Dr Samantha Ege is an award-winning researcher, internationally recognised concert pianist, and renowned public speaker. She belongs to a new generation of practitioners who are redefining classical music and illuminating the diversity of its past, present, and future.

The portraits were taken in a room that Samantha rehearses in, with a grand piano and some nice natural lighting I added two Profoto lights to add some light to the background of the images and on the subject. With a variety of outfits it gave a different feel to the set of images. I also wanted to do some away from the piano, the room next door had large glass windows so using one light with a soft box gave a natural look to the portraiture.

Samantha will be playing the prestigious Barbican Theatre later in the year, keep an eye on her website and her recent album release at Samantha Ege
