Mike Dodson Photography | Services
Mike Dodson is a smashing local photographer, who specialises in shooting music gigs, events and taking candid portraits.
I’m passionate about what I shoot and how I shoot it - I’m influenced by noir films, ghost stories, heavy music and light conversation. I’m a fan of a Dutch - or even a completely broken - angle, a strong shadow, and capturing the energy and essence of a band or an event, making it immediate and interesting. I like to shoot candid photos, capturing the moment and character of my subjects.
Crucially, I’m also a keen and passionate editor, stylising the shots and edits to make sure you get a beautiful collection of photos that are unique and compelling.
Mike has truly captured the atmosphere and mood with a set of superb photos of so
many great moments at our event. He has a great eye for detail shooting close ups,
and wider-angle crowds. We are really chuffed with his work and professionalism,
listening to our objectives.”

I’ll discuss your requirements with you, ensuring your vision for the style and feel of the shoot - as well as any particular shots that you want taken - are realised.
I will provide expert opinion and advice, and provide guidance on the logistics to ensure that I don’t get in your way! I’ve worked on a range of projects with a range of people - from actors like David Suchet to bands such as The Urban Voodoo Machine, DJs to writers - and I shoot across the photographic gamut from architecture and interior design, to landscape, more formal portraiture, and even abstract. I do not shoot weddings.
My father taught me photography in the days of actual film, where I would help him develop his microscopic photography, developing negatives in the dark-room of the university he worked at. He and I have a running battle about digital vs physical manipulation of images, which I will win because I’m the executor of his will.
