A Tale of Two Cities London & Manchester

Monday, 25 September 2017 13:55

Ian Cartwright, Caramel photography has worked nationwide gaining a wealth of experience photographing a wide range of people, objects, and circumstances in a wide range of different locations.

Recently he found himself being asked to complete projects in both Manchester and London.

Project 1

Under the direction of Graeme Armitage, who was working on her rebrand and website design, I was commissioned to photograph Susan Jones, Director of Susan Jones Consultancy, in both Manchester and London, where she has offices.

The brief was that the setting for the shoots were to be in recognisable and relevant locations. Her job involves gaining town planning permission, typically for large advertising displays.

There can be challenges working in locations where the permission guidelines are unclear. By working quickly and efficiently a good selection of images were gathered without issue.

Project 2

PH Media is a leader in on hold marketing, with over 400 international employees, it too has offices both in Manchester and London. My job was to photograph members of staff individually, and as they worked, the work teams, the MD, and the buildings.

Both offices were bright, which meant I could work quickly without much interruption. With the camera on a tripod, I used a long lens at almost the widest aperture, enabling a sharp separation between the people and the background.

I learned something I hadn't heard of before, that is, apparently, businesses are charged if their premises have a view of St Paul's Cathedral.

Here’s what Andrea Cameron from the agency said: “Not an easy subject to photograph, and a gym not the most ideal location. Ian came up trumps with very creative photos that have numerous uses - large framed wall prints, to accompany press releases for the media, website, marketing material etc. I was delighted with the shots and will most certainly be using him again.”
