Harpist, Sarah Veber.

One of my last shoots of the summer was with the talented young harpist, Sarah Veber from St Philip’s, Newfoundland. She studies music in Ottawa but will be returning to St John’s to play with the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra for selected concerts this season beginning with the Nov 11 performance of Mozart’s Requiem at the NSO MASTERWORKS 2; HONOUR. REFLECT. REMEMBER at the historic Basilica of Saint John The Baptist. We photographed her in a meadow in her home town overlooking Conception Bay, Newfoundland.

Finally catching up in this summer’s work. Check out our photo gallery from this year’s Sound Symposium XVIII, international festival of new music and sound art. A wonderful 10 day adventure in music, performance, sound art and acoustic wonders and aural delights! I got invited to shoot Sound Symposium in 1992 and I’ve been doing it ever since.

NSO Portraits 2015 have started

NSO-JessicaPereversoff_GSL-5871-2WEB-text

We’re deliriously happy to be back shooting portraits of the musicians of the Newfoundland Symphony Orchestra for the 2015/16 season. We kicked it off with Jessica Pereversoff on a stormy March day with torrential rain and 100km winds! …we took shelter in an empty car park and carried on! Between running back and forth to the car to warm up we managed to get the pavement swept of snow and the lights up and tied down. Six Nikon Speedlights and a lot of sandbags and rope. Great subjects and a great crew always seem to make it happen!. Lighting assistant Erinn Locke, hair and makeup by Olivia Chafe. Thanks to musicians Jessica Pereversoff and Cameron Maclellan (whose pictures you will see soon) for being such good sports and total pros. © 2015 Greg Locke

Telegram coverage of NSO

The audience was greeted in the lobby by life-size silk-screen panels of three of the orchestra members: yet another application of Greg Locke’s inspired photographs that were featured in The Telegram in the summer, that grace the program booklets for the 2013/2014 season, and that won Locke The Telegram’s Award for Outstanding Achievement by a Volunteer.

Locke’s idea of photographing the musicians with their instruments outside the concert hall, in colour, in the community and by the sea, helps put the faces to the names of individual players, while emphasizing that Newfoundland now has a symphony orchestra of which we can be very proud. …more
