About Me

Bradley Gardner in 'Saved' at the Lyric Hammersmith

I am a theatre photographer based in London. Since 2007, I have taken rehearsal, production and publicity photos for over 150 shows by companies including Shakespeare's Globe, the Soho Theatre, the Gate Theatre Notting Hill, the Lyric Hammersmith, the Royal Court Theatre, Donmar Warehouse, the National Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company. My photographs regularly appear in national newspapers (including the Guardian,Sasha Behar and Silas Carson in rehearsals for 'The Prophet' at the Gate Theatre, Notting Hill Times, Telegraph and Independent), local London publications (including the Evening Standard and Time Out) and in several foreign publications and websites (including a multi-media slideshow on the New York Times website featuring my work on Soho Rep's “Blasted”).

As well as my photography work, I have overseen playwright Sarah Kane's literary estate since her death in 1999. Spending a lot of time in rehearsal rooms as an active participant working on my sister's plays has given me distinct advantages when it comes to working in a rehearsal room as a photographer - but don't take my word for it, read what my clients say about me or take a look at a selection of my work.
