Low Key Ongoing project of studio photos of musicians playing or singing a tune or improvising in a major key and a minor key. Shot in low key/film noir style.
Using Old Hollywood style lighting, the subject is photographed like a product. to construct an idealised image. Incremental changes in expression and angle convey contrasting personalities and moods, erasing the subject’s personality in favour of an ideal that is an artificial façade. While one genuine smile breaks the illusion entirely
My London event photography captures impromptu moments and candid reactions where subjects are at their most relaxed and authentic. I work with discretion and am unobtrusive so as to ensure natural images that preserve the atmosphere event organisers have endeavoured to create. After each assignment, I complete basic edits/touch ups on the images to ensure the photographs are of the optimum standard for future marketing, documentary, social media and company website use. With high-end cameras, a range of lenses and years of experience taking photos in multiple lighting conditions the finished work demonstrates the high standard that clients have come to expect from my work. I’ve photographed seminars & conferences, corporate dinners and meetings, as well as covering the Stoke Newington Literary Festival, Hackney Singers Concerts (also at the Royal Festival Hall), events at the Houses of Parliament, and family occasions, such as weddings, funerals and birthday parties. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring me at 07814 823 780 to discuss dates and rates.
I consider it a privilege to be invited to participate in your intimate event in London. I shoot reportage or “fly-on-the-wall” documentary style photos, using natural light wherever possible to capture the moments. Traditional photos as needed, although my “focus” is on the style you see here Standard package starts at £699 and includes four 8x10s and forty 7x5 prints. Expect to choose your favourites from a few hundred images. Please get in touch to discuss this type of bespoke wedding photography.
