Lifestyle Photoshoots in Manchester - The Peak District
Location scouting can be a challenge when you decide you want to go for a photoshoot.
In my work as a photographer, I am drawn to natural areas as locations for my photoshoots. I believe this stems from a history of landscape photography. I love to be in beautiful environments and dramatic backgrounds, and while I am now primarily a portrait photographer, my love for these types of backdrops remains unchanged.
When I first moved to Manchester last year, I was filled with excitement as some of the most dramatic backdrops in the UK, The Peak District, would be on my doorstep! As much as I love street photography, I think that shooting in fields, meadows, on hill tops and by lakes can really add to the magic of the photoshoot (even with the UK weather!).
As I'd never been up North before, and the Peak District and Greater Manchester is a pretty huge area, I took up a new favourite hobby - Google Maps. Over the past few months, I've spent hours on Google Maps to make sure I find the perfect locations for each shoot I do.
I am quickly becoming well acquainted with what the Peak District has to offer.
The area has a bit of everything, from rolling hill scapes, to lakes and reservoirs, to cottagecore villages.
There is something for every shoot and I absolutely adore how unique and magical each shoot can be!!
Here are some of my favourite locations so far:
