About Me

I’m a freelance photographer based in London and specialising in portraits and music photography. Rebeladelica is the brand name for my work and a term I conjured up to give a flavour of my approach to photography.

I work with a wide range of individuals, businesses, artists, publications and anyone looking for a tailored, inventive and enjoyable photographic experience that will produce professional, creative images. My work has appeared in UK and international publications, including: The Daily Telegraph, Scotland On Sunday, NME, Globus, Australian Hysteria, Big Cheese and Play (Musicians’ Union magazine). My photography has also featured in CD artwork for bands including Lagwagon, The King Blues, The Slackers, Classics of Love and Sharron Levy. My music photography work is syndicated through Redferns and Retna/Photoshot. I also work with individuals and families who would like to create personal images either for a special occasion or just to capture a moment in time. Contact me for more details.

Portraits

You may have a specific brief for the professional or personal purpose of your images or you may like assistance with developing your ideas for your photos. Either way, I can provide you with the practical and creative guidance to plan and produce the right photo shoot for you.

I have previously worked in journalism and the arts, giving me an understanding of the intricacies and impact required to visually represent a personality, brand or organization and also a creative edge and affinity with individuals blazing their own trail. Whatever your starting point, I’m committed to making sure your photos fulfil or exceed your requirements.

I also think it’s vital that people enjoy having their picture taken! Many people believe that a photo shoot may be nerve-wracking or uncomfortable. I always ensure that the shoot is as relaxing and enjoyable as possible, whilst meeting the needs of the client creatively and being stress-free in terms of organization and hitting deadlines.

Music photography

I have photographed a wide spectrum of bands – from new artists and staunchly underground acts to arena circuit groups. I work with artists from any style of music, both for live performance photos and promotional shots. Having a life long passion for music, I’m interested in supporting emerging artists and can arrange special packages for unsigned acts.

Selected photographs are available to buy as prints, please contact me for more information.

If you would like to find out more about arranging a photo shoot with me, just send me a message using the contact form.
