Ever since I’ve known Craig, he’s always had a thing for New York. I remember him telling me lots of stories about the city like he had been there. He’d say things like “I can’t wait to go to New York“ or “I wish we lived in New York“. I don’t mind living in cities, but my true dream would be to live in the countryside. Quite different from the big city vibes which is everything Craig loves. When we finally had the chance to visit New York, he was even more certain about his love for the city. His passion became renewed. And I completely understood why. It’s hard not to be inspired when living in a city as magnificent as New York. But when you don’t live there, you just have to make the most of what your surrounding. Yes, New York is for lovers, and so is Manchester.
Given what we do for work, we’ve learnt to discover the beauty in our city. Take for example the day of this shoot, we came across steam emanating from a corner of The Midland Hotel, which was very reminiscent of the streets of New York. We also discovered some hidden spots in a place we’ve been many a times and took some pictures there. We might not live in the big apple, but there’s still much to explore of our city and we do so everyday because somehow its become our passion. It’s safe to say Manchester is definitely for lovers.
