The Photography Show

Held once a year, The Photography Show offers great opportunity for amatuers as well as professional photographers to visit the show to learn, buy and find out more about the latest gadgets and technology in the photographic industry.  I personally found the show to be inspirational as I got to meet other like minded people, test out some of the Nikon lens, as well as try our some other products which has been on my ‘wishlist’. There were lots of interesting talks and seminars as well throughout the day and it was nice to get some tips.

Here are some photos and videos taken during the photography show. Hope you enjoy watching them.

Here are some photos which I photographed at the last Snapper Squad Meeting which was held at the Masonic Centre in Hanley. Mark Scott who is a freelance photographer with Leek Post, The Sentinel and other publications gave us some lighting tips using various props such as coloured flash gels, grid and honeycomb flash modifier as well as wireless flash triggers. The model for the day was Jeniffer who was very professional and posed tirelessly while we all took turns photographing her.

Shrigley Hall Wedding Photography

Here are some photos which I photographed for Chris and Katie at their wedding at Shrigley Hall in Macclesfield, Cheshire. It was a beautiful event where the bride and groom had their wedding ceremony at Tilden Suite, we next took some photos of the wedding party, there were about 130 pax in total. This was followed by the guests relaxing and having a drink while the we did some couple portraits. The Suite was converted into a stunning dinner venue very quickly and beautifully by Dreams Venue Dressing which is based in Biddulph. They did a fabulous job in line with the theme which was ‘Harry Porter’.

The Shrigley Hall Hotel & Country Club is an elegant Victorian country house, set in 262 acres of grounds on the edge of the Peak District National Park. Hence the set-up for the wedding was really beautiful.  Here are some of the photos taken on the day of the stunning couple.

Celebrating Chinese New Year in Manchester

We decided to celebrate Chinese New Year in Manchester this year with some friends. We brought along our children ranging from the ages of three plus to seven-years-old.  They enjoyed watching the parade, lion dance and participating in the  Chinese New Year activities at Central Library.  As we were walking towards Chinatown where most of the event took place, there was lots of stalls selling toys and chinese decorative lanterns which was alongside stalls selling street food.  Theme park style amusement rides were also aplenty, classical music lovers would have enjoyed listening to the Chinese Opera singers . Finally before we left we also experienced the familiar sounds of the chinese fireworks. All in all, it was a fabulous day. Do check out the photos and videos below.

Autumn portraits at Knypersley Pool

I love Autumn! As a photographer, I love the four seasons as it gives me a varied backdrop to capture beautiful images of couples and families.  Although Autumn reminds me that winter months are coming soon, which I personally don’t look forward too due to the cold.  I still love Autumn season the best as there is still something so breathtaking about the colours and the landscape. I photographed this beautiful family sometime in January this year when we did the winter themed photoshoot and they contacted me again for another portrait session, this time to capture the Autumn colours.  We decided to head to Knypersley Pool to get the best backdrop and varied landscapes.  Hope you enjoy viewing these images.
