***News*** 5th year running photographer for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo

I am very pleased to announce that for the 5th year in a row I have been commissioned to be the official photographer for the Nobel Peace Prize Concert in Oslo in a few weeks.

This for me is a great privilege to be asked yet again to photograph the event over 3 days.

For the most part I am the only photographer allowed in to photograph the rehearsals, VIP areas and after show party.

It is a great event to do with a host of celebrities and artist in the past, which has included Sir Michael Caine, Scarlett Johansson, Will Smith, Diane Ross, Uma Thurman, Annie Lennox and Kevin Spacey and not forgetting the Nobel Peace Prize winners Martti Ahtisaari, Muhammad Yunus, Al Gore and Barack Obama.

With the chance to work with a great team again, hard work but very rewarding.

From the rehearsals the press conference and organising the official photograph of all the celebrities and artists, and of course the concert it’s self.

Wiring out pictures from the concert as it happens usually every 10-15 minutes worldwide.

Then it’s backstage to cover the arrival of the Nobel winner arriving at the party.

Always a very late night working well into the early hours as I like to give the client a CD of images from the past 3 days at the end of the party.
