Shooting Rock & Roll Portraits with Towards The Sun | Wiltshire Portrait Photographer

Rock & Roll Studio Portraits

This series of editorial portraits was created for Towards The Sun - these four guys hail from Chesterfield and are a fireball of energy. We worked with them to produce some live performance images, and in between performances we made these GQ-style portraits with a pop-up photography studio at Real Time Live in Chesterfield.

We photograph lots of women and children at the studio here in Wiltshire, so it is always great when we get the opportunity to make creative portraits of men! With portrait photography we're always trying to capture the essence of the person in the picture. With any performer, there are always two sides to them - the 'performer' and 'the real them'. The aim of these pictures was to try and incorporate both sides, to produce something both intimate which also conveyed the 'rock' element.

We transported the cameras, backdrops and lighting from the photography studio in Corsham and set up at the live music venue - we hope you like the characterful images we produced!
