One of my favourite jobs last year as a London Musicians Photographer was photographing a wonderful violinist, Non. We met up at the Southbank, London – a famous place for musicians – and took some lovely portraits, with and without violin. Not only is Non beautiful, she is also an extremely talented violinist and such a laugh that even Batman came to join in the fun at the end, as you’ll see!
The Southbank is a perfect spot to photograph musicians as they often feel very relaxed and at home in the area, with the Royal Festival Hall, the Queen Elizabeth Hall and the Purcell Room all close by and very familiar to most musicians. It is also a fantastic location for any kind of photography session because of the endless different colourful backgrounds. There is of course the famous Skateboard Park next to the River Thames, with walls full of graffiti which make stunning backdrops. But there are also less obvious places that work really well too. One example is in the first image which was photographed in a concrete corridor close to the Imax Cinema. The wall behind Non has a light shining on it, that keeps changing colour, so you can get a variety of different looks in just one location. In this image I thought the green worked particularly well with Non’s eyes.
If you’d like to book a musicians photography session, in any area of London, please do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org or 07813 816335. I’ll look forward to creating some fantastic images for you to use in all your publicity.
