I take photos. Pretty obvious, really. The thing is, I do so much more than that. I brainstorm, I plan, I compose, I adjust lighting, I advise, I mentor, I edit, I design and I listen to music. Not all at the same time, but often within the space of a day. And people pay me for that. It seems that the photography I love also appeals to others, and models, bands and performers up and down the country want to work with me. This can only be a good thing. I work all hours of the day and night doing what I love, talking about what I love, teaching others to do what I love and learning more myself about what I love. The thing with photography is there is no end point, no pinnacle, no limit – there is always more to learn, there are always better and faster ways of achieving the effects you want. I love this, and love the fact that the photographic community are so open about sharing knowledge and expertise.
Scott Chalmers has gone from being just my name to being my brand. Scott Chalmers Photography incorporates all of the following, and far from exclusively;
Burlesque photography, Band photography, Cabaret photography, Live Music photography, Live Performance photography, Commercial photography, Fashion photography, headshots, hairdressing photography, corporate photography, family photography, and so much more. Based on the South Coast, between Southampton and the New Forest, I have access to some awesome locations for outdoor photoshoots as well as my own fully-equipped photographic studio near Southampton.
As a burlesque and cabaret photographer I have had the honour and pleasure of working with some incredible performers. See my “Clients” page for just some of them. If you would like to work with me in the future, head over to my “Book me” link and let’s get creating!
