Publicity Portrait Shoot with the Women in Rock

Posted on: 9 November 2019

For most of my indoor portrait photography shoots my equipment has to be fitted around furniture with not a lot of room left to move around.

This wasn't a problem on my latest shoot!

The Women in Rock were performing at The Birdwell Venue in Barnsley last night and I was asked to come along prior to the show and do some photographs. They had recently acquired two new singers and needed some up-to-date images for use on their logo, posters and other publicity materials.

While I waited for them to arrive from various parts of the country I set up my equipment and really enjoyed having all the extra space. The location was especially good as when the girls arrived, the costumes could be spread out while they choose which ones to wear for the session.

I really enjoyed the afternoon and meeting the girls, but there was one (big) disappointment; I had commitments later that evening which meant I couldn't stay for the actual show - but something I hope to rectify the next time they are performing in the area.

From the moment we arrived Carol was so warm and welcoming. She immediately put the girls at ease and after a 6hr journey with a full show ahead of us that was exactly what we needed. Having already done her research on the show Carol knew exactly what sort of look I was after and as you can see from the results it was clear she had done the groundwork. I am delighted with the artwork for what we needed the photos for and which is now displayed proudly up and down the Country in all major theaters. Will be back for the next promo shots for sure!
