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.

Guitarist Christoph Denoth: new CD and website
Cover image from shoot at 33 Portland Place in February 2014
Wigmore Hall Live CD covers so far
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.
I recently had the pleasure of working with the wonderful classical guitarist Christoph Denoth http://www.christophdenoth.com/en/index_chrden_en.htm. The launch concert for his latest CD (on Signum) is on Monday 9 June at Kings Place. Highly recommended – who’d like to join me?

I was very pleased with this Maxim Vengerov concert poster that I spotted on Facebook recently:
Great start to 2014 with my shoot being with the amazing La Nuova Musica under the direction of David Bates. Here are some photos from the recording session (for two CDs to be released later this year) here, plus promo shots of the group and David:

I have just updated the list of people I have photographed or filmed up to today, 28 April 2014:
Behind the scenes at scoring session for new Captain America movie with fantastic British composer Henry Jackman. We filmed this just before Christmas at Air Studios. This was shown on Entertainment Tonight last night.
New CD just out – Brahms violin sonatas
CD cover from shoot in Hamburg on Boxing Day…
Jonathan Biss – new CD, 3rd in series of Beethoven sonatas, released by Onyx. Cover from shoot in September.
A trip to Jonathan’s website is recommended – he is rapidly also becoming known for his teaching and writing. Over 30,000 students have enrolled in Jonathan Biss and the Curtis Institute’s Coursera course on Beethoven’s piano sonatas.
Brand new website and CD from cellist Corinne Morris
Working with Corinne this year has been particularly rewarding not least because of her remarkable and inspiring story – which you can find out about here.
