Meet your photographer
A warm welcome and thank you for taking the time to visit my website and reading a bit about me as your photographer.
My name is Jon Harrison, I am a photographer, Image retoucher and designer based within Leigh, Lancashire, however as I am based around Manchester, I consider myself a Manchester wedding photographer.
My background has predominantly been within the Art and design sectors as I have always had a creative flare from a young age in primary school all the way through to University.
For my higher education, I attended The University of Salford between 2005-2008, which I did a degree within Visual Arts. After my graduation, I worked within retail until I did extra work within the image retouching sectors and finally obtained a job within a reprographics company in 2012. After 3 years within the reprographics company I soon realized I needed to spread my wings and do what I enjoyed which was photography.
Inspired by Guernsey Photographer Karl Taylor, Essex Photographer Alex Wightman and Glyn Davis I took the risk and left my job to pursue a career within Photography within the fitness and fashion sectors.
This was a huge risk as I was working self employed for over 12 months, however with risk comes success and I was able to get recognition from social media and online clients.
2016 I was asked to do my first wedding as I never advertised to do weddings as the market is so saturated with wedding photographers I felt there wasn't a need for another. However with my experience and dedication I did my first wedding within Wales and it was a huge success and I absolutely loved weddings since then onwards.
Now in 2017 going into 2018 I have plans for opening my first photography studio within Leigh to offer more competitive services within the fitness and wedding markets, attend and exhibit at Bodypower 2018 and to work with up and coming fitness brands across the U.K.
I look forward to hearing from anyone who contacts myself and please feel free to get connected.
