It was my first year as Festival Photographer for the Leatherhead Drama Festival (6-18th May 2019). I’ve loved the anticipation of watching the curtain open, camera ready, not really knowing what I’ll see as the lights come up. I was pleased to come away with some striking images and was impressed by the high standard set by all of the entrants. I’m already looking forward to next year’s event.

ALL of the photos from the night that I attended can be found in the links below:
