Arts, Theatre, Music and Dance Photography is not limited to end performances on stage. Workshops, Arts related education and training events, rehearsals, full stage productions, complete production documentation and other arts related areas are covered.
As well as the usual ticket, programme and project documentation side of the photography, there is also the Press and PR production and preparation of photographs.
Documenting programs and workshops is an ideal way to show current and potential sponsors and funding bodies the charting and progress of a project.
The background slideshow details some recent examples of working with arts and entertainment projects and programmes, in both a documentary and pr way.
For four years I was Ireland correspondent for Wireimage (the entertainment division of Getty Images), the worlds largest entertainment image archive. Covering music, celebrity and red carpet events throughout the island of Ireland before setting up my own agency Radharcimages.
Recently I have staged an exhibition of Dance Photography in the Ulster Hall for Dance United Northern Ireland’s international seminar. This has proved invaluable to assessors and raising the profile of Dance within education.
Based just outside Belfast in Northern Ireland and I am happy to travel all over Northern Ireland, the Republic of Ireland and the UK.
All photography unless requested is documented in a ‘fly on the wall’ style where little or no interaction takes place between the photographer and the performers with little distraction to the on stage choreography and schedules. This allows the flow of the pieces to continue and the dancers to retain focus. The majority of photography takes place in the phases up to performance. I generally tend to avoid photographing actual performances because people have paid in to see the show, not the back of a photographers head! That and the limitations of sitting in one place or limited access don’t allow me to fully express the range of photography I can produce for you.
Full stage reconstructions and studio representations can be arranged if required.
Stock photography work for programmes, backdrops, slideshows and AV productions is also available. Click here for the stock photography section.
