Incorporated Society of Musicians

The Incorporated Society of Musicians is an independent, not-for-profit membership organisation set up in 1882 to promote the importance of music and protect the rights of those working within music. Members benefit from many professional services such as legal support, insurance & professional development. The ISM also campaigns tirelessly for the rights of all musicians and in support of the music profession.

Working with culture loving Cog Design agency, my brief was to create a series of portraits featuring existing ISM members for a new recruitment campaign. Using two key narratives, ‘Inspire’ & ‘Identify’ the portraits focused on each member’s professional working environment, whilst including more personable visual signatures. Series was shot on a Phase One IQ250, 80mm & 55mm LS lenses and Profoto lighting & modifiers.
