Theatre in Photography

As much as I love performing and being in the audience for shows, I have recently started to try and gain more experience in photography. The way I have achieved this is by taking the opportunity to shoot as many different theatre shows and live events. Here are a few of my favourite images.

CURTAINS, MAY 2016 

This was my first experience of shooting for a show – Runway Theatre Company‘s production of Curtains. I was lucky enough to shadow Glasgow photographer Bob McDevitt whilst he worked on official production shots. This was a great show for photography as it was incredibly energetic and full of life. However, at this point, I didn’t have a zoom lens meaning that I couldn’t capture many close-up detailed shots, but I still managed to get some good images of this rarely performed show.

The next show that I got the chance to photograph was “Seussical The Musical” performed by Creative Spark Theatre Arts. This kind of show is a photographer’s dream as it’s so vibrant and colourful meaning that I was able to capture very lively images.

Two Tribes – October 2016

The opportunity then arose for me to photograph Our Time Theatre Group‘s production of Two Tribes. By this time, I had a zoom lens meaning that I could get close-up, detailed images. This show was quite different to the first two shows in the way that “Two Tribes” involved a much smaller cast. This was beneficial to me as it allowed me to experiment with different photography techniques.
