Simon Weir – photographer
Based in Hertfordshire, I specialise in filming and 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, over the last 15 years, has found a voice in the form of infra red photography. Using specially modified cameras I capture scenes entirely composed of invisible infra red light, producing an alternative view of reality – beyond visible light.
