Britain’s Got Talent Star Beau Dermott is poised for West End Superstardom. The young singer who already in talks about making her London stage debut has been showered with praise by some of the biggest names in musical theatre.
I received a call from Beau’s parents this week who arranged a portrait sitting for Beau’s first headshots at the Liverpool Studio. The photoshoot was The Star’s first professional sitting.
Beau is no stranger to being in front of the camera, no doubt from her amazing stage performances on Britains’ got talent. Breezing through the headshot session I was able to direct Beau with ease to capture a series of wonderful frames.
Cellist Jonathan Dormond arranged a sitting at the Liverpool Studio, being a classical performer Jonathan needed a portfolio of photography for his online professional listings. As a photographer, I offer a wide range of services for musicians, whether you are a classical musician, an opera singer or even a conductor. Covering the North West UK, Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, and London.
Pianist Hywel, booked a Portrait Session at the Liverpool Studio, needing a portrait for his website, and online presence. Hywel requested a natural portrait, working over a 45 minute session we captured several frames which really illustrate Hywel’s outgoing personality.
My client, the beautiful and talented singer Nikki Belle commissioned me to shoot her latest Promotional Photography at the Liverpool studio this week.
I’ve been working with Nikki for several years now and the photos just keep getting better and better. Nikki’s sister also a professional model posed in a few of the sets and the images really stand out! I’m looking forward to working with her again in the near future.
If you are an artist or Musician looking for Photographyfor your promotion, an editorial or even an album cover I have a number of options, so please keep me in mind.
Reading the newspaper today I was quit disturbed to find CanonNikon and Olympus are facing stiff competition from Sony who are producing professional SLR cameras without Mirror lenses.
Sony has designed a translucent replacement, ideal for super fast focusing and using instead fully digitized displays. What this means in layman’s terms is that traditional optical viewfinders will be taken away, and a computer inside your camera will now tell you what your image looks like before you take it. Removing more of the creative process away from the photographer. The photographer won’t be able to look through the lens with their naked eye using his or her own intuition and creative skill.
I believe that advances of this kind aren’t advances at all, it takes away the creativity and removing mirror lenses is a big blow.
In terms of my work I seem to be going backwards, although a photographer who utilises digital SLR cameras. I am using more and more film on personal projects, and will shortly be introducing packages were clients can request film shoots rather than digital….. Ok Rant over.
Last week I completed a shoot for Adam Kaufman singer, who performs a great deal of swing and Rat Pack music. Inspired by shots of Frank Sinatra from the 50’s and 60’s. I wanted Adam to look effortlessly cool in his images; Frank Sinatra seemed to pull off this look in a great deal of his shots and I think we achieved this in Adam’s photos. I didn’t want to use any airbrushing in the shots; all that has been done is a simple B&W conversion.
