BBC Philharmonic Season Two
After an successful first season of photography with the BBC Philharmonic(Which you can see in this Behance Gallery)I have been asked back to create season two. 

There are images of the Orchastra playing and also landscapes to reflect the themes of all their concerts. As the season progresses I will be uploading more work to this gallery so you can see the project develop.

Elements of the image were shot in the Hulme Hippodrome & also the Lowry Theater where I worked with dancers, Clare Fildes & Anthony Missen.

With the image I wanted to reference the first performance of The Right of Spring, where there was a near riot in the audience. So I chose the crumbling but beautiful Hulme Hippodrome as the background of this image.

Here's my latest picture for the BBC Philharmonic, made for there upcoming concert which features Dvorak Symphony No 7.

I wanted to capture the energy and drive of this music and also something of the era when it was written.

And prints are available from my online shop.

The image is built from many elements, including a train I photographed in Manchester's Museum of Science and Industry and an old disused rail track called the Monsel Trail, which runs between Buxton and Bakewell in the Peak District. The trail is now a cycle and walking path so it was interesting to (digitally) put a train on there for the first time since 1968.

The brief for all the images featured in the BBC Philharmonic’s Bridgewater Hall Season concert print, has been to reflect the mood and tone of the music featured. This particular programme features Dvorak’s Symphony No. 7: Antonin Dvorak was inspired to write his Seventh Symphony after he saw a train arriving in Prague, bringing his countrymen in from Pest. The symphony is a reflection of Czech political struggle at the end of the 19th Century and we felt the dynamic image of the locomotion rushing through the countryside reflected both the inspiration and the mood of the programme.
Here's my latest image created for the BBC Philharmonic. This one made to feature on the poster for Beethoven's wonderful Pastoral Symphony.

Here's a closer look at how I made the horse and rider for my Wagner image.

The image on the right is the one I made and used within the final picture and was based on "In Manus Tuas Domine" by Riviere Briton, which is one of the amazing paintings in the Manchester Art Gallery.

To build the armor of the knight I photographed many items in the galleries Craft & Design room and totally reshaped and built many together. Also, as in quite a few of my shots I've put myself on the horse. Always like to put these odd little details in my shots.
Here's the 1st new image from my second season of photography working with the BBC Philharmonic. This is a shot of them inside the Bridgewater Hall and will feature as the cover of there latest brochure.
