About Me

Thank you for reaching out to me, I love the brief and what you are trying to achieve - inspiring Manchester to move more. My own personal journey has taken me from the couch to the gym over the last 12 months with significant weight lost and health improvements gained, it is a brief that is very close to my now healthier heart!

I love to capture the emotion of the event. The concentration and determination on someones face, the relief of finishing or the joy of participating - it’s all there for me to capture.

I have worked as a full time photographer since 2007 focussing on capturing people for clients such as Manchester United, Manchester Metropolitan University, Tameside Council, local & national charity fundraisers, local nurseries and weddings. 

  • Over 10 years experience with a range of clients

  • Experience of events / corporate environment 

  • DBS checked

  • Wide range of photography equipment to suit the brief including photo booth, back up equipment and ability to video.

“Steven is excellent at capturing the feeling of an event and the subtle interactions between participants.”

Ben Irwin

Arts & Events Officer

He is always willing to go the extra mile. I use Steven’s services primarily as an event photographer, as well as capturing the images required from a shots list, he always brings some brilliant candid shots as well. Steven is excellent at capturing the feeling of an event and the subtle interactions between participants. I tend to give a Steven a specific shots list of image types I need (intergenerational, activity participation et al.)

He always fulfils the brief, in a timely manner - The photos are usually in my office before I am.

A judge listens to the competing Brass Band - As they are not allowed to see the band this judge is in a a van!

The photographs offers a valuable record of events that we have hosted. Steven has photographed the Whit Friday Brass Band contests for a number of years for me, creating a bespoke photo gallery . Steven’s photo’s also gives us brilliant promotional material to use in Press releases and to drum up interest for the following year is an annual event.

Steven was very happy to work to our brief to take photos focusing on groups taking part in our sponsored walk with an emphasis on groups having fun, dressing up, walking in memory of someone, night scenes around Manchester, good quality photos in our venues along the way to promote future years.

One of Steven’s photos taken in Manchester has been used nationally to promote this year’s event around the UK
