Pitch Perfect Pics: Kedar Williams-Stirling on the spot

Portraits of Sex Education star Kedar Williams-Stirling for the April edition London Theatre Magazine cover, as he opens on the West End in football drama Red Pitch.

I had a lovely shoot last month with the brilliant actor Kedar Williams-Stirling, for the April cover of London Theatre Magazine, ahead of him opening in Tyrell William‘s play about “brotherhood, ambition, girls, community, & what it really means to belong.” Oh, and football too.

Net Gains

The play has already had two successful runs, scooping up all 5 major Best Debut Prizes, so the Soho Place transfer allows Kedar & company to bring the sharp-edged, fast-paced drama to a broader West End audience.

Despite his TV & film successes, Kedar keeps a low public profile & is little photographed, so it was a rare chance to shoot this highly likeable young man.

As we roved around a number of different locations at our shoot space, his effortless charm & charisma really made my job easy (and gave the team at Today Tix & Conceptonic a nightmare in whittling down the options!).

Want proof? Check out the range of shots we got & the resulting magazine spreads.
