Sherman Poppen, inventor of the Snurfer, precursor to the snowboard 🏂 ••• Very sad to hear of the passing of Sherman, whom we had the pleasure and joy of meeting and interviewing for a film about the history of snowboarding a few years ago. Whatever side of the fence you sit as to who was the first, there’s no doubt that Sherman was there at the forefront. An intelligent, kind human who I’m sure will be missed by friends and family. RIP. ••• #shermanpoppen #snowboarding #portrait #portraiture

Capturing this show was a treat - and tonight I get to watch it, which I know is going to be something else. Blues In the Night is a truly special production, the journey of which I have in a very small way been privileged to have been a part of over the past 7 years. ••• For production photos, my job is made easier by the exquisite work of the designers, as well as the performers of course. All that remains for me is to capture those special moments in a nice frame and composition. These are two of my favourite shots, and moments, in the show - although there are far too many to post to be honest. Including one that gets me just a bit emotional ( @gemmasutton1 you know!) ••• Sharon D Clarke, Clive Rowe, Gemma Sutton and Debbie Kurup star. Mark Dickman - Musical Director Neil Austin - Lighting extraordinaire Robert Jones - Set Designer Lotte Collett - Costume Designer Frank Thompson - Choreographer Avgostous Psillas - Sound Designer ••• and the one and only visionary Susie McKenna directing. ••• Plus countless others behind the scenes whose names I don’t have yet as I don’t have the program! ••• #bluesinthenight #kilntheatre #theatre #stage #leicam #leicaq #leicauk #productionphotography #theatrephotography

Joe Stilgoe - Musician, London ••• I’ve been meaning to post this for a couple of days - since going to see a most spectacular album launch by Joe and his Mighty Big Band at Ronnie Scott’s earlier this week. I was blown away by the expert display(s) of musicianship, as they belted out tracks from his new album. If you like 80’s music, or 50’s, jazz or big band - or this eclectic mix, then you’ll love it. Congratulations to him and his team and band on a most brilliant album launch and release! 🎉 ••• My favourite however was hearing Joe’s beautiful rendition of The Kinks ‘Waterloo Sunset’, which took me right back to our wedding day, which Joe played the track at. It also featured on the album that I shot this for - in one of my favourite North London pubs. ••• #portrait #portraiture #joestilgoe #ilikethisone #theheatison #ronniescotts #jazzportrait

Michael Kiwanuka, who plays the Park Stage at Glastonbury today. This was taken a few years ago when he was recording for his album in a studio on the Isle of Wight. Michael invited me to come and spend a day with him while they put down a few tracks. The subtle natural light coming through the skylight into the studio was perfect for the shoot and made for some great frames for stills and video. In fact we edited together videos of the tracks recorded that day - I must dig them out! Anyway, he’s playing soon so I’m gonna tune in - bound to be a beautiful set, as always. And massively proud of him to be doing so. He’s one of my favourite humans - no doubt. Big love all round 🧡 ••• #portraitphotography #portrait #michaelkiwanuka #glastonbury #naturallight #musicianportrait

Jenna Coleman, London, 2019 ••• A few weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of working with Jenna - who invited me to take her portrait backstage during the last week of ‘All My Sons’ at The Old Vic.

Block Party, Park Slope, Brooklyn ••• This was a total dream to stumble across - an actual hydrant opened up with kids playing in it. At golden hour. And then a block party throughout the whole street! Loved experiencing this and seeing the vignettes of local life on a balmy June afternoon in Brooklyn. That’s it, we’re moving! ••• #leicaq #leicacamera #leicausa #streetphotography #streetphotos #blockparty #brooklyn #goldenhour

Trinidad, Cuba ••• Everyone I've ever met in Cuba has a story to tell. Some involve memories of the revolution (for those that are old enough), almost all include some degree of a political agenda, and others are just beautiful anecdotes. After I had stopped to take Isadora's portrait, she told me about the day she went to the market to buy the cloth to make the very dress she was wearing, 70 years ago when she was in her twenties! I was dumbfounded - not only by her age, but how remarkably well her dress had kept these past few decades. She said there had been a few repairs over the years, but essentially it was he same dress - the notion of recycling, re-using and fixing things is inherent to their cultural DNA. It is an island full of surprises, vistas, beautiful people and wonderful storytellers and, for me, filled with memories. ••• Shot on Leica M-P 240, with 35mm Summilux lens (2 frames as originally couldn’t decide which to include in portfolio...) ••• #portrait #trinidad #cuba #leicam #leicamp240 #35mmsummilux #retrato #streetphotography #streetportrait #streetportraiture #alocubano #cubano #leicauk #leicacamera #cubaphotography #portraiture #streetphoto

