Wedding photography at the White Hart

Wedding photography at the White HartWedding photography at the White Hart, Lydgate, Saddleworth, Oldham for Wasili and Vivien.

Working at the White Hart is always a pleasure. It’s a great location on a sunny day with superb views over Oldham and Manchester and the gardens and grounds are ideal for wedding photography.

Wasili and Vivien wanted a relaxed, low key wedding with friends and family and that’s exactly what they got. The White Hart staff were brilliant and the weather was perfect. All weddings present challenges for photographers but, apart from compensating for bright sunlight, my day was a pleasure.

Stuart captured our wedding day superbly with outstanding professional photographs. His easy going style and good humour belied his professional approach. He will do what you say but he will also capture those magical unrehearsed shots that give life and colour to the day. Stuart is a thoroughly nice chap, easy to work with and a very good photographer.

Thanks Wasili & Vivien Schelowok

Concert photography Saddleworth: Diggle Blues Festival 2013

Concert photography SaddleworthConcert photography Saddleworth for the 2013 Diggle Blues Festival in Diggle, Oldham, Greater Manchester

Producing images for the Diggle Blues Festival is straightforward but choosing which to use to promote the event is a challenge. I usually pick out my favourite photographs then delegate the job of choosing to someone else. It’s good for me as it allows me to see what others find interesting. With some artists like Victor Brox, photography is easy as his presence and personality go hand-in-hand with his music. Just point and shoot, you’ll always get the shot.

St James’s Church, Urmston, Manchester

We would like to thank Stuart for making our day really special. We booked him after reading the testimonials on his website. Everything that his clients have said is true, he was fantastic. He put Dean and myself at ease and helped make our wedding day really special.  Dean and I felt we had known Stuart for a long time even though we hadn’t.

The pictures he produced were beautiful. He captured the most special and memorable parts of the day and I will cherish them forever. I strongly recommend Stuart who is professional, friendly and makes you feel totally at ease.

A touching story set in the heady days Keystone Studios, director Mack Sennett and comedienne star Mabel Normad created magic together on-screen, but backstage their tempestuous relationship was threatened by the pressures of Hollywood and the advent of “Talkies”.

Mack & Mabel was originally nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Musical, in 1974.

Full of memorable musical numbers including I Won’t Send Roses andMovies Were MoviesMack & Mabel is a poignant love story, set in a bygone age.

Audiocounsel, Sam Road, Diggle, Saddleworth, Oldham, Greater Manchester

I’m not normally one to write testimonials but we are delighted with the photographs Stuart took for us. We are so impressed with the quality and attention to detail that we have used them to revamp our website and, I can honestly say, they have transformed it!!

It was a chance meeting that led to Stuart doing some photography for us. From the outset we liked his personality; friendly, confident, easy going and relaxed. He is genuinely interested in his work and will do whatever is needed to make a project work.

Before the shoot we discussed what we wanted to achieve and in response, he built a photographic story around who we are and what our business is about.

On the day of the shoot, he made us feel relaxed and provided insightful advice using our ideas. After the shoot, we met to discuss his images and work out which would best meet our requirements. The meetings were constructive and really helped us to focus our thinking.

Before meeting Stuart we held the belief that commercial photography was too expensive for a company of our size. He has definitely altered our opinion on that one, he was a pleasure to work with. We think his work has helped to transform the image of our company. We cannot recommend him enough.
