Rave reviews for Mike Bartlett's Albion, now playing in Rupert Goold's production at the Almeida. Performance of the year from Victoria Hamilton.
Last week I spent a terrific day with director Sam Yates, as he rehearsed David Mamet's Glengarry Glen Ross. The play stars Christian Slater, but gathered around him is an exceptional ensemble including the great Stanley Townsend, Robert Glenister, Kris Marshall, Daniel Ryan, Oliver Ryan and the legend that is Don Warrington. Can't wait to shoot this most perfect play.
A superb play given a razor sharp production at the Almeida.
One of the more challenging shoots so far this year. Mark Rylance and company, under Shakespeare's Globe's banner, presented an evening of Shakespeare excerpts. The promenade production had me dashing about the Abbey in a bid to capture the action as it happened. Here's a shot of the man himself.
Something rather special is on its way from Chichester. Michael Longhurst's production of Caroline, or Change is quite exceptional. It opens next week. My production shots will be out soon, but to whet appetites, here are some of the rehearsal shots that they theatre has released online and in the print programme.

Very excited about this one - I'll be returning to the Almeida to shoot rehearsals and production for Rupert Goold's staging of James Graham's new play, Ink. It's about Murdoch's purchase of the Sun and the appointment of Larry Lamb as editor. It's a subject I've long been fascinated by - ever since reading Stick it Up Your Punter by Chris Horrie.
The show stars Bertie Carvel, Richard Coyle and Pearl Chanda.
After having been lucky enough to have shot Simon Godwin's rather wonderful Twelfth Night at the National last month, I'm really pleased to have been asked to shoot his new show opening next week at the Hampstead Theatre. First time at this new venue for me - looking forward to it.
Excited to be taking production shots of The Treatment at the Almeida. The show stars Julian Overdone (he, of Downton Abbey), Indira Varma and Aisling Loftus.
Back to the National Theatre for me to shoot Bijan Sheibani's production of Barber Shop Chronicles. I've shot many shows for Bijan over the years and am immensely looking forward to this one. Not least of which because it'll be the first show that I've shot in the Dorfman (Can't stop thinking of it as the Cottesloe...)
First time shooting at the Theatr Clywd - and am delighted to be doing so for designer Lee Newby who is taking the set and costume honours on a new production for director Richard Fitch.
It's been an eternity since I last shot at the Bush - it's great to be back with Jamie Lloyd's new production of Guards at the Taj. From what I saw in the rehearsal room, it's an absolute gem of a play. Jamie and designer Soutra Gilmour have something special in store for this one...
This is a rather exciting one - am looking forward to taking production images in a VERY different setting.
Here's the blurb:
Mark Rylance and Shakespeare’s Globe are thrilled to bring a company of 25 actors to Westminster Abbey for a unique event to celebrate Shakespeare’s birthday. Join us for two nights only, as we create a beautiful and unexpected world within this sacred space. Consider the war-weary soldier or the hapless lover, behold a great Monarch or bide awhile with a lone and prayerful soul as you explore the famous Abbey on this special evening. All Places that the Eye of Heaven Visits is a collection of fleeting and intimate encounters with Shakespeare’s drama, poetry and song beneath the soaring ribs of London’s tremendous Westminster Abbey.
So far behind with this blog...
Anyway, I'm going to shoot rehearsals and production on Michael Longhurst's new production of Tesori and Kushner's musical Caroline, or Change. The show plays at the Minerva Theatre, as part of Daniel Evans' first season as Chichester's Artistic Director.
Delighted to have been asked to shoot rehearsals and production for The Grapes of Wrath, directed by the wonderful Abbey Wright. The show plays at the Nuffield Theatre, Southampton - before going on tour.
My rehearsal shots for Twelfth Night, directed by Simon Godwin have just been released by the Natonal Theatre. Give it a couple of weeks and you'll see some production shots of mine too...
It stars Tamsin Grieg, Oliver Chris, Daniel Rigby, Doon Mackichan, Phoebe Fox, Tim McMullan, Tamara Lawrence and Daniel Ezra - all featured here...
