Expertise in the Photography field

At Manchester commercial photography we have progressively improved our position year on year. Both from an educational point of view (we now offer training and mentoring to organisations with in house media departments) and also from an investment stand point. We shoot using some of the latest kit including high end medium format cameras, utilising the best lenses and grip equipment on the market. When it comes to offering uncompromising images there is no better choice than Cedar House Productions.

Cost effective production process

Its a sad fact that many high end production houses now charge a premium for this level of image acquisition. We at Commercial photography Manchester feel that this is totally unacceptable and have never subscribed to this thought process. Constantly monitoring our operating costs we pride ourselves on being able to offer some of the most competitive pricing structures in the industry. We feel the level of service and expertise we provide will give you the customer the edge. Allowing you to concentrate on your core business and not worry about escalating advertising or promotional costs.

Our experience & knowledge really makes a difference

We understand how many choices our clients have and thats why we offer a range of choices seldom seen in mainstream photography. We want to wow you with ideas, push the boundaries of what can be achieved when we undertake your project. Offer a range of optional products that stand out as art rather than just ‘a nice picture’. Many of the clients we work with have little or no knowledge of how to model/pose. We always put them at ease. Successfully posing for photographs is a process of experimentation and practice, with the right help anyone can do it.

A highly competitive pricing structure

We don’t profess to be the cheapest, but I don’t think as a discerning client you want ‘cheap’. We do have however provide the best quality images at our price point. Operating from a small studio in north Manchester we keep our costs low and this allows us to offer you a great deal. Photography services Manchester have invested in some of the best kit available for portrait or studio work and this is a very exciting time for us. Our success has allowed us to develop our portfolio into other types of photography including architecture, infant and baby, maternity, sports and many other fields. If you have an event or celebration planned why not give us a call to discuss how we can preserve your day.

Its not just about the camera

Its worth noting that we dont just show up and shoot a ton of images. If it were that easy everybody would be able to create a good business for themselves. We actively share ideas with our clients, its important we can understand what makes you tick. Everybody has a different view of the kind of images they would like. Our aim is to embrace your concept and offer new and exciting ways of creating the final vision. Of course a large part of this is final post production and we are like many high end studios in that respect. We use industry standard software for post production to ‘paint’ the final images.

Photoshop artistry

Many production houses use Adobe photoshop, its become the industry standard. It is such a complex and powerful piece of software many photographers fail to use it to its full potential. Here at Cedar House we have many years experience using complex processes within photoshop to develop the kind of images you want. Indeed we have freelance photographers that rely on our editing experience to correct and edit their images. Below is an example of a highly stylised shoot we did where the client requested a specific style reminiscent of the ‘sin city’ look.
