Flipsides main photographer for over 10 years, he was a joy to work with and took so many wonderful photos of our gorgeous students, you never knew that Syd was even in the room he was so discreet and professional, a kind caring man who loved his job and worked so well in the studio and the theatre.  We are so sad that we are writing this tribute as Syd has now passed away.  He will be dearly missed by the FSD family.  Our love goes out to all his family.  His photos will always be a lasting joyful memory at FSD and will be seen and used throughout the years to come.

The main photographs within this website are courtesy of Syd Chapman. Syd Chapman was a Performing Arts photographer specialising in Dance and his primary aim was to apply the very best photographic techniques to capture the spirit of performance in the theatre using stage lighting only. Some photos Courtesy of Carmel Jane are more photos.
