The Pianist

I had the privilege to hear Sara-Jane Brown play a long time ago at a friend’s wedding two years ago.  I remember distinctly going up to her and saying “I have never heard piano being played like that – EVER!” Like all of the guests that day I was mesmerised by her gift.  Imagine my delight a few weeks back when a received a call from Sara-Jane asking me to shoot her portfolio to help promote her new business and persona in different ways.

After a long telephone conversation I decided that we would shoot three separate personas for her website and promotional materials.  Corporate Events, Weddings and finally teaching.  I shot her profile at home and tied it in with a lesson she was giving in order to kill two birds with one stone.  I joked about having the opportunity to shoot her out in a field with a floral dress and a white piano for the wedding section. Funnily enough Sara-Jane knew the owner of AA Music on the Lecky Road and he just happened to have a white piano sitting in his field out back.  Some call it luck, I call it contacts!

The final shoot was at Ten Square.  It was between Ten Square and the Merchant Hotel but after chatting to Lucy Anderson (Ten Square’s sales and marketing manager) I made my mind up very quickly!  They had a function that evening but gave us full use of their rooms and even helped us move around furniture for the best shot. Thanks again to Lucy and her team for their support.

Sara-Jane’s new website is coming soon and is currently being built by Karen Murray at Akaihane.
