Otley Wedding Photography
I met comedian Simon in Manchester for some fun and relaxed headshots. Simon wanted his photos to represent himself as a comedian and make the most of the colours and indie vibes of the Northern Quarter. The images are to be used in various publicity, so it was important to have some more scenic photographs as well as some close-up shots.
The Manchester Bee is very prominent in these images. Simon wanted it to be really obvious that Manchester is the base for a lot of his work, as well as being the City he is from. I love how the bee is everywhere in the city because it's a real reminder of the cities heritage and community. I also love that it's one of my favourite colours.
Simon was great fun to work with and it was easy to get an idea of what he needed. We did a mixture of more natural smiley images and some with more intentionally silly expressions, which suits his sort of comedy act. I'm looking forward to seeing some of the images in his publicity soon.
