Ashley Morris - Urban Photoshoot Bolton

I shot with Ash last week after scouting a new location in Bolton. I underestimated the size of the wall we had to climb and the rain didn’t help it but we managed to get there ok. Ash is currently under Bodybuilding Warehouse and is a personal trainer from Manchester.

Although the rain didn’t stop will still shot through it and managed to get some awesome photos.

Helen Derbyshire Salford Quays, Media City Photoshoot

I’ve recently had the pleasure of shooting with Helen Derbyshire. Helen is a UKBFF bikini competitor, 2 x UKBFF Bikini Champion and published fitness model. I’ve been trying to take a few fitness shoots away from the gym lately and get more of a commercial look. The location we picked was a multi-story carpark in Salford quays, Manchester just next to Media City. We left it quite late and was able to get the sun coming down over Manchester’s Skyline. Here a few shots from the Photoshoot.

Helen is also a fitness coach, so if you’re looking to get in shape check her out at:

MOSI (Museum of Science and Industry) Manchester Wedding

Here are some of the photos from when Tina and Jake tied the knot. I visited Tina in the morning at her Grandmothers house where she and her bridesmaids got ready. Tina headed to the church in a classic Beauford where I headed off to to see Jake before she arrived.

Jake held his nerve pretty well. It was a wonderful traditional service and a few members of the family got involved with their musical talents.  

The party then made their way to the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester for the second part of the day where they were greeted by a sweet shop and live music. after a few drinks and a catch up they all sat down to some food followed by speeches. 

After the first dance the band kicked in and everyone joined the dance floor to show of their moves!

Ordsall Hall Wedding

I had the pleasure of photographing Catherine and Mikes wedding at Ordsall Old Hall in Manchester. It was an intimate service of 60 guests which tied in perfectly with the venue. when I visited the bride in the morning everything was so calm and peaceful. I got some great shots before I left for the service where Mike and his best man were greeting family and friends. after the service the guest had a chance to look around the museum which gave me chance to get the Bride & Groom alone for some photos around the gardens and with the VW camper van she arrived in. After some well deserved drinks and canapés they jumped in the VW and headed to Swinton Park Golf Club. The speeches took place before the meal and then they all sat down to a Chicken dinner. They all crowded round for the first dance to "You On My Mind In My Sleep" by Richard Ashcroft and let the evening in with some celebratory cigars.

The day was really laid back and made it easy as a wedding photographer to capture the day as it went by without having to stage anything.  


Salford Quays Fashion Shoot

I got together with a friend recently and headed down to Salford Quays to get a few fashion shots. We managed to get there just before "golden hour". I had a vision of the shoot being black & white so I stuck to that theme which I feel gave the photos a good feeling. Check out some of the shot we got.
