Professional and really great photos. AJ is an absolute star getting the most out of all the team for professional work photos! Would highly recommend and will be the first we would contact when we need another shoot in the future.

Really fantastic images of all our dresses! Quick service and so affordable! Will definitely be using this Photogrpahy studio again for mannequin photography. Thank you!
10:20 26 Jan 22
I must say - I have not said this about all other studio's I've used in my entire e-commerce profession for the past 20 years plus - AJ is a pro - he not only delivered the images a day after the shoot - but he re-named each and jpeg image to the description and SKU off the label tags.Unbelievable!! Even for the ones without any SKU he gave them point on description that helped my staff identify the product instantly and upload them before receiving the samples back. We have saved hours because of this and we didn't even request this.Appreciate you man and looking forward to booking again in the near future.For those who are reading this and deciding to book AJ's studio or not - I was recommended by a friend and his recommendation paid off - because if anyone else asks for photography services I will recommend AJ without a second thought!! 100%

We have now used Manchester Photography Studio for the past few seasons to help with our product launch. Just finished filming the new seasons collection and again we are really pleased with the results and speed of the editing to meet our deadline. AJ and the team are professional throughout and made the whole process easy. I would recommend to anyone wanting any filming or photography.

AJ charge my wife £200 for only one image .AJ is dis-honest and like people to make fool.my wife took a product and spoken to AJ regarding photoshoot.Aj only email her one image charge £200 extremely unprofessional and I consider this day light robbery.my previous review Aj denied about not giving us service I have emails and invoice to prove.I would like to worn other people that there are better places where people ready to help and honest.AJ you should be shame on your self.you should perform proper photo shoot of product including lifestyle shoot.I would like to know who is owner of this studio as I want to personally wants to talk to owner and discuss AJ scam big scammerSomeone else done products shoot for us very competitive price including lifestyle shoot,65 images also includes video as well.even before we contacted AJ person had done shoot did not charge us rediculous amount only problem was some of images didn’t have perfect images.we wouldn’t recommend anyone to Manchester Photograpy studio and surely you have lost great customer who could bring a lot business to your studio .

Contacted MPS regarding some e-commerce photography and was thoroughly impressed from start to finish on how AJ handled everything. My team felt comfortable at his studio and the shots that were taken on the day were of the highest standard. AJ was accommodating to my teams needs throughout the entire shoot. I’m already thinking about when we can next work together again, I couldn’t have asked for a better photo shoot. Would highly recommend. Brilliant work.
12:10 24 Oct 20
One of the best photography studios I have had the pleasure of working with. Great staff, freindly environment, very clean, well organised and most of all the highest level of professionalism. The efficiency and quality of work are premium standard. Look forward to working with them again in the near future.

I recently set up my own company as a creative consultant. I got my first client in September and was in charge of organising photoshoots and campaign strategies. I came across Manchester photography studio as they had really good prices and fast turnarounds.I sent some items of clothing to be photographed using the ghost Mannequins, unfortunately my client wasn’t happy with the end result. I also made it clear that I had booked a photoshoot with a professional photographer, two models, a stylist, a make up artist in studio101 for content images.Stating I would need the clothing back before Sunday as everything had been booked for the Sunday, to which they agreed.Because my client was not happy with how the product shots came out, even though they tried to meet the criteria. They refused to send back the items of clothing out of spite, which resulted in me being fired by my client and losing all my money on the booking of the studio, models, MUA, stylist, it’s really left me in a really bad situation.I tried so hard to communicate back and forth with my client and the Manchester photography studio, but how they handle the situation was very unprofessional claiming they had sent out the items when clearly they never intended on doing so.I will not be using nor recommending this company and will make sure my entire work network knows how I was treated.
21:36 28 Aug 20
I hired this studio recently and I was very impressed! Very spacious, great facilities and all the equipment you need. Will definitely be using this studio again!

I’ve had the pleasure of working with AJ as a male model now for a number of months. During the time, AJ has always maintained a professional and hospitable environment which has made working at the Manchester Photography Studio so rewarding. AJ has also done personalised test shoots for me to allow me to build my portfolio. He has produced some brilliant images and through his advice and expertises has helped me develop as a model pushing me out of my comfort zone, this has led to more opportunities within the profession.
15:49 18 Jun 20
Thanks to Manchester Photography for the amazing service! Model shoots we shoot with you are amazing and great price too! thanks!

We are very happy with Manchester Photography Studio who we use for all photographs we need of fashion items in our shop. We were previously with another company but are now paying less for better items and service. We love how they offer affordable model photo sessions too, which we felt really brought our brand to life.

I had many products to shoot for our fashion line. It was taking a while to find somewhere who could do the job in a certain time frame I needed without being charged extra. I recently drove past Manchester Photography Studio whilst driving to the other studio I normally use, but I thought I'd pop in and see what it was about.I spoke the manager there who explained everything they do and ensured me I would have the products photographed and completed within 3 days at the a better price than I was paying. I thought what have i got to lose.Anyway I got an email within 2 days saying the job had been completed and check to my email for proofing. I was more than happy. Thank you Manchester Photography Studio. I will be back soon.
15:39 16 Jun 14
We had an outstanding photo shoot today, excellent service, friendly staff. We photographed our products for marketing material, we had used another studio a few months ago but we wasn't too impressed which is why we tried Manchester photography studio and the results were amazing. This is a fantastic studio to hire with amazing rates, highly recommend!Thanks again,
12:37 16 Jun 14
My company used Manchester Photography Studio last week to shoot a mixture of clothes and shoes on our models. Great studio with lots of space and lighting. Free parking outside studio too was v helpful. I shall be back here again to shoot our upcoming collection :)
09:41 16 Jun 14
Very convenient studio tucked away in the Cheetham Hill area of Manchester, parking was in front of the studio. The studio itself is a blank canvas and lots of space for setting up almost any light setup and backdrop. AJ was very friendly and was always around for me to ask any questions, will definitely be doing a lot of my studio work here in the future.
09:31 06 Jun 14
Great, modern and spacious studio for a low price. Being on a low budget, professional looking photos didn't seem like an option at first for me, but at Manchester photography studio, i was provided with an excellent service and great quality professional looking photos all for an amazing price!
