Awards Photographer Manchester
We love Hotel Football, so it was a pleasure to be asked to be an awards photographer at the Manchester venue again. The venue is finished well, staff are friendly and the food is great. Our client LRWA went all out treating their delegates and nominees to an event that split the day up into different sections and across three floors!
The event started out with some AGM photography over a breakfast meeting in the players lounge. The harsh light coming through the windows can sometimes be challenging but on this occasion it added great depth and contrast to the photos.
Soon after we used a spot outside the back of the hotel down by the Bridgewater Canal to turn headshot photographer briefly for some new members of the association. To see more examples of these take a look at our headshots and corporate portraits portfolio.
As the majority of people arrived they made their way up to the 11th floor for a drinks reception. We managed to grab a few snaps of the space before it filled up along with some details of the Seven Brothers brewed HF beer! Unfortunately on this occasion it was a little too windy to open up the retractable roof (yes you read that right!), but with views of Old Trafford, MediaCityUK and Manchester as a whole everyone enjoyed the space all the same.
As the evening kicked off (pun intended) guests were invited down to the stadium suite where there were dressed tables and staging set and ready for the awards. After a quick introduction and a three course gala dinner the annual awards got under way.
Next day edit
We worked closely with a PR firm during the day, they briefed us on images to include in a small next day edit as things happened and the night unfolded.
After dinner guests were invited back up to the rooftop where there were more drinks and some football related games for people to enjoy.
We were kindly introduced to the LRWA by our friends at Feral Films who were there capturing the day alongside us.
We really appreciated receiving a glowing review after delivering the full set of photos just a few days later.
