Creative production photographers in Manchester. Working across the North West & UK.

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 creative flair within the production photography market. For businesses who are looking for a personal approach to behind the scenes 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 a range of clients in the theatre, film and television industries. Some projects have been in bright rehearsal studio spaces and others on very dark sets where it isn’t appropriate to even use external lighting. We strive to create professional images whatever the situation and our clients are always happy. These relations and challenges have refined our process to ensure every stage from client relations to project management are on brief and on budget.

I can’t recommend Alex Mead and Decoy Media highly enough. He has a fantastic eye and his photographs of our theatre rehearsals really captured the spirit of the room. Top notch photography and lovely to deal with.
