Lights, Camera, Action – Flash Dance Photography Shoot

September 11th, 2014 by

Dance Photography Shoot I received a call off a couple of my photography mates to see if I fancied photographing two local dancers. The photography shoot was organised by Millwood Photographic Studios in Stalybridge. I’ve never photographed dancers before so thought it seemed like a fun thing to try. Keith and Kirsty The two dancers were Keith and […]

Outer Hebrides Wildlife Photography – An unforgettable encounter

July 10th, 2014 by

Wildlife Photography in the Outer Hebrides I’ve been overwhelmed with the ‘likes’ I’ve had for my previous blogs about my wildlife photography trip to the Outer Hebrides, thanks guys ‘n’ gals. The Outer Hebrides is a chain of islands off the West Coast of Scotland and a haven for any wildlife photographer. A Sad Encounter This […]

Tour de France 2014 Stage 2 West Vale Yorkshire

July 7th, 2014 by

Tour de Yorkshire Well I’d be the first to admit that I’ve never really paid that much attention to the Tour de France. When I found out that the first 2 stages of the 2014 tour, were to take place within an hour of where we live, I thought let’s see what all the hype is about. […]

Wildlife Photography on the Outer Hebrides – Vehicle Hide

June 20th, 2014 by

I hope you enjoyed my first Outer Hebrides blog  featuring images taken on the beach as well as a brief introduction. For this blog I thought I would show images that were taken from the car. A car can make a great hide and with care, if a subject is approached slowly, can get you […]

Wildlife photography on the Outer Hebrides – Setting the scene and birds on the beach.

June 13th, 2014 by

As some of you will know, each year I try and squeeze in a wildlife photography holiday or as Glen likes to call it a ‘camera Geek trip’…harsh but true. I say squeeze because time for personal photography is certainly more limited when running a business as well as having 2 young children. Anyway enough of my […]

Gumball 3000 hits Manchester – Vivid Team outing

June 10th, 2014 by

I only found out about Gumball 3000 hitting Manchester on June 8th a couple of days before the event. Anthony, my 6 year old loves cars. I suppose most lads do. So I promised him on the way back from visiting friends we’d call in at the City of Manchester Stadium to have a look. […]

MCE Superbike Championship at Oulton Park – Sport Photography

August 14th, 2013 by

MCE Superbike Championship at Oulton Park I’m at that stage now where having 2 young children seriously hampers my ‘own’ photography time. Don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t change this for the world but I needed to think of a way to turn this round. The answer, buy my 5 year old a camera and […]

A few snowy winter wildlife photographs

January 22nd, 2013 by

It’s at this time of year when the UK seems to come to a stand still as we’ve had a few inches of snow. So as I’m sat here looking out of the Vivid office window at the traffic building up outside it made me think of a few times I’ve been lucky enough to […]

Recycle Your Video

November 30th, 2012 by

For this edition of the blog, we wanted to show how you can use existing footage/content and change it to produce new content. A few years ago whilst planning for the Manchester Business Show at the Manchester Central Arena, the team came up with the simple concept of using eye-catching animal images to provide a […]

Eagles and Otters and Hares…oh my! – Wildlife Photography

July 19th, 2011 by

Isle of Mull Wildlife Photography Holiday It’s been a busy time of late in the world of Vivid, and I apologise for the lack of blogging. Hopefully over the next few weeks we’ll have a ‘blogfest’ and be back on track! We’ve been working on a lot of different Vivid projects but thought I’d do a […]

Photography – It’s a mugs game?

January 24th, 2011 by

Well excitement fell over the Vivid Photo Visual studio today, with the arrival of a new piece of equipment for Graham. A couple of things for those that don’t know me too well. I’m always buying equipment, mainly Canon, and I love a good cup of tea…or if Glen is making it, just a cup […]

Super Hero Photography Sounds like a Super Hero character… Miss Stockport, here to make your day! It was a few weeks back now when Katie emailed me saying she’d seen one of the photo’s from our last session in the Daily Mail. Vivid work with a number of models to produce lifestyle photography images that are […]

A Bird in the Hand – Photographic Studio Session

October 11th, 2010 by

Photographic Studio Session A quick post this week, and to follow on from last weeks post. Strangely enough it’s another of my attempts at getting a little creative. I had a photographic studio shoot arranged with another local model, Natalie. Who again, I have to say was brilliant, we had a good laugh during the […]

Miss Stockport 2010 – Lifestyle Photography

May 6th, 2010 by

Lifestyle Photography Thought it would be only fair to congratulate Katie, who’s just been voted Miss Stockport 2010. Katie is the sister of a good friend, who was Chief Bridesmaid at my wedding. Katie has modelled a couple of times for me, with a view to us building our lifestyle photography stock library. She now […]

What a Lovely Badger!

April 28th, 2010 by

Well now for something a little different, but thought it was worth a mention. As some of you may know, I try, when time allows to do a spot of Wildlife Photography. Nothing too serious, but it’s something I enjoy. So from time to time I’ll post a few birds, insects or in this case […]
