Rosso Manchester, Ascot Ladies Day Party

June 19th, 2011

I was recently approached to provide event photography by Suzanne Page for a charity party she was hosting at Rosso in Manchester. The party took place on Ascot Ladies Day and all proceeds went to the Manchester Children’s Hospital. Outfits were spectacular and a good time seemed too be had by all. Guests had a three course lunch, some wine! and watched the racing projected onto a large screen at the front of the restaurant. Below are a selection of some of my favourite photos from the event. If you are hosting a similar party and wish us to attend please get in touch.



manchester city centre portraits

Here are some shots from my recent city centre Manchester portrait photography shoot with Jaki. All photos were taken in an around Manchester city centre, using natural light and available backdrops. The difficulty I find when you get a lot a good shots is how to choose the ones you like! This is just a small sample of the photos from the set, hopefully chosen to be representative. I am particularly pleased with the backdrops which were available. I like the way shooting wide open on my 85mm f1.4 turns the background into abstract shapes, isolating the subject. I am also pleased with how the background and her clothes compliment each other so well in some of the shots.
