Previously nested in the South Laines in Brighton, Watches of Switzerland (WoS) recently moved into a vast and beautiful showroom on North Street. To launch the new shop, favourite clients and Mayor Councillor Alexandra Phillips were invited to partake in the delicious canapés, cocktails and admire the new watches from top brands, such as Rolex, Hublot & Omega that have not been launched yet. These are some of my favourite images documenting this luminous event, it was a privilege to […]

Brought to you by neurodivergent performer Sarah Saeed, who has performed as operatic comedy diva Marianna Harlotta and a member of autistic performance company Stealth Aspies.

Elephant’s Graveyard – Actors Headshots for The New Venture Theatre

Elephant’s Graveyard – Actors Headshots I photographed the actors headshots for the New Venture Theatre’s up coming production of ‘Elephant’s Graveyard’ in my studio recently. The director, David Eaton, wanted a uniformed look, so I kept it simple and shoot with one look and set-up in the studio. I used one light on the backdrop and 2 large soft boxes firing at each other with the fall off hitting the actors face. Shooting at f8. As there are 13 cast […]

Midsummer Night’s Dream

In the midst of a hot and hazy Brighton summer, Slurring Words Theatre Company have performed Shakespeare’s ‘Midsummer Night’s Dream’ in the gardens at Stanmer House. This magical play was a joy to photograph the production stills for. The material and characters are accessible and sumptuous. The actors a pleasure to work with when documenting one evening before a dress rehearsal. Photographing around sunset delivers a soft, direct light which is magical, as long as you move quickly, the window […]

Charlie-Mizon comedian-by-portrait-photographer-emma-bailey

Charlie Mizon

Charlie Mizon is one of those dark comedians whose audiences are full of nervous laughter, too scared to laugh, uncomfortable, close to the bone. His subject matters are depression, failure and suicide, ideal subject matter for comedy. Ideal subject for portrait photography. Charlie has a one man stand up show inhabited by many characters, we photographed each of them. No costume changes, just a few props. There is the Chef Preston Blumenthal, the priest is Pastor Ted Bear and the […]

MNDA at The Brighton Marathon 2017

MNDA at The Brighton Marathon 2017 Photographing runners raising money for Motor Neurone Disease at the Brighton Marathon was a moving experience, also involved a bit of planning of positions and a lot of cycling around to each point. The love and support which I captured had me in tears most of the day and I felt very fortunate to be able to photograph some of their stories from the start at Preston park to the finish at Madeira Drive, […]
