Jam has provided some of the most iconic & priceless moments of artists on stage doing what they do best. Nothing beats capturing the authentic spirit of a performance. Check out some of the shows below!

We Will Rock You (West End Musical)


We Will Rock You is a jukebox musical based on the songs of British rock band Queen with a book by Ben Elton. The musical tells the story of a group of Bohemians who struggle to restore the free exchange of thought and fashion, and live music in a distant future where everyone dresses, thinks and acts the same.

Vibeology is a variety production show featuring hits of Michael Jackson, Cher, Santana, The Temptations, George Michael and Elvis, all with a new twist & remix of era-defining songs and an eclectic mix of costumes & dance routines.


"MOTOR CITY" celebrates the R&B Motown sound of the 1960s & ‘70s, with hits from the Commodores, Lionel Richie, Martha and the Vandellas, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes and Stevie Wonder. As one of the original Playlist Productions released by Carnival Cruise Lines, it still stands as a fantastic, high-energy & captivating show that will have you singing, clicking & tapping along, and even up off your seats dancing by the end of the show!


Mosaic is a five-man vocal band from the United States. An innovative vocal collaboration, Mosaic combines elements of funk, pop, rock, jazz, R&B, and even opera to create a musical experience produced entirely by the human voice


Directed and Choreographed by Mistinguett, Destination Unknown is a Magic Production stage show spectacular starring a cast of sixteen and award winning illusionist Jason Byrne. A charismatic modern-day wizard arrives by helicopter with iconic confidence - anxious to show us a trick or two. As the tale unfolds, Jason discovers his magic is useless without wisdom. His creation, Shadow, is hard to impress – and her intuition leads Jason on a quest of self discovery, as he paves his way through an action-packed trilogy of fantasy scenes. From a hullabaloo circus, to lurking creatures under the stage, it's a love story of creation, mirth, solace and redemption.

The Art of Show Photography


Capturing dance choreography requires an experienced eye and sense of rhythm for a successful shoot. Ideally, one should have an understanding of the dance numbers/routines, especially key-moments like a lift, jump, power-pose, but especially the final closing pose! Even if one is shooting a show without preparation, understanding music (rhythm & beats) helps a photographer know when a dancer will be doing an accented move, as most routines are synced to the music. If there are specific hits, beats & accents in a song, you can be sure, that is a moment a dancer will be doing something signifcant!

What makes Jamsta Photography so successful, is not only is Jam a dancer, but a musician & performer. What better photographer to capture your show, than one that is also a musician-dancer performer!

Changing lights, fast movement and multiple things happening at the same time = a VERY challenging task to for any photographer. The art & skill of capturing live action on stage is one that requires dedicated focus and lots of practice to master.

To anticipate a money-shot moment, a high-kick in the air, a power-pose, or a candid expression to the audience; these are all integral to a successful capture of a live performance.  Jamsta Photography began as a photographer for Entertainers & Performers, so capturing live action on stage is something we pride ourselves in. We're proud to have photographed some of the most iconic shows on land & sea!

A Rewarding Experience

With the greatest challenges of photographing a full-blown production show in all its intricacies & splendour, comes an equal amount of fulfillment and reward when you do a successful job. There's something so edifying in capturing a moment that is precious & priceless live on stage, a unique snapshot in time. The reality is, performers never see what they look like on stage unless someone snaps them in their element; that's where I come in. And nothing beats the satisfaction of capturing an amazing moment of a performer doing what they do best, and seeing the joy it brings them!

 "The Money-Shot!"

There are certain moments in every show that MUST be captured. These are the "Money-Shots". Most often they can be found as the final power-pose of a music-number. This is where most of the performers are on stage striking an amazing power-pose; or an individual standing in the middle of the stage back-lit so you just see their silhouette or a spotlight shining down on  them. It's always a dramatic look and effect that I LOVE capturing. But there are also moments in the middle of a song/number that can be absolute MONEY; usually involving something aerial or in-the-air, whether it's a jump, lift, kick; otherwise it can be a dramatic expression or moment of passion.

Jamsta Photography can be seen in countless websites & publications, such as news articles, books, CDs & even Billboards in Las Vegas & various International Festival circuits.
