Flash Bang Wallop

Image has been an important part of Madhen’s success over the years. That success not only depends on Madhen’s personal style and musical content, but relies on a great photographers eye
to capture our chosen imagery and help sell Madhen to a world of potential clients. We have been very fortunate in our 18 years as a band to have worked with some incredible photographers, immensely successful in their own right and some we now take great pride in calling our friends. Capturing those ‘rock n roll’ moments on stage and off is a gift that these photographers have in abundance.
We’d love to share some of these images with you and introduce you to a handful of the talented photographers we’ve had the pleasure of posing for!

We first met Matt over in Jersey (Channel Islands) where he originates. Madhen has worked extensively in Jersey over the years, both for private and corporate clients. Matt has photographed
us time after time and we have become good friends, loving his style and laid back persona.

So much so that Matthew even booked Matt for his brothers wedding and subsequently his own on the beautiful Island of Santorini.

It was only a matter of time before the industry recognised Matt’s exceptional talent. Kensington Palace approached him to be the official photographer for Prince George’s third birthday portrait.

But Matt’s real passion lives in the ocean below and his fascination for all things aquatic! His underwater shoots are breathtaking and he captures Mother Nature in her true beauty. His latest venture takes him skyward as he takes to aerial photography using the latest technology and drones!

…oh and Madhen of course! How lucky are we?
Our paths crossed when 9 years ago we were booked to play at her very own wedding at the unique Edwardian Dancehall ‘Bush Hall’ in Shepherd’s Bush (London). It was an audience of music legends, well with Jimmy Page as your Father what more did we expect. Scarlet was a pleasure to meet, play for and it was a joy to discover she was also a highly talented photographer…what a family!

A lot of Scarlet’s time is spent working with charities including: ABC Trust, PDSA, Teenage Cancer Trust, Warchild and Alpha. Record companies and publishers commission her frequently for magazine shoots and artwork for their artists.

We were delighted that she found time in her busy schedule to come down to London’s KOKO and shoot our ‘Switch’ launch in September 2015. The photo’s she took that night only go to show why she is regarded as one of the best music photographers out there.
