Thom Bartley  Professional event, portrait and commercial photographer. Birmingham 🇬🇧

You may or may not know that I'm a big fan of the ballet, particularly the @bhamroyalballet who I go and check out at leats once a year so when @bellandsmokey got in touch and commissioned me to shoot @celinegittens , the principal ballerina at the company for a piece they were running to say I was super jazzed to do the job was an understatement. I've been trying to figure out a way to shoot the BRB for ages so for it to land on my lap like this was mega ace.

Last Friday I headed backstage at the @brumhippodrome and got to spend an hour photographing Celine getting ready for that evenings performance of The Nutcracker Hippodrome whilst she was being interviewed.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from the session but you should definitely head over to @bellandsmokey and check out the full article. .

Throwback to earlier in the year when I shot #brumzinefest at @impacthubbrum. So many tasty Zines and printed things to take photos of. Here's a few of them. @bynginc @byngcam

My very talented friend @daisydenham shot at sunset earlier in the year.

Mount Batur Volcano at dusk. Shot on Nusa Lembongan, Bali.

Earlier in the year I went to the incredible screening of Romeo and Juilet put in by the also incredible @secret_cinema. They (correctly) didn't allow modern cameras or phones inside the event but I was allowed to take in a disposible camera I bought from Sainsburys on the way there. Here's a few of the shots I grabbed.
