I am a Fine Art Painter and I needed to photograph a number of large scale paintings (1 x 2 meters). Brilliant work, highly recommended to any artist... working on a large scale, super quality size photos for printing (I made prints of the same scale as the original art works - they look amazing). I also needed photographing 3 paintings (2 meters x 3 meters size each) at their current settings at Dakota Hotel in Edinburgh. Greg travelled to the location and worked very heard to resolve issues on location and dealt brilliantly with reflection of the glossy varnish. Fabulous outcomes again!read more

What our clients say

...he took a complicated brief and made it seem easy

"I have worked with Greg on 3 of 4 projects in the manufacturing sector. Every time, Greg managed to bring a creative flair to a series of highly technical project briefs, from capturing welding shots, photography of secure sites and general office environments. In my experience, Greg brought a human element to his photography showing the dedication and personality that is key to British craft. From capturing a 150-year old welding factory to a state-of-the-art high-tech manufacturing facility, he took a complicated brief and made it seem easy. I remember in particular his care and attention when listening to project managers, taking time to understand the intricacies of projects and working with them to ensure health and safety as well as stringent confidentiality measures were met. He was professional and dedicated in his work and had a skill in bringing the best out of his subjects. I would not hesitate to recommend him for clients in the industrial/engineering sector who want to capture images that will excite, educate and inspire."

Helen Murray

...he takes the time to truly understand the brief

“Having commissioned Greg on several occasions for factory photography and video shoots, I can highly recommend his work. He takes the time to truly understand the brief and what you are aiming to achieve; this combined with his knowledge and experience means that the quality of the work he produces is excellent. Beyond that Greg is a super nice chap to work alongside.”

Morag Girwood

Talented, creative, resourceful...

Greg is one of those rare photographers that can turn his hand to almost any task. Not only is the visual output exceptional, but the very nature of the way he works is cooperative, flexible and makes the whole process easy to manage. In short, It’s always a pleasure to work with him and receive images that are always on brief and really meet our requirements.

John Reynolds - Creative Director / Director

I've been impressed with Greg on every occasion...

I've hired Greg on a number of occasions to capture photos of our construction projects (both during construction and our glossy marketing photos) and to take photos of events and individual CV headshots. I've been impressed with Greg on every occasion and the team always remark on how friendly he is - he fits in quickly and puts people at ease. I think Greg's main strength is his architectural / industrial photography - he always creates really high-quality images that we can use on marketing literature and awards submissions etc.

Alison Pernavas - Bid writer

I was always impressed with the images...

I wholeheartedly endorse and recommend the services provided by Greg. In my time as the site manager for a large scale power plant development in Manchester, Greg and his team provided excellent photographic and video content throughout our 3 year construction period, which provided us with a top-class visual record of the development of the works and the people that made this development possible and ample high-quality material for branding and marketing purposes. I was always impressed with the images that Greg managed to capture, especially in things that I would have seen through Greg's photography in a completely new and interesting way. As well as providing an excellent, high-quality professional service, Greg worked very well with my team and adapted to and accommodated our requirements at all times. Greg also has a high level of safety awareness, a must on a large and busy construction site, with over 1000 workers at its peak. Thanks for capturing the images of our work Greg and creating a permanent historical record.

John McLoughlin - Project Manager

...I can't recommend him highly enough.

Greg was worked with us at Strategic North for many years, and I can't recommend him highly enough. When photographing our members of staff he always puts them at ease and produces first-class photos that we're confident in using for client work and our website. He's great to communicate with and is always accommodating to any request needed. A big thanks for your photos Greg, we will be needing you again soon!

Olivia Naden - Digital Marketing Co-Ordinator

the quality of his work has been exceptional...

‘I have worked with Greg Harding on a couple of different photo shoots and each time the quality of his work has been exceptional. Not only is he a great photographer, he has a great attitude that makes it a pleasure to work with him. I would definitely recommend Greg for future work.”

Lucy Stone - Research Communications & Marketing Manager

without doubt, he is the best photographer I have worked with...

I have worked with Greg for a number of years and without doubt, he is the best photographer I have worked with, he works with and pushes the client brief beyond expectations and we are always very happy with final results.
John Thornton - Senior Creative Brand Consultant

he never disappoints...

We have used Greg for several photoshoots over the years and he never disappoints. Always working within our agreed budget and delivering quality shots for PR use, Greg is a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended.

Georgina Phillips - Director

Couldn't ask for a better service! from start to finish!

