“I’ve been incredibly passionate about photography from a very early age. Being a professional wedding photographer is an incredible job and I really do love it. Having previously studied Accounting and Finance at the University of Manchester back in 2008, I embarked upon a creative career to fund my studies but loved photography so much that I carried it on after graduating in 2011.”
“In my spare time I love to travel and see the world. Summers are incredibly busy for me so I take most of my holidays during the winter season. Snowboarding is my main hobby and I have been lucky enough to spend winter seasons in the Alps and in Lake Tahoe, California. I also thoroughly enjoy food (who doesn’t) and music.”
Shane’s natural approach
Shane’s wedding photography style is natural and contemporary. “I place a strong emphasis on creating images that are truly unique for each of my clients; telling the stories of their day and capturing natural moments as they happen.”
Many couples that I photograph don’t like having their photo taken. Feeling comfortable is crucial and the main way that I do this is by encouraging couples to really enjoy their wedding day and not worry about being photographed. A few relaxed portraits only takes around 15-30 minutes and the entire time I’ll get couples looking at each other, holding hands, laughing and just being themselves. I favour natural light as this enables me to capture the moments rather than setting up complex lighting.
Several magazines and wedding blogs have published my work. Wedding Ideas Magazine, County Brides and Your North West Magazine just to name a few. My images have also been used for the front cover of two magazines. As a photographer there is nothing better than seeing your images printed!
Manchester Fearless photographers member
Three years ago I was accepted as a Fearless Photographers member. This is a network of the best wedding photographers in the world and only 30 photographers in the entire North West have been included so this was a great achievement. We all encourage each other to continually improve our work and deliver the best possible images for our clients. I feel truly honoured to have been recognised as one of Manchester’s best wedding photographers.
