London Musicians Photographer – Diana – Southbank

Posted by & filed under Musicians.

As a London Musicians and Family Photographer I have been lucky enough to spend a lot of my time photographing at the Southbank along the River Thames. It’s one of my favourite parts of London for so many reasons. It has such a vibrant feel about it, there are so many famous landmarks along the way and an abundance of interesting, colourful backdrops – what’s not to like?

When Diana got in touch about having some musicians publicity shots taken I suggested the Southbank as one possibility and she was immediately taken with the idea. Diana is a wonderful viola player and pianist and wanted a variety of images taken to use for some upcoming projects for her solo viola and piano work.

We met at the Festival Hall, which seemed quite a fitting place to start and also has the advantage of being nice and close to the famous skateboard park. I can never go to this area of London without visiting this place. It works so well for photos – the graffiti constantly changes and makes such a fun background for all the images. We then moved around the Southbank, finding different backgrounds and looks for the shots. Diana also had some outfit changes, which is always a good idea if the photos are going to be used for different projects. Diana was lovely to work with, so easy going and fun, so I really tried to reflect this in the images. I was also lucky enough to hear her wonderful viola playing. I always try and get some images of the musician playing and I have to be honest I tend to let them play a little longer than needed as it’s just such a treat to listen!

After a couple of hours I was happy with the wide variety of images we had created so we called it a day. When the editing was finished and I sent the photos back to Diana I was delighted to hear that she was overjoyed with the images.
