Oxford Operatic Society presents ‘Carousel’ – Oxford Playhouse November 2014

This November I was very excited to be asked by Oxford Operatic Society to professionally photograph their dress rehearsal and opening night performance of Rodgers and Hammerstein’s musical ‘Carousel’. I have been performing with ‘OxOp’ for over 6 years, and have been filming and editing video trailers for their shows for about 3 of those.

This was my first ‘photographic’ engagement for the society and it was a great creative challenge to try and capture the essence of the performances, the characters’ emotional journeys and to do justice to the stage design and lighting, all while dealing with the very specific technical challenges of shooting a theatre performance. I think I was as exhausted at the end as when I’m on stage!
