George Bodnar is a self taught photographer used to working with celebrities worldwide. Clients include HRH Prince Charles, Princes’ William & Harry, Celine Dion, Charlotte Church, Tom Jones, Jack Dee, Ali G, Kate Moss, Sue Johnston, Jamie Oliver, JK Rowling..to name a few.
I use Sigma lenses exclusively and find the range of lenses second to none and have used most lenses between 15mm through 800mm. I recently had a successful shoot photographing status quo “Wing Walking” on a couple of bi planes. The 300-800mm zoom easily helped freeze close-ups in the air. I mainly use the shorter lenses in my regular capacity officially photographing members of the royal family.
Whilst I have a strong history of music celebrities from the late 70’s to the present day. I am also official photographer for comic relief. My work of over 10 years has resulted in some of the most memorable images from Rowan Atkinson as Mr Bean through Kylie Minogue, Dawn French, Jennifer Saunders, the Spice Girls & Lenny Henry.
My experience of low light stage photography opened up work for the theatre and commercials/videos. Commissions for Andrew Lloyd Webber’s company and Dewynters advertising – Blues Brothers, Dame Edna Everidge, Queen’s “We Will Rock You”, Michael Flatley and the biggest show in Las Vegas: Celine Dion’s A New Day.
