Yorkshire commercial photographer: Wakefield Cathedral Choir
Wakefield Cathedral Choir have again booked me as their Wakefield commercial photographer to photograph the reforming of the choir after the summer break. Each September, the whole choir meets up for rehearsals and a party and it’s one of the few times when all the choir is at rehearsals at once i.e. male section and both girl’s and boy’s sections. So, after the evensong concludes and before the choir heads off to party, we take the opportunity to shoot the choir as a whole and then variations of the choir and finally, individual portraits for those who want them. This year was slightly different as I was not able to do the individual portraits in the choir stalls as there is a good deal of renovation work taking place and this area was boarded off. However, it was easy enough to find a backdrop that gave a nice sense of the cathedral for the portraits and they have a nice warm quality to them created by shooting with the ambient light being predominantly sodium vapour and tungsten lighting. As ever, I used a couple of 500w monoblocs to light the larger groups and a simple two point lighting set up for the individuals to create depth and detail to the photos. Here are just a few images to give a flavour of what we created and I am sure the parents will be delighted with the results.
