Shoreditch Studio | Theatre Press Photography, London | Selladoor’s Flashdance
I was delighted to have been recently hired by the one of the UK’s top theatre companies, Selladoor Worldwide, to take the promotional photographs for their current production of Flashdance the Musical.
This was a shoot with a difference! You probably know that iconic image from the movie, Flashdance… you know the one with the rain and the chair… well it was that scene we needed to recreate for the photographs (as well as for their video trailer). So it was in a Shortdich studio (London UK), along with some dramatic lighting, many skilled theatre water technicians (yes they do exist!), a choreographer and a professional dancer to list just some of the vital crew that the shoot took place. After a few ‘dry’ runs the final photograph was captured. So pleased my cameras are weather sealed!
Here’s the final image…. which can now be seen on Selladoor’s promotions and website… Find out more about Flashdance the Musical here which will be touring all over the UK until the summer of 2018!
