Bassist & cellist Helen Neilson

July 17, 2015

I was approached by this sparky professional musician as she needed new promotional shots of her with her Double Bass.

She was tired of the usual ‘musician-wearing-a-smart-frock-in-concert-hall-setting’ and wanted something a little bit different. As a former double bass player myself I got VERY excited about this.

She loves to swim, do triathlons, do yoga and lives near Clapham so we threw around a few ideas before meeting at 6am on Clapham Common near her yoga studio one morning and coming up with these shots.

We were rewarded for the early start with no onlookers and beautiful angled morning sunlight. Irritatingly the paddling pool was being cleaned when we arrived so we were ‘forced’ to go and have a bacon sandwich, but then were able to shoot in a sparkly clean pool.

What she said?
“ I am really, really pleased with them – these are without question the best photos anyone has ever done of me – and the instruments!! 🙂 Thank you so much – it is really rare that I ever actually like seeing photos of myself!!”
