Caz & Scott at The Wellbeing Farm ~ Shadow Shooting with Nik Bryant

April 2019


After the styled shoot at Atlas Studios Nik Bryant asked me if I'd like to shadow him at one of his weddings just to see how he approaches his weddings and how he works with his couples. He told me any photographs I took I'd be able to use in my portfolio so I jumped at the chance. I really enjoyed working alongside Nik and I like to think I learned a bit from him too, specially how he gets the required photographs without keeping the couple away from their friends and family for too long show me more ...



Styled shoot at Atlas Studios, Bolton

January 2019


What a cracking shoot this was. An old mill in Bolton houses Atlas Studios, a friends daughter modeled and fellow photographer Nik Bryant gave me some pointers during this off camera flash practice session. I'm pretty chuffed with the resulting images show me more

Jane & Vinny's pre wedding shoot at Lytham St Annes

December 2018


This gorgeous laid back couple get married in January at the beautiful Eaves Hall. I'm so excited to have been asked to shoot their upcoming wedding and as we walked around the hall scouting out possible shots for their big day they told me that they had absolutely no idea of how to pose for the camera ... "we're dreading it .. we just don't know what to do" they both said. "Why not have a pre wedding shoot then ?" I said " Have you got a favourite place ?" It became apparent that they both loved Lytham St Annes so off we went the next week. It was bitterly cold and howling a gale which made for some pretty wild hair shots ! Despite the cold the weather played ball in the fact that we had a stunning sky as a backdrop and of course the dunes ... even Martha, their little dog got in on the act! Show me more

Family portrait shoot at Dunham Massey

November 2018


National Trust Dunham Massey with its beautiful autumn tinted parkland was the backdrop for a really lovely family portrait session. The family had all dressed in matching red tops and this offset the stunning landscape to a tee. Warm autumn sunshine, a couple of deer and lots of happy laughter made this an epic shoot show me more

Bet's maternity shoot at Brockholes

September 2017


Bet ,Ste and Oliver are a beautiful family of three which is soon to become four. 

They had never heard of maternity shoots when I mentioned it but they didn't need much persuading once I'd explained what one was ! Once again we headed to Brockholes for a fun filled shoot. Little Oliver was thrilled to be my assistant and insisted on checking my LCD screen after every shot ! Once I had edited these images and presented them to the family they quickly booked me to complete the set with a newborn shoot once baby has arrived show me more
