Taylor-Lally-Brighton-Musician-by-Music-Photographer-Emma-Bailey-Photography

Taylor Lally – Musician

Before winter set in, I photographed Taylor Lally, a musician and singer from Northern Ireland, who is studying in Brighton. We spent a cold, but sunny afternoon in the woods at Friston Forrest, creating imagery for her upcoming gigs. Taylors ethereal beauty was at home in the natural surroundings, which matched her unprocessed music and visual style. I shot most of this on an 85mm f1.8 sometimes wide open, using the softness as an advantage. Moving around the forest we […]

Lisa-NCRQ-by-Brighton-Photographer-Emma-Bailey-Photography

NCRQ

NCRQ is an online health & safety learning company who asked me to photograph Lisa, a recent graduate, for a corporate case study. The shoot was Lisa going about her daily role in a pharmaceutical warehouse, with mixed to murky lighting and in their laboratory which was bright, but had limited space. These restrictions do not allow for large lights with cables, so I chose to go mobile. I used a speedlight flash with a small lastolite brolly grip and […]

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 […]

Mishkin Fitzerald musician by Brighton artist Photographer Emma Bailey

Mishkin Fitzgerald – Seraphim

Mishkin is one of my talented friends in BirdEatsBaby and ‘Serephim‘ is her first solo EP. She has a unique style created from her fan art which inspired this shoot for her new front cover. The Dove was hired in from Sussex Dove Release with a handler and had VIP treatment, he was so relaxed that he felt free enough to have a toilet moment on our star – who was professional as ever and the excrement only added to the […]
