London Philharmonic Orchestra

A few weeks ago over two fun sunny days at Glyndebourne we shot portraits of nearly all the members of the London Philharmonic Orchestra – in the hour just before the performance and during the interval. We had just a few minutes with each. These photos are now online on the LPO’s website alongside the players’ biographies.

Harry Christophers / The Sixteen

It was a real treat to photograph Harry Christophers and The Sixteen on Wednesday at LSO St Luke’s for Albion Media.

They were rehearsing and performing three new Stabat Maters commissioned by the Genesis Foundation from composers Alissa Firsova, Tõnu Kõrvits and Matthew Martin.
