'I’m an amateur photographer who primarily uses a Canon 40D fitted with a 24-105mm lens.

I love going out and exploring Manchester. The city has so much to offer from an array of different perspectives. Every time I leave my flat I find new subjects to photograph, developing new themes and techniques along the way. I push myself to get that perfect shot at that perfect time, making sure to capture a specific movement just how I want it.

This gallery is a collection of images I took over the last year. I wanted to give an impression of the historic qualities of the city and the wonderful people that inhabit it.'
