PR Photographer, Manchester
Here is a round up of recent Manchester P.R. and event photography jobs. These photographs were taken for my Housing Association / Trusts clients.
I’ve worked as a Manchester photographer for over twenty years and in this time the requirements of Housing Association companies has changed greatly. When I first started out most of the photography was fairly unmanaged, I was usually commissioned to go out on to several housing estates and do pretty much as I pleased ! This tended to be a mixture of architectural photography and a reportage style, trying to capture both residents and their homes in one image.
The photography is much more managed now. Most of the photography is commissioned by P.R companies or in-house P.R. and marketing departments. There is a clearly set out brief, aims and requirements for the shoot.I don’t mind working this way and as a professional photographer you are commissioned to fulfil a brief, not to amuse yourself ! The clearer the brief the easier the job.
I do believe that it’s always good to try and do some thing extra on top of the brief. I usually just have a scout around before and after the shoot to see if I can come up with a different angle. For myself, I like to take a mixture of candid reportage shots and environmental portraits. And it’s really rewarding when these self generated images get used.