Greg did a school photoshoot for us this week - we needed images for our website, prospectus, etc. It was an absolute pleasure to work with him - he listened carefully to our design brief and then extended this imaginatively to produce over 250 superb photos. Greg had a great manner with our pupils (and staff!), putting them at ease in a friendly, unobtrusive way and thus getting the best from them. The edited photos were with us within 24 hours of his visit. Couldn't ask for a better service! from start to finish!

Glyn Thomas - Deputy Headteacher

a consummate professional, with a friendly and personable edge

I have worked with Greg Harding Photography on a number of occasions now and I would not hesitate to use him again or recommend his work to
anybody else. Greg really is the consummate professional, with a friendly and personable edge. Right from understanding the brief and planning the shoot, Greg got a sense of our business and its needs almost instantly, he gave some great suggestions for shots that have ultimately turned into some of my favourite images from the shoot. Greg's results speak for themselves, the photos are fantastic and delivered to us within days of the shoot.
If you are looking for a commercial photographer, look no further.
Pete Styles - Director

every time his work surpassed all expectations...

I cannot recommend Greg highly enough. We used Greg's services on several occasions while I was at my previous place of work and every time his work surpassed all expectations. He is a pleasure to work with and always keen to recommend options to improve a project. We took his comments on board as we knew he was always right! Well organised, flexible and swift to produce the final product. Will always be my first port of call when I have a project and I'm in the area.

Hannah Jane - Marketing and Communications Advisor

always found his work to be of a consistently high standard...

I have worked with Greg on both pharmaceutical / medical and construction photoshoots and always found his work to be of a consistently high standard. He is very personable and helps clients feel at ease. He is also punctual and quick at turning out the end product. I would certainly recommend him.

Alex Henshall - Communications Manager

full of great ideas for getting the perfect shot...

Greg is a fantastic photographer - professional, personable and full of great ideas for getting the perfect shot. I happily recommend him to all my contacts as I know they will receive the same expert advice and excellent quality work that I did.

Gemma Hargreaves - Head of Marketing and Communications

...delivers work that exceeds expectation.

Greg has always been a pleasure to work with. Over the last 5 years, I have worked with him on a number of different projects in different global companies, on each occasion I’ve found he listens to the needs, objectives, and constraints of the project brief, then delivers work that exceeds expectation. He has worked with me and my marketing teams delivering quality work to a very high standard which has been used on international platforms. I would recommend Greg Harding Photography to anyone who wants great results from a marketing project where image matters.

It is really a pleasure working with you and your pictures sound life for all the people looking at them. For the first time in my 25 years career in tires, I have understood the soul of tires and the life they have and I have to thank you for that.

Daria Sala Della Cuna - TBR Sales & Marketing Director - Europe

...makes the experience fun which results in excellent image captures

Greg Harding has been the official professional photographer for Biofortuna for almost five years. During this time Greg has completed several photoshoots onsite in our research and development laboratories and in our manufacturing facilities. He manages to put all of those involved at ease and makes the experience fun which results in excellent image captures. His photographs truly showcase our facilities and the services we offer. I know from customer feedback how impressed they are that all images are real and not stock images. Greg's creativity is inspiring, I would highly recommend and I look forward to working with him again soon.

we received some stunning shots...

I’ve worked with Greg on a couple of occasions and it’s been a pleasure. He listened to our requirements, worked well with our team of volunteer ‘models’ (even if they did have to repeat getting soaked under a tank shower again and again!) and made it a fun experience. Post-production we received some stunning shots which have been well used throughout our online and offline communications and collateral.

Wendy Baker - Marketing Manager

The resulting images were outstanding...

The level of expertise and professionalism Greg Harding demonstrates are an excellent match for our demanding expectations. I first worked with Greg on an on-site photoshoot at a customer’s premises. The resulting images were outstanding and helped us to promote this pump to customers worldwide.

Mark Tamblyn - Industrial Sector Marketing Manager

...sees outside the box and is a first-rate collaborator.

Greg is a first rate creator, photographer, videographer and project manager. He always sees outside the box and is a first-rate collaborator. The NHS and HEIs could learn much from working with him.

Paul Brown - Head of Research and Innovation

...brings immense value to every project.

Brilliant photographer. Greg is our go-to guy for construction/architecture photography. In our case, working on projects which are stretched between different sites and locations throughout the UK. Greg is always extremely professional, easy to work with, and always delivers. His photographs are always to the brief, of high quality and he provides a quick turnaround, ensuring we meet our deadlines. Working with Greg is an absolute pleasure, he takes the initiative and brings immense value to every project.

