Opera Holland Park

My involvement with OHP started in 2005 when Mike Volpe and James Clutton asked if I would document the season to mark Opera Holland Park’s 10 year anniversary. It was a sweet moment, one which I will always cherish, cycling to Holland park most of that summer to photograph rehearsals, costume fittings and opening nights, not to mention just sitting backstage listening to the magic of Sonnanbula and Madame Butterfly to name a few. Over the years, I have returned backstage to take more pictures for the company, the outdoor summers and trips to various places such as the Chelsea Pensioners’ continue to be fun and inspiring. Thanks to James and Mike, at Opera Holland Park you feel part of a huge warm extended family.
