About Us

At SteelOrchid we have a passion for photography and for giving the best service to our customers. We are based near Manchester and specialise in covering the North of England but we are also happy to travel to meet the needs of our clients. We have won many awards for our creative work both nationally and internationally.

We can work to a full brief or you can give us complete freedom to use our own creative talents. With our understanding of people and the effect of light, we can create spontaneous pictures which bring out the best attributes of our subjects. Our friendly, informal and professional approach makes the photography fun, positive and successful for everyone involved.
