As one who has been an Art Director in several top advertising agencies, one can easily see how that has influenced Roy's photographic work. He now spends his time mainly as a portrait photographer. But when time allows, his other passion takes him to the musical theatre. Here, he captures special moments in time to be immortalized.
At the moment, Roy is preparing his book and photo exhibition, showcasing people that have contributed to making the theatre such a magical place.
Artists that one may recognize and have been photographed so far include, Bea Arthur, Chaim Topol, Chita Rivera, Elaine Stritch, Julie Walters, Michael Ball, Ruthie Henshall... to name but a few.
Over the last 15 years, nearly all the West End musical photo-calls have seen Roy's presence. He has been the Official Photographer for a few noted West End, off West End and touring productions. Including : Ace of Clubs, The Baker's Wife, Dorian Gray /Gatsby / Lady Windermere's Fan for Ruby In The Dust Theatre. The Fix, Salad Days, Shout. Recently the Production photographer for Matthew Bourne's ‘Early Adventures’ at Sadler's Wells. Crazy For You (winner of the 2012 Olivier Award for Best Musical Revival) at Novello Theatre. Jerry Herman's The Best of Times / Vaudeville Theatre. Soho Cinders by Elliot Davis, George Stiles and Anthony Drewe at the Soho Theatre. Marry Me A Little / St James Theatre and Arthur Pita's The World’s Greatest Show at Royal Opera House.
Roy is also currently the official photographer for musicaltheatrereview.com
In the current climate of media awareness, Roy is a firm believer that the photographer should be an integral member of any production team. Especially in its early stages, when a production is not yet open to the public, it is down to the photographer to help raise public awareness. He strongly feels that they should be recognized for their work when bringing a show to life. For that reason, it is his mission to make sure that their contribution should be reflected in all official engagements. This should include promotional pamphlets, websites and theatre programs.
