"Contemplating a Beethoven Symphony"
The 90 year old Maestro and world-renowned Conductor, Herbert Blomstedt, contemplates his recording of Beethoven Symphony No. 5 in Leipzig, Germany.
I was commissioned to take a series of portraits of Maestro Blomstedt in the Gewandhaus Concert Hall in Germany during his recording sessions of the nine Beethoven Symphonies.
Paul Yates GERMANY
Paul's professional career began in 1984, when he opened a portrait studio in his home town of Newcastle-under-Lyme in Staffordshire, England. He went on to gain his diploma in Design Photography at the Cheltenham and Gloucester College of Arts and Technology (UK) in 1991. With his new qualification and his sights set on the world stage he headed for London, where he lived and worked, gaining a wealth of professional experience in fashion and advertising photography. In 1993 he flew to Atlanta, USA to shoot the CD cover and booklet for the hugely successful album “God is Able” by top gospel singer Ron Kenoly. This marked the start of many assignments for the distinguished Integrity Music label in Mobile, Alabama. Photo-shoots in Nashville, Dallas and Florida followed soon after and since then Paul has worked throughout the world on commissioned photo-assignments for numerous record labels. During the month of August each year, he teaches photography advanced workshops at the CA International Seminar in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Since 2006 he has been based in Bavaria, Germany.
