Headshots don't need to scary or boring to be effective!
I believe that the traditional headshot photography needs to be forgotten and a new approach brought to the forefront. An approach that is more about you and your personality rather than focusing entirely on appearing 'professional' or 'corporate'.
Taking cues from my art practice and portrait commissions I aim to help you discover a look and style that reflects your personality and execute that in a safe and comfortable environment, whether that's at your home or office or in the studio. Every commission is a bespoke service, tell me about your aspirational role models, fashion taste, and your favourites music or food, anything that makes you, you. Together we will use that consultation time to plan out how, where and when we will make your photographs, ensuring everything is in place to get the very best in photo quality but also experience!

I find portrait photography one of the most enjoyable parts of my job!
That's because it's the most relaxed, social and potentially rewarding of all my commissions.
Working together is all about getting to know each other, spending time chatting over a coffee finding out exactly what you want from the experience and how you intend to use your portraits. 
Whether you need a headshot photographer for your social media and business website, the whole family having a studio portrait or maybe just you and your favourite pet, when you are looking for a Portrait Photographer in Manchester you need someone who understands how to give the best quality images and experience.
As a passionate & professional photographer I want you, and your loved ones, to have the best possible experience, and never looking Woof!

It's your event and you should be the the one in focus!
As an event photographer in Manchester, my goal is to help ensure that all the exciting, interesting and inspiring moments from that event are documented in a way that not only reflects your personality and values but presents them in a unique and captivating way.
When you need me I'll be right there in amongst the action organising everyone ready for the photo, when you don't, I'll be getting to know your guests and location to ensure I get the best shots. 
Whether you are celebrating with a birthday party, a wedding or a networking event, I'm there to be your eyes, your partner and your support if you need it. 
By your side or on the edges you can relax knowing this aspect or your planning is taken care of.

For some, art photography is very much associated with the practice of landscape and still life photographers. Traditional genres with a long history founded in Renaissance painting. 
For me, Art is the act of constructing and capturing more than the aesthetic of a subject. It is about communicating the complexities of life, raising questions around how we see and interpret the world and representing people, places and ideas which we can't fully understand through other singular mediums.
As an Art Photographer I work in many different styles and approaches but my primary subject is that of representations of identity and culture and how we can challenge stereotypes and misunderstandings.
This ties into my commercial work through the deep understanding of photographic and art history, long term planning, instant decision making and the complexities of diverse subjects. 
All of which help with executing effective, engaging and forward thinking concepts.

I knew at one specific moment I had to be a photographer. That moment came in 2006 at a birthday party. As the evening progressed the friends and family of the celebrator gathered to pose for the event photographer, I remember turning to my friend to say, "That's not the photo", shaking my head as the group smiled generically. A few seconds later after the ruckus died down the guest of honour and her husband turned away, placed down their glasses as they walked to a quiet corner, turned to each other, took a step closer and intertwined their hands. As they looked lovingly into each others eyes I gestured to my friend, 
"That's the photo" 
It's that perception, diligence and commitment to finding unique and special images that my clients appreciate.
