Manchester live music photography experts. Working across the country.

We capture high quality images, delivered with professional service and a friendly approach. At Decoy Media we push our photographers to get creative whilst always delivering a professional result. We pride ourselves on quality and efficiency, right from initial brief to delivery.

Established in 2011, Decoy Media was formed due to several reasons, one being a lack in creativity within the live photography market (where we started in Staffordshire). For promoters, venues or festivals who are looking for a personal approach to live performance photography, we provide a truly professional service for an affordable price. Our photographers are experienced professionals, using only industry standard equipment, approachable and always friendly.

Decoy Media has worked with some of the largest music brands in the UK and abroad. Some of these clients include: Fabric, Hospital Records, Outlook Festival (Croatia, Parklife Festival, The Craig Charles Funk & Soul Club and The Warehouse Project. Working for both larger festivals within a team of photographers and smaller events in local venues for many years now has given us the experience to deliver the correct results for a wide range of promotional needs. This has refined our process to ensure every stage from client relations to project management are on brief and on budget.

Live event photography is a very important aspect of music events as it helps generate fresh visual content for web or print use. This is just as important for an international festival as a small label running an acoustic session, that wants to communicate who they are to their clients in a visual medium. The uses for images can range from immediate interaction with customers or potential customers on social media channels, right through to future artwork materials.

Excellent photography, lovely chap, prompt with delivery of photos. All round top service, will definately be calling upon Alex’s services again.
