Adderbury, Deddington and District Photographic Society


For our March club night, we had the absolute pleasure of inviting Scarlet Page, an English photographer and also daughter of Led Zepplin guitarist Jimmy Page.

Scarlet describes her style as very editorial but likes to keep her editing and lighting simple. Her colourful resume includes the who’s who of the rock music world including her beginnings with photographer Ross Halfin who she travelled the world with and cut her teeth as his assistant, loading the film for his cameras and eventually started taking her own photos and grew professional relationships with tour managers. Her first festival was the infamous Lolapalooza festival in USA back in 1994 and by using her ‘fish eye’ lens captured what was to become, some iconic photos of behind the scenes, which were eventually picked up by RAW! And Kerrang magazine. Through working with them she forged relationships with the likes of Stereophonics, The Verve, The Red Hot Chilli Peppers and eventually went on the road with The Darkness for 12 months of their world tour.
Shortly after that, Robbie Williams team reached out to her as they were after images for his picture biography, which was the dawn of a new style of autobiography, shortly followed by other music stars such as Leona Lewis and Ronan Keating. Her intimate portrait of Brian from Placebo has recently been picked up by the National Portrait Gallery, which is a very high accolade indeed!
In 2020 she was selected as a winner of The British Journal of Photography’s ‘Portrait of Britain’ award and she has become an active member of the Association of Photographers and its associated women’s group f22.
