambridge Ballerina Project – Suzie

A second photoshoot with Suzie, this year’s lead dancer in the Cambridge University Ballet show. The weather was surprisingly warm and sunny given the cold winter, so we headed out to a bright urban location, Cambridge’s new West Cambridge...
