My portfolio includes a great deal of work with agencies and clients in Manchester and the region. My work has included everything from product photography, to more lifestyle advertising shots as well workplace and office photography.

Lifestyle Shoots for Agencies

Here are some shots from a trip to Majorca with agency It’s A Sunny Day for some work with TUI.

With these lifestyle shoots, capturing an authentic and credible sense of a space, situation or environment is important in really selling the product or service.

If the materials created from the shoot are too contrived they loose some of their persuasive quality. Fortunately, in this case the scenery makes it much easier and speaks for itself. The shoot was for the ‘Discover your Smile’ project from TUI and the tea were great to work with.

Office Portraits

In my work I’ve visited the offices of many agencies, to capture them at their work, in team meetings and other organic situations around an office. These portraits are ideal for capturing a sense of who you are as a company, what your culture is and who your team are.

It’s often said in the industry that clients and customers are more trusting of a business when they can put faces to names. Letting visitors to your site, or those reading marketing materials, know who you are is a great way to build trust. I try to use a slightly photo journalistic approach to capturing these moments, letting the subjects try and forget they’re on camera so that the results are natural.

Photography for Posters

Along side are some NHS Posters featuring my photography. I worked with Nantwich agency GSD for this project, creating an eye catching campaign which was focused around real staff in the NHS, with a friendly, relaxed and very authentic feel.

To create an organic feel to the shots and to ensure that the final results showcased the approachable nature of the subjects. As is often the case with my work, the challenge of these shoots is getting to know the subjects and putting them at ease, creating a relaxed atmosphere so that the shots have a natural feeling. These images were used for posters, ads and larger wall graphics.
