architectural photos in manchester

January 14th, 2012

Here is a selection of photos from a recent architectural photography shoot for Read Associates. They have just recently finished the fit out of Blackfriar’s house near Deansgate in Manchester and the Riverside Development in Salford. Both fit outs have made extensive use of bespoke joinery and it is this that Read’s wanted me to capture. I particularly like the way inside and outside are merged by the woodwork at the Riverside development. If you require similar architectural photography services please get in touch to discuss your requirements. A gallery of my architectural images can be seen here.

In what is a bit of a departure for blog posts I thought I would showcase some of the commercial work we do at Richard Price photography. We have recently completed the interior and exterior shots for Great John Street Hotel in Manchester city centre. This is one of a group of hotels going under the Eclectic Hotels banner and includes Didsbury House Hotel and 11 Didsbury Park. Great John Street Hotel is probably Manchester’s most famous boutique hotel and the rooms and public areas are amazing. My assistant said that going home to her flat was a real disappointment after spending time in such sumptuous surroundings. Our brief was to photograph the rooms, public areas and the exterior of the hotel at dusk. These are a selection of the images and I hope they show what we can do for commercial clients.

A lot of the shots were taken using Nikon’s fabulous new 14-24mm AFS f/2.8 G ED. This lens is incredible. I have never before come across a lens so wide which also gives such straight lines all the way to the edges. Now I can see why so many people have been raving about it!

I took this yesterday, as part of an ongoing work for a client. It is the New Civil Courts of Justice and the Extension to the People’s History Museum. I like the abstract shapes produced with the fisheye and the lights in the buildings. I recently went in the People’s History Museum for the first time when spending some time with my nephew. Despite him studying double history A-level he did not seem too excited by it and wanted to go to GAME. I on the other hand found it fascinating and dug my heels in staying to watch a demo of trade union banner weaving!
