Contemporary Urban Portrait Photography - Sheffield City Centre

Posted on 17th October 2011 by Mark Tierney

I love urban shoots especially in Sheffield because of the wide range of buildings. Sheffield has it all from old Victorian industrial buildings to contemporary architecture. Grace and Justin are both architects so I can see why they chose these locations. We started off at the Victoria Quays which is a large canal basin near to the centre of Sheffield. The next location was the iconic Sheffield landmark the Park Hill flats. This building is Europe’s largest listed structure and part of it has recently been restored. On the day of the shoot it just happened to be the open day for the first of the new apartments. Being interested in the apartments - Grace & Justin were keen to have a look. I had to take advantage of this cool location and combine a viewing with a shoot wink The last location was to the redeveloped Wicker area of Sheffield including  Justin’s workplace. We finished the shoot inside the building using the modern  interior of the studio as a backdrop. Here are some of favourites from this very enjoyable shoot smile

Grace & Justin's shoot has also been featured on one of the UK’s top 10 wedding blogs – Whimsical Wonderland Weddings smile
