Featuring Manchester Photographer Christopher Devereux

Coming across different creatives from the North West is always a pleasure and today’s featuree is no exception. Here, we showcase a Manchester photographer who specialises in various fields and techniques; from special occasions to shots on everyday life, Chris’ love for photography really shows in his work:

Hi everyone I’m Christopher Devereux – a wedding, portraiture & street photographer based in Manchester! My first steps into photography started with the birth of my amazing daughter Ruby. She was the reason I made my first camera purchase with the sole intention to cherish those special moments of her life.

From there on I developed a passion for photography through all the genres but fell in love with portraiture and taking photographs of people. I’ve developed my style of wedding and portraiture from my love of street photography, capturing those once-in-a-lifetime emotions and enabling my clients to treasure them forever.

The motivation for me is that you never know what people are going to do next, whether it’s a bride laughing or a groom crying, these are the moments that help you relive those memories in years to come.

Street photography will always be my first love of all the photographic genres.I love the fact that it’s the purest form of photography. The excitement of never knowing what awaits around the next corner, the next street or the next turn of your head.

Most people walk down the street without a mere glance up from their smartphone these days…checking their Facebook, Twitter Or texting away most without looking where they’re going; every moment they don’t look they miss something magical.

My aim of street photography is to find the amazing and humorous in the ordinary . I want to share my view of the world as well as showcasing some of the unbelievable street artists we have in this country.

The plan for 2012 is to have my own or be in someone’s exhibition and even run a workshop on my favourite genre of photography which would be a dream come true so keep an eye out i maybe coming to a town near you!

Thanks For Your Time!

    Fab photos, I echo Janet’s like of the man getting on the bus – brilliantly captured!

  4. Cheers for the comments everyone, agree with your thoughts on the bus photo, it’s one of those where you keep noticing different things. I think Chris’ street photography nicely captures the bustling atmosphere in Manchester and I particularly like the Market street photo! Great work. James
