Commercial Photography

Product to interiors, to exterior and architecture, corporate photography and fabulous food photography for your business.

Commercial Photography in Manchester

My commercial photography has been used across all media, from prospectuses, newspapers, magazines, corporate brochures, to websites and other digital media. 

I’m equally at home on location in the countryside or in the city, covering a corporate event or in the studio doing corporate portrait or product photographys. I enjoy the challenge of getting the best images out of sometimes difficult situations and always strive to get the best results possible for my commissions.

The past three years I have exhibited in New York and now in my home town of Manchester. With a growing regional reputation, I’ve also been happy help local charities such as Better Things and Forever Manchester.

Commercial Photography in Manchester

I’m Paul. I offer the full range of photography services, from commercial photography, including corporate portraits, interiors and, studio photography to event and wedding photography.

My journey started in 1993 when I bought my first SLR camera and used it throughout my Design and Art Direction degree at Manchester Metropolitan University, learning all about film and darkroom printing. I eventually went onto photograph, develop and print all of my photographs used within my degree show. After graduation and carving a career out in the graphic design industry I found myself behind the camera again, but from an art direction perspective. This reignited my passion for capturing anything from fine art photos to wedding photography.

I love working with people so working as a Manchester wedding photographer is a joy for me, but also on commercial shoots. Especially trying to get people to relax in front of the camera. I always have a laugh with my customers and couple and build a rapport with them. You get the best photos when you have trust.

I’m based in Manchester, which provides me with plenty of work, but I travel all over the country shooting weddings and or commercial projects. I also love the fact that I’m surrounded by an incredible range of geologically diverse landscape and spectacular cities and architecture. I love photographing my favourite areas such as Manchester, Liverpool, the Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, Ribble Valley, Lake District Lancashire, east coast, and North Wales.

Outside of work I have three kids, the lovely Mrs Grogan and spend as much time as possible loving life.
