Photographing Musicians – Part 1

Musicians have a reputation for being a temperamental bunch, but the ones I get to work with are an absolute joy.

It rained and the temperature just hit three degrees above freezing, but I have endless respect for Leah and Celeste who managed to look effortlessly chic and biker-chick (respectively).

Leah runs the incredible Blue Flamingo Entertainments, who I can’t recommend highly enough for any function – yes, I’m biased, they played at my own wedding last year.

Celeste Cronje-Richardson is not only a Royal Academy of Music graduate and wonderful soprano, but also the only person I’ve ever seen manage to pull off a concert dress and leather jacket…

Part 2 will be a behind-the-scenes look at the shoot, with a few more photos of both Leah and Celeste, as well as some shots of me in action. I’ll also explain the thought process and planning behind some of the images.
