It’s good to see a hard working and talented individual finally doing well for themselves. It’s even better when you’ve seen them starting off (on their first gig no less!), putting the effort in and finally making it in the bustling clubs of sunny Blackpool!
Lee Mobey is a quietly spoken Wigan lad who has a big heart and an even bigger voice. I’ve known and worked with both his Father and brother and it was through these that I took some promo shots a couple of years ago in a small club in Wigan.
After hearing of his success through his Dad ( Dave), I decided to offer my services again to get him some up-to-date shots for his promotion. I thought it would be a good chance to get the camera working again before the hectic wedding season starts in full swing and give me a chance to run some ideas past Lee for a gritty urban Wigan shoot in the near future! 🙂
On Friday 6th March 2015, we met up before his gig at Ma Kellys in Blackpool where we decided that as the weather was dry ( the best we could have hoped for given the time of year ) and we had a little time to discuss our shoot, what better way to spend it than to grab some shots on the promenade! We were aiming for the pier..but as we got closer, the steps looks very inviting.
I can’t wait for the Wigan shoot. I’m thinking a cross between “The Verve- Bitter Sweet Symphony” and Gary Barlow after a hedonistic night out..but I suspect Lee has other plans hehe.
I would just like to thank Simon Graham Photography for my awesome promotional shots that he took on a windy Blackpool sea front on Friday 6th March 2015.
As above, I am a professional Singer from Wigan and upon needing some photos and hearing a lot about Simon, I decided to give him a call.. After seeing his incredible work, I knew Simon was the photographer I needed.
We met for the first time and I find that sometimes it can be a little daunting meeting someone for the first time but with Simon, It was like meeting a mate you haven’t seen for a while. He was very smartly dressed, Polite and wanted to know my background and what I was looking for before sharing his ideas with me.
Instantly we got on and had a good laugh but at all times, Simon was professional and constantly scanning the scenery to get the best possible shots.
We decided to go for an industrial look but became quite fond of the steps on Blackpool sea front so decided to take some photos there and I think they have come out amazing!
I will never look no further for a smart and sophisticated photographer with an urban edge and eagle eye attention to detail – I would most certainly recommend Simon to anyone who needs a photographer, every penny spent is absolutely worth it and I believe the cost is reflected in his flawless and faultless work.
Simon will most certainly be used again!
