Shutter Hub member Tom Oxley is a London based photographer, who works primarily within the music and pop culture industry. His work regularly appears in the top magazines around the world, and is always on call for the major record labels. He feels it is just as important to shoot new and emerging artists as it is to work with established superstars, and by collaborating directly with the artists, a sense of trust is established, leading to the pushing of creative boundaries.
Alongside his love for photography and all other things visual, Tom has embarked on a number of successful exhibitions combining the disciplines of video and still photography to create a series of ‘moving portraits’. He became the first photographer in the world to exhibit for two nights in the main room of London’s iconic Royal Albert Hall. The success of past installations and a natural inclination to progress and broaden the spheres of interest, has allowed the content matter for upcoming shows to expand and now combines actors and politicians alongside world famous musicians.
“I’ve always loved photography, it’s a huge passion of mine and to be able to combine it with musicians has been an absolute dream. There are times when you’re in the middle of an incredible shoot, that you do have a little moment of clarity and realise just how good this job is! I feel extremely privileged to have worked with some of the artists that I have done. I’m extremely fortunate to have a job where everyday is different, and doesn’t feel like work.”

Tom’s immediate exhibition will be on the grandest scale yet. The Moving Portraits will be displayed on a scale up to 5 metres in height, and will include content shot exclusively for the show, including Tom Grennan, Rejjie Snow and Tom Watson MP amongst others. Older portraits will also be included plus the addition of previously unseen videos and re-imagined classics.
“The extraordinary opportunity to show for the first time out of London and in such a prestigious venue as The Lowry Theatre, is incredibly exciting and I’d like to encourage everyone who is in the area to come down and face the enormous projections of pop culture icons in person.”
