A curated selection of my recent artwork for the Royal Opera House and the Royal Ballet in London's Covent Garden.

This series features a selection of well-know pieces in the operatic and ballet canon, alongside some beautiful new pieces such as Cathy Marston's moving new ballet the Cellist. It has ben a privilege to devise these conceptual pieces to help promote some of the country's finest directors, choreographers, singers and dancers!

Gavin is an award-winning freelance photographer and digital assistant based in Edinburgh, working throughout the UK and beyond.

He originally trained as a classical and jazz musician at London’s Guildhall School of Music, before moving to Paris as an artisan baker, working with leading French boulangerie Eric Kayser. His photographic work is as diverse as his background, telling thought-provoking stories through creative imagery. He draws particular inspiration from the art, design and photography that he was exposed to during his time in Paris.
