Film-&-TV-Unit-Stills-Photographer Deirdre Brennan on the set of Penny Dreadful

Penny Dreadful

My aunt ran an art deco cinema in the country and I would spend my summer holidays in the cinema with her. I think that my great love of the cinema comes from spending those summers in the dark, the cinema was our playground.

My Career as a TV, Film, and Production Stills Photographer

I worked in New York for 10 years, with the New York Times for 7 and have also been a member of the Redux Picture agency in New York since 2000. Through the Times and Redux I have had the opportunity to work behind the scenes on some great TV dramas and films.

Through Redux Pictures I recently produced until stills from behind the scenes on the set of Penny Dreadful for the Hollywood Reporter.

When Josh Harnett comes up and introduces himself to you on a Monday morning you know that film stills photography is a great job to be doing. It was also quite an experience to see close up such great actors, directors and crew perform their craft.

The thing I also love about TV and film unit stills is that you constantly have great scenes in front of your eyes to photograph, it is like being visually spoiled.

In my spare time, I work on street photography projects and it involves a lot of waiting before a great scene or person crosses your path, with film stills, there are great moments constantly in front of you.

I also love capturing those behind the scenes photographs and the moments between takes when everyone is being themselves, catching a quiet moment or preparing for a scene. They add to the story of the set and I also like to capture the many other talented individuals who do not appear on the screen.

I am very down-to-earth and unobtrusive in my approach, I find people feel at ease in my company and I have the talent of blending in so that no one really notices me which allows me to work to the fullest.

There is a gallery below of various tv, film and production stills that I hope you enjoy.
