Our studio is in Saddleworth, a great area for a photoshoot. This bridal shoot was for a few local businesses who collaborated together brilliantly to help produce some great imagery. Credit to Eden Floral Art, Mia Abode, Adele Howarth-Winstanley Bridal and The Frostery
Recently Oldham Library hosted a great Cos Play event. I photographed the event for them and had the idea of setting up a studio for the participants to visit. My idea was to use an old masters background and light the subjects in a fairly low key way. The background was a bit of a risk I guess but I really wanted a contrast from the colourful modern characters, I’m pleased to say it really paid off and not the images are printed as large aluminium images, its the first thing you see as you enter Oldham Gallery and Library and they really do look the business.
I often tutor professionals on furthering their photographic technique and knowledge. I also give talks to camera clubs and tutor in a local school. This photo is a talk I gave to Saddleworth School on portraiture and how you change the look of an image by using just one small flash gun and exposure.
