Ok .. So what exactly does “alternative portraiture” mean? – Answer in a nutshell… If it’s different – ManicManc Photography will photograph it!
From Barbers to burlesque to bikers – The wilder and whackier, the better.

Indeed ManicManc Photography has an impressive client base from around the UK including: HM Forces, Promotions Companies, Tattooists, burlesque troops, professional models, fire eaters, bands and bike clubs as well as work appearing as features in various national magazines and exhibitions in the UK and Europe…The list goes on!
With Jamie’s unique, punchy and often vibrant style of photography coupled with his creative ideas and vast experience of living the alternative lifestyle himself, Jamie’s ManicManc Photography has managed to build a successful business filling this particular niche.
With ManicManc Photography’ Alternative Portraiture a truly unique and bespoke experience is created in order to create images that give a truly “wow” factor. Time is taken before the shoot to get to know YOU and find out what really makes you tick! From there we thrash ideas around to until we settle on a theme – It could be a location shoot, a studio shoot or even something at home or the workplace utilising a completely wire free and collapsable, portable and professional studio.
The experience doesn’t end after the shoot either – ManicManc Photography is able to produce some of the highest quality print products available on the market! Having built close working relationships with some of the UK’s best printers based in London and Guernsey, you can be sure that only the highest grade materials are used and each image that is to be printed goes through a process in order to produce not just a print but a work of art! Whether that be a framed paper print using papers such as a textured baryte, or a fine art lustre paper or the colour popping metallic gloss. As if that isn’t enough you may opt for an aluminium, copper or brass piece or even a wood? Acrylic prints are also increasingly popular too – The choice is ultimately yours, but you can be sure on sound advice from ManicManc Photography on how best to display your cherished pictures and at a price to suit all budgets.
So what sort of EVENT Photography does ManicManc Photography cover?
Well to give you an idea on the depth of experience ManicManc Photography has in this field – ManicManc Photography has covered events both large and small. For example the famous “Ride To The Wall” (RTTW) for 3 years running. This event sees in excess of 20,000 bikers make an annual pilgrimage to National Memorial Arboretum from all four corners of the UK in order to pay their respects to our fallen heroes. ManicManc Photography has also been the main photographer for ComicCon which required a large team of photographers, editors and assistants to set up four studios and print stations to photograph fans with their favourite film stars / characters. In addition to this ManicManc Photography specialises in covering music festivals, live performances, biker rallies, bike and car shows, night clubs, tattoo exhibitions, burlesque shows, biker / alternative weddings, local authorities the list is endless!!
So why choose ManicManc Photography to cover your event? – Well experience aside Jamie’s ManicManc Photography has the ability to observe what is going on around him and is constantly looking for “that moment” to happen! It is the ability to pre-empt what is about to happen, rather than waiting for moments to happen and then reacting. The ability to pre-empt means the camera is ready before it happens and therefore those moments are captured!! This combined with once again Jamie’s unique shooting style means images truly reflect the mood, ambience and atmosphere of your event without too much artificial lighting. Indeed its worth noting ManicManc Photography is a particular master of low-light photography. Finally it is Jamie’s approach and ability to interact with people and get them to perform for the camera that sets him apart from many other photographers. Equally however, Jamie is equally able to blend into the background and become inconspicuous when necessary.
