We supply corporate photographers in Manchester to all sorts of clients. We work with our client Castle Fine Art all over the North West and the UK. On this occasion, we were booked locally to capture an artist appearance by Raphael Mazzucco. He along with a huge display of his fantastic pieces took over their King Street gallery near Deansgate one sunny evening in July.
Raphael’s career started and grew to enourmous heights as a fashion photographer. Creating content for the likes of Vogue, Marie Claire and Vanity Fair. In recent years he has turned his skill set to the world of fine art. His style blends the mediums of paint, photography and hand lettered text, using stunning backdrops. His experience as a professional photographer along with unique techniques come together to create truly fantastic work.
His sought after work and international recognition is something to aspire to as a professional business photographer specialising in commercial photography.
Initially, we captured some images of the property. Showing off the exterior and interior of the building in a commercial photography style. This included some interesting detail shots of the exhibition specific branding and stylised light fixtures in the venue.
The gallery and their PR agency required some portraits of Raphael and the light outside was perfect for this. Placing our subject in some scattered light coming through the trees supplied us with some incredible light to work with. Using a shallow depth of field and the window displays as a backdrop helped us to create a moody and striking set of corporate portraits.
We find a key element in providing solid business photography is coverage. It’s for this reason we capture as many aspects of a project or moments of a corporate event as possible. This means we are more likely to satisfy our client’s needs for the perfect set of images to tell their story with.
Wide lenses are of course used for lots of the photos we create but in this setting, a lot of the images (that can be seen below) were shot on a telephoto lens. The compression is flattering when photographing people, it enables us to easily blur out the background using a fast aperture and also ‘shoot through’ different objects in the location. This is to create interesting foreground elements and helps to provide clean areas for designers to add text to our images in magazines or on websites.
We really enjoyed working within a Castle Fine Art gallery space once again. We were really happy to see some of our images included in our client’s printed industry magazine and featured on their website.
As a team of Manchester based photographers, we are able to take on both small and larger projects. The advantage of using a company over a freelance photographer in Manchester is that we all work as a team to get results for our clients. Our styles match up both in the shoot and the edit and there is always someone on hand to step in should there be a problem with the photographer that is booked in for your project.
