I started working in theatre photography by chance. When asked by a friend if I’d be interested in photographing a rehearsal I jumped at the opportunity. Since then it’s taken me all over the UK and into all kinds of different situations. Because of these opportunities, I’ve met and worked with many amazing people. I love the diversity and challenge of production photography and being involved in the theatre in general. Every practitioner in the theatre brings something unique to them, I hope this includes me.
I’ve always found theatre production photography extremely rewarding. It requires skills and motivation that fit very well with the way I like to work. Essentially, it is documentary photography but in tricky and wildly varied lighting.
I’m primarily a production/rehearsal photographer but have also been asked to make images for promotional material. This page also contains examples of photographs I’ve made in this vein. You can view this type of work here
Some of the theatre companies I’ve been lucky enough to work with
Citizens Theatre, The Royal Lyceum, Scottish Opera, National Theatre of Scotland, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, The Tron, The Traverse, Vanishing point, Grid Iron, Birds of Paradise, TAG, Vox Motus, Sweetscar, Magnetic North, Grinagog, Fire Exit, Ankur productions & GIANT.
Here are some examples of the productions I’ve had the good fortune to photograph. These examples have “See more” links to posts that contain more images. I Hope you enjoy looking as much as I enjoyed taking them!

If you are interested in my theatre photography but are unsure, here are a few things to think about. I don’t do complicated rules regarding usage rights – If I’m commissioned to take the photographs, you have the right to use them to promote your show/company indefinitely. I try to be as unobtrusive as possible during rehearsals, only getting involved when asked to do set up photos. Please do get in touch with any questions or give me a phone on 07879 470 353.
