I am a photographer specialising in theatre, portraiture and event photography. Working with natural light, on location, and in the studio, I produce images featuring bold colours and crisp black and whites.
Theatre photography makes up the vast majority of my work. To date, I have worked at, amongst others, York Theatre Royal, Leeds Playhouse, Leeds Grand, Leeds City Varieties, Harrogate Theatre, Lawrence Batley Theatre in Huddersfield, Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax, Cast in Doncaster, Bradford Alhambra, Epstein Theatre, Liverpool Empire, and Abbey Road Studios, Royal Albert Hall, Wembley Arena, Royal Festival Hall and Royal Court in London.
I have been published widely throughout Yorkshire, nationally in The Guardian, The Independent, The Times, The Daily Telegraph, Daily Express, Daily Mirror, The Stage, Morning Star, Vogue, internationally in The New York Times, and on the BBC, ITV and Sky Arts. My services include coverage of press launches, meet and greets, rehearsals, dress rehearsals, and publicity shoots.
My portraiture takes all forms – personal projects, headshots, and commercial photography. Business clients include Jo Loves, Asda, Caddick Construction, Delifresh, National Railway Museum, Balfour Beatty, Jimmy Choo, The Diana Award and The Pentelow Practice – Principal Partner Practice of St. James’s Place Wealth Management.
I have covered a wide range of events. These include Yorkshire Children of Courage Awards, Manchester Theatre Awards, Yorkshire Choice Awards, and Child Friendly Leeds Awards.
I also enjoy shooting a select number of weddings each year.
“What an awesome picture of Jack. Can’t wait to see all your other photos of the show. You are such a brilliant photographer”. Amy Leach – Associate Director at Leeds Playhouse
“By far the best production photographer I have ever worked with, Ant is unbelievably low maintenance – he comes in to rehearsal environments or production previews and needs no specific conditions, he works with what he gets! The results are astoundingly good. On one occasion, our production of ‘The Shed Crew’ he had split seconds to capture moments in a high energy fast paced production. He was moving incredibly quickly across the stage and space (it was immersive and all around him) and he didn’t need any set ups – the whole production was captured in the highest quality photography. I won’t work with anyone else”! Rod Dixon – Artistic Director of Red Ladder Theatre
“You’re a genius…absolute genius”! Alex Moran – Thunder Road Theatre Co.
