The beauty about photographing the Grand Theatre is that there is so much detail – you can always find something new to photograph. What is special about these unique photographic sessions is that people will have the opportunity to choose which part of The Grand they wish to photograph…they may even capture something that has never been photographed before!
“I love capturing detail and external structures. I have been lucky enough to photograph all over the world! My photography career has taken me to the outback of Australia, North Finland, and all over the Middle East. I still really love coming back to the Grand Theatre in Blackpool- it’s such a stunning building. On these photographic tours you can see for yourself what a joy it is to capture the history and beauty of The Grand in a photograph.”
