Simon’s photography practice concentrates on the study of the human form and movement. He has worked with leading performers and athletes, from multi-award winning dancers to British champion gymnasts, building a rich experience in his chosen specialism.
His 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. He has been commissioned by both traditional, large companies (e.g. Birmingham Royal Ballet) and younger, highly innovative ones (e.g. New Movement Collective).
In 2019 he 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 and was supported by the Royal Academy of Dance.
He is regularly invited as a guest lecturer by University of the Arts London to give talks about his practice and to run movement-based workshops for them. In 2020 he was asked by the V&A to run a Dance Photography Masterclass to coincide with the display ‘On point: Royal Academy of Dance at 100.’
