I’ve photographed many famous faces over the years, usually commissioned by Sunday supplements to create strong portraits or fashion based features for their magazines or by broadcasting corporations to create promotional photography. Photographing celebrities for magazine features is always a refreshing change for me because I’m able to push the poses and the styling much more, use the locations in a different way and often the photography becomes more fashion orientated.
I work with many talented make up artists and stylists and have shot in numerous hotels and hire studios in Leeds and Manchester.
I’m ideally situated in Yorkshire to photograph actors from the Northern soaps such as Coronation street, Emmerdale, Hollyoaks and the growing television industry in the North. I work on location all across the North of England covering areas such as Leeds, Manchester, Sheffield, York, Liverpool, Hull, Birmingham, Preston and Warrington.