Can’t recommend him enough.

Tom Vardy

Greg's eye for capturing industrial scenes is exceptional, been a pleasure to work with him over the last couple of years!
If you are ever looking for an Industrial Photographer, speak to Greg!

Benjamin Turner - Major Overhaul Project Manager
Carrington Power - ESB Energy

The resulting images really showcased our work...

Greg Harding was an excellent match for our construction project. I first worked with Greg on a construction project, at a customer’s premises located in Wales. The resulting images really showcased our project work and we use it to bid for further work on our website and other marketing streams. We're looking forward to working with Greg again on future upcoming projects.

Giedre Visockaite

He couldn't have been any more dedicated in helping us...

We hired Greg to work as our on-site photographer for a day-long conference we were hosting. He couldn't have been any more professional or dedicated in helping us to gain the shots that we wanted. He captured all of the elements of the day, including networking and presentations, and showed his experience in working scientific meetings before. We were so happy with the shots and I'd love to work with Greg again in the future.

Ashleigh Carver

I knew he would be the best guy for the job

We hired Greg for photography and videography of a new laboratory. Having been recommended Greg when I was in a previous role, but never had the chance to work with him, I knew he would be the best guy for the job having seen his work within the scientific/industrial sector.

Greg took the time to understand what we needed and was accommodating when I needed to switch schedules around. Working within a COVID secure environment wasn't a problem. Greg goes out of his way to get the best shots. Would highly recommend Greg and hope to soon him again soon.

Helen Dunning

Great photos and very easy to work with

corporate portrait
Greg was excellent. Great photos and very easy to work with.
Ashley Topps

The result was a number of fantastic hero images and stills for our specification sheets

We hired Greg for the photography of a number of our road-rail vehicles and attachments for use on our new website and various marketing materials. Greg was very patient in understanding our needs, ensuring a COVID secure environment, while being flexible on the day, working around our engineer's busy schedules. I had never worked on a professional shoot such as this, however, Greg had several great recommendations on the day to really capture our vision. The result was a number of fantastic hero images and stills for our specification sheets. We have since received great feedback from our customers and internally. On behalf of TXM, I would highly recommend Greg on his professionalism and level of expertise, and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Adelle Wilson

Exceeded my expectation

Everyone is really pleased with what we have so far and the main lab shots in particular far exceeded my expectation.

Mark Simmons
Marketing Manager at Biofortuna

He produced some fantastic images which the client is delighted with.

We chose Greg to produce a number of images for a client's new website and are really pleased with the work he delivered. Greg was easy to work with, interpreted the brief really well, and produced some fantastic images which the client (Incodia) is delighted with. Would highly recommend Greg for quality photography.

FAQs

How far will you travel?
Although we're based in Manchester, we regularly work with clients nationally and internationally, so if you have facilities that are further afield than the North West we can still help.

Will you help us put a brief together?
Absolutely. We find that being involved early in the creative process allows us to truly understand your company's marketing goals. We'll take the time to meet with you prior to the shoot, go through your ideas and help you visualised them. We provide a reccy service and we'll look at the areas you're considering and provide some feedback on areas that require attention prior to the shoot taking place. We'll be able to give you a good idea of what's possible and what's not whilst walking around with you. We ask lots of questions about your business in order to understand the message you're trying to tell your customers. The better we understand of your business objectives, the clearer we're able to convey these messages through the images captured.

Will you shoot video as well?
If part of the brief is to shoot either time lapses or video, provision will be made to incorporate these elements. I don't routinely shoot video without an agreed storyboard or without the direction from the client, but video can be incorporated into a shoot if required.

How much involvement will you need from us?
You can have as much or as little involvement in creating the images as you'd like. Generally my clients like me to initially take the lead and direct the shoot, organise the scene and provide direction for the models/staff members. Once you see the shot coming together, you'll be encouraged to provide your thoughts into the creative mix. We work collaboratively to ensure the brief is being met. However if you don't have the time or get pulled away we're more than happy to full-fill the brief without direction.

What if we don't like the images?
Honestly. This has never happened. We work collaboratively with you throughout the creative process. On the day of the shoot you'll be invited to comment and provide feedback on the various shots as we capture them. The brief is interpreted by the photographer, however, the vision of how the image finally looks rests with you the client, so we don't move on to the next setup until you're happy that we've captured everything you need. We believe that working with you alongside the shoot, there won't be any nasty surprises.
