Simon Weir - photographerSimon Weir – photographer

Based just north of London, I specialise in photographing live performance (particularly classical music), contextual portraiture, wildlife and nature.

25 years in the classical music industry as a record producer has given me a deep insight into the sensitivities of performers and I aim to bring that out in my images, whether it is a moment of calm composure or artistic anguish.  My clients range from individual performers to symphony orchestras and I have built up strong relationships with many of the UK’s top concert halls through the use of specially prepared silent and remote controlled cameras.

This is balanced by a lifelong love of black & white imagery that is now finding a voice in the form of infra red photography.  Using specially modified cameras by Nikon and Fujifilm I capture scenes entirely composed of invisible infra red light, producing an alternative view of reality –  beyond visible light.

I also run workshops and seminars throughout the world with Magic-Is Photo Safaris and Create Away.
