Earlier this month we were commissioned again to shoot for the Hilton group for some special commercial projects. Delighted we kicked off on home turf in Manchester. This first image came with the following brief. ” Please get a “Hero” landscape picture of our vertical tall building please. Preferably early morning”

Over 4 days we pretty much covered most of the hotel. Being Manchester there is always a good variety in the weather… not just over a week, you can experience 4 seasons in one day. The brief required us to capture night time exterior shots of the iconic landmark Beetham tower in a landscape format that encapsulated Hilton Manchester at night. Thank you weather gods…