Swimming and diving off the Malecón, Havana, Cuba ••• It’s just about warm enough to be swimming in the sea again here in the UK - I’m clearly not one of those hardy all year round swimmers - and I’ve remembered what a tonic it is. Rather than post a terrible selfie of me post-swim, I’m reminiscing to my trip to Cuba. These boys are much hardier - especially given the elements of danger involved in diving off the Malecon wall - tides, rocks and the odd shark! ••• #archive #cubastreet #cubaphotography #streetphotography #travelphotography #cubatravel #leicam #leicacamera #leicauk

I love this image for several reasons. The emotion of collaboration and bringing together is a very powerful one, which this moment in the production encapsulates brilliantly. Not only are the characters reunited in the play, but this suspended connection in mid-air perfectly unites the whole audience in that moment, which is fleeting. • • • A lot of things behind the scenes need to coincide seamlessly for this to happen - lighting, exquisite trapeze work, sound, the staging of the other actors...all have to be perfectly choreographed. • • • Having watched this production from out front, I had picked this moment as one of my wish list shots to come away with. That meant me figuring out where best to take it from - where I wouldn’t be seen, wouldn’t be in the way, and would be able to adjust my camera settings to frame and capture it at this precise moment. • • • This is why I love photographing live stage productions behind the scenes - I want to show just how perfect the collaboration of dozens of professionals needs to be in order to achieve even the most fleeting of moments. That’s why we all do it. It is a challenge, and a privilege. • • • I work out of a brilliant co-working space @theprojectsbtn - and one of their mottos is that beautiful things happen when we work together. I couldn’t agree more and am so grateful that they recently decided to hang this and several other @curtaincall photos up to display. It’s meant that recently we’ve printed it up and I love it all over again. • • • Shot on Leica Q at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, during A Midsummer Nights Dream • • • #backstage #artofbackstage #theatre #collaboration #togetherness #stage #coworking #leicaq #leicauk #leicacamera #backstageninja #theatrephotography #stagephotography #bts #theaterphotography

Congratulations to Benedict on his BAFTA win last night - after multiple nominations, he takes home the Leading Actor award for his drama Patrick Melrose. Couldn’t have happened to a nicer chap - I’m sure he’ll go far! • • • Here’s my portrait of him taken the week before the very first episode of Sherlock came out, and changed his life forever.

I feel like a ninja when I shoot backstage - it’s my only superpower, but I love it. Trying to capture special moments and memories - as theatre productions are so ephemeral, and tomorrow, this will all be gone, once the show closes tonight. This production @allabouteveplay was no exception - and made super special by @lilyjamesofficial @gilliana and all the cast and crew who welcomed us with open arms.

“HIDE!” Split seconds before and after total hysterics. She’s my toughest and best portrait subject to date. In the middle of a game of hide’n’seek she wrapped herself in the curtain before running off again. I asked her if she’d go back to the curtain so I could take a photo - she was generous enough to give me this shot and look, which couldn’t have lasted longer than the 1/125 sec it took to capture it. #willowjoy #hideandseek #portraitphotography #portraiture #portrait #family #leicaq #leicauk #leicacamera

Lovely to have an excuse to share my portrait of Sophie Ellis Bextor today - as it’s her birthday 🎂 Happy Birthday Sophie! • • • I’ve been working on new portfolio pages recently and this has been on a shortlist of portraits to share - so I went for a quick google only to see its her birthday today! 🎉 Looking back, this was such a nice shoot, very calm, peaceful, unfussed and not rushed.

I’ve always enjoyed looking for those intimate special moments of the everyday when I shoot backstage. This was probably the first time I did this - working with Michelle Dockery when we were at The Old Vic on Pygmalion. Grateful for the opportunity to share these moments, and set the wheels in motion on my alternative production photography journey. ・・・ The show was directed by the great Peter Hall, and starring Tim Pigott Smith. Sadly both are no longer with us, but I know that everyone involved in that production will have very fond memories of it, and them. ・・・ @theladydockers 📷@matthumphreyimages ・・・ #artofbackstage #backstage #theatre #theater #portraiture #portrait #portraitphotography #ladymary #downtonabbey #michelledockery #stage #actorportrait

