Different types of Jobs you may get as a Professional Photographer in Manchester and the North-West
as a Professional Photographer in Manchester and the North-West over the last 3 decades I have done many different types of jobs, from working as a photographer in a newspaper, taking PR shots for hotels to weddings and family events to flying across Europe to football matches in Barcelona.
A lot of my work is freelance press and sports work which means a lot of sitting next to football pitches (mostly) or other sporting events taking images for the back pages of papers or for stock image websites.
Clients have many different specifications for the jobs they hire me for, Wedding Photography, Commercial Photography, PR Photography, Headshots for companies and Editorial Photography. Most of this work is within the North-west, Lancashire and Manchester which is where I am based.
Each of these jobs has differences and similarities in shooting the events. Wedding photography, for example needs a variety of skills to be utilized on the day such as, Group shots, portrait shots, a more documentary style, event photography. The list goes on. Obviously doing jobs such as Headshots for companies also includes portrait photography as does PR Photography. These are more people-based sectors, which means building rapport or blending into the background more. Reading the situation and understanding the brief the client has given you is a skill acquired with experience. These days more candid shots are what is wanted from most clients as it is a little more relaxed and gives a more natural look to the images.
Commercial Photography is more object based, such a vehicles, products, and businesses. Having a Professional Photographer Manchester do these for you is a good way to get your brand across to you customers. Different skills are needed here as usually there are less people involved and the shots are more static and are far more “set-up” for a photo shoot.
