Andrew Collier Photography I was born in 1962, in Wigan, Lancashire, but my family is from Leigh in Lancashire and in my early years we lived in the hamlet of Kenyon (now Croft) between Leigh and Warrington. Being the youngest of three children (by 15 years) I had lots of attention from my older brother and sister and my brother gave me my first camera!

I went away to school, firstly in Anglesey and then in Shropshire, where my interest in photography grew and I wanted to be a fashion photographer, but the careers teacher didn't think it was a proper job.I started work as a junior in a Manchester design and advertising agency and stayed in that industry for 24 years. However, things have a habit of working out and by chance I started taking pictures for my clients.

This led to me training as a portrait photographer, with weddings following. The result - my teenage ambition was about to be realised and Andrew Collier Photography was born! I still can't believe it, after a bit of a delay I'm doing the one thing I always wanted to do.
Highlights

read more › The bond between a dog and its owner is the strongest of bonds. The constant love our dogs give to us is a magical thing which is difficult to describe but is a delight to capture. I never set out to be a dog photographer, it just happened as a natural extension of doing lifestyle family portrait photographs and being asked if I could take photographs of the family dog while I was there. For nearly ten years I've been photographing dog portraits too, so I want to showcase some of my dog photography.

With every family portrait session I have one single, overriding goal; to capture the essence of the people I photograph. My clients are often amazed by how fabulous they and their families look in their photographs, and how I've captured people's characters. As a family photographer I've built up a reputation for doing this and my secret is simple: take time to get to know the people I'm photographing, let the session develop at a relaxed pace and above all, make it fun!

You can have the reportage style of photography to record the fun of the celebration and then you can have those upbeat family pictures you've been after for ages too! I think first it's really important for you, as the party planner, and I to get together have a chat over coffee about the occasion and decide what kind of images you and your family would like to have out of it.

We really liked your enthusiasm and the whole shoot itself both inside and out, informal and formal was just a breeze and a whole lot of fun. You made the beautiful woman I married look just super fab. Sometimes it's really nice to have some lovely pictures of just the two of you. It's easy to forget how much you mean to each other when you're so busy getting on with life.

It's what makes them fabulous, unique, yet affordable artworks in my clients' homes. I was asked to do my first equine portrait session in the Spring of 2010. I was surprised by the results and the client was absolutely delighted. Since then my equine portraits have really caught on and I've been doing horse portraits throughout Cheshire, Lancashire, Manchester and Merseyside. I love observing the connection and chemistry between horse and owner and capturing that relationship in my photographs.

The pictures above are proof! It's a fact - we all prefer to deal with people we can relate to. It makes sense to have business portraits that let your personality shine through and to visually demonstrate who you are. Professional but informal business portraits make an instant impact and will make your business immediately stand out from the crowd.

read more › The shoot's been done, the images chosen and worked on, together we've looked at how to best display those images. Will it be a beautifully presented photograph in a personally designed statement frame, a traditional canvas or a really funky acrylic, or a contemporary boxframe? Would you like a selection of images in one of our gorgeous lifestyle albums? The choice can be even more daunting than choosing the pictures. By the time we get to choosing frames or thinking about albums we've got to know each other pretty well and I have an insight into your lifestyle and personal taste.
