Dance and theatre fascinate me, I love to see performers on stage and relish the challenge of having to work discreetly in conditions beyond my control. After years of experience in stage photography the technical know-how has become second nature to me, but photo technique is only part of the equation. The really important task remains as fresh and exciting as every new performance I’m commissioned to photograph: I must wholly tune into the dynamic interplay of concept, stage, light and human execution. Only thus can I succeed in capturing those unique moments that encapsulate the essence of the piece. To that mission I'm always devoted.
