Benjamin Ealovega is one of the most prolific photographers specialising in classical music today. You’ve almost certainly seen his work before – it seems like he has taken the cover photos for several high-profile new releases every month. He recently took some great new promotional photos for one of my clients. I could have just said “Thank you, Ben, for taking such nice pictures of my artists” but oh, no, that would have been too easy.

Besides, he’ll appreciate it more if I make the effort to identify examples of his work and then add inappropriate captions to them. Right?

He knows what he did.

Oh yes she did.

Oh no he didn’t.

Don’t push me. I’m close to the edge.

And you’re absolutely sure this won’t look like a mugshot?

You should really choose a safe word. You might need it.

So that wasn’t why you bought me to this remote and secluded location? Well. This is awkward.

    Hysterical. The Uchida photo takes the prize, managing to be both pretentious and ridiculous at the same time. That takes skill!
