I went out a couple of weeks ago with Cecelia and Becky for a fashion style photoshoot on the streets of Manchester. I found a few decent locations and we headed off out for about an hour with the theme of Urban Bitches! Some results below.









Nicola and Simon

My first wedding of 2010 was the marriage of Nicola and Simon in March. The whole ceremony was held at the Holiday Inn, Bolton Centre. I’d been looking forward to doing this wedding for 3 reasons: 1) I’d not done a wedding in a while and been itching to get back into it; 2) the venue is very special to me as it is where my own wedding reception was held; 3) Simon did a great job of teaching me how to drive and I wanted to return the favour!

The main function room at the Holiday Inn has to be seen to be believed. The hotel was built next to the site of a disused church, and rather than knock down the church, they chose to build onto it and use it as a function room. The weather in the week leading up to the day was a bit dodgy but couldn’t have been better on the day (ok, it could have been a touch warmer but we’ll not mention that). Some highlights below…








Congratulations to the pair of you. I really enjoyed shooting your big day and I hope you love the pictures!

Calender Girls for Christies

Ok, its been a while since I posted on here so time for an update.

In February I was asked to photograph lots of semi naked women in a pub after closing time. Being a married man I naturally declined the offer until I was told the cause. After finding out one of their close friends had been having treatment for cancer, a bunch of ladies decided to help raise money Christies Hospital by doing a calendar girls style shoot. So on March 16th I made my way to the Help Me Thro’ pub in Bury, to do the shoot. What a laugh! The girls were on top form and I must say very brave to be getting undressed in front of me (although I think the fact it was held in a pub gave them something to assist with the poses, including a topless group shot done outside the pub as below).
