My Studio & Album Gallery
My studio/album gallery is in the heart of Manchester city centre, just around the corner from Oxford Road station. There’s plenty of on-street parking outside, and a carpark across the street (NCP Hulme street). It’s a beautiful 200-year-old ex-cotton mill conversion, complete with floor to ceiling windows and barrel brick ceilings. The ceilings are my favourite feature! This is where I usually meet clients for consultations. You’re welcome to arrange to pop in for a cuppa to chat wedding!
Things I Love
What Lenses do I Shoot With?
I’m often asked what lenses I shoot with, so for the fellow geeks interested in this I’ve put a list together outlining what I use each one for. 🙂
The line-up, from left to right:
‘The Superstar’ – a Canon EF 35mm f1.4 – This is a peach of a lens & it stays firmly attached to one of my cameras for the whole wedding day. I shoot the majority of photos with this lens.
‘The Bokeh’ – a Canon EF 50mm f1.2 – I love this lens, but it’s a little slow to focus. I usually use it for posed portraits or ceremony photos, where the subjects are stationary.
‘The Group Shot’ – a Canon EF 16-35mm f2.8 – This is a great lens for group photos. I usually use it at around 20mm, unless I need to go wider. I typically use this for the group photo of everyone, and full-length group photos.
‘The Portrait’ – a Canon EF 85mm f1.2 – The bokeh on this lens is beautiful, and I love using this for posed couple portraits, or when shooting from the back of a church.
‘The Party’ – a Canon EF 15mm f2.8 Fisheye – I have so much fun with this lens! I sometimes use it for group photos if I’m really short on space, but it’s also my favourite lens for the dancefloor party shots.
‘The Back-up’ – a Canon EF 24-105mm f4 – This is a versatile & great quality lens. I sometimes use it for groups, but it usually stays in my bag and serves as an emergency back-up.
‘The Ringshot’ – a Canon EF 50mm f2.5 Macro – An old but wonderfully sharp lens that I use for close-up detail shots of rings & cufflinks etc.
