Photographer Simon Tomkinson


My photography practice concentrates on the study of the human form and movement. I have worked with leading performers and athletes, from multi-award winning dancers to British champion gymnasts, building a rich experience in my chosen specialism.

My photographs of world-class dancers in legendary companies such as The Bolshoi and Royal Ballet have been bought by the national and international press like the Guardian and Financial Times. I have been commissioned by both traditional, large companies (e.g. Birmingham Royal Ballet) and younger, highly innovative ones (e.g. New Movement Collective).

In 2019 I presented a long-term personal project studying human movement across a variety of disciplines. Titled ‘Movement Studies i-iv’, this was exhibited as a solo show at The Old Truman Brewery in London supported by the Royal Academy of Dance.

More recently, since the pandemic, I have broadened my practice to look at wilds, studying movement in nature.
