Scott Marley from Science Theatre in action

Scott Marley from Science Theatre

I recently photographed Scott Marley from the Science Theatre in action. Science Theatre create shows and workshops mixing stage performance with demonstrations to explain the most incredible ideas in science – in the most memorable way. He presented his Astronomical show in front of Year 9 school pupils visiting the University of Reading.

Scott studied astrophysics at The University of Manchester before joining the Bradford Robotic Telescope group at Bradford University to run their outreach program. It was a really interesting, interactive and informative show which everyone really enjoyed.

I initially was disappointed when all the room lights were switched off: great for adding atmosphere and continuing the space theme but not great for capturing engaging images. I was therefore delighted to get this image – a perfect profile shot for an astrophysicist!
