Hello and welcome to Alessa Davison Photography! Originally from Birmingham, I now work as a professional theatre photographer based in London. I specialise in rehearsal shots, production shots and portraiture however I also take bookings for private events and functions on request. The majority of my work is collaborative with actors and theatre companies, working together to meet their specific needs. Having originally trained in acting myself at LAMDA, I have a good understanding of the rehearsal room and its requirements as well as those of a production. Working closely with actors has given me insight into how to get the most out of a headshot session and produce high quality images suited for purpose.
I adapt my style to suit the requirements of the client and can provide several different edits on request. I frequently work in both black and white and colour.

"Alessandra spent the whole day photographing on of Our Embodies Archetype workshops for women. She was excellent in every respect. Deeply sensitive to the tender nature of the work, and superbly capable of capturing bodies in movement, spontaneous moments of joy, laughter and truth. She has a great skill and sensitivity at capturing the moment and I would highly recommend her in any rehearsal room. Book her now before you cannot afford to!"
Lewis Barfoot (Theatre Director, The Embodied Artist)
"Alessandra is a photographer to keep your eye on. She's quick, reliable, has a great eye for detail and above all is a joy to have around any creative space. Whether you need rehearsal shots, production photos or headshots, she is a tour-de force of quality and professionalism. She's absolutely got the NYT seal of approval"

"Alessandra did a perfect job at capturing the essence of one of our WoLab projects, via her photos. They were of top notch quality and edited in such a quick turnaround. A true professional, she brings such a great positivity to the room. I'll be working with her a lot more in the future and I'd 100% recommend others do the same."
