Steve Forrest / Workers’ Photos

Monday, February 3rd, 2020

I am a Manchester-born photographer and artist who has recently returned to my home city after 25 years away. I have been a regular contributor to the New York Times, shooting portraits of famous people, interesting people, the odd nutter, together with cultural stories. My work has appeared in National Geographic, Newsweek, Time, Stern, International Herald Tribune, Intelligent Life, and The Guardian Weekend magazine. I am also a contract photographer with the International AIDS Society and The Union of Tuberculosis and Lung Disease, as well as being a member of Panos Pictures in London. In 2015 I completed an MFA in Fine Art at Goldsmith’s in London. So when I’m not shooting for clients or engaged in photography personal projects, I can be found working on my artwork in my studio surrounded by heaps of negatives, prints, a scalpel, and a pair scissors.

Two for Joy

Wedding Photographers

“Doubly cool, candid and contemporary wedding photography”

Two for Joy Photography is Nikki and Meg. Two big personalities with a real eye for the occasion. Two different styles – one formal, one candid – simultaneously capturing two very different views of the day.

Meg has a fashion background, is meticulous and creates incredibly beautiful must-have formal shots. Nikki is a contemporary artist with the split-second timing to grab those unmissable moments of pure emotion. Two photographers. Twice the shots. Twice the joy.

Lastly, there’s ‘JOY’ our vintage Photo Booth. Beneath her sleek wooden exterior, she’s packed with state-of-the-art tech. Essential Party starter.

Kevin Pack Photography

Monday, October 17th, 2016

Kevin shoots people (but only with a camera and lens)! It doesn’t matter if it is for family portraits, documentary work, stills for a new independent film, glamour images for “lads mags”, or images for fashion designers to advertise their collections  –  Kevin shoots them all. He is especially known for the cosplay images he has been taking for the last 40 years. Kevin’s images are regularly published in newstand magazines in the UK, Europe and Asia. But don’t ask him to shoot a wedding  –  he says that looks too much like hard work, and he just wants to have fun!
