ABOUT

OUR STORY

Michael brings personality and ingenuity, creativity and fire to your images.
On the Wynyard estate, the two-floor photography studio has a 56m2 versatile shooting space, a perfect canvas for fashion photography, family portraiture, newborn photography, pets or products. I have a designated make-up and hair lounge for any pre-shoot pampering, a cinema with seating for training or viewing your captured images, a complimentary drinks menu including champagne, kitchen facilities, bathroom and state of the art cinema preview room with a 10 person capacity.
Situated in a convenient location between the A19 and A1 in County Durham, I’m not far from Newcastle, Gosforth, Ponteland, Northumberland, Middlesbrough, Sunderland, York, Richmond, Harrogate, Darlington and Leeds. No location is too far, as international photographers we cover worldwide destinations and spend much of our time in London.
I have worked in the wedding and commercial industries, at London Fashion Week and featured on the front cover and in editorials for publications such as La Di Da magazine, ETC Magazine, Unveiled Magazine, Kiss The Bride Magazine, Belle Bridal Magazine and Amour Fou Manchester Fashion Magazine. We have worked overseas and photographed celebrities.
As an international photographer with experience in creating photographic sets, art based installations and importantly a wealth of knowledge and understanding of the challenges, budgets and daily operational requirements within the wedding, business marketing and events industries. I know what captivates clients and how to capture the wow factor in your advertising campaigns and wedding album. Whether I’m waist high in the sea, shooting from a boat or out of the side of a moving car window, nothing is impossible.
CARRO was born out of the idea that I could use my photographic and artistic talents to create captivating lasting imagery. The industry is saturated with stock photography and step and repeat shooting. Bespoke has a new dimension when it comes to CARRO shoots. I aim to personally provide you with our expertise, support and tools to empower you to develop and realise your photographic ideas and campaigns whilst most importantly remaining affordable.
