A peek backstage at the Proms issue cover shoot with violinist Joshua Bell!

Photographer James Cheadle and art editor Dav Ludford head to the Royal Albert Hall


The American virtuoso violinist Joshua Bell is on the cover of the July issue of BBC Music Magazine.

And it's a Proms special, so where else to shoot the cover photo than at the Royal Albert Hall, home to the BBC Proms?

We sent photographer James Cheadle to London to capture Bell on film - and we gave our art editor, Dav Ludford, a camera too, so he could document the shoot exclusively for our website!

To see the final images from the shoot and to read Jeremy Pound's interview with Joshua Bell, pick up a copy of the new issue – on sale now.
