Tabloid Vivant – Publicity Shoot

SHOOT: Publicity shoot for the phenomenally clever and talented band of musicians, Tabloid Vivant.

WHO?: The wonderful Anna Lawrence, Bobby Kilshaw, Christopher Johnson, Elliot Clark, James Parkinson, Jonny Guilford, Laura Nicholson of Tabloid Vivant.


Early is my time of day, so the band and I all made our merry way to some inner city fields, copses and spinneys to have some fun at sunrise. After tackling an old mattress left in the middle of the field we made our way to a pylon. The location was beautiful: a mix between odd urban and natural wasteland. The band and the rising sun warming up the near bleakness.


With me getting them to run in circles around me, jump and scramble over various obstacles and shouting “think Lord of the Flies”, all at early o’clock, I was impressed. They were a pleasure to work with, up for everything and an abundance of intelligent ideas.

These guys are something special and you should definitely think about catching them live as soon as you can and giving their music a listen.

They were kind enough to write an appraisal for me to add to my Dear Photographer… category here on the blog:

“Diana’s publicity shoot for our band was a masterstroke of finesse. Her inspired visual sense, creative direction and assured manner produced some strikingly original images that are ideally suited to our ragtag ensemble. She interpreted our stylistic needs with acute sensitivity, as well as creating a warm and encouraging atmosphere in which we all felt totally at ease. Diana gets the Tabloid Vivant seal of approval; and that’s about as good a guarantee of satisfaction as you can get.” 9385 DLP_9401 dlp_9408  DLP_9413 dlp_9414 dlp_9416 dlp_9427   DLP_9588 DLP_9569 DLP_9574 DLP_9584 DLP_9572 DLP_9435 DLP_9436 DLP_9441
