Feeling festive with another dress rehearsal. This time at the Palace Theatre, Paignton.

I hope you’re all ready for this big day! For me, the Theatre is a magical part of Christmas. Two weeks ago I was asked to photograph the Dress rehearsal for a local dance school. How could I refuse this close to Christmas 🙂

Full dress rehearsal theatre photography at the Princess Theatre in Torquay, Devon

Ahhhh, it was SO nice to be back inside a Theatre photographing dress rehearsals again.

For many people seeing the Christmas Panto is a tradition. It is a very Christmassy thing to do! There is something magical about going to the Theatre, to see real people perform in front of you.

In this post, I talk about the show, the technical difficulties, and the camera equipment I used to get the shots you’ll see.

Happy Halloween! A photoshoot with a spooky theme.

I try to get a Halloween photoshoot each year. This year was no exception. The very talented Molly and her boyfriend were the models and Molly’s mum did an amazing job with the makeup!

Very important note:

Many parts of the tracks where this was shot have collapsed, sunk, or completely fallen away. There were trees, bushes and branches encompassing many parts of the track, including behind the smoke. This track is so derelict it is IMPOSSIBLE for anything to be on it. Please do not ever attempt this!

If you need an event photographer please get in touch!

Happy Halloween!

Non-dress rehearsal for an amateur theatre production at the Princess Theatre, Torquay.

It is SO incredibly wonderful to be out photographing the things I couldn’t shoot throughout the lockdown. It is also SO nice to be meeting up with familiar faces again. Theatre work is a love and a passion so it was exciting to be able to get my camera gear ready for some rehearsal photography.

Halloween photoshoot based on the ring.

Halloween Photoshoot at Berry Pomeroy Castle, based on ‘The Ring’

I love the summer but I have to admit, I do like going on Halloween themed photoshoots, especially when the model is a dancer so can come up with some scary and creepy poses.

The location was Berry Pomeroy Castle, reputed to be the most haunted castle in Britain. I have spent many, many days and nights at the castle. Some find it terrifying, I find it strangely relaxing.

18th Birthday party photography in Torquay, Devon

The weather held off just long enough for Summer’s 18th birthday party to be held outdoors. With 2 marques, a DJ booth, a huge BBQ and a bar, the Barton end of Torquay came alive with music, fun and laughter.

With a mixture of 3 lenses and a flash towards the end, they wanted a birthday photographer who could tell the story of her special day. I used a mixture of wide-angle, portrait and zoom lenses so I could capture the types of photos you can’t get on a phone.

If you have a Birthday, anniversary or event coming up and you like my style, I would love to have a chat with you about it, preferably over a coffee 😊
