Featured photographers in Manchester

Blog by Molly Jones under Creative & Branding

It’s an unfortunate reality that a good set of promo shots can mean the difference between your demo getting played or chucked in the bin. Here’s a list of photographers you can rely on to give your image a boost (and highlight your most flattering side too, of course).

Karen McBride
A familiar face around town, and on this blog (she did a Q&A for us back in April last year), Karen’s a keen advocate of up and coming acts and has worked with the Scissor Sisters, Robbie Williams, and The Ting Tings.

Alyson Blanchard Photography
Alyson’s photos have been featured in Kerrang!, Metal Hammer and NME; what she doesn’t know about a camera lens ain’t worth knowing.

Adam Capper Photography
Adam is a digital photographer with his own studio and is available for the full works - promo, studio, live, editorial and documentary work.

Shirlaine Forrest Photography
Shirlaine regularly works with signed and unsigned artists on live and promotional shoots, producing CD and magazine covers, merchandising and website images.

Stephen Devlin Photography
Stephen, who’s worked with Oasis, The Prodigy, Kasabian, The Ting Tings and Ladyhawke, offers reduced rates to unsigned acts, and is especially interested in hearing from those of you who might want to try something a bit more exciting than your standard ‘moody looking band in front of a brick wall’ shot.
