Live / performance photography, Edinburgh / Scotland

As a performer, you want high-quality professional shots of your performance.

Music, theatre, dance - I'm experienced in all aspects of performance photography and know how to get the shots which capture the mood as well as the action.

With professional performance photography equipment and lenses, you - and your audience - won't know I'm there. I know when to wait for the right moment to take the shots and use powerful zoom lenses to ensure I can still get up close to the action, even from the back of the venue.

Live music is a speciality - whether it's the 'first three songs in the pit' or a complete record of your set, I can provide shots which capture the energy and passion on stage, with all band members and performers captured in great-looking shots.

What to expect:
If possible, I'll get to the venue early to find a place to set up - out of the way of the audience and without getting in anyone's way.

Depending on the event's regulations, I'll either capture as many shots as possible during the shooting window; or shoot throughout the performance. In both cases, I know when to anticipate action, poses and moods which result in great shots of your show.

What you'll get:
Within 72 hours of the event (48 or 24 hours tunraround available at a small additional fee), you'll receive access to a password-protected website containing proofs (unprocessed images) of the shoot. On average, there will be around 100 of these, depending on the length of the window and performance.

You will choose up to 20 shots you like (additional shots can be chosen for a small additional fee).

I'll then process these to your instructions (e.g. black & white, retouching, etc) and make your shots available online for you to download.

All shots will be made available in high-resolution, suitable for printing at sizes up to 10x8 inches or for the web.

Additional sizes and resolutions (e.g. for publication / print) can be provided on request.

My fee will depend on location and length of performance. Live photography services are available outside Edinburgh for an additional fee. Prices start from £50. Please contact me to discuss details and I can provide you with a quote by return.