Shooting backstage and behind the scenes is a privilege, and I’m very much aware that there is a whole choreography of jobs, tweaks, movements, and adjustments that need to happen - normally in a very short amount of time, and space. I’m forever grateful to the cast and crew who allow me to capture these scenes, and the trust they extend - which goes both ways. Working with Gillian and the company of All About Eve was the perfect representation of this dynamic. 🙏 ・・・ #repost @gilliana ・・・ 📷 @matthumphreyimages @curtaincall ・・・ #backstage #artofbackstage #allabouteve #gilliananderson #theatre #leicaq #leicauk #leicacamera

Susannah Fielding has been gracing our tv screens recently in the brilliant new Alan Partridge series, as his co-host Jenny Gresham - and she is Excellent in it. Tune in if you’ve not already ..... . This shot was taken a few years ago when she was on stage at the National Theatre in Beaux Stratagem - on one of the first backstage shoots we did for Curtain Call. The pools of spill light in the off-stage areas and Lizzie Clachan’s beautiful design made for some great captures. I love the colours here - and actually it is so dark so I remember having to crank up the ISO quite a bit on the camera. It gives it a painterly look that I don’t actually mind. .

The mood of the day - these two filling my heart. Willow is so lucky to have the most brilliant mum, and we are fortunate to have her. Counting our blessings today. 📷 Every now and then, it all aligns for a nice shot and I actually manage to get my manual focus on point quick enough and other settings just about there when shooting directly into the sun. Needless to say I’ve milked this shot for presents, cards:) #mothersday #family #willowjoy

My favourite film is probably The Big Lebowski. Now one of my daughters favourites is Monsters Inc. both feature this dude, Walter, Sully, Mr John Goodman. Coincidence? I think not, he’s an absolute gent, a true talent and one of the most humble big name actors I’ve ever met. This is a portrait I took of him when he was working on a brilliant play ‘American Buffalo’, in London. It was his first time treading the boards on the West End, an achievement he was immensely proud of - and humble about! .

⚡️Alternative Valentines post alert ⚡️ . This is Raquel, in her apartment in Central Havana, Cuba Self-appointed 'manager/caretaker/cleaner/slave', (her own words) Raquel manages a self-catering apartment in the central part of the city. She has the manner of a provincial B&B owner, while being very sweet-natured and attentive. I photographed her in her own apartment among her hoarded possessions, several television sets, and piles of newspapers she refuses to get rid of. . She started showing me various bits and pieces she had kept over the years, happy to journey down memory lane. One of these was a collection of postcards and photos from her husband (since deceased). . See photo 2&3. . This postcard was from her then fiancé dated 14.02.2001 and reads: “I ask the all powerful one that our married life should be the same as the 41 years we’ve spent as fiancés - and I think from our perspective, it will be.” It was his proposal, after 41 years together. .

Hats off to this legend @richard.e.grant for his Oscar nomination for @canyoueverforgiveme - unbelievably his first Academy Award nod. I’ve long been a fan of his work having predictably been utterly mesmerised with his performance in Withnail - a film I remember watching underage on VHS round at a friend of my older brothers house. I had the pleasure of meeting him and photographing him for all of about 2 minutes a few years ago - before he was rushed on to set while shooting a period BBC drama. He gave some great looks and I previously overlooked this one, but love the mischief. . #richardegrant #canyoueverforgiveme #oscars #oscars2019 #withnailandi #portraitphotography #portraiturephotography #portraiture #hatsoff

First listen to the White Album ever! Thought it was about time to introduce Willow to the masterpiece. She absolutely loves music, and will get up and dance whenever there’s a good tune on - it’s her happy place. She’d already put the headphones on, so I connected them and pressed play. It stopped her in her tracks and she was mesmerised by Dear Prudence, as I think I probably was the first time I heard it. The head started swaying, arms moving up and down hitting her knees in time, and soon she was off the chair and dancing around the living room - I managed to snap this just before she did and I joined in. Joy. #thewhitealbum #willowjoy #thebeatles #family #familyportrait #dearprudence #whitealbumnotbluemonday

Jodie Whittaker . My portrait of Jodie - recently revisited and edited - originally shot in my old studio in Muswell Hill. She used to come and hang out over a coffee, and we shot this series of portraits before the last Broadchurch. She nailed that, and I know she’s going to nail being the next, and first female, Doctor Who. #jodiewhittaker #13thdoctor #doctorwho #drwho #broadchurch #portrait #portraiture #studioportrait
