In rehearsal: The Braille Legacy

Publicity and rehearsal shots for new musical The Braille Legacy, which opens at the Charing Cross Theatre next week.

The show follows the story of Louis Braille, a blind boy who revolutionised the lives of the blind with his invention of a tactile alphabet.



Counting Stars

Advertising, rehearsal and production shots for the hilarious and thought-provoking (in equal measure) Counting Stars at the Theatre Royal Stratford East.

The show, which follows two nightclub toilet attendants with dreams through Valentine’s Day night, runs to 17 September.



Playing with shadows

These were fun to shoot.

Forthcoming new play It Is Easy To Be Dead at the Finborough looks at the life of poet Charles Sorley, who was among the first to sign up to fight in World War I and died a year later.

For the advertising shots of star Alexander Knox, I wanted to focus more…



In The Bar of a Tokyo Hotel

Advertising, poster and production photos from Tennessee Williams’ rarely performed In The Bar of a Tokyo Hotel at the Charing Cross Theatre, starring the legendary Linda Marlowe.

If you want to see the show, you have just over a week left.  The final performance is on 14 May.



Henry V returns

Publicity shots of the wonderful Freddie Stewart and Floriane Andersen, shot for the forthcoming tour of Antic Disposition’s World-War-I-based take on Shakespeare’s Henry V.

The tour begins in London on 26 March before visiting some of the nation’s great cathedrals, before bowing out at the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon.



Opera Noir

Rehearsal photos usually look very bright, very white, and very floaty.  But sometimes the venue just doesn’t want to play ball and you end up with something rather pleasantly different.

So, publicity shots and tremendously film-noir style rehearsal photos for the forthcoming opera play, Dress Rehearsal, which opens at the OSO Arts…



I Loved Lucy

Super-saturated publicity and rehearsal shots for playwright Lee Tannen’s I Loved Lucy, based on his memoir of his time with Lucille Ball.

 

The show, which comes to the Jermyn Street Theatre next month, stars Sandra Dickinson and Matthew Bunn, and promises to be a blast.



Slummin’ it

So last week I had the pleasure of shooting Sheila Hancock and Jenna Russell for Grey Gardens at the Southwark Playhouse.  But with a twist.

The brief was to make it all look like bad 70s snaps.  Well, assuming your name’s not Juergen Teller, that’s quite a big ask.  The risk is that you don’t just end up…



Tiny Timple

I’m having a puns week, so you’ll forgive the title.

Antic Disposition’s wonderful Christmas Carol returns to the Middle Temple Hall next month for a strictly limited run from 22 to 30 December.

We pottered around the Temple with stars David Burt and David Hunter earlier this month in search of climes Dickensian…



Always take the feather with you

When we sat down to talk about the poster for World War I musical The White Feather (coming to the Union in September), we knew three things.

It was going to have a feather in it.  It was going to be shot in studio.  And we were going to shoot it for real.

Well, sometimes photoshoots evolve…
