The above series of images were from a recent shoot for a large blue chip company. An agreement NDA bars me from disclosing the name or nature of the company (don’t worry – it’s ethical and nothing scary!) Though the collection has been used for global reports, website and generic promotion of the brand. These images were shot in Manchester – though some were in London…

Two more environmental portraits. Above is a specialised technician working on a large van, with v=cutaways of his surroundings to build the profile. Below is an image from an ongoing project for FLOURISH in Manchester City Centre. Again, an environmental portrait – commercial, corporate, editorial…whatever name you’d like to use, it tells the story instantly of what the people do…

Something a little different- an editorial project for John Consterdine at Manchester Taxi Tours, and an example of my being a ‘Portrait Photographer Manchester’ too. John is the only registered Manchester Taxi Tour Guide, and when I say he’s ‘Mr Manchester’ – trust me, his knowledge of the city is just phenomenal.

Corporate Photography Manchester // Mick Cookson

People ask me all the time – “So, what do you do for the rest of the week then, after a wedding”? Curiously…I shoot pictures. I’m a full-time professional photographer, and that’s what I do. All week – especially weekends… 😉 But, to answer the question, I do shoot a lot of corporate photography – head shots, meetings etc for website and brochure use. Ironically (and unfortunately) my main corporate clients have NDA’s so I cannot show the work on my blog, which is a shame, but I have to respect the terms and conditions of the sensitive nature of the businesses I take the Nikons to. So…here are some ‘less secretive….’

But…. here’s a recent (and currently ongoing) project for Shield Yourself in Manchester. A project I can share with you. The company specialise in health & safety compliance training and policy implementation – very important if you own and run your own restaurant, for example. Here’s a couple of images from a shoot at Turtle Bay in Manchester…

GARETH EMERY SHOOT MANCHESTER

GARETH EMERY SHOOT MANCHESTER

One of my recent portrait commissions was to photograph world-renowned Electronic Dance Music Producer and DJ Gareth Emery for his current North American Tour promotional material. Shot whilst stopping off in Manchester for a couple of days, during an extensive European tour, his management company grabbed us both for a morning’s session. It’s always great seeing Gareth – I’m absolutely not one of his target fan base (and he has nearly 300,000 followers on Twitter alone!), and Gareth’s not that keen on me boring him with Nikon and Elinchrom speak…so it was all very relaxed!

For those of you who are yet to be acquainted with Gareth’s music, you should drop in and see him on FACEBOOK, TWITTER and on  GOOGLE+

Here’s a couple of examples as to how my shot is being used….and I’m very pleased with the look of them too…

You don’t need to be a celebrity to go in front of my lens, so why not get in touch to book your portrait session?

 

 

COMMERCIAL PHOTOGRAPHY MANCHESTER

This is some of my commercial and editorial work, under my ‘Commercial Photography Manchester’ banner.. I shoot a selection of projects away from my main weddings and portrait commissions, some of which feature in photographic magazines such as Professional Photographer, Digital SLR User and Photography Monthly. I also shoot personal projects for stock libraries, such as the aviation images you see here. No – I’m not a plane spotter, (though there’s nothing wrong with being one), so I shoot my aviation images with a slight twist – the MCP style – very graphic, simple compositions with strong bold colours and contrast. A little different to most, and quite a few of my images have been purchased and licensed worldwide for a variety of projects. Some of my food photography has also been given the MCP look, featuring strong bold colours, and simple graphic compositions – plus a special lighting style which is also a little unique…and secret, sorry. I’m particularly pleased with the ‘Hearse’ image; one from a collection of anti-smoking images I’ve shot. Look closely – a very simple art directed concept which also won an advertising award. I’m a non-smoker myself, so found the challenge an easy one to take up. But special thanks go to Jason & Andy for the creative concepts, and knowing we won recognition for our work amongst the Manchester Advertising Luminari was a bonus.The food photography was part of a long term project for Mitchell & Butlers, for their Vintage Inns brand of food photography for menus and posters promotions, in conjunction with Wildhorse Design in London.
