March 2017 - Matt Priestley Corporate
I spent a most enjoyable morning yesterday down at Arley Hall shooting some promotional photography for the Simply Cheshire event happening this coming May. All the exhibitors turned out for a big photograph, then we broke them down into more local areas to help with the promotion. Simply Cheshire was founded in 2015 by Suzie Dickens and Sally Jones who wanted to promote the breadth of talented and creative entrepreneurs that come from Cheshire. The event was a huge success, with over 2000 visitors, showcasing nearly 100 business. Encouraging new and emerging talent to come to the Simply Cheshire event allows new businesses to introduce themselves to their local audience, giving them a great local customer base from which to grow and develop. The event also fits well with the appetite for more artisan and local suppliers and not relying always on high street chains.
Business portraits in Manchester.
Another job completing staff business portraits at the Manchester office of Regeneris consulting. This thriving consultancy has new starters throughout the year and hence require their personnel photography updating regularly. We have settled on a clean and minimal style for the business portraits using just one light and an uncluttered background. Their new website goes live in a few days.
Manchester promotional public relations photography at Media City, Salford.
Media City based, Zeal Creative have just been announced as Breakthrough Agency 2017 by The Marketing Agencies Association, at their annual DoDifferent Awards ceremony in London. They are the first Manchester based marketing agency to win the Guardian sponsored award, and, only the second agency outside of London to secure the title.

The company were keen to celebrate their reward and feature the skyline of Media City so we cross the water, to the Imperial Museum North so we could use the back drop of Media City for the promotional photography.
